I am starting a new thread, for all those working in the UK to share their experience with one another. This is to show how the brits are and how to tackle them, and mainly how to cope living in this country. You can share your funny moments and share a giggle! 1) When I first came to this country, my first job was up north. The first question they would ask is Do you like this place? Next they would ask when are you going back? I would answer that I like this place so much that I am not going back! You should see the reaction on their faces! 2) When some one asks money for buying a present for some one leaving the dept, initially i used to give 5 to 10 pounds. I thought it was like india, where i used to give 50 - 100 rupees. They were surprised and some would ask are you sure and do you want some change back. One day i saw a consultant giving 50 p. I was surprised and shocked and since then became smarter. I know of some consultant giving pennies! 3) I was once invited to a birthday party to restaurant. I thought of all the b'day parties in india thinking of enjoying some nice food. When I went there I was surprised that every one had to buy their own drink. We had some think to eat, and i thought the b'day boy will pay, but we all had to pay for our own food. Later on i went to a wedding where i had to buy my own drink. 4) In india when anyone come to their house you offer something to eat atleast a cup of drink. Brits dont invite you to their home, or even if you go they wont offer anything. If you by any chance invite them, they will hog food unshamedly. You just have to see the drug rep dinners. They visit their own parents once a year and fix an appointment before visiting them. More later!
