Well well well.. what do you do when you are sleeping and you get a call late night. Ummm.. I pick it up.
The person at the other end spoke in a very decent manner. He apologised for the late night call and told me it was about my job. For a second, I thought it was somebody from Infosys (I got placed there this February). He then told me that I needed to attend a meeting to secure the job. Ummm.. never heard of Infosys doing this before. He told me that the meeting was at Vani Mahal, T.Nagar. I asked him what the meeting was about. He then told me that it was about some online earning crap. (Tons of these crop up these days like that freaky MGinger or wateva!) I asked him which company he represented. He told me that explicit details would be provided at the meet point. I politely refused saying that it was exam time and I would not come. I asked him how he had got my number. He told me that Mr. Rakesh of Final year had passed on my number. I know this Rakesh guy. I called him up and told him that someone was mis-using his name. Rakesh was pretty irritated at that. I told the mystery caller to call back on May 31st. He asked if I had any preferred contact time. I told him to call at 2 AM (lol… Im gonna have fun tat day !)
Well.. if any of you wanna have fun with this character, please call him up at 9884443057.
Im seriously gonna call up this guy when I need entertainment… Im gonna drive him mad ! LOL.. Am I gonna have fun !
The second freaking call was obvious. It was about the same online money making racket. He was lame in making an impression on me. I just asked “How did u get my number?” He told me he got it from orkut ! Damn it ! I had set “Visible to all” against my phone number. Every Jack and Jill could see my number. I set it to “Friends of friends”.. thats better !
The third freaking call used to come from HDFC bank on my new land line. First 2 calls, I told him I was a non-earning student. That didn’t seem to enter his head. The third call I told him – “You be my Guardian and invest for me. One day I will go to America. That day I will repay you.” It was only then he realised that I am a student and let go of me. Phew !
These idiotic people… This money making business is real crap !
