We're all a little Fawlty: Brits angriest in Europe
A new survey - inspired by stressed-out hotel manager Basil Fawlty, played by John Cleese in the sitcom Fawlty Towers - has found that Britons get angry more often than anyone else in Europe, flying into a rage an average of four times a day.
Almost half of Britons said queue jumpers made them lose it, with traffic jams infuriating 43 per cent. Rude service in shops, foreign call centres and having to deal with ill-mannered neighbours also got more than a third of Britons hot under the collar. Britons were also enraged by racist and bigoted behaviour and erratic driving.
Despite their more passionate reputation, Italians only get angry three and a half times a day and the French three times. Those living in apparently tranquil Sweden, Norway and Denmark said they got irate just once every five days.
Last year a study by the Mental Health Foundation found that one in four Britons is battling an anger problem.
How many times a day do you 'fly into a rage'?
