A Day At The Movie

A popular movie theater in Chennai. Famous movie. House Full. Ashok and his wife Akila had already purchased a first class ticket at a cost of Rs.300 each. Saket Raman and his wife Sangeetha stood in the long line and purchased lower level tickets at Rs.70 each.

Intermission. These two couples meet in the coffee counter. Akila and Sangeetha were college mates. They introduced their husbands. Ashok bought the coffee for all four. They go back to their seats.

Movie ends. The couples say good bye to each other with a promise of meeting for lunch sometime.

Ashok and Akila are walking towards the bus stop. Akila tells Ashok: At last we were able to save some money and see a movie just like rich people. I am so happy today.

Saket and Sangeetha are walking towards their Mercedes Benz. Their driver was waiting to open the car door. Sangeetha tells Saket: At last we were able to see a movie just like ordinary folks. I am tired of this high society rich people stuff. I am so happy today.

  5. wooo nice. interesting. very cute post/story indeed. I am still smiling.
    OK to clear a few facts. Am definitely not high and mighty. Though I do not reply to each comment under my own comment section, but I rather go to a person's blog, who has commented and leave a personal note there. Because many a times people do not come back to recheck the answers written under their comment. This way they get it personally. So I hope you do not get me wrong.

  6. It is nice as both experienced what both wanted to experience.
    I am also like Kiran Bajaj Sawhney, I also like to go to a person's blog and leave a comment there instead of leaving a reply in my own blog. Somehow it makes more sense to me.
    Only in Blogspot, I noticed this strange habit of leaving replies in their own blogs.

  13. Thanks for your comments Kiran. I am glad you liked this post and still smiling.

    No No. I did not get you wrong. In some way you are acknowledging someone's comments. That is fine. I was talking about people who never acknowledge comments in any form.
