Anyways, the folding scissors in the glovebox reminded me of my good old school days

Thanks for clarifying. Didnt try to figure out the underlying meaning.

What does north and south have to do with hygiene standards?
thats what i thought while posting...
I must say that's some imaginative thinking.

Ah but see his name - he smokes leaves. It all makes sense now. >>>
Need to reprogram my sense of humour. Too much dust. I gues i shudve made it to the mumbai meet... read that there was lots to laugh about.

I can understand your concern. I think politically correct words would have been 'beach challenged'. Usage: The manager & his family were beach challenged.

Unhappy the end of the world

Some people are born slobs, and some people just can't help it.

All I'm going to say is - I've seen worse.

Jay - I surely was not mentioning North Indian hygiene standards when I posted that. Anyways my point was what exactly a few members have understood rightly. Anyways i give you the benefit of doubt. Hota hai yaar.

btw - in the 1st picture, is that a used ear bud in the right corner?

That surely is an ear bud, used or not. Gautam have you reprimanded him in any way? I really am recalling that Matrix wala advertisement here. Company ka maal, dariya mein daal!

IMO, the thread & all the posts containing the words needs to be edited in order to avoid future debate.

I like your idea. But to be challenged you need to be something-ly challenged. I am the unwarranted English teacher so therefore must expand on your idea.

I declare all North Indians to be beachily challenged. Hygienic, but beachily challenged.

I cannot tell, however if you DO suspect it is used, I do not think that the ear bud in the glove compartment has been used to clean earwax.
The cotton tip visible in the picture would have had some distinct brownish smudges had it been used in that manner.
Do the tips have a slightly bitter smell?

If I had that for a moment in my car, I'd perish with a multitude of spontaneous organ failures.

Now your generalising what about the North Indians who stay in South India say Chennai. How will they be beachily challeneged?

In which case I am a west Indian (uncontrol) who is from East India but is staying in South India but I am beachily challenged.

N_C does the guy work with you and is it a company car?

I remember showing my dad his company car, a chevy optra which was being driven by the person who works in his office. The car did not have a single panel on it which was not dented.

Next day my dad summoned him and asked why the company car was in such bad shape. His reply was that he is not eligible for a driver and he has to self drive and bangy traffic is bad so the car keeps getting hit. My dad gave him an earful and next day car went for repairs.

I make it a point that no one eats in car and if at all have to, then keep a paper below for ease of cleaning. And after reaching home approximately 2 hours of cleaning is ensured by me. I dont like food fallen all over the place.



OT: Can we put North/South/East/West Indian discussion to an end.

That is really bad. He does not deserve a new company car. I doubt whether he would do the same if he has bought the car with his own money.
