things people say….

How many times have you doubted your own ears and wanted to ask the other person ,’Did you really say what I just heard?’
Okay don’t start counting on me,I know it must have happened quite a lot many times. Just wanted to share a few of mine. I know it shall sound hilarious here but when it happens, you just wish you hadn’t been there or had the power to vaporize the one who just said what he/she did.
Well, wishful thinking! All you can do mostly is fret…so here goes!
