According to Mr T’s colleagues he drinks coffee like an Italian; this isn’t a compliment.

According to the shoe mender I speak Greek like an Australian; I’m not entirely sure that’s a compliment either.

We are mocked because we eat English dinner at 8.00pm when any self-respecting Greek might just be finishing his afternoon espresso.
