PARE – How far is too far for anglicisms?

Sometimes I have to stop the person I’m speaking with and ask them “Excuse me, but what exactly did you mean to say with ___?”. It’s a bit complicated for me to follow the Spanish meaning of the English words, now used as something “cool”. I’d love to hear your opinions – I tend to remember that […]

We are getting old, and nobody is having babies!

Ok – it’s a slight exaggeration (I’ll never get old ;)), but now that I’ve got your undivided attention – what should we do about it? Whatmore, a few questions come to mind – how do we treat the elderly? What age shall we be expected to work until? How long will the younger generation be socially accepted […]

Have you ever been in that situation that… you just don’t know? For me, it has always depended on the attitude of the others, so it has never felt like much of a problem – except of course, that one time. That one time it didn’t feel natural, other people were undecided, so, […]

Disgruntled employees? Not here, that’s for sure!

I’ve always said that I’d hire anybody who has McDonald’s on their cv, before other candidates, and possible more qualified candidates. The work ethics are just incredible there!
