Here’s a conversation that took place at college today. I was waiting for my turn to visit the Dean and a stranger [in his early 30’s] occupied the seat beside me.
Stranger: Boss, hello…
Stranger: [Shows a form to me, pointing at a word with his index finger]: Is this rite? How many ‘S’s should be there? One or Two?
K: [Looking at misspelled “Bussiness”]: Only one ‘S’.
Stranger: Hmm. Thought So. Thank you.
K: You’re welcome.
Stranger: You are a student of this college?
K: (DARN!! 😐 )
K: No, I graduated from this college in 2003.
Stranger: Oh 🙂
[Dean signals me to join him in his cabin. The stranger accompanies]
Dean: (introducing me to stranger) K, meet <stranger> from Singapore. He runs his own big business in Singapore.
K: Oh, really? Interesting!
