Living in an apartment

We moved in to a apartment complex about a year ago. And I am still getting to know the life in one.

Recently, the security agency at the main gate changed. Blue shirts were replaced with green shirts. And for the last three days, we could hear water running in the flat above. So, we finally decided it was time to report. Hubby gave his advice on doing so and went to the gym. I was cooking and expecting guests later in the day. with many things on my mind, I dialled 1002.
A voice on other end said,"Police Control Room"
Wow, the security fancies to call itself the police control, I thought and said" Iam calling building 2 flat 5c and please send the plumber."
"The voice," Lady, this is Police Control Room"
"Yeah, yeah. I Know."
"Do You where you have called?"
" I called the main gate. It is where we call. The plumber never answers his number"
"Please listen. This is Police Control Room"
I glanced down for first time during entire conversation. I was calling on the blue phone and not on the red intercom. I smashed the receiver down.

And now the blue phone is dead.


  1. lol. PCR. They help only when you call them ;)

  2. OOps..:)

  5. He he he in all this chaos did you actually ring the security about water dripping.
    Good to see you here after so long. How are you..

  6. :) :) :) What? The policeman didn't send plumber??? Aren't they for social service. :D

    Where did you disappear off to?

  7. hahaha That was a hilarious mistake. Now your number is on their radar.

  8. A long recess?

    Good incident to begin again with.

  9. Now, who do you call to report the dead phone? And do you use the red intercom? Too many rules!

    oops it is. Doing fine. Had hands full and so was off blogging.

    Good to see you too:)

    At your service to bring the smiles on:)

    Yeah, I did. The guys in the flat above had forgotten to close a tap when they went on a tour!
    And me, I'm fine as goofy as ever.

    That sums the whole episode:)

    You try that - policemen and plumbers;D
    I'm busy playing pee-a-boo with blogging.

    Thank God, the phone is dead.

    Yep. very Holy.

    Not as good as Preethi Mixer grinder.

  12. Lol.. and this always happens when mind tries to act over smart managing too many things at a time.. Things like this happen with me while on chat. and I have noticed, i have had once scribbled something to someone accidentally which i wasn't supposed to say.. I laughed out loud later by myself.. :P
    Good post ;)

  13. Nice read. Phone anecdotes are usually hilarious. Once I called my dad and had a full five minute conversation with him before I realised he thought it was my sister calling him!!

  14. LOL....1002. Never dialing it again in my life. From the intercom too !! :)
