With a title like that, where do I begin? I could be here for days listing them all out. Of course please remember I say these things in jest – I love my Turkish people…. sometimes!

Here’s some problems we as Turkish people have

Not knowing when to say “I’m full”.

Not being allowed to say “I’m full”.

Never being able to use the misafir oda because it’s saved for special misafir.

You have to start shaving at 12 years old – both male and female

Turkish Shaving

Every meal is served with a load of bread. #MoreCorek


A complement is being told you have put on weight

Explaining Facebook to your nene and Dede is like teaching a baby to talk

Your Muslim but your allowed to drink alcohol

The better the meal, the more your clothes smell of it after

Never understanding how burning olive leaves keeps evil away.

Never knowing whether an elder member of the family is old enough to kiss their hand at bayram.

Not knowing what the going rate is for cash at Bayram


Talking about tomorrow nights dinner while eating breakfast.

Classed at English by Turkish locals, and Turkish by English locals.

Adverts that last longer than the actual TV show
