The British like forming queues. They queue up when waiting for a bus, theatre tickets, in shops. They don’t like it when a person gets on a bus without waiting his turn. The British may get really annoyed with queue-jumpers — people who don’t wait their turn in the queue.
The British, especially the English, are more reserved than the people of many other countries. They don’t like to show their emotions. They usually don’t easily get into conversation with strangers. They don’t like personal questions (for example, how much money they earn or about their family life). They take more time to make friends. They would like to know you better before they ask you home. So don’t be upset if your English friends don’t invite you home.
These days most people in Britain do not wear very formal clothes. Of course, when they are ‘on duty’they have to obey certain rules. You cannot imagine a bank employee without a suit or a tie. But when he is no longer ‘at work’, he can put on an old sweater and jeans, sometimes with holes in them.
In recent years smoking has received a lot of bad publicity, and fewer people now smoke. There is no more smoking on the London Underground, in cinemas and theatres and most buses. Many companies have banned smoking from their offices and canteens. And non-smokers can be rude to smokers who break the rule and smoke in public places.
In some countries it is considered bad manners to eat in the street. In Britain it is quite common to see people having a snack while walking down the road, especially at lunchtime. Nobody pays attention to it as it seems quite natural.
