All sorts make the world

I was talking to photo studio owner Salim about different kinds of people, when he narrated about a guy he knew.
This fellow had a habit of going close to things and reading aloud the names printed on them. For example, if he saw a sticker “Open” on the door, he would read aloud “Opennn.” If he sees an ointment lying on the floor, he would loudly read “Soframycinnn.”
This guy came with a group of friends to click a snap. Salim had lined up the guys for a group snap, gone back to his camera and was about to shoot, when he saw a dark image closing on the lens. Shocked, he lifted his face from the camera to see the guy covering the camera lens with his face and shouting, “Nikonnn.”
One guy I knew loved to sing, but with his eyes closed. One day, three of us cheered him with a “wow..,” for the first two lines and slowly sneaked away to the canteen. When we returned he blasted us saying, “You crooks. The boss screamed at me.”

  1. It was funny, but, more important is that you are very observant.

  6. lol...had a similar experience yesterday. This girl was next to me at the cookie stand (OK OK) and talked to the cookies as if they were little kids that needed to be remembered how bad they were...and then I observed her outside in the parking lot, running between cars and screaming: "I lost you, I lost you..." - shortly after I saw her driving away in her car, alone...

  9. Ah that's funny. The second thing, we too practiced some time, and I also was a victim of which. But, is the case of the first guy, true, or purely made of imagination?
    however a loud laugh for both the stories..
