You'd surprised, Monday gym for the 13yr old is always a run, rain or shine. Sometimes a long run, other times efforts up hill, usual 10 times, with 2km warm up and cool down, he's a bit of a star their gym teacher!

What you call rude is called normal here. The Swedes are not rude unless you compare them to other nationalities, which is a redundant thing to do.

Swedes consider we Brits to be overly polite to the point of being unclear when we speak.

We Brits consider Americans to be loud and obnoxious and they consider us to have a stick up our arse.

In short, compare a Swede with another Swede. If you find they are all [a thing] then consider it is you that is in the wrong.

When I moved here Stockholm had hydrogen powered buses. Birmingham still had horse and cart. :-)

should be focusing on technique sports and see if theres any talent there.

Before covid they had an after school sports club. They do about 15 different sports throughout the year, usually 3 weeks of the same sport. But it's run and coached by folk from the respective local sports club, the experts if you like in that field. They get info on joining the clubs if something caught their interest.

I am a Brit as well and perhaps on the overly polite side. I do however find meeting a person on a long walk, saying hello and not having them respond, a little creepy with the remoteness. I wear running shoes so if I had to I could perhaps put a bit of distance between me them. I don't know if that is rude or not. It does feel weird and without embellishment, what happens most of the time here. I can't bring myself to act like the other "Romans" here. If so, there would be little issue.

Even if Martin was given a free full glass, he'd probably drill a hold in the bottom himself so he has something to moan about.
