I was waiting in the lobby of a Hotel for an afternoon meeting with one of our principals when an apparent Guest of the hotel approached the information. The Guest is of a nationality noted to have a articulated social strata in their country. They are observed to be arrogant, announcing their position or education or if you give them a chair and a table and they will think they are already high in position. He asked the guy in the counter who happens to be his compatriot.
Guest: “Show me how to get to XYZ Mall”
Information: “Sure. Where to again?”
Guest: “To XYZ Mall. Do I have to repeat what I am saying? You’re not hard at hearing, are you? Are you all the same in your village?”

Information: “Okay. It is very near here. Just make a U-turn at the first corner and after 2 traffic lights, you turn right and you are already there.”
Guest: “Stop telling me what to do! I’m not your servant! Don’t you know that I am GM of ABC Company?”
Information: “Sir, I never tell you what to do. I am telling you the directions.”
Guest: “Just don’t tell me what to do. Don’t tell me to make a U-turn. I am not your servant!”
Information: “With fervent apologies Sir. Here is the map Sir. Certainly, it shows the directions anywhere in the city.”
Guest: “This will do, you Donkey!”
