I just don't know

Post by Matt; My carpet cleaner on Thu Jul 16, 2015 3:52 pm

I was cleaning for a middle eastern family today. Parents, kids and grandparents in the household. When I got to the master bed room, the husband when into the master bath and I could hear the wife talking in there. 5 minutes later the mother in law was bang ing on the the door to be let in.
Not sure if they are taking water conservation to a new level or ....

Hard to figuire out some cultures.

I remember back aboard ship en route to Saudi Arabia and seeing the Egyptians head to the showers. They just went in and washed their feet in the toilets. confused

Then you go and offer a Norwegian some peanut butter and they are likely to vomit just from the smell of it. Meanwhile, they are eating squid paste from a tube.

That's what makes the world so interesting.....people are just weird everywhere that you go.

ya I agree,     they were probably figuring out that this wasnt going to be a 9-10hr job for the money they agreed upon

sometimes I just quote those accents really high, sound prejudice but really I know what I am getting into 98% of the time..

Knowing your audience for a comic is the difference between being funny and being offensive. It is a must-have skill to survive on stage.

The same is true in business.
