Give me 5 good reasons for not helping out this innocent, naive damsel in distress who has blind faith in me....

1. "if someone is helping us w/o knowing us, something is fishy... "we here wont even accept free-bus pass if offered!!"

2. if the money holder's life is in danger from those business partners, why get into it? "self safety first!!"

3. if u've got this mail, thousands of others have also got it.. so why bother... "there are lots of people.. someone will help!!"

4. u've already got enough sleeping problems... u might not want to lose more sleep guarding all tht money!!

5. i didn'nt get her mail.. only u got!!... "i'll do all the things to delay u from replying.."

So reasons from 1-4 are due to 5!!!:-)

@Pradeep :) Valid reasons, but will not the fact that its a girl out weigh all other reasons?

Pradeep said...

Yes.. the fact that its a girl is a good enough reason not to venture into it!!!:).. "given the super reputation u have with them!!:)"

Pradeep said...

i.e ur "naseeb's" reputation.. which rest of us also share!!:)

Ravi Kiran said...

@Pradeep, Point taken, considering the reputation (or the lack of it) I have, its better not to venture in to anything which involves the fairer sex(and I dream of getting married...God help me !!)...
