Golu who works in a MNC was getting back to home from work on his bike when a decent looking guy asked for a ‘lift’. Golu gave him the ‘lift'( 😆 ) and both started conversing.
The guy told Golu that he works with a MNC (the same MNC Golu works for). Golu then asked him what kind of company is that and does it have branches in Pune?( He was cross checking if the guy was telling truth.) The guy replied with details. He then asked him about what kind of work he does over there and who is the department head. The guy once again replied with authentic details.
The guy then asked Golu for some money as he wanted to go to Mumbai urgently and has lost his wallet.
Golu told him that he can arrange for a Mumbai ticket but he will not give him any money.
Golu took him to bus stand bought a ticket for Mumbai and made sure that the guy was sitting in the bus.
But the urge to smoke took over and Golu went for a smoke, before the bus started.
Golu went to the bus again to make sure the guy is in the bus and is really going to Mumbai, but to his surprise the guy was missing.
Golu got angry with himself; although he did not give away money and acted pretty smartly he was duped.
It was dark now, and Golu thought to go to the same spot again, and surprisingly found the same guy asking for a lift. As it was quite dark now, the guy could not recognize Golu.
Golu caught him, slapped him a few times, and punched him nicely. The guy returned Golu 180 Rs and told him he returned the ticket and got the money.
Golu returned back half furious, half smiling to amuse me with his story.
P.S: Golu is nick name of my friend Anurag Upadhyay and he works for Cap Gemini, the name of my friend and his company has NOT been changed upon his insistence.
Moral of the Story: Avoid giving lifts to unknown people, it might be dangerous.
