Traditions and Customs only Iranians will understand!

This one may not seem like a big deal, but it’s one that, for whatever reason, has always stood out to me. If you ask for a glass of water, Iranians will put the glass on a plate before giving it to you. A few times my American side has just handed them the glass, and immediately, I feel as though I’ve committed a massive faux pas. It’s something that I have to consciously remember to do. “Put the glass on a plate. Put the glass on a plate.”
