I was reading this blog "Diz Ai", and Claudinha, the author was telling everyone how she always says or does the wrong thing. Oh, guess what? She is sooo not alone.
My first manager's meeting at a new job in New Zealand. Managers from all over the region were having dinner and having a good time. I was ok. did not really know any one yet, but I am normally fine in social occasions.
The dinner was over, I took the napkin from my lap (such great manners I have) and placed it on the table, as one should. The only small problem was the candle that was also on top of that particular table, and decided to viciously attack my napkin.
From that day onwards I was no longer the unfamiliar face. Or hands, I should say.
