Paisa Vasool.......

How many times have you gone shopping and spent every single paisa?How many times did you have to explain to the saleswoman that you are short of a rupee?How many times have you paid half the cash only in chillar?
If you'd ask me this question,i'd say-"Yeah....ONCE!!!"
And all of them at the same time!!!
So,here's the story.On a bright afternoon,when it was sunny enough,i pulled Rubs along to buy a book for my neighbour's kid.So before we entered the store,we had to find something to fill our guts.So here's where Rubs started imagining,that if the Almighty had made me a guy,then Rubs would surely want me as her husband.See-i drive her around when we are going anywhere together,and she simply has to shriek if a vehicle comes even within a meter's radius of us and overtaking even a cycle will generate a prompt slap on my shoulder from her.I finish up the leftovers on her plate every 9 out of 10 times.And i help her pull out the vehicle from the parking lot.So you see,according to her-I would be the perfect Pati Parameshwar.But alas,I'm a girl and we're both straight.So the first part of our noon was spent in discussing the various possibilities if I were a male or if we were not straight.Then we finally find a book for my neighbour's kid and then our eyes fall upon these diaries,with a complete handmade art design on its cover.Fond of writing,as we both are,we decided that we just gotta buy one for ourselves.And I was to give a close friend her B'day present,which was already a month overdue.
So,we were to buy 1 book and 3 diaries.
Total Amt:Rs 393.
Total Amt we had minus chillar:Rs.374
So we made up our minds to keep aside the diary which was meant for my friend,deciding that it could wait a little longer.So for now paid Rs.294 and left behind the diary.But since i had 70 bucks on me,i asked Rubs to empty all the chillar in her purse.So our chillar put together,we had Rs.98.I approached the saleswoman apprehensively,and explained to her that we were short of Re.1.She was sweet enough to understand our situation and obliged to bill it to us.So as we walked out we had all that we wanted to buy and only 50p left in my purse.Thats called Paisa Vasool.That sweet lady smiled at us when we went there today too....
I'm pretty sure half the guys reading this will exclaim-"Girls......!!!!!"
But cant help it,thats the way we are wired!!!!

I understood nothing from tat post ( Only additition subtraction of some numbers :D.I have forgotten maths !!) .The only statement tat went into my mind is "I finish up the leftovers on her plate every 9 out of 10 times" .
U & Rubs ? unbeatable jodi :P

I was once pushing my puntured bicyce home from College (3KMs) away in the hot mid day sun.
I must have really looked ready to collapse when a coconut seller offered a coconut, I was broke and I refused. But he gave it to me anyway.
I understood that day the importance of sharing and helping.
I returned the next day to pay him, but I should have paid much more than the price of a coconut itself!

@Iceman, your anecdote moved me in spite of the fact that I would have never done such a thing.

I'll share my similar experiance here---
me and my friends ate sumptuously in "chillers"(name of that place :D) near sadvidya... then realised none of us had money.. we told that owner honestly tat we din have a penny to pay him.. he agreed wen we told him tat we would pay him the next day but was lil irritated too since we were the first customers of the day! :P
if u r hubby of rubs then wat abt me!?! U had told u want a husband like me... wats this!? u are wife or husband now! :D
anusha said…
@kavya
i said i wanted a husband like you and rubs says she wants a husband like me....

keeping in mind the 4 conditions-mutual exclusion,hold and wait,no preemption and circular wait.....looks like our requirements are heading towards a deadlock condition!!!!
kavya said…
che che....very sad! we'll take this as our final sem proj and work on it... By the end of it we'll knonw whether u'll be husband or wife! :P :D LOL
