and thank you Sugar n Spice for letting me know 🙂
SSC results were declared in Maharashtra on Friday. I realised that unlike my previous company, the average age of people working in this company is much more.
Whats the connection?
Too many people, who distributed sweets yesterday claiming their sons/daughters passed class 10!
1. A girl with 93% yes yes 93% is opting for commerce because she feels she cant do too well in science and she has an aptitude for commerce…can you imagine this happening a few years back?
2. A girl with 89% wants to take up arts because she wants to become a journalist..
in both cases, the parents are a bit disappointed but definitely not forcing them to take science…so aal izz well with the world right?
My parents arrived on Friday early morning from Goa to Dadar. They took a cab to my house. It was about 5 in the morning, kinda dark even inside the cab. Let me clarify that my dad has studied in Mumbai for a long time, and he frequently visits mumbai and knows most places very well and is definitely used to the cab drivers of Dadar.
Anyways, so they both load the luggage and sit inside the cab when one guy (OG) comes and sits next to the driver and says that I had done 230 kilometres of driving so give me 600 Rs.
The driver (D) takes out a 1000 Rs note and gives it
OG: Give me change
D: I dont have change..turns to my dad and says do you have two 500 rs note
Pa: Yes I do
Ma says to pa not to give him money but pa is like this guy needs to go home and all that
D: Sir, you gave me one hundred rs note and one five hundred rs. note.
Pa apologises and gives him a 500 rs note and takes back the 100 rs note
Dad is a bit confused..darkness, plus lack of sleep in the morning
D: Sir the note you gave is torn
Pa tells ma to give him a 500 rs note. ma refuses but dad insists because that guy has to go home
so ma takes out 500 rs and gives it to him and he tells ma that you gave me a 100 rs note.
ma is confused but takes the 100 rs note and then gives him another 500 rs note
and he says madam this note is torn..
ma is furious and says take back your 1000 rs and please give me my 500s back. I dont want to deal with you
he gives back two 500 rs notes and then takes back his 1000 but effectively he has taken 1500 rs from my parents and they didnt even realise it
Usually ma pa are very very careful people, but this guy was so convincing that they thought they had made a mistake..
when ma saw the notes he gave later in the day, they were torn…so basically this gang targets people early in the morning, sleepy and tired, tells them they gave 100 rs instead of 500 rs and then give them torn notes instead..
people getting down at Dadar station in the morning, please be very careful and dont give any change to any of these guys
Saw this as Ratzz’s tagline on gtalk and it says ‘Gained Weight, yipeee’ I didnt even have the heart to check my emails…bah!
I am getting the company bus to work everyday since FIL planned to stay back here in Mumbai till the 17th of July..till then life is bliss and so is travel 🙂
I so much want to eat hot Chinese schewan noodles, Manchurian and spring rolls….bad case of throat infection though 😦
R comes up with the most unique reasons for a meltdown..I guess she is definitely innovative…so yesterday it was ‘Amma, you dont make food, let Thatha make it! you read my school book’
yes she managed to cry for about 15 minutes continuously, saying amma you dont cook…and in that 15 minutes, I managed to keep the cooker and vaghar the bhaji (FIL had cut it and kept)…CB, CR, I am following both your advice 🙂
and then after the meltdown stopped, (I ignored her for some time as CB suggested and then spoke to her in a calm tone as per the link sent by CR) saying that this is going to happen everyday that ma needs to come back home and cook..so I give you two choices – either you can cry and waste your time, or you can sit next to me and open your book and we will read it together…
She, being her father’s daughter, is yet to give me an answer to that 😉
