"I smiled and apologised when returning a bad meal. Then I tipped the waiter"

guilty!



#7 "It doesn't matter how cold it is - if it's sunny it's barbecue weather"


even if it isn't sunny....can't tell you how many times we shoveled a path in 8 inches of snow to the grill!


#5 "I consider people who take sugar in their tea to be lesser than myself"



I'm common as muck!

These are so true it hurts!
#13 My voice gets posher and more robotic when I speak to foreign people

This one sticks out because I have a dead Cumbrian (actually more west Cumbrian) accent, which is often mistaken for Geordie, which is extremely frustrating... So I have to talk posher to people that aren't from round here to get them to understand me! I don't mind really because I HATE hearing my voice... It's awful, I need to go to Miss Brahm's elocution lessons!

I hope you find a better teacher - Miss Brahms' elocution lessons never quite seemed to take. At least, not for more than about ten seconds at a time.
