One thing the British are good at is putting themselves down...do the ones who do it eg. on here,think they are "different" from the rest of the Brits?

I just wanted to start a thread to find out exactly what people feel are the difference between British and Spanish people. Whether it be a big or small difference, please feel free to join in and let us know.

And it's Shall we run a book on what he was before? because who is me, and strangely enough I've always been me.

Plenty of other nations do this as well. You really do think Brits are a race apart don't you? The reality is there is good and bad in all countries. For example in England Yorkshire has the nice people, the nasty lot live in Surrey!

Not so much a reply about the people but more about obtaining qualifications.....how easy is it to get a qualification in pretty much anything over here compared to the UK!
One of my apprenticies was telling me how he's going to study to become a doctor. If I said this boy had poca luces it would be an understatement......more like sin bombilla. I suggested to him that this might be a difficult thing to learn and he went on to tell me how easy and quick (4 years) it is (mentioning on how it used to be much harder but is easy now) which is not a very comforting thing to think that this boy could be my future quack.

He obviously doesn't have muchas luces. Medicina is one of the hardest degrees, and it is SIX years, not four.

Don't worry mate, there are a few retardy cliques with a few hundred thousand posts between them, unfortunately not too many brain cells to rub together.
I tend to lurk so as to avoid engaging with them on a regular basis. Your thread is of course valid and has produced some interesting ideas.

Well, it didn’t take long for the truth to out, even in cyber space.

Thanks for that advice Goaty. I think that you are right. Next time I introduce something on here I will just sit back watch, and wait for the outcome without becoming too involved.
Have a great week.

Sorry Busters mum I think that you failed to mention this bit.......

I can assure that I am not a rude person at all, in fact far from being so, but when someone makes a rude remark about me, of course I will retaliate.

Always make sure that you read and follow a thread fully to know exactly what is going on. It is very apparent from some of the silly remarks that people are not doing so.

Agree with his comment about waiting to pay though, I'd rather pay as I go along. Seemingly it's happening more in Spain now, especially since the smoking ban, people having a few pints, popping outside for a fag, never to be seen again. The famous "sinpa" has tripled since the no smoking ban. But they're probably all Brits anyway!

That'll be CM's football team, by the sounds of it! They like to ignore people.
