In New Zealand, it is possible to disagree with a manager as long as this is done in a very indirect way. Some migrants struggle to express disagreement in a suitably polite way. Ben and Hans are discussing some differences regarding one of the teams working in the orchards. Hans is a new migrant.
If you were Ben how would you have responded?
In the same way. Hans has disagreed in a very direct manner.
Asked Hans why he disagrees so strongly rather than responding to him in a similar manner.
Let it pass and then got one of the other guys to talk to him later about how rude he sounds when he disagrees.
