My parents have always told me that I should never reveal to others how much I truly know or don't know, unless absolutely necessary. In a game theory sense, its logical to never let anyone get the upper hand by revealing too much. Evidently, this can work out in the oddest of scenarios...
So a co-worker was telling me about his Indian buddy who for whatever reason did not have a car for transportation. Maybe he had one, but didn't want to use it, I don't know. They were in Detroit and his buddy suggested they jaywalk across the expressway to save time. My co-worker refused, telling him that a cop could catch him and give him a ticket, so his friend went alone. Sure enough a cop caught him. As the cop questioned him, his immediate reply was "no english". The cop tried repeatedly to get him to explain what he was doing on the expressway but he kept repeating "no english" in his Indian accent. Frustrated the cop finally decided to give him a lift home. But how to explain the way home? His only reply: "here". So he just pointed and kept repeating "here" till they eventually arrived at his apartment.
Poor cop, smart Desi.
