â€œFirst, he must get rid of that bitch. Nasty bitchâ€¦â€ I looked back while I was window-shopping in a mall. It was an old woman, picking up certain items from a shelf. On seeing me, she said apologetically, â€œsorry. I was talking to myselfâ€. I just smiled and focused on window shopping! But she had not finished. â€œThat bitch must be whipped. And that guy. He wonâ€™t buy me a pennyworthâ€¦ Butâ€¦â€ â€œOk ladyâ€, I whispered and left the place.
We come across such people now and then. It is sort of disease. Others also do itâ€¦ I mean, self-talking, but the only difference is that there are those who talk to themselves louder and those who do it mentally.
Though self-talking is quite common among petty shop keepers, the ones who talk louder, lose customers steadily but the diplomatic ones earn the good name of the demanding customersâ€¦ when they curse such customers, they put an artificial smile on their face!
For example, the former would unwittingly say, â€œafter all, he buys items worth 10 paiseâ€¦â€ the latter would say, â€œyes sir, itâ€™s a bit expensiveâ€¦would you try this?â€ [this will be followed by a mental curse!]
