this makes me laugh a lot, it’s totally false, I’ve lived in london for 15 years and I’ve never heard of this happening, they’ll give you what you order.

@hollyberry4:  It’s true.   And, in Rand McNally, they wear hats on their feet, and hamburgers eat people.

False.

 

If a woman orders a beer she gets a white wine instead.

Some people consider ladies drinking a pint isn’t lady like and quite off putting. But that’s what some like so do. If you order one you’ll get one.

@hollyberry4:  Also funny that he thinks spending time in Ireland makes someone knowledgable about London.

@jenangeles:  And England is the word for all of Scotland and Britain and Ireland, right?

@Duncan:  Of course Wales is just really another big county, like Yorkshire.

@chronicwhimsy:  No that is an endangered species.  And Yorkshire is a tea company, not a place.  Duh.

Wales is a country just like Scotland and England. It has its own flag, anthem, and language. It is not a county like Yorkshire, which is a part of England. England + Scotland + Wales +Northern Ireland = Great Britan. Add in Australia, New Zealand, Canada, and The Falklands (and I think a few more countries) = The British Commonwealth. Eire aka the Republic of Ireland is not part of Britain.

FWIW I’ve been to many a pub with my British husband and never been served a half pint unless I specifically ordered a half pint.

@fishbone:  Actually, England, Wales, and Scotland comprise Great Britain, which is part of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. Prior to 1805 they were the Kingdom of Great Britain.

Anyway, I think you are missing the point of these posts.
