You refer to your dad's friends as 3amoo
You have an endless supply of pistachios, dates, and pumpkin seeds
You curse at your teachers or strangers in Arabic
You can spot an Arab a mile away and they have spotted at you because they keep staring
After a family meal, the women fight to the death over who should wash the dishes while the men sit on their behinds and discuss politics, waiting for their tea.
Your parents want you to become a doctor or engineer
You use your forehead and eyebrows to point something out
Your mother yells at the top of her lungs to call you to dinner even if you're in the next room
You have at least thirty cousins
You arrive one or two hours late to a party and think it's normal
You are standing next to the largest suitcases at the Airport.
You talk for an hour at the front door when leaving someone's house
You say bye 17 times on the phone
When your parents meet strangers and talk for a few minutes, you
discover they know one of your uncles back home
Your parents don't realize phone connections to foreign countries have improved in the last two decades, and still scream at the top of their lungs
when making long distance calls
Your mother does everything for you if you are male-this is the truest one of all....i have three older bros u see...
You do all the housework and cooking if you are female
Your relatives alone could populate a small city
You still came back home to live with your parents after you graduate
You teach Westerners swearwords in Arabic
Your parents drink more than 6 cups of tea a day
You've had a shoe thrown at you by your mother
You're proud to be an Arab - and you pass these jokes on to all your Arab friends!...[/font][/size][/b][/list][/b][/color][/quote]
Oh i have another....instead of sayin ''fold the clothes''-they all say ''tie up the clothes''....lol
That was so so so hilarious and ima forward that to all my rokkie friends rite now....
i just love all the above and am guilty of most of them!
my favorite is when I'm being served in a shop and the woman behind the counter is a bit stuck up, when they finish serving and say 'bye' i always reply with 'siri ta kheraay' say it quick enough, the 'kheraay' bit sounds like bye and they have no clue what you said but i can guarantee you roccan friends will fall about!!!!
Like 'seeri al bint souk'
