You may arrive at r/CasualUK thinking you already know all about British people from movies and TV shows but as you will see from the pictures, not every stereotype holds true. To give you a crash course that will make it easier to browse the subreddit, we can take a look at what a British online newspaper called The Independent had to say on the subject. 

Brits do drink tea all the time. When the Sons of Liberty tipped 45 tons of tea into the sea during their Boston Tea Party, Britain was mortified. And not just because of the lost tax but because, well, but also because it was such a waste. They consume about 5 pounds of tea per person each year and most native Britons would hook themselves up to an IV drip of the stuff if they could.

Brits also form a queue whenever they get the chance to. If waiting in an orderly fashion was an Olympic sport, Great Britain would line up to take gold, silver, and bronze. Apparently, they queue politely at bus stops and airports, in shops, and even at bars. Maybe they're not standing in a perfect line at the bar, but they all know in which order they arrived, and who gets to order when.

However, Brits don't necessarily think of nine pints of lager as a quiet night. Yes, they like to have a beer but they're not always drunk. Even though many students are perfectly capable of consuming 14 units of alcohol on a night out, when it comes to pure alcohol consumption per capita, they're not even in the top ten.

Also, contrary to popular belief, Brits don't talk about the weather all the time. Since they are not the most socially confident people and have around 120 days of rainfall a year, there isn't much sense for them to indulge in chit-chat, like "Isn't it rainy?" "Yes, just like yesterday."

This brings us to a common phrase, saying that Brits are reserved. Which is true. In foreign parts, this tends to translate as "snooty" but in fact, they're just a bit shy, almost apologetic for their presence. In his Notes From a Small Island, Bill Bryson finds that many of their sentences begin “Sorry, but…” So in a city, only beggars, lunatics and tourists speak to other members of the public; in London, you'll be lucky to make eye contact.

But for someone who likes to keep for themselves, they sure as heck have a hilarious sense of humor. Which is obvious if you visit r/CasualUK!
