This one goes out to all those dumbf***s (male, obviously) who think it’s damn cute to call you after a long long time and say: Guess who? I mean I just got the call and since I couldn’t fake the excitement or have the patience to play the guessing game, I hung up and didn’t take the call!
Haven’t you all heard this before?
I really don’t mind playing dumb if it’s a woman on the other end cuz at the end of the day, for she might be some hot babe from the past I could now have some luck with. You know I could pretend that a telephone is actually a television and start guessing names with no luck and later try and sound surprised and say: Hey, what a pleasant surprise… how aaaaaare you? Looooong time! It’s soooooo wonderful to hear you again!
But Men? Huh? Guys, come on, if you really know me, you’d know I’m not the kind who gets excited about mysterious young male callers. If we haven’t been in touch, it’s cuz I don’t really want to, dude, or you maybe you really don’t. Then, what’s all this sudden new found sense of friendship about?
With guys, what I really want to say when I hear that trying-to-be-cute and mysterious voice saying “Guezzzz Whoooo?” is:
“My ass. Cuz that is what makes noise like what I’m hearing right now. So if you want to stop sounding like my ass, identify yourself now.”
Oh, I just got the call again.
It was my ol’ Prof! Ooops!
The last line, of course, was fiction cuz this story needed a punchline! He he!
Machi, you know what is worse than a “do you recognise me” call?
Ans: Meeting a person whose ugly face you recognise but whose name you don’t remember. It keeps happening to me all the time. 😉
oh oh, somebody caught you in the wrong moment I guess.

Mysterious voice says: “Guezzzz Whoooo?” 🙂
True n most of them dont realize we meet at least two new people everyday on an average… somedays, its like a dozen intros… which is why i prefer not to be introduced and lie low… i walk in late and walk out early most days…
nice blog u have there! just left a msg!
And dear anon,
is that a male voice or female voice?
add to this ppl who say “enna nyaabgam illaya..unaku 3 vayasappo naan dhaan unna dhinamum parkukku thookittu poven…enga veetla vandhu dhenamum arun-oda sanda poduviye… enga arun paavum…unkitta evvalavu adi vaangi irukaan….nyaabagam illa?”….man, i get this all the time…& i hate it..
Hello,came here from u r other blog”thatfourletterword”, left a comment there, dont know whatelse to say, keep going.
Hey, don’t I know some joker who called and said, “Hey, don’t you remember me? Your past will catch up with you,” and stuff… Well, thank God I didn’t get mad 😉
I totally feel wat u’re sayin! 🙂 If they werent really older than u, the middle finger technique wouldve worked!
Thanks so much for that comment! Im glad u dint edit it! Totally agree with u… And thanks again for calling it sensitive… maybe i just was extra careful in making sure i don’t portray any of the characters in bad light cuz i was afraid of sounding like the loser in the story i guess! he he!
You got me there man!!
Those who are wondering what was that comment about, well… it so happens that yours truly called Feroze in Bangalore from my number… but it wasnt supposed to be a cute call… it was a threatening call… first, I sent him spooky msgs (without realising it was going to his reliance landline) and then finally when he called, did the guess who routine but a lil menacingly… in fact after he guessed the wrong name, I played along and entertained the wrong conversation!
You really got even here, Feroze!
Oooops! lol! *Suderman shakes his head*
Good to see u here! 😀
Does this list of callers also include .. “Main Atal Behari Vajpayee Bol Raha Hoon” ??
and lately airtels “Hi , I’m Shah Rukh Khan…” I would rather hear Elie Nastase cursing someone .. or they could have some tam here…?
