Well.. the word “Frank” seems to be misinterpreted in Anna University colleges, in addition to “Propose” as suggested by Sundar and Marc.
Its not my tendency to rant about people at all ! However, over the last 1 week, a couple of people have been freaking me out so much that I’d rather do this..
Look at this interesting conversation between a newly found friend (at the beach.. henceforth referred to as Beach)
Beach: Arun.. please give me a good system config to purchase.
Arun: Long winded discussion…
B: Ok bye..
After 4 days:
Beach: Arun.. my system is hanging when i start XYZ.
Arun: You bought your new system !! You never told me !
B: Oh.. yes I didn’t tell you
A: Stunned at the impoliteness of the person. However, Speaks for an hour and fixes problem.
B: Ok bye..
After a week:
Beach: Hi Arun.
Arun: Hi… what help do you need now ?
B: Write a program to generate the Pascal’s triangle.
A: Hey.. how come you dont bother to thank me after I help you out. You’re so damn impolite and you keep coming back for more help !
B: Yes.. that’s my habit. I dont thank people.
A: No sense of politeness and manners?
B: No.. Im a very FRANK person, you see !
Another stupid incident
Let’s call this person “NH”.
NH: Hey Arun.. that was nice of you dude ! thank you for writing a testimonial.
A: (Phew.. some manners at last). Sure dude ! Hey.. write one for me, will ya !
NH: Sorry da. I dont write testimonials on request.
A: Umm.. isn’t it a sign of good friendship ? Im not asking you to swim the pacific, am I ?
NH: No… Im a “FRANK”character. Sorry.
Frank… ummm… rashness, impoliteness and having no human character seems to be the supposed meaning of “Frank”
