Re: Passin' the hose!
I was taught this a long time ago by my family (im lebanese). its just courtious, some people take it very offensively if you pass it tip forward in an upward direction. (kind of like saying f u). however with my friends whom are not of arabic descent I just pass it any which way, as they dont care and its easier. though i do take the time to educate them in case they find themselves in a position of smoking with someone of that culture
