The Saint Vincent And The Grenadines People
When meeting a friend, Vincentians may offer a clever remark or witty challenge rather than a conventionally polite phrase. There are many popular Vincentian sayings, such as, “Monkey know which tree to climb” (don't anger that person or he'll get you), “Never hang your hat where your hand cannot reach” (don't over extend yourself), and “Shoulder can't go above head“ (you can't over reach people in authority).
