WTF Moment of the Week

One of my colleagues at work, A, threw a small party for the team in the cafeteria today. She’d ordered lunch from outside and it was delivered by a guy on his bicycle. After he’d unloaded the food from the bicycle, she paid him. He asked for extra money stating “rickshaw fare” as the reason. All of us could see that he had come on a bicycle, so this request seemed out of place to say the least.

However, A felt that it would be simpler to pay him than to argue about it. Besides, he could have come by an auto-rickshaw if he wanted, but had chosen to make the effort of cycling so as to save a little money. It seemed okay.

She wasn’t sure how much to pay him though. So she asked him, “How much is the fare from the caterers to here?”

His reply?

“I don’t know! I came by cycle now, didn’t I?”

These are times when you really aren’t sure just how loudly you are supposed to laugh.
