I’ve been in Delhi for almost two months now, and one of the things that fascinates me the most is the barrage of unsolicited marketing text messages I receive almost daily.
I have been offered lucrative “PLOTS” of all kinds in all sorts of places at all types of prices. I get an offer for a full body massage at Moksha Spa almost everyday, and my own cell phone company sends me at least five absolutely unnecessary text messages a week (the latest was about taking my child under five to get polio drops).
Below I’ve included some of the more interesting ones I’ve received since I’ve been here:
I have not yet been able to figure out what exactly this is selling. Refreshment? Love? Ambipur? Thailand? Or is it something else altogether?? I feel like I’m supposed to be reading between the lines here and am failing miserably. I suppose the next time I feel the need to refresh anything I’ll give them a ring…
What is a FLAT ‘n’ REST? Also love the ABHI NAHI TO KABHI NAHI – basically if I don’t act now I’ll lose this opportunity forever. What if a FLAT ‘n’ REST is going to make my wildest dreams come true?
MULTIPLEX must be a pretty great selling feature. Also I have a cousin in Dwarka and according to her, location would NOT be a selling point here (no offence to anyone in Dwarka)…
Ummm…thanks for the pep talk? I guess if 28 nations swear by it, why not me?
Who is Kumari? And what did we talk about? Was I happy? These are questions that only God can answer.
Well if it’s a Steal Deal I might as well buy! That is if I can figure out what they are selling…my guess is more FLATS because they refer to “possesson”
And now for my personal favourite:
Umm, yeah. I didn’t know this but am relieved to know that all it takes is a missed call to solve the problem. Gotta love modern medecine: bald men and those with thyroid disorders rejoice: if you’ve got a mobile telephone you are cured!
