Stone handaxe
THIS small handaxe is one of the most beautiful in the British Museum. It is made from quartz with attractive amethyst banding, a difficult material from which to make tools because it is extremely hard. The toolmaker would have had to hit with considerable force and accuracy to remove flakes. Such a high degree of difficulty makes the thin, symmetrical shape of this piece a masterpiece of the toolmakers’ art.

Complaining
 (голосов: 1)
In order to be British, or at any rate to pass unnoticed in British society, the visitor must learn not to make a fuss. A fuss is something that the true Brit cannot stand. It is nearly as bad as a scene, and in the same category as drawing attention to yourself.

A clear example of fuss is complaining about poor service, for example in a hotel, shop or restaurant. The true Brit does not do this. "Just think for a moment," says the Brit, "would you like to do their job?" If the receptionist ignores you, or the hairdresser blows smoke in your face, if the soup is cold or the taxi driver overcharges — say nothing. Who knows what disappointments, what secret sadness their lives might contain. You may purse your lips or grit your teeth; you may raise one eyebrow quizzically, but don't complain. You can always write to the local newspaper when you get home!


Complaining



Expressions to learn
Keep your voice down, they'll hear you! I'm sure they're doing their best, dear.

Avoid saying
I demand to see the manager!
