1. When in India
If they agree, they shake head. If they disagree, they shake head. If they don’t understand, they shake head.
2. When you ask for the way
If they know, they show you the way. If they don’t, they still show you the way. If you ask: “Are you sure?”, they shake head.
3. When you eat out
If you don’t tell them not to put chilli, they put chilli. If you tell them not to put chilli, they still put chilli. If you point out, they say: “This chilli is not s-pi-ceee.”
4. When you go street shopping
The price is 1000Rs. If you pay 1000Rs, you get it. If you pay 500Rs, you also get it. If you pay 250Rs, you still get it.
5. When you drive
If it’s green light, they sometimes go ahead and sometimes stop. If it’s red light, they sometimes stop and sometimes go ahead. If they are caught by police, they sometimes pay fine and most of the time bribe.
6. When you are a tourist
A guy approaches to ask if you need help. If you say Yes, he follows you. If you say No, he says “It’s ok” and still follows you. In the end, he asks for money for stalking you around.
7. When you use mobile
If you activate a value added service, it is activated. If you don’t activate the service, it is still activated. If you want to deactivate the service, you have to send an SMS. It costs.
8. When you go to a group meeting
If you come on time, you will have to wait. If you come 30mins late, you will still have to wait. If you come 1 hour late, they already changed to another location without informing you.
Oops, I planned to make it 10 but it seems like Indians are better than I thought.
