A victim of Gandhi kanakku, here's episode 843 of my life.
"I will drop you in Bandra" said Devadai a.k.a Bruhaspati at 9.30pm as I packed my bags to leave office. We took a cab till Bandra. Enroute I was subjected to some sogakkadais and "Am I not your friend?" kinda senti stuff which I promptly ignored. At Bandra reclamation where I wanted to get down to take an audo devadhai said "Let's go till Pali naka... you can take an auto from there avoiding the big roads". "What concern!" I said to myself.
As the cab touched Palinaka, I turned right to ask how much I owed her... and pal disappeared... Yes! She disappeared and I saw her running towards some man (who she later said was her friend or something) putting one number conversation. I could see from the cab's mirror that neither did he act like a friend nor was he interested in the conversation. Soon after I paid a 90 bucks, pal appeared from nowhere and 'escorted' me to an auto. No mention of monies , "how much do I owe you?" etc. I felt / feel like an idiot infront of a shameless, looseu ponnu who did all this senti "You are my only friend in office " kinda talk only to avoid paying for the cab. Ada shaniyane.
This is not the first time. Episodes no. 456, 789 will tell you how people land up at my desk when I order for my favourite Dal Khichdi, act busy and say "Order for me also na pleaseeee" and disappear when it came to payment and appeared when the food came to the desk. Again no mention of monies . Why me, Andavaa? Did someone say 'Pasi vandaal pattum parandu pogum". No. Pasi vandaal panamum marandu pogum.
One kostan - Don't these people feel embarrassed? Don't they feel like hanging themselves when they owe people money? How do they get away with their Gandhi kanakku acts?
I got an email / comment a couple of days ago after this post "Send this clock and give it to H, I will be meeting at her at Hyderabad". Whatt? Did you reallly mean what you said? Are you my akka/ thangachi ? Am I your servant? "Please transfer monies" replied I . Couldn't care about anything else. Ofcourse there was a smiley added to the comment which denoted this - "If you buy , laabam for me. If you ask me for monies, I can always getaway by saying, I put a smiley, I didn't mean it". Pongappa.
No more being nice to peoples when it comes to Gandhi kanakku. Enough of Gandhi-giri. Inime karate-giri daan. Wish me luck. I meet Devadhai everyday at work.
