“He gave his son to jump on the sofa in Ikea, although he did not plan to buy anything.”

“Have you ever come across minor offenses in London?” Click to tell us your story. ”

Within a few hours, the NY Times received four thousand replies — and that’s just on Twitter. Almost no one responded to the question of the American edition seriously. Instead, social networks beat stereotypes about the British.
