Kata Ha Jime Posted November 4, 2011 Share Posted November 4, 2011 Why? I ask you. What I'm talking about are the little things we do, as people. Maybe some are truly British, maybe some are global but we still use them, possibly every day. Still not sure? An example then - Someone is talking to someone else and you need to get past, you're not one for saying "Excuse Me" to strangers neither do you want to scream "Move It!" so, you cough, or clear your throat, as many times as possible, then once you are noticed you move on with your day. I bring this up because whilst in town last Saturday, I was waiting for the bus and these two blokes were having a chat and an older gentlemen wanted to get by. These guys ddin't see him fair enough and he didn't use the "Excuse Me". He instead did a little cough, they didn't budge, bit louder cough, nothing. So he pretty much coughed at the nearest one until he moved and the old man walked by as if nothing happened as the two blokes continued their chat, as if a man had not just coughed on them. Another example. Just because I stand somewhere, does not mean I am a queue. Though saying that I am known to join queues for no reason at all. So over to you, can you think of anything we do like that, or any experiences, or even something you do... Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
