      Manners/empathy

      Why is it that English people think they are so gracious and well mannered, its a fallacy, I have travelled in quite a few countries.    eg train stops in between stations, in LA, Miami, wherever, an announcement is made, ''sorry for the delay, someone has jumped in front of the train.   In most countries people start up a conversation, ''It is such a shame that people get so desperate, they resort to this type of thing, hope they are OK, such a shame, and OMG what will their families, feel''

      In London the typical conversation is ''Some people are just inconsiderate bastards FFS jumping in front of a train, now I'm gonna be late for work''

      Don't get angry
      when others are talking behind your back... because they're just proving
      that your life is obviously more interesting than theirs.
