I am sure that in Elbonia cultural sensitivity training consists of explaining how here in the US people warm chairs with their behinds for 10 hours a day to placate the gods of "gainful employment". It is an interesting ritual if you are ever able do observe it, akin to monks sitting on pillars, as it does not appear to matter what people are actually doing during that time.

On the downside I cannot think of any way to exploit this wierd cult to for personal gain.

Alice's demand for 20% is a test of the first use of this "negotiating tool." When that is successful, and it is indicated by the Elbonian's response that it is, I'm sure Alice will up the ante.

Ok the cultural sensitivity guy did a bad job and now it can never be undone. The Elbonians should invite him to Elbonia and prevent the problum from repeating.

You are absolutely correct. I was Asok for a time and I survived the first round of layoffs in the company for that very reason...
Sadly, they were forced into a second round ... :-(
Oh well, at least I got to spend the summer studying for the FE exam (no work to do) and got paid for it.

I can't believe Elbonian souls are just worth 20% of the price. Some of the retailers just give 20% for a weekend sale. If you ask me, I would say Elbonians are getting a good deal here..
