    Default Proud to be British

    Being British is about driving in a German car to an Irish pub for a Belgian beer, then travelling 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 British thing of all ? Suspicion of anything Foreign.

    Oh and only in Britain ... 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 store for their prescription. While healthy people can buy cigarettes at the front.
    " " " " ... Do people order double cheeseburghers , large fries, and 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 leave our junk in the garage.
    " " "" " ... Are there disabled parking spaces in front of a skating rink

    #3 JDS True story. I worked with a girl who ended up in hospital ortho ward because the metal clip on the back of her bra actually penetrated her spinal cord.

    I did read that in UK more men and women are injured doing DIY than are killed on the \roads
    And the number of limbs cut off by using chain saws is some record I hear.
    Happy daze John in Oz.

    Life is too short to blend in.

    I have to say John i enjoyed and had a good laugh at the stats on Brits, For me i find we Brits dont complain enough if we get short changed or a bum deal, I am a pain in the butt when i no i am getting ripped off dont matter who the hell it is or for what amount even if its pennies i wont drop it, I dont know how many times i have heard the old cliche oh it doesn't matter its only pennies. If every adult over the age of 18 was to give you 1p do you have any idea what that amounts to. Terry.
