You know you're African when ... Or your kids call everyone "auntie" and "uncle" even if they've never met them before.

Applies mainly to South Africans - and it's so, so true! I had so many "tannies / aunties" and "ooms / uncles" growing up . A form of politeness for adults that the rest of the world has pretty much lost / left behind.


Normally i wouldnt post this because I hate it when someone says "African" instead of "South African". But this is totally true!
