Why??? Why???

Why is it that every time I try not to make a fool of myself I end up looking like a bigger fool?

The otherday I got in the lift and another guy followed me in, we had to go the ground floor, I pressed '0' but didn't do it hard enough. The lift went down and then up again before it finally reached the ground floor. It was so damn embarrassing, people who took the stairs reached earlier than we did. I just hid my face and vowed to press the freaking lift buttons harder next time.

Yesterday, again its just the both of us in the lift. Same guy. Same situation. Both have to go to the ground floor. I remember my vow. I put all efforts in pressing the button. The lift shows no signs of budging, so I say "These buttons don't work" and curse the thing. He doesn't say a word, presses '0' and then says "we are in fourth floor". I was pressing '4' all the while! Argh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

He probably thinks I am an imbecile or something. Why? God why? Why do I have these 'Bridget Jones moments' so often? Please give me the strength to walk up and down the stairs 'cause I am never getting into a lift again.

kanags said...

agree with Arunz...i think u have a crush on that guy. its a classical case of brain malfunction when you are in the vicinity of the person whom you have a crush on..:)

Abdul Bijur V.A. said...

lol !! and blogging about it is a way to let that guy know? .. very sly i wud say! :-D

green said...

Don't worry it happens with most of us, pressing the same floor button. The idea is not to brood on these things.

I agree with the above people, something with the guy :p

Once I got in the 333 bus in Majestic and asked the driver " will it go to Majestic " in place of asking for Kodihalli.

so it happens..

Shradha said...

I DON'T HAVE A CRUSH ON HIM!!!
I think u guys watch too many hindi movies.

Arun, Akka?? I prefer aunty any day! Nanu avanige mathadakke chance kodalla, lift alli kale idalla. :p

Abdul, He doesn't know I blog. :p

Kanags, My brain was malfunctioning alright but tht happens vry often to me. It happens in the vicinity of my PLs and PMs at times. Doesnt mean I hav a crush on them too. :p

Shradha said...

Green, Ah, tht happens to me too, I had to get down in Indian Express stop once and I asked ticket for 'Times of India'. :))

Do I know u?

Abdul Bijur V.A. said...

perhaps he gets the vibes from the lift and then goes to his place and googles for "Shradha + PETA + Dog" and reaches your blog ... :-D :-D

rather u were hoping that wud happen ... :-D

Shradha said...

Shradha+PETA+Dog doesnt lead to my page. Shradha+Dhoni does. I should let him know I like Dhoni...But waitttttttttttttt I DONT HAVE A CRUSH ON HIM!!!

If Mr Lift guy, u did google and U r reading this now, I just want u to know I am not a dork. See Green's comment. It happens.

Abdul Bijur V.A. said...

Indian Express, Times of India ?? Where in Bangalore ? When did they come up ? sure about Bangalore and not about Delhi, right, ITO crossing ?

No, I don't think you know me now, but next time I am on Indian Express I will let you know. Last time I was on 26th Nov,lol.

Oracle said...

hmmm now why do i get this sneaking feeling that you are in love with a OTIS lift service technician???!! First time I am here, found your "attitude" alluring! Keep the good work going

Shradha said...

Green, There is this Indian Express building near infantry road..and the stop is called 'express' or 'Indian express'. I confused it with another newspaper :))

Shradha said...

Oracle, heheh...no no..not the lift technician, infact I dont have a crush on anybody. phew! How many times have I made tht statement today? I wish he was a technician though, that way I would'nt have to press the bl**dy buttons.

Alluring? really? Keep visiting :)

~RAUL~ said...

I know I know...the mystery behind all this...
1) The lift mechanic has a HUGE crush on shradha...
2) He programs the lift so that whenever shradha comes inside, the lift malfunctions
3) He keeps a close eye on her. As soon as she is about to enter the lift he jumps in the lift from the small door on the lift ceiling.
4) He changes into something good and meet shradha there.
5) Love is blossoming all around(the lift)

Do I need to explain any further ?

Shradha said...

Arun, 'biscuit hakbeda'? Yav kaladd slang appa adu? Nanu kele illa.
Neenu jaasti matadbead, ayata, 20 days alli nin maduve aaguthe nodu. Nim amma appa nu ready iddare. Bari hudugi huduk beku ashte. yava tarah beku helu, nan arrange madtini.:p :p

Shradha said...

And Arun, movie bekiddre madona. Neenu America alli jasti duddu madir bekalwa? Invest madu.

It won't be based on true story of course :)

Shradha said...

Rahul, You have a dirty mind...a very complicated one too..How in the world did u come up with tht???

I wonder wht kind of movies u have been watching!

Truman said...

It's okay. Don't think too much about it. :)
