Crazy Cabmate - True Story #6

Three Free Nights

Cabmate: "What are you doing this vacation?"

Me: "I'm going to Goa"

Cabmate: "Oh nice. Where will you be staying?"

Me: "Some shack"

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"

Me: "Sure"

Cabmate: "I'll take those 3 Free nights :)"

Me: "........"

Cabmate: "Ok? :)"

Me: "No. That's not possible"

Cabmate: "But don't say 'No' without even checking with the guys"
