Why do Iranians think I am tired all of the time?
Ask An Iranian - Why do Iranians think I'm tired all of the time - Black Persian cat - Khaste nabashi

In this show we discuss an odd question by Karen, who we suspect has Iranian friends that keep telling her, “don’t be tired”.

During this episode, we also tackle other topics, such as:

  • How should I use the Persian term “khaste nabashi” (“don’t be tired”)?
  • When should I not use the term “khaste nabashi”?
  • How should I greet and thank Iranian taxi drivers?
  • If I only ever learn one Persian (Farsi) phrase, what should it be?
  • How long is a ‘one metre ice cream’?

If you have any additional questions about how to use the Iranian term “khaste nabashi” (“don’t be tired”), please add a comment below and we’ll do our best to answer it. If you yourself are Iranian and feel we’ve not done this topic any justice, then please comment below and to help enlighten our audience.
