They can mean two different things
Tushar was in big bazaar cash counter, paying for all the stuff he had bought. Beside him were two kids. Each one was holding a pair of sandals and a hundred rupees note.. Both of them were reaching out their 100 rupees note to the cashier. Tushar picked up his stuff… but waited there to see what was happening.. The two kids were competing with each other..
Each one wanted to buy the sandals “first”
Tushar just smiled and was walking away.. Then he saw two young ladies.. Each one of them was holding a fair and lovely cream on one hand and a hundred rupee note on the other.. They both were rushing to the cash counter.. They both handed their 100 rupees note the cashier simulatenously..
“What the heck is this”, Tushar thought..
“Why are these two educated *ladies* behaving like kids”..
“Why are they competing to buy the fair and lovely *first*”.. Tushar wondered..
Just then, Lady No 1. made a loud statement… “I am paying for both the fair and lovelies” The other lady argued that she was hosting Lady No 1. So she had to pay.. as they were fighting about who pays the bill..
Tushar was lost in thoughts..
“Two people, each having a stuff on one hand and hundred rupees on another”.. wondered Tushar as he walked out Big Bazaar…. “It can mean two different things, depending on who those two people are.. If they are kids, they are competing.. If they are elders, they want to pay the bill for both the items..”
“Yes.. They can mean two different things.”
