Yeah! I'm told it turned out to be a big issue over a small tissue

You know once I was on a Domestic Lufthansa Flight from Frankfurt to Berlin.

If you've used European domestic airlines, you will find that the food and drink given is quick and pretty bad.
Anyways I was handed my super-hard roll by the lady with a paper napkin.

As I used the paper napkin, I saw that there was something scribbled on it with a pencil. It looked like some German writing and a phone number. I took a second to think about it. Of course I'm not stupid. Why would she give me her number on a paper napkin?

I quickly surmised that she must have written something down of importance to her and also decided to offer the paper back.

Excuse me, I said, holding out the paper napkin.
yes?
Umm.. there's something written on the paper...

YES. She said, too loud for comfort. It is an advertisement. I am not offering you my phone number.

There was silence on the plane during that time, broken later only by the sound of 100 germans snickering at me.

Sigh.

Domestic Lufthansa must be really cheap, to scribble advertisements in pencil on napkins.

You can't win them all, Sameer.

It was innovative marketing baba. All the paper napkins on the flight had the same thing. It was printed to look like a pencil scribble.

OH God Sam, I am rolling on the floor laughing. That is so typical you. Was she good looking at least haha?

Oh, and can someone please give me the full story of why this reminded of Gautam? Because I simply do not believe he was hit on by a man!

Although I have never met Gautam in person, but it is very evident from some of his posts that he is a romantic at heart, a filmi buff and knows how to enjoy small things in life. Therefore it reminded me of him :-)
