I am going to Jamaica for the first time! - by Adam
(Edmonton, Alberta, Canada)
I am going to Jamaica for the first time in a few months! I am a 25 yr old male and i live in canada but i'm worried that it will be assumed that i am just another rich, rude yankee.
I'm not saying that I stereotype americans as such but a lot of people do, and being from Canada i am in fact the exact opposite and i want to have a good repore with any locals I may socialize with.
Will using the word "IRIE" a lot get me in tight with the locals and let them know that I am a friendly dude or will it just make me sound dumb and patronizing?

DWL! I love your question my friend!
It's a frank and real question but I thought it is funny :-).
My recommendation, just be yourself brother, and that would be the suggestion I give to everyone in every sphere of life. Truly, if you be yourself you'll also do better - and more likely to be pereceived accurately.
We have some of the nicest and most heartwarming people anywhere on the planet so just be "irie" (true).
