This is part of a new series I am starting.
‘Have you ever encountered?’ deals with funny/strange/thought-provoking people/situations we encounter in our day-to-day existence.
If any of you have any more scenarios to contribute, please do leave a comment. And I will definitely try to add your personal encounter in my next post in this series. So read on…
1. Remember the time when our generation had just discovered emails and all of us excitedly created our first email addresses? Most of us didn’t think of funky email ids then. It was the usual John_Smith@hotmail.com. But for those people whose names were just too common, they resorted to adding their age or year of birth at the end of their names. So we ended up having JohnSmith_83@hotmail.com or JohnSmith_17@hotmail.com in our address books. Easy way to guess someone’s age. Very Sherlockian of me wouldn’t you say? 😀
2. How many of us download and install softwares? All of us. And how many of us actually read through the license agreements before we click Install or Begin. None of us. For all we know, we might be clicking Yes to an agreement which says we need to donate 2 kidneys and 10,000 dollars to someone!
3. Ok, what’s the deal with the so-called 5-minute recipes? Isn’t that a mythical concept? It takes me 5 minutes alone to set up all the ingredients on my kitchen counter. So where’s the time for mixing, smashing, popping into oven, etc? The only exception to this farce is instant noodles. And thank God for that.
Author’s Note : I have a Facebook fan page which is starting to show signs of dehydration in terms of fan count. So if any of my kind readers would do me the favour of going and liking my page, ‘ppreciate it a lot!
