You know you are from Athens when…

Το βρήκα στο facebook και επειδή μου άρεσε πάρα πολύ το αναδημοσιεύω εδώ…

You eat dinner after 10 p.m.

When the traffic light turns orange, instead of pressing the brakes, you speed through

It takes you three hours to drink a cup of coffee

You dress up to go for coffee, but you go clubbing with sandals

Pollution doesn’t bother you

You hate cab drivers and their inappropriate attempts at conversation (vulgar descriptions of fictitious female conquests top the list)

Your neighbourhood has a street called El. Venizelou

When driving, people mistake your thank-you gesture for a MOUNTZA

You forget what Telestet is now called

You complain that 25 degrees is too cold for summer

You argue with your friends about whether North is better than South

Pavements are seen as parking spaces

You can’t understand how cities in other countries function without periptera

Tourists amuse you

You’ve never seen the changing of the guard at Syntagma, and still cannot understand why people find it so amusing.

The islands are literally a «hop» away

You are tired of seeing women with 4x4s driving as if they own the road.

You consider Athens the only true city in Greece

Everyone came from somewhere else, even if they hide it

You consider the Interamerican tower a skyscraper

Strikes are national holidays

Rain and snow wreak havoc and put you in a bad mood

Recycling is still theoretical to you.

Your souvlakia come faster than an ambulance

You pay a whole month’s salary at the Bouzoukia in one night

You can easily find yourself in a traffic jam at 6 am on a Sunday morning

You get annoyed when you see one more person wearing Raybans and holding an empty Starbucks cup just to look «trendy»

You hate the word «trendy»

When you go to Kolonaki on a weekday, your friends from abroad ask: «don’t these people work?»

You use your car to go to the bakery which is down the street from your house (a 2 minute walk)

You clap for the pilot when your plane lands at El. Venizelos

You like getting in bitch fights with public servants

You go to the Police station because someone stole your phone, and they tell you to call 100.

You see a children’s indoor party center right next to strip clubs on syggrou

Despite all this, you wouldn’t dream of living anywhere else.
