You have just returned from U.S if.........
you see any of the following odd schizophrenic symptoms in guys/gals
1. When somebody asks you a question, that you dont know an answer, you just reply back saying "Good question"
2. When you are thinking about something logical and pretending that you are trying to find an answer and you keep asking "You know what" or "Guess what"
3. When the fact was you walked in at 9.30 to office, you however say to your colleague, "You know in XXXXX (replace the XXXX with the city/place where you lived in U.S), we are in dot 7.00 at office in the morning"
4. You always crib about losing your personal life as if you were dancing with Mariah Carey when you were in U.S!
5. You ask "What toppings you add" in a pizza stall when you very well knew that, day before yesterday's rotten tomoatoes and onions were added to it!
6. When at the vegetable stall you ask for "Egg plant instead of brinjal or Okra instead of lady's finger"!
7. When you ask "Is there a working from home option" , when the fact was you were snoring like pig at home in the name of "Working from home"
8. When you have a simple fever, you search google, yahoo and every other busted website when you very well know that the medicine is right in front of you!
9. And even if you dont find a medicine and visit a doc, and he says "Eat good food, exercise and take care" - you reply back "You too!"
10. Every now and then you say "Ah this city sucks man! its too hot, you know how it used to be in XXXX(again replace the same city name as in point 3), as if you were born in the royal dynasty of emperor penguins in anatartica!
11. If you say "Hey this food has more calories or more fat", when the fact was you gobbled 3 parathas and 5 samosas for your breakfast!
12. When you say "I hate this pollution and unclean attitude of these guys", when you were the first to drop the ticket on the road, after returning from a theatre!
13. When your colleague asks "Hey! how about a lunch at the Andhra Mess today" and you scare the shit out of him by replying "Sounds good!"
14. You throw your arms and legs frenzily in the air as if you had fits when you listen to songs using your headphones and shake your head to and fro like a buffalo chewing fodder!
15. To top it all, you screw your jaws at 135 Degrees(to imitate the American English) and say "Howwwah yo doin' maaaaan" when all you wanted to ask was "How are you!" :)

Statuory Warning: My upcoming posts are going to be little serious, I hope you would've laughed your hearts out reading the ones so far - I may be writing on either of the following:
1. Fox Hunting - Part 2
2. Eternal Elixir of Life - Water
3. Magic of Music
4. Longing heart of a young soul!
5. 'N' Ways to get the best from yourself
Have a great weekend!

Good one !

Curiously, i have seen people put on a accent even if they have been 'over there' for 15 days! We call such accents 'Peter' and is applicable to anyone who has returned from anywhere closer west. The consulate included !

There are other stuff too. Like 'Sidewalk' for Platform
Like 'Cookies' for 'Biscuits'
Like 'hey dude'..!

The thought that the western world is superior is firmly ingrained in many of us. It has changed though for many of the westerners !!

Good one IA. How truw ppl' get infected with words huh..

Your template is awesome and pretty diffeent from what I have searched before.

Your blog name is mixed with title in navigation bar. May eb you need to alter that.

Pritz in malay and sing' ppl' are so used with "la" right.

IA: this is priya posting. When I login with blogger a/c its not accepting.


At 7:00 PM, Blogger indianangel

Prithz: Thanks! I'vent heard that before!
Kavi: Thanks for pointing out the other words! Yes we do use the term "Peter" but on a more general note to those folks who incessantly lie a lot! :)

Pria: I think that issue will happen if your screen resolution is less than 1024X768. try changing your resolution and you will see that the title is merging with the header! Anyway let me see if I can work that! Thx! I know this has been a issue before, which is why I'vent switched to beta yet! :)

At least those back from there is understandable...but then if you happen to be a neighbour of a U.S returned person you get the accent. Have you heard of this before? I had a classmate in school who came to school with the accent one day,the reason her neighbour had just returned from U.S & she spoke to him that morning!

Hilarious post!Enjoyed it.
