Makes you proud to be British - NOT !!
Having moved to Spain a month ago and thoroughly enjoying it, I failed to see why the British get such a bad press at times? Sitting in a lovely beach front bar having a cool drink with my good lady in Fuengirola,in the middle of the day,enjoying mingling with the locals and trying to speak Spanish to the locals, which they do appreciate the effort, we were amazed that a group of around a dozen males were being really loud and obnoxious sitting at tables. Swearing and talking about the sexual ventures they had been involved in at the top of their voices, obviously thier wives and girlfreinds were not around, To the tune of the ring leader shouting to a waiter oi pedro bring us a drink and hurry up, you get the picture. The bar went quiet as they continued to get everyones back up. Were these young teenagers oh no these were ex pat males average age 60 totally up there own backsides, we think from a golf club, and my god did they think they were the dogs dangly bits. People started to leave the bar. So to finish off do the elderly ex pats lose thier self respect that we were always brought up to respect our elders?? Its amazing how many more mature people in the UK always had a beef against the young generations and wanted to move to say Spain for a better quality of life and be respected more. I cant think of a better way to lose respect. REMEMBER - POLITENESS AND RESPECT ARE EARNED WHATEVER AGE GROUP - AND POLITENESS COSTS NOTHING !! unless you were born here, your a foreigner, just like all the polish and other foreigners in the UK. Dont turn Spain into UK part 2.
