Cultural Insight
Eric: Now it's time for a quick cultural insight.
Marzena: It is not uncommon to ask where someone is going between friends, but be sure not to overuse this question. Asking where someone is going is regarded as something that is quite annoying, especially if you don't know that person so well. It can be seen as a kind of attack on their privacy and some people can become quite cold after being asked this question too many times.
