SP calls me up.
SP: Do you know how to work on Photoshop?
Me: A little bit, yeah.
SP: I need a favor.
Me: Uh huh….
SP: Please! It’s for a client, I need to create an invitation, based on a football theme.
Me: What’s in it for me?
SP: Ummmm, if you do this for me, I’ll get a you a date with my cousin!
Me: Where does she stay?
Me: Go on….
SP: Oh yeah, if you help me out with this, I’ll set you up with my cousin!
Me: Show me her pic!
*She sends me over pics of her cousin*
Me: Interesting… What if she says no?
SP: Don’t worry about it! She owes me a favor. She’ll oblige.
Me: I see… Alright, you’ve got yourself a deal!
*I did the project for her*
*After a few days*
SP: Yay! The client loved it!
SP: Yeah….,yeah…, I remember..
*After a month*
SP: Hey! Wassup?
Me: Waiting for you to set me up with your cousin…
SP: Ummmmm, how about a cute Iranian chick from Bangalore?
Me: Not interested!
SP: C’mon! She’s a hair stylist! Imagine, all the free haircuts!
Me: I’m more into Indian women…
SP: Ok.. Bye!
Me: Wait! This ain’t over!
*After another month*
Me: Thinking how you played me and got me to do your project..
SP: Look, I’m sorry..
SP: Fine…The reason, I didn’t set you up with my cousin is because you’re a nice guy and if my cousin took a liking towards you, she’d like to settle down with you. All that is fine with me, but when she realizes that the reason I set you up with her was due to a favor, she’d make my life hell….
Me: Say what…?
SP: Yeah! You would have ended up as my brother-in-law and my cousin would have hated me because I played you! She’d torture me till I die.
SP: Would you like that? Huh? Huh? Huh?
SP: Would you like to see me tortured! And spoil my relationship with my cousin?
Me: Never mind….
