Overheard conversations, or better say EAVESDROPPING!

Eavesdropping is one of my favorite hobbies, I tend to do it everyday. So here are some snippets from the conversations I overheard one day while I was on my way to my aunt’s house.

I overheard two rag picking kids fighting over a worn out pair of shoes thrown at the garbage bin in my locality. And here is what I heard:

“It’s mine, I saw it first”
“So what? I took it first, so it’s mine”

Strolling along some more distance I overheard a teen talking over phone to her lover, perhaps.

“You know na baby, how much I love you. So why are you doing this to me? Please don’t breakup. Let’s talk about this”

Travelling along some more length of the path, I came across a fat middle aged lady trying to bargain with the vegetable vendor.

“Bhaiya, how much for the Onions?
“Only ₹30 a kilo, Madam”
“How much will it cost for 3 kilos?”  asked the fat lady intending for a discount, though the cost for 3 kilos was obvious.
“Madam, you can take it for ₹85”
“But bhaiya, other vendors are offering cheaper price”
“Madam, I can give it to you for only 82, and not less than that because there would be no margin profit left for me if I offer more discount.”
“Okay, and how much for these Potatoes?”

I walked past the place and after advancing some more steps I found some old men smoking hookahs and having their  conversations, which goes like:

“These days the society has changed a lot. Isn’t it? Nowadays people don’t participate in social gatherings, rather they try to socialize behind mobile screens. God knows what they find interesting there!”

And others just nodded their head in affirmation.
