People, take it easy okay? 😄
One of the numerous hilarious things I acquired during my Portugal trip was the uber use of the word ”Okay”. As simple as it may sound, I noticed that the Portuguese use this word excessively. Below are some of the examples:
1. A conversation of me and my friends with the hotel receptionist.
Us: Can you please show us in the map where the center is?
Lady: We are now here okay.
Us: *Confused* *Hm, maybe she didn’t understand our question*
Us: Okay, so how can we go to the center?
Lady: Porto is a beautiful city okay. You get out of the hotel, and you see the street okay. You turn left okay….
2. Conversation with our dear Portuguese friend Paulo.
Me: Welcome to our group Paulo.
Paulo: Okay, okay. I am happy to join this project okay.
Me: Um okay…
Paulo: I can translating for you guys okay.
3. The most classic one.
*Buying a pedicure set at the mall and trying to enter the pin for visa card*
The machine on the display: 25 Euro, OK?
Bam, we go laughing our asses off.
Portugal is amazing okay.
