Greek conversations

1 Jun

Neo-Greeks have this, I guess you can call it a neurotic tick: every time you open your mouth to make a fucking point, they interrupt and finish the thought for you. Or worse, they interrupt you and completely change the topic.

It makes being in a parea extremely frustrating and, ultimately, boring. People who know my talkative, English-speaking self are surprised to see how socially quiet I am in Greek. Ultimately it’s beneath me to have to fight to make a point or to try and change the manners of a rude, blah blah blah culture. ‘Cause they’re not listening to you anyway; they’re thinking of their own next sentence.
