College .. The word itself is so nostalgic.. we have so many memories attached with it .. I sometimes think of the time and seem to get lost in the huge ocean of memories , makes we want to go back in time to those days, Its been ages since I have left college but the stuff we did , the memories, the history we made .. each time I remember one such episode it lightens me up.. I have that twinkle in the eye, that energy , rush of blood which goes missing otherwise in the normal day to day routine that we call LIFE.

We have left college in search of new adventures, new roads, new ambitions.. but I for one still remember those days.. the 5 year of my life that I spent in college. The friends I made , the way we became friends , the silly things we did , the attitude, The no nonsense way , giving two hoots to life as if we were unbeatable.. nothing could touch us .. Not even KARNAIL SINGH the SHO of sector 11 police station..:)

Or the taunts and abusive language of RAJ KUMAR the new SHO of sector 11 police station.. Going back the very next day to college and almost beating up the same guy because of whom we were taken to police station.

Parents almost going nuts coming to know.. My dad almost threw me out of the house, when he found we had been rounded up and locked up, My grandfather I admire him so much, he stood by me and gave my bail.

The last night looking at the books for next days exams, having your friends stand outside the window to help you with answers and Ravjote singh my Friend standing in the exam hall asking the teacher to Allow me to Cheat..:)

Not attending any classes then having to run after teachers to get the lectures sorted.. MR AGGARWAL my physics teacher swearing No matter what he will not sort them.. then the scheming of stopping the postman on way to college to get the roll numbers .. trying to Patao the clerk to get the roll number.

Come diwali the burning of crackers in Mr GAUBA’s class.. Attaching it to a slow burning thing and 15-20 minutes into the lecture DHAAAAAAMMMMMM and Mr GAUBA (my chemistry professor) .. God bless him.. trying to be philosophical about it trying psychology on us, saying its the bad spirits or demons who are doing this.. and we students are so good ..

Sitting for hours in canteen, asking the guy to get tea and if ask for money throw a cup , and his saying ok ok leave it give it next month , then when he came next month , taking his book of accounts , slashing the days which had most money “IS DIN TO HUM COLLEGE AYE HI NAHIN”… (we did not come to college this day) a bill of 200 Rs slashed to 100 then give him rs 50 “BAAKI AGLE MAHINE MAIN ADJUST” (rest adjust next month)… and when it came to get NO dues signed he trying to be funny, cause it was his time then..

Standing at the gates, any girl passing she is mine.. blah blah trying to find ways to impress girls.. sometimes end up picking a fight.. beating up a guy thinking it would impress girls .. NO LUCK..😦

Sitting in canteen and someone coming running “PANGA HO GAYA”.. without asking what , just running for it, shouting “BABBAR” , “CHERRY” ,  “RAVI“, “ONKAR“, “BEDI“, “HANDLE”  come on and they in turn coming folding there shirt arms up to elbows..

End of year Standing in Queue to get the Roll numbers only to find out that I cant get the Roll number as I have Lectures shortage in almost every subject.

Going to Punjabi Mam, she was so beautiful who smiles when I ask “Mam Lecture poore kar deo Please” (Mam please complete my lectures).. awww blesss she did ..

Then walking to English Teacher Mr. Nijhawan who I find out today of all the days When I go home in evening sitting with my DAD.. They are class mate’s…  “OH £$%£”..  what do I do now, Dad will know and it will be chaos.. Phewwww he smiled, did not say a word.

Next day I went to him, I only had to say “Sir”..

“Tun dasiya nahin tun Mann da munda hain”.. (you did not say you are Mann’s son) .. He completed all my lectures, you see  I was good in english and represented college few times

Going to another professor who for some reason was having a bad day, “Jo karna hai kar le ” .. (do what you want to ) .. Not Poora Karoing (could not find the english word he he he:) ) .. your lectures .. and I have 75 short..

Ravjote Walks in the Lecture Room, “Oh sir , Kar deo poore .. Tuhada ki jaanda ” .. (sir please do, whats it to you) ..

He refuses, what was worst was 1st year students are having their practicals and it had to be all GIRLS.. The silly girls burst out laughing on hearing Ravi..  Which makes the professor more mad..

“Iske lecture poore nahin karne “.. Not completing this guys lectures .. he says pointing to me …

Ah well I tried the good way ..

Finding a way how to get roll numbers .. Get hold of a guy who is responsible of posting Roll numbers to college from the university:) .   don’t need to go to the other Two teachers  :)  sorteddddddd

End of year Viva Exam , my Physics lecturer asking Am I sure I am a student of that class , He has not seen me the whole year in any of the lectures.

Sector 11 Inspector who is known for talking with his DANDA, He would without any reason beat up students or who he did not like.. He is walking through the college Suddenly a Voice echoes

“Karnail Singh Kuteeee” …  (karnail singh you dog)….

Pin drop silence .. sudden hustle bustle .. corridor empty …

finding myself in LT1 (lecture theatre).. with  Onkar panting and exciting he says .. “I said it.. bloody hell .. first reaction is to slap him .. then having a hearty laugh.

 

I have so many memories of those years , If I start writing it will take years to put all of them down.. Those were the good old days , beautiful days..

This has been Long pending as I have been on and off Blogging.  The A to Z challenge is also started today so I thought what best way then to start it with a Cheer..

A

It is lucky that the Award comes from a person whose name also starts with an A.. Amira gave this award to me .

liebster-award

According to the Rules I got to answer some of the questions .. Which are as follows ..

1. Describe yourself in seven words…

Seven words are surly too less to describe me:)  but here it goes

I AM ME – EVERYTHING GOOD  BAD UGLY 

that is 7 words:)

2.What keeps you up at night?

