Typiskt svenskt?

Visst är det så vi är ibland, vi svenskar (kommer från listan "You Know you've been in Sweden too long, when ...):

When a stranger on the street smiles at you, you assume:
a: he is drunk
b: he is insane
c: he's an American

You hear loud-talking passengers on the train. You immediately assume:
a: they are drunk
b: they are Finnish
c: they are American
d: all of the above

The reason you take the ferry to Finland is:
a: duty free vodka
b: duty free beer
c: to party need to get off the boat in Helsinki, just turn around and do it again on the way back to Sweden.

You get extremely annoyed when the bus is two minutes late.

You accept you must walk 2 kilometres to collect your book/tape from the Post Office, because they don't deliver small packages (or large ones)

Christmas is more intimately tied to "Kalle Anka" than to Santa Claus

You just have to watch "Grevinnan och betjänten" on New Years Eve.

It's normal for a post office to be located inside the local ICA store, where no one can help you.

Listan har ytterligare ca 385 punkter och är skriven av en "aussie" i Sverige. Rolig läsning!
