For us Brits, social situations and awkwardness go together like gravy and mash.
Life can be tough in Blighty, and we love to moan about it.
The entire country had an astronomical meltdown when we heard about the new line up for GBBO. ‘What, Mary Berry’s gone?’ *chokes on cake*
Embarrassingly, most of us can say, at some point we have ran for the bus, missed it, but carried on casually running for a short while, so as to not lose face.
And then there’s the rain, the constant rain.
Here are some very British problems.
#1 The new Great British Bake Off line up in 2017… How will this work? Oh Mary.
#2 Summer officially starting, when you spot a topless chav.
#3 Shoppers fighting over the reduced price items at the supermarket.
#4 The price of the 99er Flake ice cream is now £6.25 in London. For those of you who live outside of the UK, the “99er” refers to the original price of 99p. Arrrrrrrrr!!!
#5 Spoiler alerts on the Daily Mail online in the same visual field as the exact thing that will spoil the TV show.
#6 Those Nationwide Building Society poetry adverts. Shut up you first class muppet.
#7 Being given the responsibility for choosing which charity to give your token to at the supermarket. Cats or care homes? Cats it is.

#8 Realising you can’t afford to shop in Marks and Spencer, even though every previous generation of your family has and still does.

#10 TV news channels interviewing randoms on the streets about the election and getting responses like; “There is too much politics happening these days.” *Cue face palm.*
#12 The office aircon wars are about to begin.
#12 Apparently the extent of our talent is sending a child onto stage to tell a bad joke.
#13 Parents kicking off about Channel 5 showing Watership Down and upsetting their little ones.
#14 Tesco’s ‘food love stories’. I’m calling BS on Frank’s ‘accidental salmon’ and as for ‘Nana’s special soup’ well done for advocating school truancy.
#15 When your payment card doesn’t tap first time when you get on the bus, and you hear three separate tuts from behind you.
#16 Parking machines (meters for our American friends) won’t accept the new pound.
#17 The council thinking that if they spray paint a box around a pothole, the pothole fairies will come and miraculously repair it.
#18 We’ve already used up our two allocated days of decent weather this year.
#19 If you’re visiting England this year don’t mention the railways, say the words Southern Rail or super off-peak to a Brit. Ever.
#20 People standing near a zebra crossing and chatting with no intention of stepping into the road.
#22 The amount of street dance troupes on Britains Got Talent. We all loved Diversity but enough is enough. *Cue broken glass sound.*
