Today I went out shopping for a bean bag. Always wanted to have one...ever since one of my friends got one in his room during our college days. Used to love sitting on his bag whenever I was over at his place. Now I'm gonna have my own...and its an XXL one at that!

So I'm in the shop deciding on the color of my new piece of furniture...and this guy is talking to the salesman next to me. Here's the conversation they had while I eavesdropped.

Customer: "How much do the beans cost?"

Salesman: (Showing him the foam) "They come free with the bag when you buy it."

Customer: "What if I want to fill my bag with actual beans?"

Salesman: "Yes sir, I assure you the foam we use is the actual filling that all branded companies use in their bags."

Customer: "No, I mean what about real beans?"

Salesman: "Sir, there is no such thing as 'real' beans...These are as real as they come."

Customer: "And if I want to fill my bag with real beans, How much will it cost me?"

Salesman: (Realizing that this doofus is talking about coffee beans) "Sir, filling a bag this size with 'real' beans would be too expensive!!"


I had to go outside the shop to catch my breath!

Its 11:50pm and I'm still in the office. Im coding for someone else's defect after having completed my work for the day. Just realised that the some more coding changes are required and I might have to stay on for some more time before leaving for home. Thats not all...I've come to work on my bike and its raining outside. So its a 20 km ride back home in the cold and rain only to come back early tomorrow morning and join the rat race once you think Im frustrated??
