Another Isaac Story!
My sister, M, sent Isaac to Hawalli to get something for her friend and asked him to call her once he's done.
Isaac: I bought the thing you asked for
M: Cool, now just go to my friend S's house, its located in... (she was giving him directions) and call me from there to make sure its S's house :-)
Isaac reaches S's house and calls my sister... he is sometimes so robot-like that you have to give him the step-by-step directions.
Isaac: OK I am there
M: Ring the bell!!!!
M: Ask if its S's house
A man, S's husband, opens the door...
Isaac: Hello, Is this S's house?
Isaac: Here talk on the phone please
M: Hello!!! I am M... S's friend (Wondering why Isaac did that!!!)
Husband: Yes yes, hello how are you?
M: I am good... How are you?
Husband: I am fine.
M: OK I just wanted to make sure that the driver reached your place.. the correct place
Husband: Yes it is. Thanks :-)
The husband hands the phone back to Isaac
Isaac: OK done?
M: Yes.. Thats the house, thanks
*After 20 mins*
The driver is back with the stuff that he bought from Hawalli and that he was supposed to hand in to S's husband!!!!
M: NO NO!!! Send it back! Why did Isaac bring it home! WHY!
M sends Isaac back! And he "SUCCESSFULLY" delivers it! *phew*
I never... NEVER thought someone can be so robotic to the point where they want to be spoon fed with detailed procedures on what to do!!!
