Life's like that !!

Last weekend was great,asusual getting around the city with my friends for the Nth time..It was a saturday night and we were heading for home.Unfortunately,one of my friends got hurt in his leg and was limping while walking. We were in a hurry to catch a train ,so he put his hands across my shoulders and were walking towards the platform...Suddenly,I was taken aback for a moment when i overheard this statement from a lady behind us......She quipped......."Saturday night...Chillout young men"....
.............................................
In this city,its quite common to see people belonging to various ethnic background being employed in many of the business establishments and shopping malls.A few days back,i was checking garment accessories in mens section,and a lady (customer) walked to me and asked if the size fits her ??..What do i say ?? Probably she mistook me as a sales person !! IS IT JUST ME ??

Just read about this in todays newspaper !! Take a look !!

Reminds me of the major difference i found between India and the US.
In india people expect gals to stay friends only with gals, still a big issue if a gal has too many friends frm the other gender. Here it is just the opposite.

Abt the lady at the mall, guess she was tryin to talk to you and 'as always' u blew it :)) jus kidding..

i read about overhead in newyork before - hillarious stuff ;))

errr I think it was an honest mistake. I've walked into stores and done that to people or had that done to me. U must have not had the "I'm shopping look" ;p

Second One --It has happened a few times to me in retail stores... I have made mistakes of approaching genuine customers with such questions also...
