I frequently travel in auto and I end up striking a conversation with them, sometimes hilarious, sometimes irritating and sometimes thought provoking. Penning down a few of them:
1. Bhaiya, why are you taking the longer route?
It is peak hour Madam, hence I am taking you through the short cuts, thereby saving your time.
2. Madam, can you please pay extra 20 bucks as I will be without passenger during the return?
Oh really! Will you pay me if you get a passenger during your return?
3 .Bhaiya, Shivajinagar chaloge?
Nahi madam, its too far…Dude, that’s why I need an auto.
4. Auto, auto, arey auto….
The auto driver waves me a good bye without even looking…
5. Bhaiya kitna hua?
Madam, Rs. 82 but please pay me Rs. 90 as I do not have the change. Round figure to banta hai madam!
What? round figure? Yeh lo Rs. 80 plus the change.
6. Sir, RT nagar?
Yes, but rasta malum hai aap ko? Lol!
7. Meter 1 and half lagega Madam?
It’s just 8.45 pm, bhaiya.
By the time u board the auto and I start, it will be 9.00 pm. Chalna kya?
8. Bhaiya Majestic chaloge (from J.p nagar)?
Madam bus no.2 and 215.
Wow! How generous of you!
9. Scenario: empty Auto at the auto stand:
Where in koromangla?
Wo kidar hai?
Christ college, big bazaar ….
Ha, wo malum hai, but nahi jayega
Waiting mein hai, madam!
10. Conversation in the auto:
Madam, are you working in IT Company.
Do you stay nearby? If yes, then I can drop you every day? My auto is just near the bus stop.
BTW I am on facebook. Can we be friends?
Stop, stop, roko auto…. Teri tho…
Ha Ha! I am sure you would have had a hearty laugh. Do share your experiences as well…..
