Something popped in my mind!

My father has a close friend who is English (Now moved to Austrailia), and whenever he used to come to meet us, I did not feel for a second that he was sophisticated - He just had that typical accent that is all. I even asked his son (3 years younger than me) and he also approved that Britian is not so sophistacated anymore - And says I shall not mix the British royalties with the average citizens.

@Exigean: If you really had that impression for Americans, why are you taking services from them?

Brits are generally in two circles. The "common citizens" who are mostly ignorant and then those who are forced to learn sophistication. I attended a Christian primary school and was forced to learn how to be a proper young lady, however those attending faithless schools are not disciplined into behaving correctly.

Also, beggars can't be choosers. A person may dislike America but they will still use it's products. People cannot afford to be petty.

1) I somewhat know they teach you how to behave! I have done my A Levels, and they had all these "Lectures" and "Conversation rounds", I used to get marks based on how polite and polished I was.

2) I agree to your last line.

Number 1 is complete baloney...

I've been part of a Catholic parish (is that worded right?) since I was born, went to a catholic primary school, high school and 6th form and not once has anyone tried to tell me how to be polite and polished.
