Being British is best, but naturally, we can’t help but have a moan or two about the small things in life.

Public Transport

There is a reason why this is at the top of the list. Delays, cancelled buses, trains and no seats. This topic needs a whole article of its own, as this is the one thing we Brits complain about the most.

The Weather

Sad but true. You would think that us Brits would be used to having dull and dreary weather, but no, we’re not, and it’s something we complain about – a lot.

TV Shows

The fact that most of our favourite TV shows are only shown on American television channels that we don’t have, means we have to go to the trouble of watching them online, whilst blocking a million pop ups along the way.

Having No Milk

There is nothing better than a nice cup of tea in the morning. You’ve boiled the water, got out your favourite mug, have your tea bag ready, you open the fridge and…no milk. Brilliant.

Rubbish Wi-Fi

It’s hard to believe that in this day and age poor Wi-Fi is something we all still complain about – but we do.

Gas Bills

The cold and our love for tea take a toll on our gas bills, so when we see how much we have to pay, it sends us complaining and vowing to be more careful – which we don’t.

The Cost Of Chocolate

There was a time when Freddos used to cost 10p, or when you could buy a Nestle Milky bar for 25p, so every time you go to the corner shop it’s a painful reminder of the past, which sends us moaning.
