How to mess wit de half chinee guyanese down de street...OR,
The Definitive Crossing-over Test for the NRG (Non-Resident Guyanese)
How many of these points apply to you, a NRG?(Thanks Spammin' Auntie)
Yuh start "chatting" instead of "gaffing", an yuh "hangin' out" instead of limin'". Yuh feelin' embarrassed to "crash" a party. Yuh eatin' roti with knife and fork. Yuh start mekkin road signals when yuh drivin'. Yuh cyan tek even slight pepper in yuh food. Yuh stop tinkling de ice in yuh drink before yuh drink it. Yuh have problems "sucking yuh teeth" when someone annoys you. Yuh stop eatin' sugar cake, fudge, and tambran balls, because dey have "too many calories". (Oh my!) Yuh worried dat the red stuff in "red mango" not good fuh ya. Yuh not usin' expressions like: "Aunty Man", and "Don' tek yuh eyes an pass me". Yuh fin' dat de wedda "too hot for me". Yuh 'fraid to "laugh out loud", because people might "look at yuh funny". Yuh drinkin' coconut water from a straw (Oh Lord! No, Not dat!). U start sayin "excuse me" instead of "move u raas" "Basin" becomes "container". "It's over there", replaces "look e dey dey". "Curass fish" now pronounced as "curbamsie". U don't buy "bangamary", only "cod". U stop laffin at people wid big foot and old men wid goady. (Me caan spel dat wan). U usin blender instead o grater. U does ring doorbell instead o standin on d road shoutin fu "inside"
If you identify with more than four of the above statements, then, you have officially "crossed over". You might as well just bun de Guyana passport.
