You don't beleive it? Read on.
Juice-bar-attendant-boy: "Kounsa shake?"
Casual-IT-worker-guy: "Papaya Banana."
(thoughts of a mere mortal like me:
Papaya + Banana combination shake ? (yuck?)
1 Papaya and 1 Banana shake?)
But! The super correct interpratation of super sleuth Juice-bar-attendant boy?
"OK! So this guy wants Papaya Shake!"
But still the order is not precise and complete. So our super sleuth probes further,"Kitna mangta hai?"
Casual-IT-worker-guy replies,"Ek Do."
I am still trying to gather my mind reeling from the comfusion whether this guy wants Ek Papaya Shake or Do Papaya Shake. But our juice-bar-super-smarty? He super-smartly shouts the order to the guy inside the kitchen "Saab ko Ek Papaya Shake Do!"
Only then did I understand what the customer had said "Ek Do : Give One". Sheesh why could I not think of it! [ ;) ]
But then even the best can falter.
Today it happened.
While I was waiting for my 'Pineapple-juice-without-sugar' one fellow came in a rush.
"Chickoo. Late ho raha hai! Jaldi!"
What did they serve him? Chocolate shake!
