One Saturday morning, Mrs. Batliwala finished her shopping and left the Supermarket. But soon she discovered that she had forgotten to buy tea. She rushed back, got the tea and went towards the Cash-desk. As she did so, she saw the manager of the Supermarket come up to her. Madam', he said, holding out his hand, '1 want to congratulate you!
