PODCAST: Shock Collar Question of the Day (09/15/20)

Jose is wearing the Shock Collar this morning!

Today’s question: Gift-giving can be a different experience depending on where you are in the world. In Japan, it’s considered polite to refuse a gift up to three times, and even when you accept it, you’re not supposed to open it until the gift giver is out of the room. In Russia, you wouldn’t typically give a bouquet of flowers because those are reserved for funerals. But today, we’re talking about Latvia. And specifically, in Latvia, it’s considered unlucky to give a gift of socks or shoes to someone important to you. Not because they are bad gifts, but more because of what that gesture says about your relationship. Tell me Why.
