Hi:


Orderly queuing -- as seen during the recent Northern Rock banking crisis -- is seen as a quintessentially British convention. One social anthropologist believes Britons are even capable of forming one-person queues at bus stops.


有序排队是英国典型的社会礼仪,即便在不久前诺森罗克银行发生挤兑危机期间,人们仍坚持自觉排队。一位社会人类学家认为,英国人在车站等车时也能自觉地排成一个纵队。


最后是一个笑话:
英国人太遵守社会礼仪了,就连当只有自己一个人的时候也能排得成队。
