    Last month a world-wide telephone survey was conducted by the UN. The only question asked was:-

    "Would you please give your honest opinion about solutions to the food shortage in the rest of the world?"

    The survey was a huge failure because of the following:

    1. In Eastern Europe they didn't know what "honest" meant.
    2. In Western Europe they didn't know what "shortage" meant.
    3. In Africa they didn't know what "food" meant.
    4. In China they didn't know what "opinion" meant.
    5. In the Middle East they didn't know what "solution" meant.
    6. In South Africa they didn't know what "please" meant.
    7. In the USA they didn't know what "the rest of the world" meant.
    8. In Australia they hung up as soon as they heard the Indian accent

    As said before, you have a right to ask for person with an accent to your nationality if you are in your national country.
