Do you feel that it never rains but it pours? Well, this week's storms should give you a boost, according to an American author who claims British people relish being miserable.
Former New York Times journalist Eric Weiner claims Brits are never happier than when at their most miserable. His book, The Geography of Bliss, has received rave reviews and is riding high in the bestseller charts across the Atlantic.
Mr Weiner said Brits believed happiness was something for Americans and said they could only enjoy themselves when they had something to complain about.
