Because you don't want to mildly inconvenience anyone by asking for "English" tea.

They're not your usual type but you need to while away the hours however you can.

15. You will tell distant relatives blatant lies about your life.


"Yep, I just go to work, go home, and sleep. And then see my parents on weekends and help them with housework. Family's just so important."

"Next song", you'll say every time someone tells you to dance, knowing full well that song will never come.
