Be a little more Zambian

Through our Facebook travels we stumbled on the BBC article, Smile, forgive and forget and be a little more Zambian. In essence, the author, Jo Fidgen, describes the Zambian way as “Smile, shake hands and act like it never happened”.

Now back in the UK, I am re-adjusting to life in a country where small slights are not so easily overlooked. Next time someone rubs me up the wrong way, I am going to try to be a little more Zambian about it. Smile, shake hands and act like it never happened. After all, as the Zambian proverb has it: Two thighs will always rub together.

Are you a “Smile, forgive and forget” Zambian?
