Shopping and Color blindness
Today morning, I was listening to Radio city. The RJ Vasanthi was asking the listeners, about shopping. And whoever called, Vasanthi was asking them what was the most essential thing for shopping. You know what were the responses? 'Patience', 'Bargaining Skills', 'Time Management(???)' etc. Till date I was thinking money is the thing that is required for shopping!!
RJ didnt stop there. She was referring to some places in chickpet and commercial street, which are good for shopping. I really pity the husbands of the wives who were listening to the show in the morning :-D
Shopping reminded me of my Pune days. In Pune my office was bang opposite 'Shoppers Stop'. There was this cafeteria there where they served delicious pasta and other stuff. Most of the days, I used to go there along with my friends for lunch. One day, my friend wanted to check on some pink tops. We went along with her to the ladies section. I found a nice pink top and asked her if she liked it. She turned looked at the top, and then shouted 'Is this Pink. You call this Pink? Are you color blind? This is baby pink'.
I was like 'Oh ok. Better to keep mouth shut'. I quietly asked to another friend wasnt that color pink. He also felt it was pink. Anyways, thats when I realised men are color blind when it comes to shopping. The extent to which women look for that RGB combination when it comes to dresses. Hmmmmm. Interesting when you are watching from a distance :-D
