# This a lot.
"I have no idea where I'm going, so I'll stand in the middle of the main flow of traffic, wondering loudly about how the very easy-to-read tube map works."

# Oxford Circus
On the pavement next to the tube entrance, right where it gets narrowest.

# Hello - I'm a Londoner.
As you know, we're all world-renowned for our friendliness, so, when I'm having a cigarette outside my faceless corporate building, you know that I'll be only too pleased to ACT AS A FUCKING TOURIST INFORMATION CENTRE.

# Londoners are (in general) such utter shits.
50% yuppie scum, 49% chav scum. 1% human.

# I think your mistaken
Working in the centre of London I would say I am more 70% yuppie scum, 29.5% chav scum and 0.5% human,

and 100% richer than you, don't you know!

# richer, but I doubt happier.

And I meant 1 % of Londoners are human. Not 1% of each Londoner.

edit- hang on, I live in Buckinghamshire. That's where all the rich people who work in London come back to. Well, some of them.

# Not that rich either really
I admit it, I have to eat Boots Meal Deals to afford my over inflated London mortgage.

*sobs quietly*

# I'm not in any way rich.
But I don't need to be, I've got everything I need.

# Well fuck you, then.
Thanks for judging me on where I live.

# You're ever so welcome.
Thanks for forgetting that this may be a website where people say things in jest. Christ, you can joke about rape, incest, child kidnapping, death, disability, racism, sexism, homophobia etc, but you can't make a sweeping statement in jest against Londoners.

Am I meant to think you're all lovely people now or something? Because I must say, you've convinced me. Sweet and friendly.

Oh, and by the way, most people on here judge Americans on where they live. Or is that different?

# I don't judge Americans
I don't judge anyone. I'd thank you to return the effort.

# I judge Americans on being fat, ignorant and stupid
Where they live is actually quite a nice place.

# excuse me,
could you direct me towards the British Museum please?

# Yeah - it's just over there.

# Yeah, it's just behind that big building
with British Museum written on it.

Yeah, just behind that.

# It always astonishes me...
...that most people are given driving licenses, given their incapability of walking, or even standing correctly.

# This absolutely
Also perhaps some tips on how to drag your stupid fucking suitcase containing enough crap for a trip to the North Pole onto the tube platform and then STOP DEAD to block the entrance.

Don't mind us, we only live here and are trying to get to work.

# I'm not bitching at you, so don't get huffy
but it amazes me that people who choose to live and work in London (that's CHOOSE) get huffy about tourists. Did you think it was going to be like the Archers or something?

# I've lived here all my life
It's my hometown, where I was born, and the centre of the industry I work in...
(, Thu 17 Jan 2008, 12:27, archived)
# Exactly, so you've got lots of experience with tourists.
I'm honestly not bitching, I just... don't understand why people have such a problem with them. I don't know, everyone seems to care more about things that don't matter in London.

# I have no problem with tourism or tourists
just people who don't think and stand in the way oblivious.

# I always think they look scared.
I get a bit frightened in the tube sometimes, everyone seems to know where they're going almost immediately, and you're NOT ALLOWED TO LOOK AT THE TUBE MAP. Ohhhh no, you should know it by heart.

Or at least, that's how some outsiders feel when we have to go to London.
