Shiv: Stevey! Gift me the brand new Samsung Galaxy S8 man! ? It looks fab and costs ‘just’ Rs 65,000! ??
Steve: ‘just’ 65,000 ?.. At the rate these smartphones are selling these days, people might have to do only window shopping even in Amazon.. ? Speaking of windows and Amazon, did you check that Jeff is closing in on Bill Gates these days? No wonder if all he’s doing for his employees is offering 2 pizzas.. ??
Shiv: Yeah man just Rs 65,000! Cmon?! Not a big deal for you ? I’ll make a Facebook story of it! You’ll be famous! ? My bet is on Bezos to top the Richest Men’s list next year!
Steve: Facebook story ? Zuckerberg is bombarding copy cats everywhere with a mission to bore people of Snapchat stories.. If he keeps doing that Evan Spiegel might have to be replaced even from the bottom position of Richest Men’s list and layoff major part of his workforce.. ?
Shiv: Will he still have Miranda Kerr? ?? Man! I read companies are laying off employees- First Cognizant and now HSBC! See that’s why our startup will the best place to work at! No obscene behavior, No layoffs! Everybody will want to work with #ShivandSteve! ?
