This is a link to a flash presentation explaining the difference between how things are done in Italy and the rest of Europe. It's funny .. so for the Italians here please don't take it personally or feel offended .. the presentation was meant to be funny and was actually made by an Italian guy .. Enjoy ;)

:D Pretty funny...

I liked it and some of it is true, but all europeans do most of that stuff.

The danes also applaud the pilot after a landing :wallbang: Wassup with that anyways? Do we cheer for the bus-driver too? No... we are just weird.

I think I still hear my bf LOL about this one :howler: It's really funny, although not everything is quite true :d

BTW, we applaud the pilot as well here in Slovenia after the safe landing :angel: :D We had to applaud the bus-driver in junior high school whenever we went to a school trip :D

you are nutters people :LOL:
we never do something like that, but i guess we have many other customs that might seem weird to the others
maybe you could give more examples of what reactions you have to different things :)
i would be really interested :)

Good video. Like someone said though, a lot of (non-Italian) Europeans are going to see themselves in the 'Italians' in the video.

I've never heard of anyone applauding a pilot, or oven a bus-driver, though in Ireland at any rate we thank the bus-driver when we get off.

We don't even thank them. It's their job, isn't it? They get paid, why thank them?

Plus, most bus drivers over here are like NYC taxi drivers. Rude like hell!

i have many italian friends and all we do is applaud everything we see

for example if someone in class says a correct answer....we applaud him.
or if the teacher comes into class late...we applaud him.

its funny, everyone laughs....the girls love it!
