9780751552591: Very British Problems: Making Life Awkward for Ourselves, One Rainy Day at a Time

There's an epidemic sweeping the UK. Symptoms include: acute embarrassment at the mere notion of "making a fuss," extreme awkwardness when faced with any social greeting beyond a brisk handshake, and an unhealthy preoccupation with meteorology. Doctors have also reported several cases of unnecessary apologizing, an obsessive interest in correct queuing etiquette, and dramatic sighing in the presence of loud teenagers on public transport. If you have experienced any of these symptoms, you may be suffering from Very British Problems. Very British Problems are highly contagious. There is no known cure. Rob Temple's hilarious new book reveals all the ways in which the UK is a nation of socially awkward but well-meaning oddballs, struggling to make it through every day without apologizing to an inanimate object. Take comfort in misfortunes of others. You are not alone.
