Test this theory if you are in your mid-thirties / forties f you reply “Temporary” their smile will drop into a dismayed look but will pop up again into a fake hopeful smile when they ask you using your last name “____ sahab kaisay hain?” (as in is your old man still alive, and if so is he sane and able to move around on a stretcher / wheelchair or has an ambulance where he may be dragged through the gutters to cast that damn vote that this scoundrel is trying to bag) Should you say that you buried your father 3 years ago and never saw this Johnny at the funeral where the Biryani was free he will leave you with a big FAH-Q! (shout the abbreviation out as a single word and you have your answer)
- Has the person been in touch with you as a “Fraand” throughout the year?
- Has the person remembered you at other times of the year when it did not benefit him in anyway shape or form?
- Is the person asking for the vote bitching about his opponent to make himself look good?
- If he is so then is it about club issues or the fact that his childs driver is having an affair with the complainants maasi? (or any other ridiculous non-relevant matter to the club you can think of)
- Lastly is your self-respect and dignity that cheap that you will settle down for what this clown is offering in the form of the price tag he is putting on the value of his friendship with you?
