Er..nor has ours, torledo. English food has always been a bit of a joke in world cuisine terms.
Beside the point anyway - no more xenophobia please
Mattx - tell yourself you are DEFINITELY NOT going to take the job. Be really convincing.
Tell your loved ones as well (the adults, anyway).
now, do you feel relieved, or sorry?
If you are able to convince yourself, this approach works. Although, speaking as an ex headhunter/computer recruitment consultant I must say that all this angst means that you are leaning towards NOT taking it.
The money is obviously a big consideration. Cut it out of the equation. Now how do you feel?
Hope this helps
i object to you interpreting my comments as xenophobic. They were nothing of the sort.
Thanks all for the advice so far - even the cuisine postings are an interesting read...
I'll let you know what I decide next week. [ Just to bore the pants of you further ]
Sorry but Xenophobia is defined as:
"a fear or contempt of that which is foreign or unknown"
Were you not expressing contempt of something foreign: i.e. Polish Food??
And possibly fear as well as you don't seem to have tried it yourself.
but i'm sure that wikipedia definition of xenophobia is incomplete.
A lot of us have contempt for much of what is foreign or alien to us. i admit to disliking tattoos and body piercings even though i have never experienced any, but my contempt is still there. Simiarly a lot of peole have contempt for the german trait of hogging the poolside sunbeds when they go on holiday....Fortunately for the majority our fears don't manifest into a pathological hatred.

To get this thread back on topic - sort of - I don't know why but I've got this mental image of mattx singing "should I stay or should I go?" Joe Strummer/Clash style.......
(For those of you too young to know, Joe Strummer was the lead singer of the punk band The Clash and "Should I stay or should I go?" and "London Calling" are two of their most famous songs.....
And yes, I'm showing my age now.

I thought of the same song -but then I am an Old Fart
But joedetic? Given your avatar I think you may have been born in the wrong decade!!
So is it 70's prog rock or punk or what with you?
Born in the wrong decade....believe it or not I have actually heard that one before.
I like all sorts Quite a big fan of prog rock and classic rock but I'll listen to most things.
What can I say...I have good taste That or I'm an old fart WAY before my time.
