Before heading out last Friday in the daytime, had a few people meet at our place so we had more time to get ready.
Later I overheard a conversation from the Dutch contingent of our group. They were laughing because when they’d arrived, we were eating toast and drinking tea with milk in it. They thought this was a stereotype and found it hilarious that we were actually doing it. This was made worse by me being the last to get ready so I was literally just eating toast with butter on to save time. None of us had considered it at all weird, but yeah, I guess it’s very British innit.
Later one called me a chauvinist because when a Tom Jones song came on I pounded my chest and told everyone he was Welsh. I was mortally offended, then discovered I didn’t know the meaning of the word chauvinist. I mean, I’m still not one, but yeah.
Any other incidents like this?
