I am a software test engineer. I work with a lot of Indian(from India) people and have posted several times about interesting phrases spoken that they have no idea of the meaning of what they just said. I was just in a meeting of 3 guys and 2 girls. I was the only non-Indian. Both women are fairly attractive(sorry no pics).

Talking about setting up a server and an application for me to test.
One woman said, “Mike, I’ll set it up, would you hit it?”
Me, straining not to say “Like a retard on a drum set”, said sure.
Then she said to the group, “that will be great if Mike can hit it”.

Maybe she wants to Kama Sutra you! I have seen some dropdead gorgeous Indian chics.. Then There are the Arab hotties, OMG! Though they would make eye contact that was the line. In Bahrain I saw many, many Arab/mideast hotties that would make the best caucasian look average..

Mike, you should hit it!

LOL

why would she use that phrase?



Next time go right ahead and say the thing about the drum set or a screen door in a hurricane.

They won't know what that means either

They are pretty Americanized. Most of the women here do not wear the dots.

But they don't know a lot of American phrases.

My favorite still is when an attractive Indian woman stood up in her cube and announced to the whole department that she was going to take a dump!

She was talking about taking a database dump. But I just about died laughing.

After you're done "hitting" it you can press the big red, "That was EASY!!!" button. Every computer geek in the building has one now. It's really starting to annoy me.

Kinda like when I put inter-office mail/paperwork in one of the ladies mailbox, I tell them.. "I just stuck it in your box"..or if they are waiting for something, they tell me to "Just shove it in my box sometime today".....

Or even better, my HR manager is a hottie, and she is on my volley-ball team (bar league). It is the only time I can tell her she has a nice set without getting smacked.

I posted this before but...

We have the really hot blond lady at work and one day she poked her head in my cube, looked at me like this , and said:

"Hey, you want some pie?"

"What?"

"There's some apple pie in the kitchen."

"Oh, um, yeah. It think I will. Thanks."

It's just different to you is all.

Nothing is hotter then a true blonde chick esp vs. cultures where every girl has the same damn complexion.

There is a lot of fun to be had in explaining the "slang" meaning of what they just said to them. Hey, you are just trying to help them learn the language.

Actually, I travel the world pretty regular. I have been deployed for 9 of the last 12 months or so to every nook and cranny of the earth. I see the diversity pretty routine and still, foreign women have it hands down..

My ranking of hottest women from my personal experience:

1st: Italians
2nd: Greeks
3rd: Mideastern
4th: Brazilian
5th: Aussies
6th:Texans

Everyone else falls pretty short..

From looking at your list, its pretty clear again you like darker complexion women.
Might as well marry a black women and get it over with.

Touchy arent we!

You obviously never traveled.. And if you did you never looked around. Women of northern european decent are beautiful too but it seems women in warmer climates have better bodies, skin, and attitude. Nothing to do with race.. I'm just ranking them as I see them..

A few years ago I was working a company trade show in Germany. One of the girls working the booth worked in one of our eastern european offices. Before walking out of the booth, she says to me and my boss in a thick accent, "I'm going to go take a crap."

My boss and I were confused until we saw her walk over to the nearby stand that sold crepes.

She had the dot on the back of her head.

BTW the dot is called a bindi.

This reminds me of one of my wifes Japanese friends from college. I'll look for a picture later. Very cute at least a DD!

Anyway her younger brother 17 was visiting from Japan and had the same birthday as my wife. (Took lots of pictures of him with our evil assualt weapons to bring home and brag about.)

Anyway her, her BF and I were setting up for the party and were blowing up balloons.

She comes out and says: "I'm really good at blowing. When I was living in Japan I had a job blowing and it was alot of fun. I liked it alot..."

Needless to say me and her BF nearly pissed our pants. I recovered first took her by the hand and said "Well I have something that needs blowing why don't you come with me..." So she say's ok lets go..

I almost got out the door with her before the BF stopped me Sooo close, to this day she still has no idea why that was so funny.

My daughters best friend is Iranian, 2nd gen. She is one of the most beautiful women I've met. Men just get plain stupid of her.

All the more reason to say "It's not just your oil were after... we want your women too!"

I had an Indian prof in college who struggled with the English language(didn't we all?). Sometimes he would give us a problem to work on, and say, "If you have any questions, just raise your hand and I will come on your desk." Or if there was something he wanted us to remember from out textbook, he would tell us to take it to another school nearby(Yavapai) and xerox it. I don't know why we couldn't use our own copy machines. But anyway, when he said it, he said, "You can go to Yavapai and xerox your butt."

Another time his English was perfect, but still hilarious. He gave us a problem to work on, and some time to work on it. So he's walking around seeing what everyone is doing, and he walks past two guys talking about something completely unrelated to class, just as one guy says "man, that's bullshit." Of course the Indian guy thinks they're talking about his class so he says quite loudly, "No my friend, you are bullshit!"

Geek speak is replete with examples of innuendo.

Just the other day one of the test engineers on the team told me that he "pounded the hell out of the box" but could not get it to crash.

Gunspeak is as well. People seem to just love saying "humping the Garand", or "humpin the pig (M-60". Hope no one owns a Johnson 1941!
