5 Signs You’re Actually Turkish 

1. Guests in, ikram out

*ding dong* Put on the tea! Grab some biscuits! Where’s the fruit? We need ikram, STAT!

Oh heeeey dear neighbor, do come in!

2. Jay-walking is the only walking you do

I’m pretty sure that red hand sign ten meters down the road means play leap frog across the street right here.  Just saying.

3. Turkish sayings applied to English conversations

When you are texting with your American friend and she makes some kind of big declaration and you’re like, “hadi bakalim“.

4. You reach for Turkish brands

Because who needs Lipton loose leaf tea when Berk is tap taze?

5. The grape-vine is where you get ALL your intel

ikram: snacks and tea or coffee given to guests (also has other meanings)

hadi bakalim: Let’s see/ let’s do it

tap taze: very fresh
