all this for one kaapi

yet another random afternoon at work... all of us were very busy staring at the walls in the name of 'deep thought' and India was chasing Sri Lanka as usual in yet another life or death situation... to add to the randomness we decided we'd go out for some tea (come on NGOs don't have those fancy coffee vending machines) As and when we were walking Boss quipped that he wanted coffee . The coffee addict that I am had no second thoughts ... V and S also were ok with it, so we decided we will abandon the usual corner tea shop and go this place->  which apparently served high-quality , tasty south Indian food ... 


                                                                                                                                                              We (me, Boss, V and S) occupied a table and the server came with the traditional vaazhai-elai as it was the TM of Murugan Idli shop to serve food in plantain leaf and we refused as we just wanted 3 coffees ...
 we waited for some 5 minutes as we discussed 'important' err matters like 'The artist, Amala paul and mattrum pala' and there came our steaming hot coffee in beautiful davara tumblers... 
that is a davara-tumbler with frothy coffee (kaapi)

 now wait... actual trouble started here...
 The coffee was neither steaming hot nor the davara-tumblers were clean (leave alone beautiful) well, 21 INR and this is what is the actual state... We did manage to return those rather dirty tumblers and complaint to the manager who asked us to 'patiently' wait for another 10 minutes for our coffee  and what came was nothing better than the former! We had no patience and we finally drank the so-called first grade filtered degree kaapi paid the sum and vacated the place with the thought that we'd never visit this place again...


and this shop has wiki page, a historical background and all that jazz http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Murugan_Idli_Shop


well, this scene where Dhanush explains how the corner tea shop guy brings tea... well, this Murugan Idli shop was no better and as a matter of fact our tea kadai paiyan knows better manners and etiquette! #NotJoking


well you may ask me 'all this outrage and rant just for one kaapi?' well, kaapi is life and life is kaapi....kaapi for all.. all for kaapi!!! #HandBetweenHeadAndDesk

  1. You should have gone for Saravana. They have the number 1 filter kaapi (Try Rowdy MBA's style in Quick Gun Murugun accent).
