How many times do we laugh at our own mistakes?
I always very open about enjoying my nonsense stuffs with others. Most of the times I being end up as a tho! When I get nostalgic, I remembered my foolish deeds. They are lots of, but here I am sharing with you the latest 3.
Ticket please:- One fine day, I was accompanying Heramb to his room, ( I guess it was fifa world cup time) Babar joined us at Shivajinagar. We three were headed towards to Sangavi. We were having a blast in PMT, until ticket checkers took control of the entire bus. They were checking everyone’s ticket. As babar joined later, he bought his own ticket, and produced the same. When TC turned over to me, I looked at Heramb. Expression on his face was-Oh shit! Not this time.
Heramb: Aree **** , you bought the ticket, show them. Me: Yeah, I am searching. Wait.
H: Do it fast. TC is waiting only for you. ( other passengers now having a good look at me)
Hmmmm, I searched everywhere, but no avail. I just remember one thing that I bought 2 tickets and while talking to H, I started folding them and made one fine slip, rest don’t ask! ( I even searched below my seat)
We paid fine of 50 each, then we looked at each other, we started laughing like mad. Others had a good time seeing my antics. (According to Heramb)
Recharge coupon:- Usually I preferred doing top up at shop. I kind of reluctant to recharge coupons.
One day I went for a top up and learnt that Docomo server was down. I was in urgent need, so I decided to buy recharge coupon. I am always afraid of scratching cards. I thought I may end up scratching numbers also. Other problem was, I really don’t know how to scratch them, either by coin or by nails.
This time I preferred nails. I started scratching the coupon. For the first few digits I was doing fine, and then the inevitable happened. I literally scratched through the coupon. Forget about seeing digits, now I can saw through it. I scratched rest carefully. I thought I might do some permutation and combination stuff regarding those erased 3-4 digits, but my enthu dropped after 4-5 failed attempts. Then I kept that coupon in my drawer. After that incident I bought only one coupon and get it well scratched from my junior.
1+1=2, 2-1=1 shirt:- It’s been almost 4-5 years down the line that I never do shopping with my parents.( or rather they were happy that they no longer have to wait for long while I zeroed on something!) I usually went with my bro or rather did it by my own.
This summer I and my brother decided to stitch shirts. We did so. Still my mother insisted to have some shirts. (Very sweet!) So here I am, this time with my friend went for shopping. He had a good flavor of shopping in Ahmednagar. So we went some shops but each time I disagree with salesman, who used to said that, this is the shirt only best fit for you,sir. (ha ha! What a marketing strategy)
Then we went in a shop who boasted some French title ( ces- la- vie) thinking that this may got some stuff. Indeed they had. I quickly select one. Then the battle begins for the second one. I was thinking of having a short sleeve. So he showed some shirts. I liked two of them, but not really liked!( cant explain the difference between the two) . After much hiatus, also intervention of shop owner I select one. I paid the cash. They sent the shirt for some finer arrangements to tailor. Then god knows what strike me, I decided to not have last shirt. I asked my friend, what should I do? He said, If you don’t like it, then don’t buy it. I asked him, why the hell he didn’t say that while paying cash. He simply said one thing which I follow most, i.e. follow your instincts. If you are not happy with it, then don’t.
Me: I think, I am having a second thought about having the second shirt.
S.O. (shop owner):- Arey sir, don’t worry. It will definitely suit you.
Me: Yeah I know, but still I don’t want it. Give my cash back for that shirt.
S.O: (now in real shock) Aree sir, I swear , it is a good shirt. About having cash back, I simply can’t, because bill is made, and I can’t alter that. (After that he called his assistant to cancel finer arrangement and bring back shirt)
Me: (Realizing he is saying right) Ok, but still it’s just 5 mins. Can u?
S. O: No.
Me: Ok, least give me credit note, I will purchase something later.
S.O: yes, I can do that, but still that shirt is nice.
Me: Yes, but no thanks.
I took a credit note .Thinking of, how to protect it till next time I will back to home. After that I and my friend had a very healthy laugh. He admitted that, he had seen many shopping horrors, but this was one of a kind. I told my brother about this incident, he just smiled back! I offered him some cash and asked him to buy him jeans. (I simply hate to go there again) but he rejected the idea.
Last time, I had been to home. This time I went alone to cash credit note. They didn’t recognize me, may be because of this time, I was sporting mustache. (Remember that dumb movie, Rab ne bana di Jodi) I quickly select one, at the time of payment I passed note. We all just smiled.
After that I decided not to do any kind of shopping in Ahmednagar।
PS: There is no reason to be logical in this illogical world since we are all surrounded by the ones who boasted illogical things in logical way!
