In a recent AskReddit thread non-British people are sharing all the things that they find odd about Britain. Things like when British people want to be really mean, they'll just proceed to be very polite to you. Now that's just unnerving. Or, on a more positive note; if a Brit invites you for a drink they very well might be talking about 10 drinks and a kebab.
