Stop pouting and be a bit more polite please
I was recently on vacation back home and couldn't believe how friendly and down-to-earth people were, despite my country going through some severe financial worries.
People acknowledging strangers in the street when they walk past, opening doors for people, giving the right of way to pedestrians, allowing other motorists to pull out into the traffic - very refreshing.
Then I came back here and it’s soooo different. Why does everybody take themselves so seriously here? I see worse pouts on show than Victoria Beckham - and that’s just from the men.
Nobody wants to give and inch, let alone allow another motorist to get in front of them in a traffic queue. Why are so many people like this, why do mentalities change when we move to the sand?
If we all took a step back and just became ourselves again this would be a better place.
