Default British Expats

Does anyone else find other British expats a little embarrasing at times?

No one on here. I meant in real life.

I find the ones most embarrasing with really thick regional accents who slag off the Uk at every opportunity, but whinge when they can't buy bisto.

You know the ones I mean. They are the ones on Australia Day dressed head to toe in Australian garb, completely drunk by 10.30 am.

They have usually lived in Australia for about 3 months.

Because I have self respect?

I don't want to be associated with some of my "fellow countrymen".

Not someone else, but I was in a cafe in Melbourne last weekend and found a copy of the international edition of the Daily Express - big union jack beaming on the front page. Reading it made me fairly embarrassed to be British - I hope noone else in there read it!

A couple of years ago my newly arrived, eldest brother threw a tantrum in front of the Telstra guy because he couldnt get wireless internet in his suburb. Unfortunately for my nob of a brother, nobody in Australia could give two shits that he thinks hes the Alan Sugar of Adelaide.

How embarrassing.
