"Must grin cheesily and point at all women" London Local Custom Tip by gussymons

London Local Customs: 718 reviews and 884 photos

  Joanne and Will at Marly's wedding
by gussymons

This ancient English custom is obeyed always. When speaking to women in dresses, one must grin and point at them with one hand.

Otherwise they will go and report you to the police for aggravated rudeness.

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
