I know it was a joke, and most of us know it is a joke but this reminds me of converasation I have had with one of my emirati friends about something very similar. He didnt take it as a joke and it hurt his feelings when someone made fun. We do have to be mindful, especially when you can tell that their first language is not english.

I agree with Jynxy. I faced a similar situation with my Egyptian colleague this week. I was talking about visiting Romania for a holiday and about Dracula's castle in Transylvania. He immediately asked me if I was talking about Dracula the "Bombire" and we all burst out laughing! Shame, the poor guy was so embarrassed!

Trashcan seems to be behaving

I hope he got his answer though....on weekends, we sit in front of the computer, log on to expatforum and take full advantage of the fact that our Dubai mods are out on the beach or at the mall somewhere so they can't delete our posts and tell us to move to the lounge!
