4. A Confusing Greeting
Around the world there are number of ways people greet on another. We are used to such greeting as ‘Hello’ and ‘Hi’. The Facts about England is that in the UK, more than one foreigner has been thrown off when a local greets them with the saying ‘You Alright?’ to a North American, when someone asks us that we immediately think we either look sick or have been acting improperly. In fact, in the UK ‘You Alright?’ is just their way of asking ‘How are you?’ – But it has no doubt led to some uncomfortable moments for tourists and visitors.