I am a sound sleeper, the moment my head hits the pillow ,  I am Zonked out..

3.Whom would you like to be?

No one really. I feel we are all unique, just be yourself why would we want to be like someone else. God made us all for a purpose lets try to find that and concentrate on that, why do we want to become like somebody else and do what they would do. That will double our work list for sure. :)

4. Why do you choose to be that person? (this makes it easier answering doesn’t it?)

N/A

5. What scares you?

LIFE. don’t want to sound grumpy or anything like that , but Life does scare me especially with the way things are , the way people are. I sometimes feel I was born too late, should have been born 40 -50 years earlier when people were at least not so much of hypocrites , as they are now.

6. What are the best and worst things about blogging?

Well the best thing is meeting so many people, knowing so many, even if we have not met personally it is a good sense or feeling to know that someone somewhere is thinking of you , or is worried. Like I found out when i was off blogging so many beautiful people asking If I am OK or not.

The worst thing that I feel is this hypocrisy among bloggers , this selfish attitude of a few , this you scratch my back I will scratch yours attitude. People like me get sucked into a false sense of relationship that oh the person on the other side is genuine but alas it does not turn out that way.

7. What was the last blog you looked at?

The last blog I visited was a lovely blog written by Beloo Mam

8. If you could change one thing about yourself what would it be?

Not be an Idiot any more…:)

9.If I want to read only one blog post from your blog, which post should I read?

Oh no, I don’t think I write that well that I  can recommend any of my posts, rather it is the other way round I should be thanking all the lovely people who come over to this blog and spend their precious time reading what I write.

So Thank you Everyone.

10.Tell us something about the person who tagged you.

What can I say THIS PERSON IS THE BEST.. she thought me worth enough of passing an AWARD. Definitely the BEST PERSON IN THE WORLD and a very good blogger too.

11. What is the one question that I should be asking you, instead of all of the above?

Oh boy, Now this has got me thinking. What is it that I want to be asked….

hmmmmmmmmm

mmmmmmmmmmmmm

Well I guess the best question we can ask another human being is , Hello How are you doing..

It goes a long way, a simple question.

 

I think its my face or just me that gets this reaction from people.. So there is this new App called #shpock. Its like Ebay where you can advertise unwanted stuff , people can bid for it and then you sell or buy.

But unlike #Ebay this one does not have any safety nets so dodgy people get to rip one-off, I had a similar experience where by a IPAD was advertised for some Amount, I was interested in getting one so I offered a Price of £275/-  if I get it fine if not then also it was fine as I am not that desperate to buy one.

The seller seemed to be genuine but I had been stupid enough to not Read the Reviews , there were just a couple at that time which were not good, Anyway I get a reply from this person to message them on a Phone number 07576560137, so I did, I offered to pick up the item myself , but the person was adamant to get it posted, Still I did not think this could be a scam.

I got a Message that she is ready and accepted my offer AND then the drama started about how to pay for the item, I did not want to pay in advance as I had no clue who this person was and she was adamant on posting, She asked me if she can post , I gave my answer that if she can trust then yeah go ahead post it to me and I will transfer the money the moment I got the item.

She then came with the idea that Half the money first and half on receipt, I was still not happy So I offered to pay £50/- as advance and the rest on receiving the item.  I had a reason that is she was willing to trust me for £225/- then she would be a genuine person, But the clever she had different ideas (to her £50 was better than £0).. She readily agreed to it and I don’t know why I just did not give it a single thought that all this time , This person had not even asked me the address she was going to sent the Item to, I am such a DUMB idiot.

I then transferred 50 pounds to the given account number , She promised to post the item the next day it was only about a few hours later that my mind WOKE up like a TUBE LIGHT.. how is she going to send, she has not got my address:)  that’s when I texted her , and since then NO replies from her and it seems she has blocked me on whatsapp, I tried calling the number but the calls never went through.

Now almost after a month I could see activity on her profile and she is back to the same plan, putting stuff for sale and then asking people to Transfer the money as she will only post, People are saying they can pick up but NO she will only post, wants the money in advance. I wrote a lot of messages on here Time line to Refund the money.. Even wrote that this person is a CHEAT and wont send the item, But cleverly she has deleted all the messages.

To make matters WORSE if you go the #SHPOCK help on the App it has FAQ’s on everything BUT if you are duped. So the site is happy to see people get ripped off as long as the Site is working ,  at least on #Ebay one is safe via #paypal and if things go wrong then money is refunded, Although I have been in Communication with them and They are trying to help.

This whole episode has left me so angry I mean everyone is out there willing to dupe you, no thoughts are given as to how hard it is to earn money Or maybe I am a born sucker,  this person sent a text to me saying her GrandDad had passed away and I was so concerned , I am offering my condolences to her, Also saying that its OK,  she should go and take care of all that is going on in her life, and when she is back I can come and pick up the item, I mean people can even use the Death of a family member (that is if it was genuine) to their own benefit.

I am such a RETARD..

Putting on snapshots of the communication I had with this person and You can see what a PLONKER I AM  :) I feel disgusted with myself.

WhatsApp Communication:)

 

Sadly Since it was a wire transfer and with my own accord the Bank can’t do anything, I have written to them but they have not had any replies from the Account into which I have paid the money, I think the person has actually stolen someone card and using it , that is why she was so desperate for me to put the money right away, so she can withdraw.

Strangely enough I did get a message from another user saying the same about stolen card but till then the damage had been done

I did Get an Email from #Shpock and Later on a Message on Twitter saying they have Blocked the account ,  but that I have to see, I will put it up next post…

Ah well you learn something new everyday and I learnt what a DORK I am ..:)

So if anyone is using this APP please be aware of the Scamsters especially near by the Post code of NN18  – CORBY area.
