You have a package packages? You always sit "on track"? Etched jokes and say long toasts? Congratulations! You — our people.
It is only our girls can spend hours dressing up to go to the store for bread, but our men are stingy with the smiles for strangers, but as friendly acquaintances, it is our people always come to visit with gifts, even if it's just a cake, a packet of coffee. Let's see what else is characterized by our people — if you nodded after reading each signature, so you are our.
1. To dress up before going to the store
We love to look good. Sweat pants with extended knees and stretched green t-shirt is not an option even for the average trip to the store. But a cute dress and heels — the perfect outfit for a walk. And that's fine.
2. Sit down for a minute before the trip
When the bags were Packed, we usually do pause to sit quietly a minute for the track. Many do not like this tradition, considering it a relic of the past, but the minute elementary gives respite in the confusion of fees.
3. To say really long and complicated toasts
Only the laziest Russian people say, a simple toast "to good health!" or something like that. Seriously. We are always ready to hear long speeches and wishes. Because we have something to say.
4. Tell jokes as often as possible
We can begin to tell the story and suddenly exclaim: "Oh, it's like that joke!" And be sure to remember it. We love to laugh.
5. To congratulate each other after a shower or sauna
Although the rules need to wish each other a light steam to the bath, we say "With light steam!" only after a bath or shower.
6. To answer honestly and in detail to the question, "How are you?"
"How are you?" Foreigners to this duty question duty accepted answer "fine, thanks!" We are all wrong. If our man asked how he was doing, then you need to answer truly and fully. No one tells you about his life for six months, but to give a sane answer on the current situation — why not?
7. Not to smile to strangers
We don't smile at people with whom they just happened to meet eyes. At least not all 32. Smiles we have sincere — for friends, family and loved ones.
8. To celebrate the New year in a big way than Christmas
Tree for the New year. Gifts for the New year. The new year is the main winter holiday. Christmas is celebrated are much fewer people and much more modest.
9. Constantly review and quote old Soviet cartoons
We often and with great pleasure, sing songs and recite phrases from Soviet cartoons, keeping the tone and voice of the characters, not at all embarrassed strangers. Has anyone tried to cite foreign cartoons? But laughter woody woodpecker and songs about Chip and Dale at all nothing comes to mind. But in our good old movies and cartoons so much sense that the rest of your life to rethink.
10. Calling all women "girl"
If we want to call the waitress, we scream, "Girl!" If you're talking to 40-year-old woman, we call her "girl". Any woman will turn the language to call a girl for us — a girl. And everyone is happy.
11. To sit at the table for dinner and sit for hours until midnight or longer, constantly talking
When we assembled for dinner, we sit down at the table having dinner and talking. Then we just talk, then eat and talk, then drink tea and talk, and even leaving home, we, standing on the threshold, some time talking. We love to chat and eat. Especially salads with mayonnaise.
12. Never throw away the packages
Seriously, probably every house has a package of packages. And because they are used...
13. Never to go visiting without a gift
It can be a cake or wine for dinner, chocolates or flowers (provided that their odd number). In fact, no matter what, the main thing — anything. Because the "well is not coming with empty hands."
