Omg!! I love these things! they always make me laugh even if i've heard them soo many times. I have a few which i got on a chain mail, and i bold the ones which relate to me or my family the most.

You go to drop off one person to the airport, but you take 50 extra people with you
Your entire family runs the marathon when they see a dog (calmly walking on the other side of the road)

'Paracetamol' is your cure to every illness

Your remote control is still in its plastic packet

You achieve A*'s in every subject and your parents tell you to STUDY HARDER

Universities let you in for Medicine just by looking at you

There is a tub of 'PRIDE GHEE' and a sack of 'TILDA BASTMATI' in your hallway

You have to offer guests tea even before they've stepped into your house

You know how an Indian film will end even before it's started (but you still watch it)

At school, your parents were never aware of Parents' Evening (...and if they did attend Parents' Evening and you got a bad report, you told them that the teachers were all racist)

You arrive late at every party

. You are constantly being compared to every other Bangladeshi kid on the Planet

You pronounce English words in a typical accent when speaking to your parents e.g. toilet: 'Toylet'


LOL I love these things, I can never get sick of them

I only post in FC because 99% of the threads in the only-cricket sections are repetitive whine-fests. Besides, I'm just a seasonal BD cricket fan... I only care about cricket when our players do (and they haven't really cared a whole lot about it lately). Also, the threads about Alok Kapali give me headaches.






Oh, and I also don't know anything about cricket.

Ususally I can say whether a people is from India or Pak or BD or SL just from their name. Believe me, most of the times (90%), I am correct.

For example, BD people would write Kamal Uddin. Indian people will write as Kemaludin OR, Kemaludeen.

Suffix like ul, ur are very common with BD people's first name.

Also from the look, I can differentiate IND-BD-PAK_SL people. It's easy actually.

No. Don't you notice that the sliding door for the cabinet is still open?

Looks like the guy just washed all those crockeries and is now drying his hand with the lungi.

No he isn't . He is from South India , probably from Tamil Nadu Or Kerela .If you take a closer look at his lungi you will see it isn't stitched . South Indians don't stitch their lungis (probably for extra ventilation) .They also have a darker complexion than most Bangladeshis.

For once in my life I'm confused!!
