Things I've learned about London (so far)
● Everyone's overly polite. You literally say please behind every sentence and if you don't you're considered rude. People will even correct if you forget the 'please'.
- This doesn't bother me at all it's just very weird to me that the woman/man behind the checkout counter says 'please' when telling the price. It's not like I can refuse to pay now can I?
● You not only drive on the left side but tend to walk to the left as well.
- Very confusing when I've been taught to walk to the right my whole life.
● "Yeah you alright mate yeah?"
- English version of the American's "Hi how are you".
● Pubs close early. You're lucky if you can find a good nightclub that's open til 3 o'clock.
● People here are so nice! They'll gladly help you even if they don't know you. Sometimes they even come to you before you've had the chance to ask for it.
● Hogwarts isn't special with its school uniforms and British students.. That's how all schools are here.
● British people tend to choose the dirty tables in a resturant instead of the clean ones. Why?
● People will actually stand in que all the way out on the streets to get their starbucks coffee in the morning.
● We've had to cover our bottles of alcohol in a bag 'cause apperantly there's no public drinking?
● England is warmere than Denmark.
● If an ambulance drives by you are guaranteed to go deaf.
● Once you've been to Primark everything else is expensive.
● Most British celebs are only famous in the UK. I've never heard of 90% of them.
● British people love sarcasm. And moaning. And talking about the weather.
● Pants are underwear - trousers are pants!
● There's not a lot of English things - everything's basically taken from other countries. Even tea!
● Using the self-checkout in shops is not always the fastest way.
● Never trust the weather - it's true!
● English radio is much better than Danish.
● Nanna means grandma. Therefore I shall be called by my middlename whilst living here.
● People have a strange love for all things deep fried.
● It's really expensive to live in London. Like ridiculously expensive.
● There's always something to do or something to see in London.
● It's normal for strangers to call you 'love' and 'babe'.
