This question immediately conjures up memories in my mind; modern memories and childhood ones.
This is a question that all people native of the British Isles will know. It is often followed by a second equally important question: salt and vinegar? Can you guess when we ask these?
In the British Isles, there is a very traditional fast food called fish and chips, sometimes referred to as a fish supper. It is one of the most popular things you can order in a chip shop. Chip shops often offer a few different types of fish, including cod and whiting. Chip shop staff always ask if you would like salt and vinegar on your chips.
This is an example of a question that every person in the British Isles knows, but that you probably won’t find in textbooks. Knowing this question may help you if you plan to visit the UK or Ireland, and if you want to experience some of the traditional food there.
Have you heard of any questions that British and Irish people ask but aren’t found in textbooks?
