Why I hate customer Care

Everyone hates customer care.Those pesky people who call you at the most inappropriate time and keep blabbering in you ear about some product or a new scheme. Most of the time I politely shut them off but today afternoon they really annoyed me.
I was blissfully texting my hot neighbour, who was replying to me at the same speed and I was in heaven when this idiotic person from DishTV decides to call me a chat about the new connection I had ordered. Since it was something relevant, i listened to him jabber on and on about the new schemes and the details on my form and all assorted crap while my phone buzzed repeatedly indicating that new messages were streaming in regularly.
I was running out of patience when the nerve of the man! he decided to put me on hold while he went to get more "details about the package I was buying". Arrgh!!! My patience was zapped up and I was praying that my neighbour doesn't think i was blowing him off.
So after an hour of pure telephonic torture, I returned to check the messages on my cell, which were plenty but my neighbour was now missing.Probably off somewhere.
So here I was, back in my Single world all thanks to the great DishTV customer person who had informed me that he would call me up again tomorrow to let me know more details.
I can't wait.NOT.

A long long time

After a hiatus of...a very long time, thanks primarily to my fifth semester, I am back!
Yesterday was the last theory exam and deviating from tradition, where I generally rush back home at the first moment, I decided to go out with my girls.
We had a whole girlie evening planned with haircuts and beauty salons and as we stepped into the Jawed Habib's  haircut box(that's what it looked like!) we were met with a large crowd.
Three of us decided to go for it with me and sancho going in first. The hair cutter(because i don't know what they are called!) was decent enough(atleast mine was)while Sancho's decided to flirt with her and test her knowledge on different haircuts!
We window shopped, waited for Su to finish her burger, grouped over a single box of Hot Garlic noodles and walked till the metro station.
It was great to have 10-10 with us which was a complete surprise. And the whole time, in the metro, on the road, in the mall, we talked and laughed. A start to a great holiday where I have decided not to run away from Delhi and instead revel in the chilly wintry mist of Delhi.
Next on the itinerary: Multiple piercings on the 6th!
