On the brighter side, money penny is returning from Malaysia tonight! Nice one! I hear that Chico is not coming back (he apparently quit the job as he couldn’t cope with India) plus I been hearing gist about him becoming and unplanned daddy! Good on him.
This morning, I met the latest addition to the team, an Omani guy fresh out of Abu Dhabi! (Welcome to hell!) I tried to help the guy out a bit by telling him whom to go to and where. I remember my first day here at the office… there was no one to help me! Infact, it was almost as if I wasn’t being expected. To make matters worse, the guys sitting around me were just looking at me.. they obviously knew I was new.. but they just preferred to glance at me every now and again and not talk to me. So, I made a solemn vow, to always talk to any new face I see.. to at least try to make them feel comfortable and not as lost as I felt during my first day here.
So for this post’s gist. I have noticed since I arrived in India that most trucks, busses or similar vehicles normally have this baffling logo written behind them “Horn Ok Please”
What the hell does it mean? I do not know. It does not make sense to me or any other expat I have spoken to. “Horn Please” is rather logical, but “Horn OK Please?” I dunno! Like so many other things in India, I have learnt to just accept it and not question it since it seems as if this is the way its been done since “longtime back”
I somehow feel very happy today, maybe I will go to a nice restaurant this evening for a very nice meal with or without company!
Until the next post.
