I own a small company that develops software applications-provides scripts and themes for training materials. I have been contracted by a company that has since outsourced major parts of the final project to an Indian (raghead, not Tonto) software developer. So, me and a few other luckless contracting fuckheads are having weekly conference calls with the Indian company. Every two or three minutes someone pipes in with 'Could you repeat that?' or 'I didn't get all that?' or something else related to the language barrier. You can almost smell the curry over the phone. They put me on hold the other day while they were looking for something. Sitar music and some sort of woman signing or a cat being dismembered, I'm still not sure. I am finding the experience to be well below average.
