British people have a way of reacting when it get hot in the UK [How I Met Your Mother]
This week it was announced the Britain may be set to enjoy an eight week heat wave with temperatures reaching 30 degrees.
And with that, everyone is planning their trips to the beach, when they’ll be having their first BBQs of the year and what to do over the May bank holiday.
While sun is all the UK has been dreaming about through the cold winter months, it seems that now it’s here, all we can do is complain.
Here’s the REAL way all British people react as soon as it gets hot:
This bank holiday weekend is set to be very hot [Giphy]
No one has any idea what to wear
For a nation that lives in jumpers, coats and scarves, as soon as the sun comes out, we’re completely baffled.
Is it hot enough for a playsuit? Will I be too hot in jeans?
Whatever choice you make, you know it’s going to be the wrong one.
Public transport becomes worse than normal when it’s hot in the UK [SG]
Public transport is literal hell
What’s worse than a hot sweaty person?
Hundreds of hot sweaty people trying to get on the bus or the tube to work.
Suddenly you’ve got some man’s armpit in your face while you mop your brow and wonder how you got here.
Everyone’s small talk is based around the weather [GIPHY]
We base all our small talk around the weather
Stuck for small talk? Why not try the weather?
And with temperatures like this, you’ll have loads to chat about.
We sit in the sun, and then complain when we burn

A lot of us Brits like to pretend we have beautiful olive skin, and that we can sit out in the sun for hours at a time and look radiant afterwards.
Does this ever happen? No.
There will always be someone who thinks they do not need sunscreen, and then the next time you see them they’re the shade of a ripe tomato.
There’s a strange collection of outfits in the streets

As soon as the slightest bit of sun comes out, the whole of the UK strip off to basically nothing.
Although, one outfit we’ll never get our heads around is the jeans and flip flops look.
If it’s so hot you need to wear flip flops, surely you shouldn’t be wearing jeans?
People think it’s ok to wear nothing in public places

The sun comes out and suddenly everyone strips off – in the strangest of places.
These days, it’s not a shock to see a man running around the tube in a pair of swim shorts and nothing else.
