Fangirling the Ə since 2006!

I recently worked with someone from a very different culture to the one I'm used to. I enjoyed learning about the similarities and differences, and of course it made me more sympathetic to an area I knew nothing about before.

However, we have very different ideas of respect, and he's made me promise that I'll let him kiss my feet whenever we meet. It makes me very uncomfortable, and even though I've explained that that sort of thing doesn't happen around here, he didn't get the hint. What do I do?

dk/dc: how do people show respect in your cultural background? how do people accept respect?
