From liking Marmite to saying sorry when it’s not your fault: The ultimate ‘awfully British offences’

People flocked to Twitter this morning to share hilarious the혻everyday crimes and problems혻unique to our country

US Brits혻are certainly guilty of many quirky traits – our apparent love of queues, apologising profusely (and often unnecessarily) and dunking biscuits to the point of no return being but a few.

This morning the hastag ‘Awfully British Offences’ swept social media, with people tweeting hilarious혻everyday habits혻that are rife in this country.

From saying sorry when it’s not your fault to loving Marmite, here are our favourite혻ultimate #AwfullyBritishOffences.

One Twitter user pointed out we often say “I think that’s right” when paying혻with the exact change – even though we혻counted it three times and know full well it is.

Another tweeted: “Keeping a stiff upper lip when all you really want to do is cry #AwfullyBritishOffences“.

One Twitter user wrote: “#AwfullyBritishOffences falling over and jumping up saying I’m alright even when your clearly not.”

Another tweeted: “When someone greets you like a long lost friend and you try to cover up the fact you have no clue who they are #AwfullyBritishOffences“.

Naturally the great 'milk in tea first or after' debate raged, while one person tweeted about the cardinal sin: "Putting the wrong amount of milk in someone elses tea혻#AwfullyBritishOffences".

On the topic of tea, one Twitter user wrote: "#AwfullyBritishOffences혻DUNKING JAFFA CAKES. THEY ARE CAKES."

Others pointed out our never-ending optimism when it comes to our national football team.

Another flagged our petty side, writing: "#AwfullyBritishOffences Rolling your eyes at the person in front of you with more than 6 items at the checkout instead of saying wrong queue".

One simply pointed out: "#AwfullyBritishOffences Marmite".

Nuff said.
