American Kids vs. Italian Kids
 
 
American kids:   Move out when they're 18 with the full support of their parents.
Italian kids:   Move out when they're 28, having saved enough money for a house, and are two weeks away from getting married...  unless there's room in the basement for the newlyweds.

American kids: When their Mom visits them, she brings a Bundt cake, and you sip coffee and chat.
Italian kids:  When their Mom visits them, she brings 3 days worth of food, begins to tidy up, dust, do the laundry, and rearrange the furniture.

American kids:   Their dads always call before they come over to visit them, and it's usually only on special occasions.
Italian kids:  Are not at all fazed when their dads show up, unannounced, on a Saturday morning at 8:00, and start pruning the fruit trees.   If there are no fruit trees, he'll plant some.

American kids: Always pay retail, and look in the Yellow Pages when they need to have something done.
Italian kids: Call their dad or uncle, and ask for another dad's or uncle's phone number, to get it done.

American kids: Will come over for cake and coffee, and get only cake and coffee.  Nothing more.
Italian kids:  Will come over for cake and coffee, and get antipasto, wine,  a pasta dish, a choice of two meats, salad, bread, a cannoli, fruit, espresso, and a few after dinner drinks.

American kids:  Will greet you with 'Hello' or 'Hi'.
Italian kids: Will give you a big hug, a kiss on your cheek, and a pat on your back.

American kids:  Have never seen you cry.
Italian kids: Cry with you.
 
American kids: Eat peanut butter and jelly sandwiches on soft mushy white bread.
Italian kids: Eat Genoa Salami and Provolone sandwiches on crusty Italian bread (for breakfast).
 
American kids:   Think that being Italian is cool.
Italian kids:  Know that being Italian is cool.
 
American kids:    Will ignore this.
Italian kids:  Will forward it.
Believe in Yourself
Because the rest of us think you're an idiot.
