One of the worst bits about having the Ferals as neighbors in Boston was getting the heebie-jeebies every time I heard an accent like theirs or saw people with their coloring and height walk by. Since they are Indian, that’s a whole lot of people to have the heebie-jeebies about.
At my new consulting gig, I’ve been in close contact with Sue who is also Indian. Unlike the Ferals, she’s exceptionally nice, professional and just all around great. It’s been a wonderful antidote to the effect the Ferals had on me.
