In one of my jobs, we used to sub-contract some small works to small contractors and some of them were based out of the city. One day, I was talking to a new contractor and told him that I need him to fill up a form and return it to me. The following conversation happened between us:
Me: So, can you give your mail address so that I can send you the form?
Him: No. 5, Sara….
Me: No. Give me your email address. Its faster, and you can fill up the form in electronic format and send it to us.
Him: muthu (Long pause)
Me: Ok, muthu should have a trailing email domain right? Like ‘@’gmail.com , ‘@’yahoo.com , ‘@’rediffmail.com – What’s yours?
Him: (After thinking for a couple of seconds) windows.com
Me: muthu@WINDOWS.COM ???!!!
Me: Ok, can we have your office address again? No. 5, Sara…
Even Bill Gates may not be having that premium email domain!! 😀
