While i was having my coffee break with my customer just now, my phone rang, the number seemed alien to me,anyway i picked up phone, "eugene here, who's that?" came the reply, " i am Andy here." and i was wondering Andy who? He said " Andy lah, your old friend"
I was really lost as i didnt know him but he claimed to be an old friend, could he really be my old friend for i dont know any old friends that i am not familiar with. So after much talking, i realized indeed he was my "old friend" the guy whom came to my office not more than 10 times .
So after much exhange of pleasantry like how have you been keeping, how is business from Andy, i just got the hunch that this guy would not be so kind to call me just to ask about my current condition.
I said to him bluntly, "So Andy, is there anything i can do for you? let get to the point,Andy" now the cat was really coming out from the bag. " Eugene, are you interested to do this business or not? the E***way, very good one, the company will pay for your shop rental and provide you with some stocks" blah blah blah.....to cut the story short, i told him i was not at all interested and i stayed elusive to his other questions and told him that i was with a friend, and i would call him if i were to be interested.
Really, i just hated it, i dont like so called friends calling me out of a sudden and pretending to be so concern of how i am doing as a pretext then corner me with their so call business proposals.
Q)when was the last time you got bugged my friend like Andy?
P/S : Keep in touch with friends, you just dont know when they will come in handy
