Yesterday on the way home from office my driver was jubilantly recounting how he got a good deal out of bartering his old mobile set -with a dysfunctional battery- with an unsuspecting colleague. Then someone pointed out that the other mobile set had been twice submerged in water and would break down unpredictably. Reportedly, the other party to this grim trade is equally exhuberant at getting a good deal and fooling an unsuspecting colleague. It may have something to do with the utter absurdity of the tale, or with the way both parties were bent on fooling an unsuspecting party, or with the way the tales were narrated. Whatever the case, I had my spirits lifted for a while.
