The Bhutanese “No!”

The Bhutanese are a very congenial people and are loathe to say “No” so much so that an affirmative on their side may in fact be a “No” in disguise. It’s bad manners to appear too sure or aggressive, as they believe in softness and humility. Often you have to insist to a Bhutanese to accept a gift or treat as it is deemed bad etiquette to accept something at first offering. So the next time, a Bhutanese says “No”, use your discernment to judge whether he really means it or not!
