This is for all my "Italian friends" out there. I think this is pretty accurate for the most part.

FRIENDS: Never ask for food
ITALIAN FRIENDS: Are the reason you have no food.

FRIENDS: Call your parents Mr. and Mrs.
ITALIAN FRIENDS: Call your parents mom and dad.

FRIENDS: Bail you out of jail and tell you what you did was wrong.
ITALIAN FRIENDS: Would be sitting next to you saying, Damn...we messed
up...but that was fun!"

FRIENDS: Have never seen you cry.
ITALIAN FRIENDS: Cry with you.

FRIENDS: Borrow your stuff for a few days then give it back.
ITALIAN FRIENDS: Keep your stuff so long they forget it's yours.

FRIENDS: know a few things about you.
ITALIAN FRIENDS: Could write a book with direct quotes from you.

FRIENDS: Will leave you behind if that's what the crowd is doing.
ITALIAN FRIENDS: Will kick the whole crowds ass that left you.

FRIENDS: Would knock on your door.
ITALIAN FRIENDS: Walk right in and say, "I'm here!"

FRIENDS: Are for a while.
ITALIAN FRIENDS: Are for life.

FRIENDS: Will take your drink away when they think you've had enough.
ITALIAN FRIENDS: Will look at you stumbling all over the place and say,
"YO, you better drink the rest of that, you know we don't waste!!"

FRIENDS: Will talk dirt to the person who talks dirt about you.
ITALIAN FRIENDS: Will knock 'em out!!

FRIENDS: Will ignore this.
ITALIAN FRIENDS: Will forward this

Viva Italia!
