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.

South Africa is the only country with three official capitals: Pretoria, Cape Town, and Bloemfontein.
