Cabmate: "Shack? What's that? I stay only at 5-star hotels"
Me: "5-star hotels? On company expense? :P"
Cabmate: "Ya. So, what is a shack?"
Me: "A shack is very basic accommodation but it's usually right on the beach. Since it's the season, shacks will be expensive too"
Cabmate: "Oh? How much?"
Me: "Off-season shacks that cost 1,000 INR a night cost 4,000 INR a night in the season. But, I've managed to find an awesome place for 1,500 INR a night. The only thing is, they expect one to book for at least 14 nights in a row. And we are staying for 11 nights. So, we decided to pay for 3 extra nights"
Cabmate: "Link me to their website later"
I do that dutifully.
Two days later, he walks up to me in office and says "I need to talk to you"
Cabmate: "I'll take those 3 Free nights :)"
Cabmate: "Ok? :)"
Me: "No. That's not possible"
Cabmate: "But don't say 'No' without even checking with the guys"
