Cross-cultural dialogue – Stereotypes Clash

A bunch of European students enter a small Indian shop to check if their SIM cards they purchased yesterday have already been approved.

Indian: “Sorry Sir, the Airtel Office informed us that your father’s name is missing. Please note it here.” [hands over a random book with a couple of numbers and names]

Italian student [ironically]: “Ahhhh, you want my father’s name. You also want my girlfriend’s name, eeeh?” [turns around and mumbles in a slightly lowered voice] “This Indian bureaucracy isse crazyyyy, eeeeh?”

Indian [ironically, maybe slightly serious]: Ummm, no Sir. We know that you change it too often. [smiles]

[Burst of laughter in the whole shop]
