You Know You're A Real Londoner When...

No matter what anyone says, you don’t have to hail from Londinium to be a real Londoner. Once you’ve lived, worked and had a broken heart in this city, the ways of the capital naturally sink into the depths of your miserable old cynical soul. Cynicism + misery = true Londoner, right?

You’ve mastered the art of giving maximum shade…

via GIPHY

Which means you never smile (and are suspicious of those that do)…

via GIPHY

You think it’s perfectly acceptable to work 13 hour days…

via GIPHY

The thought of ever leaving London makes you want to throw up…

via GIPHY

You never, under any circumstances, have any money to your godforsaken name…

via GIPHY

You feel like walking through Covent Garden is like walking through the depths of Mordor…

via GIPHY

You get savage tube rage for absolutely no reason…

via GIPHY

Your fridge is empty because you can’t actually afford food anymore …

via GIPHY

You walk around like you own the place…

via GIPHY

This is you on rent day…

via GIPHY

You start dressing like this…

You constantly tell yourself you love your job despite the godawful pay…

via GIPHY

You stop caring about the price of alcohol – £6.75 is normal for a crap Malbec right?

via GIPHY

You would never dream of going shopping on Oxford Street…

via GIPHY

You feel like you should see a psychiatrist for all your #firstworldproblems…

via GIPHY

You have an inexplicable hatred for cyclists…

via GIPHY

You secretly think you’re cooler than those fake ‘Zone 7, 8, 9’ Londoners…

via GIPHY

When that glorious view from Waterloo Bridge makes you stop, grin and realise that all the above is totally worth it…

Never 👏🏽 gets 👏🏽 old #viewspam
