Gol posht o ru nadâreh
Literally: A flower has no front or back

Meaning: It’s no problem [that your back is to me.]

How to use it: In Iran, it’s rude to turn your back to someone. Even in a situation where you have no choice (like if you’re riding shotgun in the car), you should apologize. The person sitting behind you will say gol posht o ru nadâreh, implying that they aren’t offended that they are staring at the back of your head because like a flower, you’re beautiful all around. Taarof is brilliant, isn’t it?
