Express yourself! Truth is a different issue ;)

AE (Airtel Employee): Hello Madam, I’m calling from Airtel. This is regarding your address verification.

Me: Oh! Ok… (surprised tone, because I took the connection on August 8th…and it’s already October 2nd!)

AE: Madam, this connection is under the name Ajay?

Me: Yes. That’s my brother.

AE: And you are using this?

Me: Yes.

AE: Ok, Madam, I’ll read out the address, please confirm. It is: Ajay, xxx-102, Xxxxxxxx Lane, Xxxxxxxxx, Trivandrum?

Me: Yes, that’s right.

AE: Ok, Madam, does your brother reside at the same address?

Me: Of course, he does.

AE: Ok Madam, could you tell me his address?

Me ๐Ÿ˜ฏ : Whaaaaaatttt ??????

AE: Hello? Ok, Madam, then no need… Madam, you might get a call from our head office, to check on me — to know whether I’d come to your residence for the verification. I’m not coming, but please tell them I came. Could you do that for me, please?

Me: Ahem. (Thinking: ‘Verifier’ being verified by the ‘verifyee’??!!) Sure…why not? Will they ask me to verify your name?

AE: No, Madam. But in case they do, my name is Aneesh.

Me: Deal, dude! (to myself, ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

This happened yesterday…on 2nd October. On Gandhi Jayanthi, on the birthday of the Father of our Nation, on the birthday of that guy who preached non-violence and did weird experiments with TRUTH, I’m asked to bear false testimony!! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Right now, am experimenting with my conscience. Do I support AE? Or do I ditch the deal and act shocked if the call comes from his head office??

  1. “Verifier being verified by the verifyee” ROFL ๐Ÿ˜€

    And the verifyee says “what verifier, nobody has ever verified me and why should I be verified the mobile is not in my name & verifying should happen when the to-be verified person is there and since I am not the person who should be verified by you should call later so that the person who has to be really verified gets verified and then you can verify whether the verifying happened or not…pheeew!!!!

    ๐Ÿ˜€

    Confuse them, no ifs no buts.

  2. phew… smita’s comment is so confusing…

    @ Priya

    lol… happens..happens… atleast u got a verification call ๐Ÿ™‚

    I guess the head office guy will tell u that someone from one level above will call u to chk if the head office has called you… and the chain continues…may be u will get Sunil Mittal online.. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Njy the new number.

  3. โ€œVerifier being verified by the verifyeeโ€ lolz. it set me laugh for quite a few minutes ๐Ÿ˜€
    experiment with conscience is surely going to be rewarding but i think you can do a favor to that poor employee of airtel……making him work even when it was a national holiday! ๐Ÿ˜€
    and surely gandhiji would forgive you for it ๐Ÿ˜€

  4. LOL These guys are simply amazing. They never cease to surprise! ๐Ÿ˜›
    Apparently Airtel’s verification process has been outsourced to Onicra. They happened to be Onicra’s first big client. And Onicra is related to Onida.

  5. Hey! Even I got a call for a Credit Card verification! They called up on my mobile and asked the landline number. Then the same girl called on the landline number a few seconds later, asked my name and banged the phone! Uffff!!!

  6. it happ wid me too.. i dont trust Airtel anymore
    I had agreed to a plan , they activated my connection, and 2 weeks later they de-activated it.. I called up their customer care to find out what’s wrong and they told me my address is not verified yet, my conn. was de-activated for a week till the verifier came, i wasn’t at home, and he was rude to my neighbours too. A week later, another one came, verified my address and my line was activated the next day… after 2 whole weeks dat is !! And yet I got a bill for the entire month..
    I applied for cancellation of the number and demanded my refund.
    They forced me to continue with this connection for 6 more months with 0 rental ,and they said I could apply for cancellation after 6 months.. !! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
    Sick of it really..

  7. I had heard this that airtel was implementing fantastic biz model by outsourcing everything…
    seems they have really outsorced thier mind too…
    i think the verifier will now call n tell u that if sunil mittal calls up, then tell him that i had come over to get ur numbr verified…
    ha ha…wats happenin to gr8 indian companies..

  8. You should not have made the deal with the verifier. If he had to come to your place for verification, he must. Why must you stand by a guy who brushes off his work?

  9. I seriously smell something fishy. Airtel dont work on Public holidays, unless that guy who calls himself Aneesh takes out a print out of all the to-be-verified users and makes calls on his own !!! Again, a verification call after two months ????

    Phew! I have done my part in scaring you ๐Ÿ˜‰

  10. You should’ve plotted something major… Call him back and ask him, “Hey dude, you want to so something illegal? It’ll be our little secret.”
    And from what I’ve read here, he’ll jump at the opportunity. So, take him to a dog pound and ask him to steal a pug…
    Then call up his superiors and tell them that this guy was trying to sell you a vodafone connection! :mrgreen:

  11. @Everyone
