From What I've Read!

It is ok to feel irrationally nervous when you have to go round the room and say your name and where you're form..

It is always difficult to have the perfect reputation at work... We can be crazy or boring, lazy or a suck-up, but we'll never conquer the middle ground...

  1. I hate those 12-step groups too! ;-))))

    Me: "Hello, my name is Marvin, and I'm a compulsive observer."

    (all, bored): "Hi Marvin."

  3. I found it the best way to know each other. At the beginning of every semester I tell my students where I am from and make fun of my accent and ask them to tell the class their names and where they came from. I don't find it intimidating. Maybe in the work environment it is different.

  4. For me I like to know at least the names, and if it's a work meeting I like to know the jobs too BUT if the "where are u from?" means the Original country this is some thing will totally destroy my mood :S

    Halla2 about the reputation , in my work even u r an easy girl " sahleh" or " shayfeh 7alha"
    For me they usually go with the 2nd eputation :$
    "zolman wa bohtanan w7yatek" :(

    لإني كل مرّة بحكي المسمى الوظيفي
    بلاقي كل الوجوه مسنترة عليّه
    وبدي ساعة تا أشرحلهم
    فا من جديد صرت أختصر
    وأقول مخرج ومصور

    It depends on the colleagues and their personalities.. Some would look at you as your enemy since you almost share the same position..
