Hah my offer was accepted :D I am on step two to owning my own flat! Step three: borrow a small fortune to fund it. Mortgage anyone?
Screw you, old people who viewed the flat directly after me >( I'mma put in an offer tomorrow. What now [old]bros?
Background to this complaint: I am second-generation Irish, born in the UK, lived and worked in Ireland in the early 2000s to early 10s, but back in the UK now (complete with southern England accent, much to my distaste). I've worked retail in these two countries, but never in my life have I met anyone as rude as the British. Examples:

me [when I worked in an appliance store]: "Hi there! How are you guys--?"
customer, without waiting for me to finish: "WASHING MACHINES."

me [at the petrol station I work at now]: "Good morning--"
customer, again without waiting for me to finish: "3."

I never got this in Ireland. It must be a British thing, to announce what you want without so much as a greeting. It's incredibly rude and jarring, and I hate it. Examples of when I worked in Ireland:

me: "Hi! How are you today?"
customer: "Alright bai, what's the story? Anything strange?"
[proceed to have ten minute conversation about there being too many taxis in Cork city]

tl;dr: British people are fucking rude, and don't like being called out on it. At least the French admit (and openly embrace) their rudeness.
Getting excited now - going to view a flat in an hour! :D
Isolated and electrify occur in the same universe at the same (roughly) time. If Megumi, Sam and Saranye met...
1 deviant said they would be friends
No deviants said Saranye would kick her ass
No deviants said they wouldn't even say hello to each other
