Quirky characters


I entered my office scratching my left palm.
“What happened?” asked my senior colleague.
“Just itching,” I replied.
“Itching on the left palm indicates you will get money,” he predicted, adding, “throw a party once you get the money.”
I wish the prediction came true. It’s already a week.
There are many who still hold on to strange beliefs.
One friend used to sit immediately if someone called him by his name from behind. A friend from Pakistan mentioned about an eccentric doctor who used to whitewash his clinic every day. Another person had the weird habit of cleaning apple with a tooth brush before eating.
Once I met a stranger and we shook hands.
He said, “Your hands are cold. That means you have a warm heart.”
I did not tell him I had just returned from an ice-cold air-conditioned room.

  7. Ha!ha! I am one of those quirky people except that I keep my quirks to myself and think a lot of times before verbalizing it out :) I decide what a person is based on their face and handwriting :P It takes me actually 5 minutes to form an opinion of someone and till date, I am glad to say my instincts have been never wrong :D

  8. Whitewashing his clinic everyday? Height of superstition!

    I have heard about the first one! Left eye twitch - good, right eye twitch - bad! These things should be taken lightly!
