"Are you an Arab?" Personal Page by Manyana
You know that you are an Arab when...
Your refer to your dad's friends as "3amm"....(p.s.numbers implied in words replace Arabic letters that are not in English)
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.
so i run away from Arabs and they still spot me out
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
this is me, lol
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
very typical and I always say, 'i'm here':^D
You have at least thirty cousins
I never counted. It's just very true
You arrive one or two hours late to a party and think it's normal
always tell me one hour earlier so I can make it on time,lol
You are standing next to the largest suitcases at the Airport.
TRUE and I hate it
You talk for an hour at the front door when leaving someone's house.
i know my western friends hate me
You say bye 17 times on the phone
sometimes I do here in London, can't help it!!I just found my self being hunged up on me,lol
Your parents don't realise 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.
oh yeah, they live it to the fullest, including the spitting part,lol
Your relatives alone could populate a small city.
You teach Westerners swearwords in your Arabic
Or we translate all the Arabic swearwords into literal English, that's even worse,lol
You always say "open the light" instead of "turn the light on"
it doesn't make any sense to turn something on as much as to open it. think about it
Your parents drink 6 cups of tea a day.
Yes, before breakfast and after breakfast, before lunch and after lunch, and so dinner
You're proud to be an Arab - and you pass these jokes on to all your Arab friends:^D
