  • hello we are Joel & Lia and this is 10 things that British people hate about

  • themselves so recently Joel came across an article in The Independent

  • online and it was all about the 10 worst things Brits hate about themselves and he

  • sent it to me immediately and we were both kind of like do we agree with this

  • but we want to talk about it online yeah so Brits were given 10 statements that

  • are basically stereotypes about British people and they were asked whether they

  • agree or not so some of these ones we're going to discuss British people don't

  • really agree that we're like this but it is still a stereotype and the others we

  • do agree that we are like this yeah there's so many I disagree with but

  • we'll get into that in the video! Okay, shall we start with the first one? yeah so the first one's quite

  • obvious and that's because 42% of Brits agree that we drink too much alcohol

  • yeah so we made a video on this actually on our channel all about British

  • drinking culture and how it's so much a part of who we are, it's like

  • you know in the pub going out for drinks drinks drinks drinks yeah and

  • yeah no I do agree with that one I think it's a mindset in the UK we don't see

  • alcohol as being damaging no we see stuff like meat being damaging. Yeah, not all Brits but I think a lot of people

  • are like waking up to the awareness of meat and being like "woah, this is really not good for our bodies" but then we just drink loads on weekends!

  • It's like when you meet vegans that smoke and you're like it just doesn't ring true yeah coz you're like

  • you care about the planet and stuff or you're like carcinogens into your body! yeah it's

  • weird yeah we do drink too much not us not us! We're such lightweights three

  • drinks and we're gone and we're like on the floor, "hangover!" so 37 percent of Brits agreed with this that Brits are

  • ignorant of other cultures I can't say I don't agree I think it's more funny that

  • 63% of Brits disagree that we're ignorant of other cultures because we so

  • are definitely are we go on holiday and we just assume everyone's gonna

  • speak English to us 100%, yeah we only speak English which pisses off

  • other countries being like "why are you just speaking English to me you've come to my

  • country?" yeah I've been around like a dinner table where you've got people

  • from everywhere and like this person speaks four

  • languages, this person speaks "blabla" and then like goes over to the British

  • people like guessing you only speak one? And you're like "yeah" I think it's an arrogance

  • that comes with the country though I do think Brits can be quite arrogant

  • because we're just taught that like we're amazing we're like the best

  • country in the world like, I don't think we'ev ever been taught that but we've spoken about this in another video

  • No one's explicitly said it because this country isn't that patriotic. Imagine if

  • teachers were like "you are amazing!" but I think comes with the history of like the British

  • Empire we used to rule the whole world pretty much and like it comes

  • with like well of course you'd speak English why would we speak your language

  • yeah old people that are like "we deserve this!". 27% of Brits agree that we complain too much and when

  • Joel sent it to me I was like we don't and you were like hun we literally complain

  • all the time the other day we had the worst day and literally we spent about

  • 14 hours together and literally the whole day we were both complaining

  • complaining complaining at each other it didn't bring either of us any further down because

  • we couldn't have been any lower that day, no and it just bonded us even more over how much

  • we were moaning. I love moaning with people, me too! Yeah we do moan a lot, it's a dark pleasure to want to

  • moan together yeah we like indulge in each other's

  • moaning yeah I just realised that in another video

  • loads of American viewers were like "I can't believe you say the word moan for

  • like what's it, complaining". Oh you're joking! Coz moan to them is like .... moan here is like complain!

  • Cut! So 22% of Brits agree that we are intolerant to other sections

  • of society which i think means that like we're in this section

  • like for example we're like white middle-class millennials and we're intolerant

  • of like someone in a different section 'intolerant' like literally I'm allergic

  • to you, almost! yeah yeah unfortunately loads of Brits are yeah completely and socially

  • intolerant to other people that don't fit into their norm

  • definitely especially the one I can think of the most

  • at the moment is age there is such a huge gap in our country at the moment between

  • Millennials and like baby boomers and like the next generation up. "baby boomers" I love that word "baby boomers"

  • but everyone hates on Millennials and says that we're selfish self-absorbed all these things

  • and I think and we think that they are selfish and like privileged and all

  • these things so I think there's a big intolerance between generations at the

  • moment that's amazing... well that's an amazing point that's what I meant, obviously it'd be great if there wasn't and similarly with

  • class like we said at the beginning just people that are from one section

  • one pocket of society that are just unable to merge

  • with other... you know, I live in a London townhouse across the road are a big block of council

  • flats the people on this side of the road do not speak to people on this side of the road

  • I don't know why if I see someone at the bus stop I'll say hello. If they say hello to me, I don't just say hello to people "hello! I live on this side, you're on the poor side sorry"

  • but you know I've noticed that and I do agree yeah 19% of Brits agree that

  • British people are lazy I completely disagree I wouldn't necessarily say

  • we're not lazy I just don't think we're any more lazy than any other country

  • yeah I think this might come from like when you hear about Brits not wanting to

  • take other jobs like car washing, jobs you know you never really meet

  • a British barista anymore at a coffee shop we don't want those jobs and that

  • probably.... because my bathroom's being redone at the moment for like five days

  • we've had builders in and they're Polish and they're great and my flatmate said

