Sorry, but I need to vent! So I went to Mustafa Centre just now to get some stuff. As I was looking about, I noticed this Indian lady looking at me for quite some time. I didn’t think too much about it and I moved to the next aisle. And guess what? She followed me there and again she was staring at me! So wondering what could be her problem, I just went about picking my items.
As I headed to the checkout line, that same very lady was ahead of me in the queue. Noticing that I was behind her, she turned around to stare at me again. In order to avoid the awkwardness, I took out my phone and fiddled with it. As I was doing so, she said in Tamil, “I am sorry for staring at you, but you look just like my son who passed away recently.” I felt really sorry for her and uttered some words of condolence. She said thanks and if I could do her a favour.
I asked her what it was. She said in Tamil, “I know it’s weird and understand if you don’t want to, but can you give me a hug and say bye Amma to me?” Not thinking too much about it, I did as requested. She gave me a smile, said thanks and she left. So the cashier scans my items and the total comes to a $136!! I knew something wasn’t right, because the items I bought would have only amounted to about $40.
The cashier then tells me that my mom told me to include some of her items to my bill. I told the cashier that lady was definitely not my mom! The cashier, pointed out to the fact that I just hugged her and call her mom. Frustrated, I left my things there, and I ran out looking for that lady! I saw her hopping into her bike. I got to her just as she was putting her leg in, and I started pulling her leg…just like I’m pulling yours right now!Hahahaha have a good weekend all!
