Neighbourly chat

leave a comment »

Mr. Raheja narrating:
Jumped into the train this morning just as it was pulling out of the station, scrambled to find a seat and found Mr. Swamy, our neighbour from the 4th floor, sitting next to me.
“Good morning!” I wished him.
“Good morning!” he replied.
”Do you take this train every day?” I asked him.
“Yes,” he replied.
End of conversation.
We both then bend our heads and went off to sleep. I got off at my station 40 minutes later. He must have woken up at the last stop, an hour away from the starting point.
Mrs Raheja and Miss Raheja who were listening:
HaHa… HaHa… HaHa… I don’t believe this! HaHa… HaHa… HaHa…
Miss Raheja:
You men! When will you learn how to communicate?
Can you imagine what would have happened if it was Mrs Raheja who had bumped into Mrs Swamy?
They would have talked non-stop till Mrs Raheja had got off at her stop – and then promised to catch up again in the evening!
