A British moment

So, I was in the drugstore today, and there was this little kid, maybe 5 or 6, who was bugging his mother to buy him something, on account of a sign that said "buy two get one free." The mother said to the kid, "that's just a ploy to get you to buy two things that you don't need." And the kid responded, "Oh, I'm sorry. I didn't realize." I think I can say with some assurance that an American child would never respond with those words.

In other news, a bus driver, whose accent was completely incomprehensible, openly mocked me for not knowing the correct fare, and then forced me to pay 60p too much.
