    While the first case applies to all people, the other four concern foreigners coming to Italy.
    Can you relate to any of these? Do you know other ways? And how do you piss off people in your country? Tell us about it in the comments below, let's have a laughter together:)

    Follow us on the channel DOLCE VITA and learn not only the language but also the Italian culture, plus travel tips, etc.!

    "Today we're going to have fun discovering how to piss off Italians. I'm going to tell you about five ways....
    Just keep in mind that these are just five of the many ways to piss us off and at the end of this video I'm going to ask you two questions...
    Let's start! Number one: we get really upset when we're in traffic. You have no idea how Italians get angry in the traffic. It's crazy! You know, it seems like they go to war. So, if somebody is slowing down the traffic, best case scenario you just get somebody honking at you, but otherwise you get people rolling down the window, yelling at you "cornuto maledetto", or other stuff I'm not really gonna say here...What is "cornuto"? "Cornuto" is like...you're woman is cheating on you and, let me tell you, for Italians this is one of the worst insults ever! So, be careful. Number two is "mess with our food". Please, don't do that! Don't come here and mess with our food, because we take food so seriously, our culture is food based. So, don't come here and say "you know, all kinds of pasta are the same, it doesn't matter". It doesn't matter?! Are you kidding me?! It does matter so much! Fusilli are not the same as spaghetti, and spaghetti are not the same as conchiglie or rigatoni. They're all different, they all have different flavors and they all go with different sauces. So, please, don't say that, ok? And please, don't put ketchup on spaghetti! What the hell is that about?! Ketchup on spaghetti?! Are you kidding me?! No way, I think you might risk your life if you do that. Of course I'm kidding, but maybe not so much. And one other thing, if the package says "cook for 12 minutes, 14 minutes", do it for two minutes less. Why? Because we like our pasta al dente and if it's not al dente we call it "scotta", overcooked, and forget about it, there's no way you can it that, we're not gonna eat it and if you cook it for us that way, then we're not friends anymore, ok? So, number three: ok, you're a foreigner, you come visit me as a guest and I'll show you to the bathroom. You go in, you look at one thing that looks like something and you don't know quite what it is. So you're like, "what is that?". That's called bidet. Why do we have that? Well, I don't know why it's just in Italy but...we wash our "sedere", ok. We wash our sedere after doing, you know what, ok? And we don't want you to tell us "that thing is disgusting", because if you say that....What?! Disgusting?! Are you kidding me?! You're disgusting because you don't wash your...ok? So, don't say that. Number four: it has to do with coffee. Coffee is another thing we take really really seriously. So, our coffee is called espresso and this is espresso, very very short. If you ask for instant coffee, long coffee, what do you call it, "americano"? No, I'm sorry, I'm really sorry to say this to you but americano, long coffee, instant coffee, that's toilet flush, that's what we call it here. So, don't ever ask for that kind of coffee, just drink your espresso and enjoy it. And also, remember, don't ever ask for cappuccino at dinner. If you ask for it in the afternoon, Iike, I don't know, 3-4 o'clock in the afternoon, it might be ok. But if you ask it for dinner, after dinner, forget about it, you know, you really don't wanna do that, ok? And finally number five: walking barefoot in the house. No, you don't do that. If you come to my place and take your shoes off, you know what I'm gonna tell you? "What the hell are you doing? Why are you taking your shoes off?". We don't do that, we don't walk barefoot in the house, we walk with our shoes on and we like it that way. So, please, don't come to our houses and do that, ok?
