Being English is about driving in a German car to an Irish pub for a Belgian beer, and then traveling home, grabbing an Indian curry or a Turkish kebab on the way, to sit on Swedish furniture and watch American shows on a Japanese TV. And the most English thing of all is suspicion of anything foreign.
Only in England ...
can a pizza get to your house faster than an ambulance.
do supermarkets make sick people walk all the way to the back of the shop to get their prescriptions while healthy people can buy cigarettes at the front.
do people order double cheeseburgers, large fries and a DIET coke.
do banks leave both doors open and chain the pens to the counters.
do we leave cars worth thousands of pounds on the drive and lock our junk and cheap lawn mower in the garage.
do we use answering machines to screen calls and then have call waiting so we won’t miss a call from someone we didn’t want to talk to in the first place.
are there disabled parking places in front of a skating rink.
Except I’m not so sure this is ‘only England’.
