Cross-Cultural Blunders

Hello Everyone, We came across a great article today entitled Results of Poor Cross-Cultural Awareness, written (in 2005) by Neil Payne at Kwintessential Cross-Cultural Solutions, which gives more than a dozen amusing examples of cross-cultural blunders.

Take a quick read... you might find something in it to use in one of your presentations one day, or something to laugh about in your general expat conversations, or at the very least, something to make you feel that your own cross-cultural mistakes have not been so bad after all!

Some of these are so funny! But I wonder about companies who introduce products into foreign countries without doing their research (duh)? As for Bush, no big surprise, just a blundering "decider" who won't listen to anyone, anyway, least of all the American people!
