I thought that before I posted my latest Tales of The Office boy post, I would post a funny incident in which the tables were turned... Now Rajh has his own story to tell....about me. The clueless American Lady who is supposed to be smart, educated, yada...yada..yada..LOOOl
So, I get to work last week after reading all of your wonderful comments on how to speak his language. Mashallah! Such wonderful comments. And I want to thank each and everyone of you for the time you took to give me such advice......but I am afraid to say, you all wasted your time. :( Keep reading...
I took the time to learn some words to speak to him. I was prepared that day when I proceeded to make a complete fool out of myself..lol
I started with the basics..Hi. (mind you, I am thinking I am going to impress him with my vast knowledge). Then I ask for water. He is just staring at me. He gets it, after looking at me like I have lost my mind, and proceeds to bring water. I thank him, in "his" language. I have this up on my computer and I am flipping thru all of your comments as I am dazzling the office with my new found language of Hindi/Urdu...whatever the heck it was that was spilling from my mouth. Our CEO/MD comes to work at this point and I am like...YEAH! Now I get to ask Rajh if the "boss is here"...As I struggle to say it perfect, he begins to laugh. An uncontrollable laugh from the bottom of his gut, you know what I am talking about. When the face turns red and its hard to breath? Yeah, that kind of a laugh. I am confused. What is so funny? Wait for it...............
Me: What is so funny?
Rajh: That is Hindi
Me: Yes.. I learned it to talk to you.
Rajh: I am from Nepal
