Today I was not feeling like eating anything but I felt like I needed a big ginger tea.
So I went on the ground floor in the IBM canteen and tried to order a double ginger tea.
“how much is a double ginger tea? ”
“How big is the double tea? ”
He shows me a paper cup smaller than a mug.
” here on the board the price Il 10, how big is the regular one? ”
He shows me paper cup that is half the previous one.
” is the big one the double of the small one? ”
He is not fully happy with that, but says Yes.
” so how much will be the price? ”
“fine. It is with no milk, is it? ” I ask two times.
He moves his head, pours the tea in a side and I can not see what he is doing, but he handles me something that is not transparent.
OK. 20 rupees for a tea that I have thrown away.
(note to self: Next time leave it on the counter).
