Real Serbian Men Don't Do Dishes

I was just ushering a visiting girlfriend into the kitchen for some coffee when she shrieked. "Oh My God!" What? I'm looking around like crazy - is it a mouse, a fire, a pool of blood?

She turns around and pushes me back out to our hallway where we can be alone. Then, in a lowered tone she whispers, "Your husband is doing the dishes." "And...?" I reply. "In Serbia men do not do dishes."

Oh. And here I thought I was married to a real Serb.

My boyfriend also does dishes. I think it's more a thing of upbringing. But yes, serbian men don't help in households, only if you teach them.
