This is a conversation that took place between my hair dresser and me. This happened around 12.30 pm today. I had to put this into writing coz it really was some food for thought. His name is Vishnu and works at a salon in Chennai as a hair dresser.
Me- Vishnu .. how long is this process going to take ?
Vishnu- Three hours ma’am.
Me – Ok. Why don’t u have lunch in between .I’m hungry too.
Vishnu -No problem ma’am.
Me- Where do I buy Sc****f serum ?
Vishnu- It’s available at Page 3 or Naturals lounge.
Me- It’s not pronounced that way vishnu. It’s pronounced as l-o-u-n-g-e vishnu.
Vishnu- Sorry ma’am. BE third year discontinued, too much English I don’t know.
Me -BE? Why which stream ?why did you discontinue?
Vishnu – I studied BE ECE in Fomra Institute of Technology . Didn’t like ma’am. Too much pressure to study well. Studied diploma but that also wasn’t interesting but finished it.
Me- What did you do after that?
Vishnu- I worked in Wipro for four months as network engineer in server room. Trouble shooting and all.
Me- And ?
Vishnu- And i quit.
Vishnu-People are so stupid. If laptop dosent switch on they book a call. They wouldn’t have even switched on the main button.
Me- Ermm. ….ok ..that’s why you left ?
Vishnu- I didnt like IT job. Somehow wasn’t satisfying .
Me- But the salary here is less na ?
Vishnu- Ma’am, IT job not guaranteed after 35 years of age. They ll ask u to leave home.
Vishnu- But even if you’re jobless , you need to have a hair cut to attend a interview.
Me – *slow clap in my mind*
P.s-I type this as he dries my hair.
