Show me the Money, Honey

(Phone rings)

"Hello?"

"Miss Anamika?" the man enquires.

"Yes."

"You had placed an ad to sell your car?"

"Yes."

"My name is Honey. Can you describe the car?"

And so the conversation continues. I talk money. He talks less money. Finally we decide on having him come over to see the car. As I'm about to hang up, I say, "Well, alright then, thanks. Bye Honey." And in my head is this voice telling me how silly it sounds. Nevertheless, it has been said.

"Ermmm...Ma'am, my name is HaneeF".

----


A good friend advises me that if I call them all Honey they will surely buy my car.

Many people I told this to laughed at me for thinking his name was Honey. But I'm from Delhi, where plenty of self-respecting Punjabi men are called Honey, Lucky, Jolly and even Goldie! (And sometimes, they're called Sukhwinder, but that's no fun!)
