We all want to fit in, to do things right, but sometimes, it goes wrong, translations are not enough, we see that on Bored Panda all day. My experience?

One time i was in Palermo, Sicily, and i said “basta” to the waiter because i didn’t want more pasta on my plate “pasta basta”! I was red after the explanation on “basta”, for me it was “enough”, “no more” but not offensive. PLEASE SHARE so i won’t be the only person who try and finally got a free laugh with understanding people.
