The Brits are a passionate and stubborn lot, and nothing can knock down their strong wills. (Says one)
So I grew up in Australia, where normal ways of communication can be seen as blunt and rude by others, but to us it's a normal, and a mutually appreciated and respected way of communication... We say things as we see it and call it what it is... However, I find that English people tip toe around the subject as to abide by the overexaggerated consensus of political correctness in order to avoid offending people...
So where an Aussie would call a spade a spade, the English will call it a fork, spoon and a knife before calling it a spade and find the aussie's 'cut to the chase' approch abit forward and offensive and that a different and more sensitive approach should be taken... Lol I think it is just what each country considers 'normal' because Aussie's don't find their straight to the point-ness offensive and we much rather the clearness in communication, and beating about the bush can seem more rude to us than actually just calling it what it is and saying what we see.
I know! Someone will purposely get in my way, and I will be found saying sorry, not the other person. - SansTheComic
