My wife thinks I procrastinate. If that is true, I am the consummate planner when compared to the typical Indian.
Everything is last minute here. It drives me completely crazy. I am supposed to wait until the last minute to know whether or not I have a plane ticket. For an international flight! I find it very difficult to adjust to this manner of conducting business. Yes things do show up at the last minute but I get completely stressed out waiting for things to happen that should have already been done.
I was warned about this by a good friend. He told me this would happen. I remember him telling me but didn’t think much of it at the time. I have yet to figure out a way to just go along to get along. The gentleman who was my “guide” for the past few days was threatened with being fired as I blew my top over things not being done to my satisfaction today. I would love to hear what he is now telling his wife tonight about working with an American.
