If You've Done 26/38 Of These Things, You're A True Londoner

You’re not a true Londoner at all. You’re either not from London or, if you *are* from London, you’re not your ~typical Londoner~. You probably don’t walk around in a hurry all the time, and a fox has never followed you home. Lucky you!

You're not quite a Londoner. You probably work in London or have friends that live there, as you definitely have ~some~ Londoner qualities. But you're not a fully fledged Londoner just yet, and you still have lots of London things to experience, including but not limited to, having your food nicked by a seagull.

You're a true Londoner! Congratulations, you're a Londoner through and through, you know the tube like the back of your hand and know all the best non-touristy things to do. You have strong opinions about which side of the river is best, and you can't imagine living anywhere else but London.
