You Know You Live In London When…

18 April, 2014
At Instant Impact, the graduate recruitment agency, many of the internships and roles we place are in London. If you live in the capital, or have moved recently after graduation, we wonder if you can tick all these boxes and can call this great city home?


You Know You've Become A Londoner When...

1. You completely lose your temper if you just missed a tube. Even though the next one will be along in approximately 2 minutes.

2. You have to genuinely make an effort to refrain from screaming at the tourists that are blocking your path.

3. It’s no longer a surprise when 12 out of 13 tube lines are ‘part closed’.

4. You’re no longer phased handing over £8 for a gin and tonic.

5. You almost faint because a stranger has initiated polite, friendly conversation.

6. You opt to stay inside and hide forever during school holidays to avoid the mass congregations of screaming children.

7. You happily slag off The Shard or The Gherkin but get unreasonably defensive if you hear a tourist do the same.

8. Walking across a bridge on the Thames and looking at the views makes you embarrassingly emotional and lucky that you get to live in such a great city.
