I got a phone call today...and here it is:
"Hello? Is that Waffy?"
Why is this person calling with such a serious tone? Did somebody die? I had seen the same number more than three times on my phone now...
"I am calling from "so and so" bags. You ordered a bag from us that you should have picked up by now"
"Oh yeah, but like I said to someone that called before, I am so busy this week, but I'll pick it up today "
"But you said you'd pick it up on the 31st"
Is she fucking kidding me? She actually thinks I'll feel bad cos I did not pick up a bag? She must be joking...and why does she sound like she is about to cry?
"Yeah, but my work...sometimes we have crisis situations so thats why I couldnt come, but I am free today so I'll be there"
"Yes, but yesterday, we were near to give it away"
Why is she prolonging this conversation? Does it look like I really care about a bag?
"If you don't come today, we will be forced to sell it "
HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA
"Just so you know"
"Yeah, of course! Ciao!"
People really take life way too seriously. Its only a bag. She could have sold it, whatever. I would have just ordered a new one or gone to another shop. I could care less. And to actually think she thought I would feel bad in anyway...its just a bag. Whatever.
P.S: It was not some "limited edition" bag, or "designer bag" or some sort of special bag. It was an ordinary bag that they had run out of the day I was in the store and I did not feel like buying anything else that day. They INSISTED that they could get that particular bag. I really did not care so I said they could go ahead. And its not some small fancy bag store that is run by a family that depends on it to eat their daily bread. It was just a normal store that sold bags...nothing special or interesting about it. I believe somebody just wants to feel a bit powerful. The almighty decider over bags. Its like when "gatemen" think they have some power over who goes in or out their "oga's" house.
