Humour with Strangers

Recently, I was in the queue at the cash counter. There was this guy with a fairly neat beard, holding a Philips trimmer. 

I tapped him on the shoulder and said, "you have done well" and pointed to his purchase. His eyes lit up and he said, "Oh! Is it good? Do you use it too?" before he had seen my practically bald head and clean shaven chin.

I smiled and pointed to my t-shirt that carried the Philips logo and said, "I work for Philips". 

We both had a good laugh.


Last Sunday, my son M wanted to eat chaat. When we were at the self-service counter a gentleman came to the counter and ordered a bhel puri. But the way he said it was bel. (ಬೇಲ್ ಕೊಡಿ)

I told him, "If you want bail, you should go to the court, not a chaat shop!"

Fortunately he had a good sense of humour. He guffawed and told his wife too and we all had a good laugh.
