What is Cultural Sensitivity?

It is knowing not to gift a memory stick to a Principal of a school located 4 hours away from the nearest computer, that does not work. In the last 2 years.

Or giving a set of expensive business card holders to the woman without business cards. or a job.
Or rimu wood coasters to the owner of a massive logging company.

But, we can all rejoice because beer and wine is remains the common bridge we all cross, if not over it, then under it.
Here's another example of cultural sensitivity, having a tshirt that says 'Cock' might be okay somewhere else, will be frowned upon elsewhere, same goes for the lady with the random sleeves...that is called Cultural Faux pas, or rather, a faux pas altogether...what the fook was she thinking?
