    By **** we are a grumpy ****ing nation.

    Where did the simple 'good morning' or 'thank you gp?

    No ****er hardly speaks anymore.

    Is everyone grumpy?

    I generally meet people with politeness (believe it or not) but will respond in kind to whatever tone they set, in fact often much worse.

    If for example a fat sloppy Onslow looking motherfucker doesn't say thank you if I hold the door open for him I'm quite happy to tell him "Oh yeah, god forbid you burn a calorie saying thanks".

    I mostly love everybody though.

    Mobiles have replaced newspapers on the trains. Before they came everybody would studiously ignore each other by reading their paper. Now it’s their phone..

    I also had to get used to the way things are done differently here too. They don’t say please and thank you all the time like we English do. Like they’ll give you your change in a shop or at the market and just day ‘toma’ which literally just means ‘take’

    At first you think they’re just ****ing rude or it’s because you’re English - and sometimes it is. But generally it’s just that that’s the custom here.

    This.

    I always start super polite but I expect it in return otherwise I will call you a ****.

    Yesterday in the supermarket there was a hot MILF who needed help picking up some shopping she’d dropped. Stan appeared like a superhero. She said thank you, smiled and I took a mental picture for later.

    Then I had the checkout experience I mentioned in another thread.

    I'm known for being a bit blunt in work, last person I pissed off was one of the girls on the team who cracked a rubbish joke to which I replied, "you might want to take a look at your sense of humour and have a rethink".

    Most women, at some stage or another will say to me, something along the lines of

    'I can see why you can't hold down a relationship'

    :emoticon-0136-giggl


    But I will happily help an old lady cross the road...:)

    I'm exactly the same.

    I'm probably the politest person you'd ever meet but also the rudest person you'll ever meet.

    I'm a **** .... but a rather polite one.

    I smile a lot, partly because I've got a big willy, but mainly because it costs nothing and those people that like you will appreciate you for it but, more importantly, those that dislike you start to wonder what it is you might have on them and it makes them nervous and even irritated <ok>

    depends on the time of day, I usually view it the same as planes, it ain't going anywhere til everyone's on, so I just keep leaning on whatever I'm leaning on til everyone's on.
    If it's rush hour, **** you, I'm on it first. (unless it's obvious you need a special seat, like old, crippled or with a baby)
