Us Brits are often known for our love of tea, cake and queuing.
But with dealing with confrontation not one of our finest attributes, some people usually try to avoid making a scene.
Many of us approach pressing matters in the politest ways we possibly can.
Sometimes confrontation is unavoidable so one way to avoid a bust up but to still get your point across is leaving a sign.
Signs are a good way to inform people of an issue without actually having to face anyone directly.
So in honour of great British passive aggressiveness, we've rounded up the best signs out there…
In a flap
In this first sign, a concerned bird enthusiast made a homemade sign out of white A4 paper and large amounts of masking tape.
To add to the British-ness, the piece of A4 paper was attached to a red post box labelled: "Bird Nesting”
The note added: “Please do not use until further notice.”
Don't badger us
This was not the only Brit who took animal related issues into their own hands in a somewhat polite way.
Remaining on the theme of wildlife, this next person became rather concerned with the comfort of local badgers.
Usually, the nocturnal animals are known for being a bit feisty.
However, a local resident worried about kids toys disturbing the creatures.
The sign was written in pencil and attached to a post and instructed: “No toy Land Rovers – they scare the badgers.”
They remained polite by ending the demand with a “thank you.”
Don't be a grass
Knowing that parking spaces can sometimes be sparse, whoever put up this sign attempted to be assertive.
But they came off more polite than p*ssed off.
Wedged onto a piece of grass, the sign read: “Please try not to park on the grass.”
Food for thought
I came across a very British sign myself back in August 2018.
I happened to stumble across a McDonald’s that was experiencing a delay in delivery, which left the store without many of its ingredients.
Although the handwritten note was littered with spelling errors, the very British sentiment of politeness was still there.
Informing their customers of some shortages the sign read: “Unfortunely we have no beef, chicken, veg or fries!
“Sorry for any inconience.”
In any situation whether having to deal with fearful badgers or birds making a home of a post box, Britain still attempts to remain as polite as possible.
I guess as a nation we are riddled with tea, politeness and inconvenience.
