This week’s question comes from Peter B.
Peter asks, “Sitting in an open office, a few meters away from my desk are a couple people in full burka. They tend to keep themselves to themselves and will only speak when spoken to, seem polite but uncommunicative. My policy is to be polite and respect the message here, which I interpret as: “leave me alone”. But is this the best I can do? Or should do?”
The winner will receive a copy of “A Brief Candle in the Dark” by Richard Dawkins.
