@zippylef: But not just wait – in a polite and orderly fashion. No pushing in/skipping the queue or everyone will frown and tut and tell you to get out.

If you can try to find another country, than do so. Lol! UK can be a great experience for a little while. If you can’t find anything anywhere else, THEN go.

@peacheslea: What? Of course hedgehogs are native here! You don’t get them in pet stores because they’re wild – everywhere! You mainly see them run over on roads.

@Mrs Hedgehog: After January, they are actually changing the quarantine law. It’s only going to be a month instead of 6.

@peacheslea: Hedgies are definitely not native to this country, 

not to start a debate but … i think you should tell that to the British Hedgehog Presevation Society, a registered UK Charity dedicated to helping & protecting hedgehogs native to the UK (Erinaceus europaeus).

@LGenz: That may be but Americans are notorious for trying to skip queues. Which may be why the above preconception about Americans being annoying was mentioned.

I should emphasise that when we go on about queues, we are openly mocking ourselves. It’s one of those things that we laugh at because it’s very English – drinking tea, talking about the weather and taking queues seriously.

@Mrs Hedgehog: I know what you mean. I had to leave my doggie behind with my parents and it seriously broke my heart (he was more of a family pet, but I was super attached to him). I always tell my husband that if I ever leave him, it will be for my dog!
I would check the rules out again though – since it’s been 2 years since I officially moved over. I knew a girl who was able to bring her guide dog over without the quarantine rules applying, but I’m not sure what hoops she had to jump through to get it 🙁

Annnnnd they don’t have chipmunks in the wild – only as pets! This whole country has got it around the wrong way 😉

@VickyAurea: Maybe its because I work in NYC but when you skip a line here several people yell “THERES A LINE, GET TO THE BACK” or “THERES A F*CKING LINE BUDDY”

@stokieGal: sorry all – my DH has told me he’s never heard of hedgehogs, so I just assumed this country didn’t have them. Shame you don’t keep them as pets – they are super sweet! I’ve never seen one in the wild before
