Another "Hey Joe!" Incident...

Trying to save some face over here could get you killed. "Life is cheap here". That is something to consider before undertaking an altercation. Is this the hill you are willing to die for?

 

IMO your "hill" is pride and honour.

 

Their "hill" is stupidity.

Better than being called 'Francis' IMHO.

I agree.

 

On the other hand, I have a pretty good success rate in avoiding conversions with another expats on the street by greeting them with a friendly 'Hey Joe!'. :ROFLMAO:

It just shows some people really need to grow a thicker skin!

 

Do you remember that rhyme we used to sing as kids;

"Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me".
