'The Unwilling Somaiyaite'- WTF is WITH THESE PEOPLE???

Right...so this college happened to be Somaiya college...I had heard about it before, nothing bad really...

Unfortunately, right from day one, it was deplorable...

After the mandatory introduction session (you know how it goes)...the dude next to me strikes up a little conversation...which went a bit like this...

Dude: Hey, so you're name's *****, right?
Me: Yeah
Dude: So...going by your name, you're a catholic, right?
Me:Yeah
Dude: So...you probably drink a lot then, right?
Me: WTF?????????????????????????????

What drinking has to do with being catholic, I have no idea...all I know is, back in the 70's, mainstream Bollywood portrayed catho's as incorrigible alcoholics...I have'nt come across a single moron who has taken it this seriously...

A little reality check bro, come to bandra/Malad and spend couple of evenings chilling around. A lot of east indian catholics drink, which may have provided the speck of truth in bollywood representations.

And yeah too many morons around that do take stuff like that seriously.

@Pazhassi...dude...I'm 16...drinkinng at my age is not only illegal, but just plain hard...(Damn it, it's so tough to find a bootlegger in these parts :P )

Also, I'd say 'Soo...you must drink a lot' is kinda stereotyping...though that wasn't what I was touching upon, It was more about the fact that the above HAS to be one of the most moronic lines to use when you first meet a person...

@Dylan-thanks man, errm...how do you put in the hit counter and stuff anyway?

drinking? ...so did he give you advice on how to drink?

Arr0w said...

Err...Nooooo....he was asking me If I drink...as in, 'oh if you drink maybe I won't hang out with you'

In retrospect, now that he DOES hang out with me, I wish that I told him I was a raging Alcoholic who's spent around 3 years in Rehab...
