    Accurate much? I actually laughed when I found this! I have been living in the UK for a little bit more than a year now, and I am constantly surrounded by Brits (obviously) and their politeness. I can say that I have been in situations where I have witnessed these British ways of not sounding ‘impolite’ or ‘rude’, if I can phrase it like that! As much as it amuses me, I prefer when people don’t beat around the bush. Being straightforward saves so much and stress, in my opinion!
