Like many Tanker staff, I`ve worked in the Persian/Arabian Gulf, and sailed with many different ethnic crews, and most of us have assimilated some of their cultures and languages. One of the great joys of seagoing was to experience and revel in different cultures (I even married an English woman... for the avoidance of doubt, that is a joke)
I live in southern Spain and have Moroccan, Algerian and other Sahrian
friends with whom I attempt to exchange linguistic experiences and from whom I try to gain more understanding of their culture.. we don't have PC here.
Rather than inject Political Correctness into a slightly amusing conversation, perhaps you may wish to embrace the joys of mutual respect, understanding and language.
