It was raining hard.
I had conveniently forgotten the raincoat (to be honest I don’t have one.)
I was drenched on my way back to home from office. I remembered that there was nothing to eat at home, so I stopped by a shop to buy Maggie 2 minute Noodles.
I put my helmet, on the glass. I bought Maggie and a Mirinda half liter bottle.
Since it was raining hard, and I was not carrying a bag with me I asked the shop owner (a young lady) to give me a carry bag.
A guy, who was also there, at the shop, and who probably knew the young shop owner, stared at me, removed my helmet and showed me a badly written note “कृपया पॉली बैग मागु नए!” (Please, do not ask for poly bag).
To which I instantly replied “मी कैरी बैग मागितला आहे पॉली बैग नाही!” (I have asked for a carry bag, not poly bag) 🙂 🙂 😛
The two of them got blanked out by my reply, and the next moments 3 of us were laughing. A help in the shop brought me a poly bag and I left smiling.:)
I found it funny… not sure whether you will…….
P.S: Reduce the use of Poly bags as much as you can, as it is not good for the environment. You can use a paper bag instead.
