Coffee over Chat

Animals need leash; Indian need speed-breakers. Incidentally, in Bangalore speed-breakers are back-breakers - there are many and they are really humpy. If some authority rules that these need to be taken off the roads, next day I discover more of them.

In India many things are controlled. Drug prices as well. Yet, many critical drugs are sold at unaffordable prices. Guess what, alcohol prices are controlled in many states.

This morning a two-wheeler fellow, with his wife (presume) at the pillion, was shouting at a Wagon R driver. All this as both were moving, but much slower than the traffic. Presume, the two-wheeler guy was shouting because the Wagon R guy changed lanes. I also noticed slightly bulged triceps of this two-wheeler guy. In spite of the wife's jabbing him in the back to stop, he continued. Meanwhile, Wagon R guy gets a chance and speeds past. Two wheeler guy was yet unhappy; he also speeds to catch up with the guy. But well before that he finds his punctuation of the road divider. He seemed disappointed, but then immediately he does something which one would not expect him to do, as he had fought against lane changing. Without a moment's hesitation, he drives the bike across the road on to the right side (wrong side) and zooms past to his destination. Maybe, her (wife's) destination. I guess he was dropping the Missus to office or something. I guessed so because she was dressed relatively formally and this fellow was in his pyjamas. Such it goes.

No, I did not confuse about the order of the words. It was indeed coffee over chat, not the usual other way round, chat over a coffee. I called on an official in a client company (IT company). Having one coffee/tea too many is an occupational hazard for professionals on the sell side. The client asked my preference. Till that it was all normal and usual. He then opened some application on his PC (later he told it was a chat facility), and placed an order for coffee over it. I was suspect. Even when you order coffee over phone, it does not get served in time. Over chat, the coffee will come well after I was gone, I thought. Coffee was there in no time. IT being applied for such simple thing was quite interesting.
