Contrary to belief, Greek drivers will rarely if ever ask for money. Because there are few motorways in Greece, the national roads become great havens of locals and long distance drivers pouring in from the south east to west and vice versa, up into the north. Greece can be a little slow because many greeks tend to seemingly be afraid of Albanians. It's best not to ask too much about it as something close to racism and prejudice comes out.

Don't mention Macedonia either, theres this crazy Skopje argument that often insues.

Greek supermarkets also often throw away a whole lot of food. Watch out for that. Fuel for the thumb.
