ETA link of SB case
I don’t lend money at work. If it’s for a dire cause, and I can afford the figure, I will give the money and not expect it back. But I pointblank refuse any requests for a loan otherwise. However big or small. (This does not include paying for a cuppa or a sandwich). Mean?
I do not accept friend requests from colleagues on social network sites. And I very rarely socialise at a personal level with them or their families. Stuck-up?
I find people who get too friendly too fast a little scary. Suspicious?
I don’t eat at Saravana Bhavan. Anywhere. They’ve opened an outlet in Doha, and I refuse to patronise them. Why? Because the owner is a murderer/rapist and his sons are all in and out of jail for various immigration offences. My tiny contribution or lack of it is not going to pull down the empire, I am aware. But I still can’t eat there. Pointless?
I cannot respect people solely by virtue of their age or position. An older person doesn’t automatically qualify for my respect. Neither does someone just because they’ve climbed the corporate ladder. Career suicide?
I cannot prostrate in front of people. I grew up with that being drilled into my head touching someone’s feet or prostrating in front of them is unnecessary. You can seek someone’s blessing or show respect without making a spectacle of yourself. Arrogant?
