One of these days in pune, an incident happened that was weird sure, but something I would like to make a part of my blogey! So here I am narrating the experience, 1st hand :-P
I live in a massive house with many girls in many rooms. We are a group of seven girls of the same course and 3 of us, that is, Pooja, me, Rashmi share a room. Of which Pooja is my childhood friend and from my collg now, so we anyway share a nice rapport. Of Rashmi, well she talks less, is from Bhavan's [other collg] and well, not so known to me. But never-the-less, we gel well..
Pooja is the fun-loving ones. Has to give "vishesh tippani" on everything! Rashmi on the other hand is the mellow one. I donno which cateogary I fall under, so I shall refrain commenting on that :-P
The incident begins like..
Pooja had taken my phone to lissen to radio. Well, I was going to sleep in the afternoon for about an hour, so I didnt have a problem. Gave it to her and dozzed off. When I got up, I noticed that both Rashmi and Pooja were already studying. So, I thought prolly I forgot to put-up the alarm, asked for the phone back from pooja. She was in no mood for fun, she just turned back and DASH! my phone falls off from her bed onto the floor. No major physical damage, pooja shocked, scared to even touch the device.
Pooja: OH my god! now what?
Me: Lets see..
I pick up the device. It is switched off from the impact. I reset the battery and try switching it on. Meanwhile, both Rashmi and Pooja try figuring out possibilities of damage.
Me: sim card not dectecting.
Pooja: Darn! I have to buy you a new phone!
Me: Chill, It could've happened by anyone.
Rashmi: Now what?
Me: I dont know.
Meanwhile I try unsuccessfully to fix up the device. No luck!
Pooja: I have to buy you a new sim card??
Rashmi: for how much will you get a new sim card for?
Me: Chill people, just keep the thing aside for a couplea hours, lets see what happens..
Pooja: Now, what will you do?
Me: Call my parents from your phone and ask them to call there. For others, anyway I am going home in 3-4 days. Then I will try get the device fixed. Or best, buy a new phone..
Me: Is it a prank?
Me: You guys removing sim card and doing stuff to get me worked up??
Pooja: Why will we do that?
Me: No, just occured to me..
Pooja: Man, I feel so guilty! Is there nothing we can do??
Me: Gimme your phone. Lets try putting my sim in urz and urz in mine and detect the problem is in the phone or sim..
Pooja: with a frown I dunno. I have never opened my cell. It doesnt open.
I look at total amazement. I open the device up atleast thrice a day :-P
Me: Lets try
Me: Rashmi, how about trying the thing on your phone?
Rashmi: Please take care ok? You know how to do it?
She gives her phone and the sim cards are exchanged. Problem detected, sim card. Hers being detected in my phone. Then when I plan to exchange the sims back for her phone to be activated, pooja takes tensed walks around the room. When I am about to close her phone, Rashmi [cleanliness freak] notices her batter is very dirty :-
Rashmi: Is it OK if I wipe it up?
Me: Sure, your phone, do whatever you like.
Rashmi in full form, wipes the battery well with dry cloth while pooja passes nervous glances. I exchange the sim cards and Tan-tana!
My sim card starts working in my phone n hers stops in her phone. All of us are confused about the situation and both me and pooja take sighs of relief while Rashmi is all panicked!
Rashmi: I should'nt have cleaned it so well!!
Me: That is not the problem...wonder what the jhol is....
Pooja pickes up her own phone and there! even her sim card is deactivated! Ha ha!! We kept looking at our faces, I burst out laughing and pooja didn't know what to do.
Me: God knows who the real culprits are :-P
Finally after 2 minutes of pondering, we come to a conclusion that the vodafone tower must have had some technical problems and as we drew to this conclusion, all our phones come back to life!
Well, the look on pooja's and later Rashmi's face was the best part of it all! the incident lasted about an hour, but we laughed for another hour on it. If anyone doesn't find it amusing, I would understand! Just that this incident was first of its kind with me. For record, Vodafone in pune sucks!
Is hostle life always so amazing??
As many of us have had experiences, I need some more stories... he he...
Love my room-mates! This one dedicated to them.
To Pooja and Rashmi.
