A rupee from everyone
Collecting one rupee from everyone in the class for photocopying of notes is pretty hard to do without getting embarrassed. The reason?
When you go and ask people for a rupee, they treat you with disdain. They arrogantly take the coin out of their pockets, and literally throw it at you. Not very far from the treatment a beggar receives.
Reminds me of Russel Peters.
50 cents is a lot of money. Maybe you save 50 cents here, and then 50 cents somewhere else, you have ONE DOLLAR! And then you go the dollar shop and buy something! (said in a mocking Chinese accent).
