How British Are You?

No pressure. But if you fail your passport will be rescinded.

Posted on
  1. 1. You're about to go on holiday, it's 7am, and you're sat in the departure lounge. What do you drink?

    A cup of Earl Grey
    A cup of Builder's Breakfast
    A coffee
    A pint (you're on holiday, after all)
    A glass of OJ
  2. 2. The hairdresser holds up their mirror, you hate your new haircut. What do you do?

    Politely ask them if they could maybe make it more like what you had in mind
    Call in sick at work for a few days to ensure minimum embarrassment
    Tell them it's "great", then go and get it fixed at a place round the corner
    Tell them exactly what you think, and refuse to pay
    Smile and nod, before tipping them
  3. 3. You're introduced to a new colleague but don't quite catch their name. How do you react?

    Ask them to repeat their name
    Avoid using their name at all costs by calling them "mate" and "hey you"
    Guess their name
    Ignore them forever
    Make up false stories about them so that they lose their job
  4. 4. When did you last have a cup of tea?

    You don't drink tea
    In the last month
    In the last week
    Earlier today
    You're drinking one right now
  5. 5. You wave at a friend in the street but then realise it wasn't them. Do you...

    Laugh it off, it's happened to everyone
    Chase them down to explain what happened
    Cry
    Replay the moment over and over again in your mind until something even more embarrassing happens
    Have a drink
  6. 6. You and your partner are both adamant that each other eats the last Hob Nob. How do you resolve the situation.

    Split it into two
    Do what they say and eat it
    Open another packet so you can both have one
    Argue about it and break up
    What's a Hob Nob?
  7. 7. Someone knocks into you at the bar and spills their beer on you. You...

    Get angry
    Offer to buy them a replacement
    Say sorry (it was probably your fault anyway)
    Pretend that nothing happened
    Try to make a joke out of it and become their friend
  8. 8. Your flat is freezing cold, but it's too early in the year to put your heating on. What do you do?

    Put on a record-equalling sixth jumper
    Put the heating on, who cares if it's August
    Sit there stubbornly whilst moaning about how cold it is
    Make a cup of tea
    Go to the pub
  9. 9. Are England going to win the World Cup?

    Yes
    With a bit of a luck and a fair wind they COULD make the final, then it's anyone's
    They'll lose the quarter finals on penalties
    Probably not, but let's give the boys our full support
    They've got about as much chance of winning in Brazil as Scotland do
  10. 10. You're sat in the window seat of a plane and need the loo, but the person in the aisle seat is asleep. What do you do?

    Gently wake them up to ask if they can let you out
    Risk lasting internal damage by refusing to say anything
    Cough louder and louder until they wake up
    Try to squeeze past them without waking them up, but they do, just as it looks like you're trying to sit on their lap
    Loo?!
  11. 11. You've started to bump into a new colleague on the train to work every morning. So you...

    Change your commute
    Arrive at work half an hour early so as to avoid forced nicities
    Talk to them, it's nice to be nice
    Ignore them forever
    Pretend to be asleep

There aren't many more British (or awkward) than you. The Empire is lucky to have you.

You got: As British as David Beckham's right foot

Or David Beckham's left foot, come to think of it. Though at heart you're British, you've seen enough of the world to make you realise there's more to life than emotional repression.

You're awkward. You're easily embarrassed. You're sickeningly polite. You're as British as they come!

You got: As British as Kevin Costner's Robin Hood

Which is to say, not very British at all. But you're probably a much happier, more well-adjusted person for it.
