8 years back, when I was in +1 class, I got 3/100 in Maths, 26/70 in chemistry and 16/70 in physics. Of course, it was very depressing for me & I failed for the first time. I didn’t disclose the results at home, saying it was still pending.
One of my friends told me that the result reached his home via postcard. That was shocking for me. I had a classmate who lived in our colony, he had bad figures too. I discussed the postcard scene with him. He too got depressed. He came up with a plan to visit post office & we arranged 200 Rupees. I got that from the piggy bank.
Went there and asked postman, if they had received any letter from school against our address. He checked & declined. My friend hurriedly said “our result card is coming. Please don’t take that to our home.” Postman gave weird expressions.
Friend,”Sir take this 100 rupee & party on our behalf”
Postman, “No give me 300”
Friend,”Sir, we don’t have that much, please take 100 more”
He gave another two 50 Rupees notes to him, postman shook hands and we left with a sigh of relief.
Next day, as usual, I came back to home.
Mom,’ Amar do come in kitchen”
I went there. She sounded angry.
She, ”when is your result coming”
Me, ”maybe next week”
She, ”you sure”?
Me, ”yeah next week we are getting the report card”
She threw steel worry (chimta) on my head and that too heated one,
and gave me tight slaps on my head, handed result card & 50 Rupees to me.
She, “get lost from the house & take this 50Rs. that you gave to postman”
I was crying hard & from inside I was burning like hell. Got 1-hour lecture.
HELL LOT OF EMBARRASSMENT.
In the evening I called my colony friend. He had the same kind of treatment & postman returned only 50 Rs to him.
We both got angry as hell on the postman. He double crossed us & didn’t return another 100.
Went to post office, fought with him. He didn’t entertain us. Also refused to return 100 Rupees stating that he had a Kingfisher beer with that. Abused us & we got out of office.
We bought compass from a nearby stationary store & gifted his bike 8–10 puncture holes.
Childish Revenge Taken via Bike.
Lol, just funny & embarrassing old days.
