Only in Britain...

… can a pizza get to your house faster than an Ambulance.

… do Supermarkets make the sick people walk all the way to the back of the store to get their prescriptions while healthy people can buy cigarettes at the front.

… do people order double cheeseburger, large fries and a Diet Coke.

… do banks leave both doors open and chain the pens to the counters.

… do we leave cars worth thousands of pounds on the drive and put our junk and cheap lawn mower in the garage.

… do we buy hot dogs in packs of ten and buns in packs of eight.

… do we use answering machines to screen calls and then have call waiting so we won’t miss a call from someone we didn’t want to talk to in the first place.

… are there disabled parking places in front of a skating rink.

And did you know....
