Spoilt Indian Men

I had a lunch invitation at a colleague's place....non-veg lunch so only the colleagues who either eat non-veg or have no problem sitting with us had come....There was chicken and pulao on menu....Simple lunch....What struck me odd was that a colleague after he had finished eating,didn't pick up chicken leftovers from his plate and put in a bowl to make it easy to throw it in dustbin...Keeping the plate in the washing place is simply out of question....He comes from a typical orthodox Bihari family where the males are demi-gods and are not supposed to have manners or etiquette or do anything remotely related to housework. The women are supposed to wash their clothes, clean their leftovers,look after their children while they go out and earn bread. And he tells this proudly too!!! But the point is we maybe spolit kids of our homes but when we go to someone else's place , we should try and make the best impression.

I would be so embarrassed to leave a dirty plate for anyone. There is a theory, that you can know a lot about a man by watching how he treats the waiter-- I think you can judge a lot by how a person treats anyone who serves them.
