Sometimes it's hard to not divulge a lot/ramble when you're trying to get over anxiety. You tend to overcompensate for how nervous you are by being overly friendly and that can lead to word-vomit. Next time try to be a little more selective with what you share, OP! Good luck on your battle though, I also have social anxiety and I know how "normal" things can be a struggle. You can do it :)
64- Wow, way to bring the assholery to a whole new level. Really expressing your American spirit. Does being American really excuse ignorance? That being said, there was a minuscule chance it was an American style chip shop, selling fresh chips, which if you've never tried, should. "Chips" can be called "crisps" in the UK I think, correct me if I'm wrong :)
#82 they sell chips (fries) but they're really chunky ones not like skinny mcdonalds chips, battered fish, battered sausage, burgers etc. Some sell kebabs and pizzas, some are run by Chinese people and sell Chinese food too, and if you're really lucky you find ones that sell Mars bars in batter.
#28: It depends on which city you visit. My sister went on a rotary trip a few years back and ended up staying in a hotel that would make the Russian hotels look like the Hilton. She was mooned at a restaurant by more than one man who shouted that American politics and citizens aren't welcome in India. She was left in the middle of nowhere in a hot van for about an hour when she was trying to get to a meeting with the rest of the rotary members. I can't remember which city she was in, but for reference, she planned to stay for a month; she ended up coming home after three days.
Sorry to hear that!! But I guess she was just treated bad! My family owns a house in India so I don't have to depend on people to take me to places! But yeah hospitality sucks in India!! Unless you are staying with a family instead of a hotel! Because I took a friend to India with me and she loved it because I was there taking care of her! But as I said hospitality is not so good in India (well in some part of India).
