I have been away so first of all let me apologise to all the writers-bloggers-readers .. I have not been able to visit your blogs and not replied to your comments ..

Carrying on from the previous posts on thoughts here are a few , I have suddenly realised that English is such a funny Language.. I have my examples on that , you are walking down the road when a friend of yours Pointing at a person, says “Have you seen that man” .. Now to me that is funny what do they expect me to say NO, I AM blind I can’t see ..

I am a sucker for a bargain, anything would do, Now here is a situation where I think I made a bargain deal.

I was standing at a bus stop waiting for a bus, a few others were also doing the same thing as I Was, Oh yes waiting for the Bus that’s what we do at a bus stop..  when a friendly MADMAN came on the other side of the road, He was big ,looked strong too, Had that mean look to him .. not washed .. well seeing me the only indian standing I guess his eyes lit up , because other than me rest all looked similar to him, I was the only odd one out in the whole group .. Standing at the bus stop waiting at the bus stop ..  he looked at me, our eyes met , I looked away when I heard those words which I was dreading not to hear

OYE YOU.. oye you..youuuu ”  Now you can expect this to happen in a night or in a dark place but when it happens in the middle of the afternoon in broad daylight you kind of have that Gulp in your throat .. you are basically looking here and there hoping against hope that it’s not you who he is meaning to call ..   I ignored him

He crossed the road and came over , Looking menacingly at me says “Oye give me a pound or you going to get your head banged up and I am going to shove this knife somewhere” 

I am not joking here the moment he sayd ONE POUND.. My eyes lit up .. The gulp in the throat went away .. I took a deep breadth .. what a sense of  RELIEFFFFFFFF 

PHEWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW 

I was like  phewwwwwwwwwwwww …  that was close , he just wants a pound…  Sounds reasonable …..  BARGAINNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN.. What a DEALLLL  sir ji … .. HOT ONE

I have been stabbed earlier and I know it hurts and worst it puts a dampener on the evening , it would be so very inconvenient, Having to go to a hospital, sp much time wasted there , when to have a stab wound and that hole in the Suit I am wearing , there goes a £200/- suit wasted, what with a hole and blood stains .. not just that even the shirt I was wearing would be stained .. My quick calculative mind did some calculation .. as you can see How fast I was to point that £200/- suit .. Oh yes people I bought one 🙂   (got a few weddings coming on this summer , so a good investment )

Anyway back to the scenario, So this person I was talking of, here was a gentleman who offered me a fair bargain.. rather than putting me to any  inconvenience he wanted a POUND, What an idealist, where can you find such bargains anymore .. Not even the pound shop can offer such juicy deals.

To make the deal more juicier  and worth-while I also thought of the current  financial crisis .. yeah I know to bypass  a horrendous ordeal this indeed was a bargain … I hope you all are nodding with me in agreement here ..

Thats why I said I am a sucker for a good bargain 🙂
