Conversation at a store today morning:
|Me||:||“I need a calculator.”|
|Me||:||“That Casio FX-100 MS. How much is it?”|
|Me||:||“How about the FX-991 MS?”|
|Shopkeeper||:||“Oh to China se aaya hai. Saste mein milega. Sirf do sau.”|
Opening the box, I found that the damn thing even had a sticker proudly quoting “200/-” on it. It looked exactly like an original Casio calculator, but you could smell the bad quality from a mile away. The least those Chinese could have done (if at all they were responsible for manufacturing this computing beast) was to ensure some decent quality. Small wonder then, “Copying is an art.”
On a side note, the calculator could do simple arithmetic problems such as 2 * 2 correct.
