The local residents are distinguished by such character traits as sentiment and nervousness at the same time. In critical or responsive situations they can show tolerance and resolve any conflict with ease. There are different culture and communication in Athens. You will not find a word "ne" in any dictionary of the Greek language. Here it often means "yes", and instead of the word "no" the locals often say "oohs". The indigenous people have never been very punctual, so they can be late even for an important business meeting. Continuing the theme of the local dialect it is worth noting another word that sounds like "avrio". Literally, it is translated as "tomorrow", but in fact the word means a failure or reject.
Athenians never take their shoes off even when entering a home. They are very hospitable, but invite guests for a dinner or lunch quite rarely. The period starting from 2 to 6 p.m. is considered the time of day rest, so it would be better to refrain from phone calls on this time. You should also not call and after 10 p.m. as it will also be the sign of bad manners.
