3 minutes talk with a stranger

Let me tell you a story.
This happened on Saturday(25th June 2022).
I was traveling to go see a beach.
I was on the way in an auto. (see pic below)

Auto Rickshaw in India. No copyrights.

And a stranger boarded it.
He was looking like an 18-20-year-old kid. With a lot of tattoos.

It was just him and me apart from the driver.

He turned towards me and said, “I was running a partnership firm where we used to take 10000 INR from people and return 16000 INR in 2 months.”
I simply nodded.


He then continued “I have left that firm because all the hard work was done by me and others were just using me to become rich.”
I smiled and nodded.


He then asked, “Would you like to invest 10000 INR and get 16000 INR in 2 months?”
I said “No. Thank you.”


He said “Why not? It’s a good deal. This is quick money.”
I said “No. Thank you.”


He was surprised and asked, “Don’t you trust your younger brother?”
I said “No.”


He asked again, “Would you be willing to help?”
I asked “Whom?”


He said “Me obviously. Would you give me 250 INR?”
I said “Nope.”


He said shockingly, “Are you sure?”
I said, “Yes, I am sure.”

He then sat quietly for a minute with disbelief in his eyes that someone is not being lured by becoming rich faster. He asked the auto driver to stop and he got down.
Then he argued with the driver about the fare that he charged for 3 minutes trip.

P.S.: There’s no easy money-making trick except for Vegas casinos 😀 How are you, guys? Today’s song pick is Let me go by Hailee Steinfeld. I will try to add more #travelStories posts.
