Me and my colleague

A and I met during the induction and we have remained friends ever since. He is working for another division at another location. Through our internal messenger, we often chat about projects, bosses, hikes, bonuses and the cribbing that goes with it and sometimes about mundane stuffs. He once read his salary slip wrong and called me to inform that he has got a 100% hike in his salary. Naturally, I spread the rumor to many other colleagues across businesses and locations. (You must trust a woman to do this.) He is now based out of US and due to the time difference and work load, we seldom catch each other online and our conversations have reduced to Hi! and Byes! I found the following saved in my local folder as I was wrapping things up in my current location and did not have the heart to delete.

(Me: Busy with the calculator doing arithmetic of the taxes and laxes and how much is going to affect my next salary and how much I am going to pay to the government so that they could drive luxury cars and promise free T.V near the elections.)

Colleague (through Messenger): I shaved my head. Now I am bald.
Me: umm
Colleague: what umm? Britney Spears did it and it was in the headlines.
Me: umm (thinking she also went commando)
Colleague: Talking about news, what do you feel about Ash and Abhi? Do you think they will be able to live up to the name and standards of Bachan?
Me: Who are these Abhi and Ash? Is Bachan, the name of a company? Are they hiring people of my profile? If so, kindly forward my resume.
