#81 Rob Temple: Very British Problems (Sphere, 2013)

Oh, so a bit of anxiety and mild OCD is not that bad, at least I’m not British! Right? I love the British sense of humour, self-irony and especially understatement. It was hilarious. But.

Probably, it shouldn’t be read in one (or two) sitting(s) as it is a twitter-turned-book. Let me explain.
Tweet – rotfl
Tweet tweet – lol
Tweet tweet tweet tweet tweet tweet tweet tweet tweet tweet tweet tweet tweet tweet tweet tweet tweet tweet tweet tweet tweet tweet tweet tweet tweet tweet tweet tweet tweet tweet tweet tweet tweet tweet tweet tweet tweet tweet tweet tweet tweet tweet – hahahaha! haha! haaa… meh.

Some are not exclusively British problems but rather insecurities. I think everyone can relate to these. Others are so very British but that’s why we love them. We can have a laugh at ourselves and at our favourite people, too.

I even learned something new. We call every pedestrian crossing zebra crossing. With lights, if there are traffic lights. The Bristish? They tried panda crossings (I can just picture that: wait and sit while you’re nibbling some bamboo leaves and looking cute. Now you can cross or just stay there and nibble some more). Now they have pelican crossings, puffin crossings, toucan crossings and… pegasus. Yes. For people on horseback. A separate type of crossing with a name of its own. You just have to love the British, don’t you?
