Not quite, but we did wear old school caps, a cross between a beret, and an eke-thump flat cap. but the teacher if a little larger looks very much like my old teacher, spooky, he was one of the old ex-military teachers recruited after the WWII, good teacher but took no shit

Another one that gets right up my snot box is when you are in the doctors, you meet somebody you know and they ask "Are you keeping well"? What the bloody hell do they think you are in there for? - buying new shoes? On one occasion, I was in the said waiting room awaiting my ears to be syringed. Some plank that I know kept trying to have a conversation despite me telling him that I could hardly hear. Mind you, for amusement purposes I am going to try to start a conversation with somebody waiting to have their ears done and see if I can wind them up.

Yanks hate it when you tell them they speak Americanish and NOT English. :cool:
They also get upset when you tell them they are American and not, British, regardless of where the kin folk started out from, when they argue, I ask what passport are they entitled?

I don't remember those white buildings with the blue roof that are covered in graffiti at Chatham?
