Things I'm Looking Forward To Doing Now That I'm British: Number Six

(Carrying on now that I'm almost settled back into a normal routine...)

6. Using “doing nothing in a pointed manner” as a legitimate form of protest. This may be indistinguishable from apathy on the outside, but inside, oh, it is not.

For instance, you are in a restaurant. The service is terrible. The food is inedible. You do not send it back. You make no remark upon the subject to the manager or to your companions. You pay your bill and you walk out. And you spend the rest of the evening simultaneously seething and feeling superior because you have been unspeakably, killingly, immovably polite.
