Lesson of the Day - 1

When a office colleague meeting you for the first time over tea asks you politely 'So are you married?', do not gasp "NO!", pushing your head back with a revolted look on your face. Instead, politely nod sideways to indicate your status and gently ask her the same question. Because chances are that once you do so, the answer could be yes.

  1. also .. if the next question is 'do you have a girlfriend?'

    if in India - say no
    if not in India - say yes

    It doesn't matter what's reality. It's just easier to throw away the question this way.
