The English in BS AS

ARGENTINA | Sunday, 13 September 2009 | Views [314]

The English must be the oddest group of people in the world.

In Racoleta cemetry I was greated by a very posh sounding woman, who said she was English. She overpronounced all her words and was very odd. She then called us scouse boys and said "bye mate!"

A sweet old lady stopped to help us when we were looking lost,she said in English, in the poshest accent possible "can I help you?" I asked her the way to Santa Fe and she had no idea what i was talking about. She was obviously English decent but toatally Argentine.

A Businessman heard us talking in English. He stopred me and asked if I was from Hollywood. I told him I was "Inglese" and he kept saying Hollywood. I said I was not from the US and he replied you should come from Holywood like Al Capone and advised us not to be english.

If I hear that we are fat, lazy, unhealthy, or alcoholic again I am going to scream. Also why does everyone think that london is violent and dangerous and that all the English are drunk?
