ILP-0004: Give Me Lylon Bag
Get the lessons learned, tips, strategies and actionable insights that will help you thrive as a first-generation Canadian immigrant. Enjoy the Canadian Narrative of an immigrant's life.
This week, I present the story of a new immigrant who went into one of the Real Canadian Superstores to buy groceries and requested the cashier to provide him with 'lylon' bag. The cashier and the immigrant both got confused. The two of them spoke English to each other but there was a communication gap. What exactly was his need? How was that resolved? Check out this funny learning moment that uncovers one of the subtle differences in culture that can show up even when you speak the language of your new Canadian community fluently. This is a very funny one so, make sure you are not eating a spicy meal while listening to it!
