PHONE MISERS 8

MOST OF US AVAIL THE PHONE FACILITY TODAY . THERE WERE DAYS WHEN PEOPLE DID NOT HAVE TELEPHONE IN THEIR HOUSE , SO THEY HAVE TO CALL EITHER FROM PUBLIC BOOTH OR FROM THEIR NEIGHBOUR”S OR RELATIVE”S HOUSE BUT BECAUSE OF THE INVENTION OF MOBILE PHONES MAJORITY OF PEOPLE HAVE A PHONE WITH THEM .IN FACT A LARGE NUMBER OF PEOPLE HAVE A MOBILE PHONE AS WELL AS LAND LINE PHONE CONNECTION BUT STILL MANY PEOPLE PREFER TO USE OTHERS TELEPHONE TO MAKE A CALL OR PREFER TO TALK ONLY WHEN SOME BODY ELSE MAKES A CALL. I HAVE COME ACROSS MANY PHONE MISERS . BELOW I AM SHARING WITH YOU MY OWM EXPREINCES WITH PHONE MISERS.

I HAVE SEEN SOME PEOPLE WHO ALWAYS ASK A ONE RS COIN FOR MAKING A CALL FROM THE PUBLIC BOOTH & THE PEOPLE WHO ARE NOT FAMILIAR WITH HE MENTALITY OF THE PERSON EASILY GIVE ONE RS COIN , THINKING THAT THE PERSON MUST BE IN URGENT NEED. IN THIS RELATION I AM SHARING WITH YOU ABOUT ONE OF MY CLASSMATES NISHRIEEN , WHO ALWAYS USE TO ASK ONE RS COIN TO MAKE A CALL & SHE USED TO SAY THAT SHE DOES NOT HAVE THE CHANGE RIGHT NOW . NISHREEN TOOK ONE RS FROM WHOLE CLASS & SHE NEVER RETURNED IT. SHE WAS SO HABITUAL THAT SHE EVEN ASKED ONE RS COIN TO TEACHERS & PEONS OF COLLEGE . WHEN THE WHOLE CLASS REALIZED THAT NISHREENN HAS A HABIT OF MAKING PHONE CALLS FROM OTHERS MONEY , WE STOPPED GIVING HER .

THERE IS STILL ANOTHER CLASS OF PHONE MISERS WHO FIRST ASK THE PERMISSION OF MAKING A CALL & ONCE THEY MAKE A CALL THEY ASK FOR THE PAYMENT OF THE CALL & WHEN THE OWNER OF THE TELEPHONE REFUSES TO TAKE ANY MONEY FOR THE CALL , THE PERSON THAN SMILINGLY ASK THAN CAN HE OR SHE MAKE ONE MORE CALL. THIS HAPPENED WITH ME ONE OF MY NEIGHBOURS ONCE CAME TO MY HOUSE TO MAKE A PHONE CALL , I SMILINGLY OFFERED MY MTNL PHONE . SHE MADE ONE CALL & THAN SHE ASKED ME THAT ” SHALL I PAY YOU FOR THE CALL ” , I REFUSED TO TAKE THE MONEY THAN SHE AGAIN PICKED THE TELEPHONE RECEIVER & MADE TWO MORE CALLS.

ONE MORE TYPE OF PHONE MISERS WORTH MENTIONING ARE THE PEOPLE WHO GIVE MISS CALLS. THEY JUST GIVE A MISS CALL & EXPECT THE PERSON TO CALL THEM BACK. THEY GIVE YOU ONE MISS CALL & EXPECT FROM YOU THAT YOU WILL CALL THEM BACK. PERSONALLY I HATE SUCH PEOPLE & I NEVER CALL BACK TO PEOPLE WHO GIVE ME A MISS CALL. USUALLY PEOPLE WITH THIS KIND OF MENTALITY SAY THAT THEY DO NOT HAVE MUCH BALANCE IN THEIR PHONE THEREFORE THEY HAVE GIVEN A MISS CALL. ** HERE I AM ONLY TALKING ABOUT THOSE INDIVIDUALS WHO REGULARLY GIVE MISS CALLS TO ALL THE PEOPLE THEY ARE ACQUINTED WITH .

THERE ARE SOME PEOPLE WHO CONVERSE ON PHONE ONLY WHEN SOME BODY ELSE CALLS THEM. IN THAT CASE THEY WILL CHAT FOR HOURS BUT IF IN URGENCY THEY HAVE TO MAKE A CALL , THEY WILL JUST TALK FOR A MINUTE ONLY . FOR SUCH PEOPLE I REMEMBER ONE HINDI PROVERB ” MUFFT KA CHANDAN GHIS MERE NANDAN “. SUCH PHONE MISERS WHEN MAKE A CALL FROM THEIR SIDE . THEY WILL TALK FOR A MINUTE & THAN DISCONNECT THE CALL , THEY THAN WAIT FOR THE OTHER PERSON TO CALL THEM BACK & WHEN THE OTHER INDIVIDUAL CALL THEM BACK THEY SAY…..” OH ! I DO NOT KNOW HOW THE PHONE GOT DISCONNECTED & I WAS TOO TRYING TO CALL YOU BACK “.

LAST BUT NOT LEAST THERE ARE PHONE MISERS WHO MAKE CALLS WHEN THEY GET SOME BODY ELSE”S MOBILE PHONE IN THEIR HAND. YES THERE ARE PEOPLE LIKE THAT. I HAVE ONE UNCLE IN DELHI , HE CALLS ONLY WHEN HE GETS SOMEBODY”S MOBILE PHONE IN HIS HAND. THEREFORE WHEN EVER HE CALLS US , WE COME TO KNOW THAT TODAY SOME BODY MUST HAVE A BAD DAY .I ALWAYS FEEL PITY FOR THE PERSON WHOSE MOBILE PHONE FALLS IN MY UNCLE”S HANDS.

YOU MIGHT TOO HAVE COME ACROSS PHONE MISERS IN YOUR LIFE. WE CAN TAG A PERSON AS ” PHONE MISER ” ONLY WHEN WE HAD SEVERAL EXPERIENCES IN WHICH THE PERSON TRIED TO SAVE HIS MONEY IN MAKING PHONE CALLS.PHONE MISERS MAY SPEND LAVISHLY ON OTHER THINGS BUT WILL NOT SPEND HIS OR HER MONEY ON MAKING PHONE CALLS. PHONE MISERS DO NOT CARE ABOUT WHAT OTHER PEOPLE THINK ABOUT THEM . IT IS VERY DIFFICULT TO CHANGE THE MENTALITY OF A PHONE MISER & IF THE PHONE MISER IS OUR FRIEND OR RELATIVE OR COLLEAGUE THAN WE CANNOT BE RUDE & WE JUST HAVE TO TOLERATE THEM SMILINGLY.
