So I got a call today about getting my laptop fixed. Missed the call and called the guy back. Then came the call from DELL from tech support which is apparently in India. You know that your company is the shit when your customer service reps are in another country and English is their second language.
So, I was trying to find out if it was the same guy i had initially spoken to and to whom I had been unneccessarily rude so that I could apologise when before I knew it, I was embroildered in a conversation of one of my guilty pleasures: BOLLYWOOD. I found myself talking for almost ten minutes with this guy whose name I don't know, swapping critics of films I had seen.
The next thing, the desi asks if he can log into my computer from India ( they can apparently do that so they can fix whatever is wrong). Idiot (me) too replied yes, thinking that since the initial conversation had begun about a fault with the computer, then that was what he was trying to get back to.
He then asks me if I had pictures of myself on my laptop.....ALARM!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I clumsily warded him off using the excuse that as a design student, most of the pictures on my laptop would be of my projects and scanned floor plans. This guy tells me that he will check me out on FACEBOOK.
So, guys, if you do not hear from me it is because I have been kidnapped and taken to Bangalore/Calcutta/New Delhi/ Mumbai or wherever the desi is residing.
Lesson: No unnecessary conversations to people you do not know. i guess I was uncharacteristically (hope that is the correct spelling) in need of a conversation.
Till next time, NAMASTE
