Some guy chatting and planning to meet assume it is a business proposal and thinks he is doing business with me – really funny
I get so many emails each day with a lot of business proposals for forums and blogs, but this one stands out as one of the funniest of the funny business proposals I have ever got.
The story begins with some Guy Mainak from Kolkata. He contacts me through my Google+ Profile for a business proposal he wants to share with me.
Usually, I am open to meeting people, but as it is April time, I become a lot busier with my taxation and other non-technical stuff. So I couldn’t meet him. I thought the best option could be to meet him at my home on the weekend, but that did not work either.
Suddenly after I ask him about his blog or about page where I can read more about him, he says
have you understood my proposal
And that shook me off. 9 minutes ago he said this
I will send my propsal on Monday. After that we can proceed
The proposal that he will send a few days later and he is still expecting that I know it already. But things like those can happen in a chat, and so we ended the conversation with a note that he would send me the proposal on Monday.
Five days later i.e., on Wednesday, he pings me, and this is the conversation. You may fall off your chair, reading it.
He starts with
here i go with my proposal
And the next line
do you have wordpress blogs?
He probably forgot yet again that he had a glanced over my blog’s about page, which is a WordPress blog. Again these things can happen because five days have passed. The next statement made me go mad at him.
how many wp blogs can you add to my system?
I know nothing about the system. What it is, where it is, and how it works, and so I said NO. But then he assumed that I know how to read his mind.
He said people are ready to add blogs to his system without meeting him, and we know what type of blogs he is talking about. Though I could not understand his idea, I can sense it was something inline with some blog networks to make money from it.
Moral of the Story
If you have a business proposal for anybody, make sure you have a proposal that isn’t to laugh at and conveys what you have in mind before asking someone to be part of it. Or else it could be on the left for others to laugh at in some blog articles.
