Summer is finally over, and there is a small section of the population who are cheering! Because you see, despite the myth that summer is the perfect season for fun and excitement, not everyone feels that way. For some of us, it means hayflower, frizzy hair and head to toe sunburn. If you’re just not a ‘summer person’, here are 19 things you’ll definitely understand that ‘normal’ people won’t.
First of all, you feel guilty if you don’t spend time outside because “it’s nice out”, even though you REALLY don’t want to.
And when you do go outdoors your confronted with a range of horrors, like midges.
Get away from me you stripey gits!
Then along comes the hayfever.
And the sunburn.
There are even more gross sweaty people on public transport than usual.
And they’re usually half naked.
And everywhere you go means dealing with strangers grim toenails staring back at you from a pair of hideous sandals.
Why God?! Why?!
Or perhaps even worse, socks and sandals.
It’s the British way.
All of a sudden everybody wants picnics in the park. But picnics equal ants and other creepy crawlies after your food.
And If you aren’t been dragged along to picnics it’s BBQs.
Where you’ll likely get food poisoning from a poorly cooked hotdog.
That’s if the whole thing doesn’t end after ten minutes because it starts pouring down with rain.
Because British weather is incredibly unpredictable.
Whether you love or hate kids, they’re suddenly everywhere and it’s a bit much.
Bloody summer holidays!
You long for September 1st.
When becomes acceptable to once again stay indoors binge-watching Netflix and eating pizza.
You can’t wait for the leaves to start falling.
Because it means it’s getting closer to Halloween.
And Bonfire Night.
And all the other non-summer stuff you love.
Hot chocolate anyone?
