1. What's with your rivalry between the north and south?

We thought we were bad enough with the whole Glasgow vs Edinburgh thing, but you guys take it to a whole new level.

2. Why are you so afraid of everything?

It's a fox, not a lion.

3. And why did you think this was OK?

Really? Didn't anybody realise?


4. How are you all so polite all of the time?

"Honestly, it's fine, look... don't worry about it" - Translation: I will never forget this. Never.

You really need to let off some steam once in a while.

5. WTF is all this Pimms chat?

Is it a drink or is it a salad?

6. How many meals a day do you want?

Elevenses, brunch, supper, tea... is three just not enough?

Bap, cob, morning roll, batch, barm cake, stotty... please make your mind up.


8. Why do you think that all Scottish people love deep fried mars bars?

Where did this come from? Never tried one. Never will. Never even seen one for sale. Stop asking.

10. Do you guys actually watch cricket?

If so, why? It's like adult rounders but more boring.

11. Why don't you have free wifi on your trains?

Don't think that would prevent much nuisance.

Dear Hay Fever, Please sod off. Yours hopefully, Lots of people

12°C and up is taps aff time!

Just enjoy it.
