“Nothing to fear… That Dhulki is with her beloved little daughter…”
“Puny or Kuni… Her mother-in-law wants her to be in family way as many times as possible!”
Just then a middle-aged man appeared with a couple of big bags but the above mentioned lady was talking to one of her friends over her mobile.
“Madam, I want 2kg of raw rice.”
She pointed her finger towards the ‘Big Shelf’ and resumed her mobile conversation –
He asked for something else and she now pointed to the left shelf… As he fumbled and asked for clarification, she confirmed, “yeah, middle…” Her one-word replies irritated him. He bought as many as 15 items but she hardly offered any help. Her answers were in her “mobile first” fashion!
I too had a couple of items which she picked up and tossed and I caught them without much trouble.
Meanwhile, the other customer was struggling to search for a couple of big bags and said, “Ma’am, Shall I put them here… I don’t have space in my big bag…” To which she quickly retorted, “Ok – or you go to dodda bedda… there may be enough space!”
Her husband appeared just then and scolded her but her reply was in her own style, “your mom is getting fatter and fatter – let us not waste money…” Her hubby said, “She wont come here to help you” and her answer was, “comna come, comenatti go!”
