Communication boom

Today on my way to work, I saw a cart puller.Nothing unusual about it...till I noticed something else...
He was pulling his cart and talking on the mobile...quite possible...
And he was telling someone that he has sent me the information over email and he should check it and get back to him.
Picture this... a very busy market place with vegetable vendors pulling their carts and then this conversation...
I was awestruck!

Crazy Network

This morning my mobile started misbehaving.I could receive calls and make calls but
The problem was ...I could hear the person i called ...but no one could hear me:(
I tried calling different people from different rooms, inside the house,outside the house but nothing changed. There was full network but I was unable to talk to anyone.
I decided to do the obvious. Log in my problem with the mobile operator.I called their helpline and patiently went through some of the automated recorded messages and then I was connect to the live operator who said hello and asked me for my details.
I reciprocated and started giving my mobile no etc...but there was silence. There was a pause and the guy repeated his greeting again and I started trying my level best to reach him in my loudest and clearest voice possible...
Very politely while trying to control his anger, he said that since no one is bothering to speak up, he was ending the call. He thought it was a crank call!!!
I felt stupid, frustrated, helpless, disgusted...all at the same time. I did not have access to another phone and I just did not know what to do next:(

Miraculously, the phone started functioning fine after a couple of hours!!!

My very first post....

Today I could not remember the name of the manager who used to manage a Paying Guest house in B'lore , where i stayed for a couple of months.The obvious thing for me these days is to quickly search in google:) I usually find almost "Anything under the Sun" out there. I realized for some things we still have to depend on our good old memory or at least one real person to find this kind of info:(