  • to me the other day he was like "I really like them like they work so hard

  • they've got such good work ethic" and I was thinking yeah you're meaning

  • like as opposed to Brits who'd just be lazy and just be like "I'll do it when I want"

  • There are still some British people doing these jobs yeah but there's just been like an

  • influx in eastern Europeans taking on these jobs and doing them

  • really well yeah like my mum won't let anyone else

  • clean that car other than eastern Europeans! yeah they're amazing. They are good. so if any of you are watching from

  • Eastern Europe you are very good at working hard. I find that SO uncomfortable, I know, same! "You do a fantastic job" but that's what I hate about

  • Brits when they say that about other cultures " oh they work hard"

  • yeah I'm just like ..... "Maria in Costa Coffee you make a fantastic Soya Latte"

  • thank you yeah my cleaners Bulgarian and she's fantastic

  • yeah so I guess Brits in that sense, they're lazy in terms of like getting your hands dirty

  • and getting down to the graft of it yeah 18% of Brits believe that we have bad

  • eating habits I don't know that that's true. What does that mean? For me what that means is eating on

  • the go not preparing meals not being bothered to an extent I do agree think

  • about whenever you're overseas and I dunno with you it's kind of America, even worse

  • but like if I'm in like Greece or Cyprus or France it's big salads it's big

  • healthy nourishing food yeah think about the crap we eat in London so many carbs and our

  • staple is potatoes that's our thing and bread bread and potatoes that's pretty much it

  • i don't think we eat well and I think a lot of people don't know how to eat well yeah and there's not a

  • lot of education on eating good foods here. Also what highlighted this to me I

  • think is the KFC shortage we had a chicken shortage here in the UK

  • loads of KFC branches shut down and in the US apparently well I didn't realise

  • how much people went mental for it in the UK there was people being interviewed on

  • news in tears being angry being like "I've come for my chicken and I can't get

  • it" and then people were paying hundreds of pounds for like chicken that they

  • could get ahold of and I was like does it mean that much to you

  • that you're like oh because KFC to us is like a treat if it's closed we'd be like

  • okay well who cares but to these people it was like I need this chicken from KFC

  • unbelievable it could have been a stunt. we should try that we won't post any videos the

  • no one would care "we need Joel & Lia!". The next one is being pessimistic so 17% of Brits agree that we are

  • pessimistic rather than optimistic so I guess that's kind of like they complain

  • too much but I guess is saying something more about our characteristic like we

  • are pessimistic yeah is the glass half full or half empty

  • half empty, yeah I agree with that yeah we are and that's why you see so many of us trying to

  • like be optimistic it's like changing your DNA, coz it's easier to be a pessimist

  • than it is .... it's harder to be an optimist yeah it is unless you are just programmed a

  • different way and I think its the weather I think we lived in a sunny weather. "and i'll tell ya what it is, if it was sunny we'd all be happy"

  • If it was sunny we'd be happy, there'd be no argument. Think how happy we are when we go on holiday Brits abroad go mental we love

  • going on a holidays somewhere hot, so much booze. yeah, onto the next one. so 14% of Brits agree that we are too rude

  • we've done another video on this about are Brits rude, we'll link it

  • in the cards above and the description it's a difficult one. I disagree. I think we're extremely polite. and then rude

  • privately yeah passive-aggressive yeah we're nice to

  • your face just not behind your back 11% of Brits agree that we are too

  • nationalistic so that's not actually much, 11% is not a lot. And I disagree as well

  • I'm part of the, what is that...99 percent eighty eight percent yeah must be 88%, no eighty nine percent

  • oh that's it maths everyone! 89% I'm with the 89% that think that's wrong. again like we just

  • said earlier in the video like we're not brought up to be that patriotic in

  • schools like in America you have to apparently like in classrooms stand up

  • and sing the national anthem with your hand on your heart like I couldn't tell

  • you what the national anthem I don't even know the lyrics

  • I think it's God say God Save the Queen but I have no idea how it goes we don't

  • know... that's another video Brits attempt the

  • national anthem after never hearing it but again on our video with a British

  • citizenship test that we did terribly at people were like I can't believe you don't

  • know your own country and it's like we're not taught really these things

  • no we're not. people are just subtly like "Britain's great, okay that's all you need to know"

  • yeah we don't have a class in school that's "Britain" no the last one is 8% of

  • people agree that Brits have bad teeth which again 92 percent disagree we would

  • disagree have you seen our teeth? neither of us have had braces

  • Brits do have good teeth and I don't know where that stereotype comes from

  • yeah that one can be ruled out they're probably just looking for another one to

  • finish off the quiz yeah hope you enjoyed that I think Brits there are

  • many negative qualities to Brits that we don't tend to talk about oh yeah so there's a few of them for you! There you go. If you

  • did enjoy the video guys please leave us a comment below and leave us a thumbs up

  • love a bit of thumbs up! yeah we've also just started a KoFi page so if you'd

  • like to buy us a coffee just as a you know a little tip to keep us going

  • through the edits of these videos then we'll link that below, to keep our teeth black buy us a coffee. thank you so much again and we'll see

  • you next time bye
