i'm a commodity!

i recd a mail this morning. which said : "P & A have bought you for $571."

huh? what did they buy? ME??? they BOUGHT me? had V put me up for sale while i was sleeping?!

i thought i was sleepy. or maybe it was the thunderstorm effect. i was hallucinating! first, i see & hear a thunderstorm outside... right here in bright & sunny TX! then i read such mails! as far as i was concerned, i saw NO reason why these two would even think they could buy me! after all, we're good friends!


but common sense prevailed. and i went on to check what exactly they were upto. that's when i realized, i had been bought. yes. unknown to me, i had become a commodity... and been bought.

i don't know what i shud feel worse about. the fact that i'm "sale-able". or the fact that i'm ONLY worth $560 plus taxes. thanks to facebook. d least they cud do was hike up my cost! i mean, hello? even recruiters pay u based on education & work ex, don't they?!

well, i don't usually tell V what's happening on my networking sites. but i think he shud know this! i mean my friends are virtually buying me!

now i'm off to see who can be bought and for how much!
