The following stroy was originally written in June 2008, at a time during which I should have been doing much more important things than writing blogs. It proves the power of procrastination. If you want to get things done find something more important to do first.
It also shows the impact of timeliness on the relevance of a story. I wanted to tell some anecdotes about life in the UK from a foreigner’s perspective. Quickly, some stories formed in my head, notes were made, drafts were written. Of course, once the ‘Other More Important Project’ was successfully completed these stories never got finished and my blog slipped gradually into a hiatus.
Much has changed since then, most notably that I don’t even live in the UK anymore. Also, I have reached a point where I can think about getting back into blogging. So, why not start with something that is already half-formed to ease me back into it?
Thus, without further ado, please find below a little story about my first “real” encounter with British class culture.
