I'm hoping he connected the two events and made efforts to tone down his arrogance. You could have filled him in on how Karma is actually a capital in India...

If I ever go to India I guess I'll have to make sure to bring my own food, water, and toilet. I did somehow know Canberra is the capital of Australia. It's also the name of an old British bomber referenced a few times in old James Bond novels.

HA! Served him right it did! You must have had a pleasant stay after he was indisposed so much!

Well of course he was gruff and dismissive. HE WAS IN FRIGGIN' INDIA! (Sorry, one of my few unfortunate prejudices.)

I make a point of NEVER eating cutlets that are oozing green stuff!!

Yay for karma!! If India is anything like here, that guide isn't taking you to a "safe" place to eat. He's taking you to the place that offers him the largest kickback from what the tourists pay to eat there. At least in Egypt, there are a plethora of 5-star hotels near all the important sites.

I'm sorry I've been away from reading blogs for so long! What a funny story to start back up with. Thanks for the chuckle.

Canberra? I didn't know that. My stomach could never cope with India. Love, Janie

He eats a chicken cutlet with something green oozing out of it??? Well, there are more ways of being intelligent than knowing the capital of Australia if you ask me! :)

His name wouldn't happen to be Dick would it?

I love this post. Karma or paybacks are a bitch. That guy sounded like a real moron. One inevery crowd as they say.

This is karma for sure.

I was waiting to find out that the "chicken" cutlets had something to do with that black foot-long lizard.

Karma is a bitch that never forgets!

I love the fact he got a payback for his rudeness. How pretentious of him to quiz Mrs. C on a capital. We have 50 capitals, you should of handed him a piece of paper and started asking questions. What a putz. Gooey green....Sounds awful!!!
By: Cheryl P. on October 11, 2013
Hmmm, that always happens to me, too, when I go to an Indian restaurant . . . and I'm not talkin' about the rude part. I'm not ever rude to anyone!

You always have to be careful when it comes to food, even in your own country. I have no doubt that this Australian man was kicking himself out of sight knowing that he made a statement that took him down. Maybe Mrs C should have offered him something else to eat to soothe his stomach. I'd love to go to India, but I'm also aware that not every country has rules, laws, regulations like we do in Great Britain, so common sense and caution is always advised.

Oooh, that Karma can be a bitch!
By: Mitchell is Moving on October 12, 2013
oh my goodness....gotta love karma, she's a bitch I can applaud every time. tee hee
By: OmaLinda on October 12, 2013
Good decision in passing on the chicken. Like your thoughts about Karma. To Quote John Lennon "Instant Karma's gonna get you Gonna knock you right in the face You better get yourself together darling Join the human race." and we do "all shine on..."

Terrific story. So there is a God! I'm not sure, however, as to whether you will be employed by the Indian tourist board any time soon!

I think I've mentioned the girl next door, when I was a kid, was named Karma.

It is not very often one gets to see the workings of Karma in operation.................. :)
