The Soviet Union has not existed for almost 30 years, but so far almost every one of us has had a piece of the Soviet heritage - certain habits that have arisen at one time because of the specific way of life. Some of them are useful, but there are also “sovok”, which have long been out of place in modern society. It is worth getting rid of them, because, except for harm, they bring nothing.
A better life is postponed for later
When this bright future comes, nobody knows, but the Soviet people always waited for him and therefore stocked up with everything they could, and did not throw anything away. They ate from old and sometimes cracked dishes, although the new and beautiful looked at them from a sideboard. They wore clothes and shoes to the victorious end, and new things were laid down in the "children-grandchildren" on the mezzanine.
Usually in the life of such people everything is clean, new and bright - not for every day. In their everyday life there is no place for elegant clothes, beautiful dishes, and sometimes delicious food for no reason. All the best - for later, for guests and for the holiday, because in the life of the holiday can not be.
This slogan, it seems, has long lodged in the heads of the Soviet people, calling to drag home everything that is not nailed down and not guarded. Yes, there used to be a shortage, and really good things were hard to get. The deficit has long passed, and the habit of pulling at least a pen or stapler from work is still there.
“For what it is, must be swallowed”
Since childhood, we were inspired to throw away food badly, so we should eat everything that was put on the plate. Even if a person is full or does not like something, he still has to sit and choke. And all because “if you don’t eat, you don’t grow up,” “for what you have eaten, you must be swallowed,” “better in us than in a bowl,” “nothing, they cooked?”. Familiar phrases, right?
God forbid they say a compliment
Have you ever noticed how some women heroically resist compliments? For example, to a sincere remark, “you look great today,” in response, it often happens “yes, I washed my head”, “yes, that you are, as always, just a new blouse”.
It was always difficult for a Soviet person to be thrown away - again due to a shortage. Therefore, cellophane bags accumulate over the years, old dishes, clothes and furniture can be given to relatives or to the country, tin boxes are constantly rattling with completely different buttons, balconies are filled up with old appliances.
