Whilst studying in the U.K., whenever I used to go out pubbing with my Irish, Scottish & British mates… had always noticed, they always referred to the American exchange students as “pretentious knobble-headed twats“… not that I loved it very much, but yep, this kinda stuck with me… The Americans were always around the pool table, though they haven’t got a clue how college pool is played, and the best thing they can always do – never ever ever stop complaining… about the people, culture, weather, food, and on and on and on… anyways, we had one such colleague of mine whilst working in the U.K. And believe me, met the same set of whiners therein.
Till the recent past, had met some absolutely wonderful Americans through work… sincere, hard-working, tremendously intelligent, extremely honest, and last but not the least, never complain about anything… But yes, miss these former delusional, self-important, pathetic whiner types… :))))
Moral of the story – Network at your peril )))) So after a long long time, finally met someone I really connected-with )))) These types complain about India, hate India to the core, hate the food, weather, people… but can’t do anything about it… cause if they go back, chances are they would either work at BurgerKing or McDonalds… especially after IBM’s decision to move another core UNIT from the US to India soon…. so yep… here’s the wonderful blog… guys, you’ll absolutely love it… especially her rants and muses in India… please do read it: http://angelacarson.wordpress.com/
I feature in the blog as well… :))))
Btw, a screenshot of my Network Update dedicated to the beautiful lady:
But do I hate her? Nope… never… yes, we started out on the wrong foot… but definitely wish her all the success in the world… Most Americans I have come across in my line of work are extremely sincere in their work, thorough professional to the core, and definitely pay respect to any culture anywhere on earth… Especially they are given special-crash-courses when they come to India for work… maybe she needs such a cross-culture course… otherwise, I feel she’s spending too much time with Indian-American-wannabes which is like one of the latest fads in India… she needs to go out, spend some quality time doing some social work, help the needy and yes, see the actual rural life in India, rather than sitting in her flat and creating blogs… in fact, if I knew her well, me and my buddies are making a trip to Andaman Islands soon, would have loved to invite her for an outing. Am sure she would have blogged from there as well…. lololol ))))) overall, yeah, love this lady 😉
Btw… one of my close pals advised me to watch the movie “Outsourced” after this event… so downloaded the DVD and watched it… was greatttttttttttttttttt… ))))
