Ah, the joys of Skype. I just received a message from Dhaval saying, “Hello.” I looked at it and there was a conversation with the same Dhaval back in April 2014. Reading it again I realised how silly the dialogue had been and thought I would share it with you for your amusement.
14 April 2014

[11:35:47] Dhaval – Web Development: Hello
[14:42:04] Kevin Harrington: We’re not going to repeat the last conversation are we? We have no projects to outsource. Thank you.
[14:47:09] Dhaval: Okay no issue
[14:47:49] Dhaval: If you want to need any time help please contact us
[14:48:01] Dhaval: Have nice talk with you
[14:48:09] Dhaval: Have a nice day (bhangra)
What a fabulous business development approach. I wish Dhaval all the best when he finds his ideal career.
BTW, the last message from him in the text terminates with bhangra. This was, in fact, a small animated gif of someone Bhangra dancing. He subsequently edited the message to show a smiley face instead. I preferred the Bhangra dancer.

[16:03:56] Dhaval Patel: hello
[16:04:02] Dhaval Patel: how are you?
[16:14:35] Kevin Harrington: Not you again! Please cease contacting me.
[16:15:04] Dhaval Patel: okay
I wonder when I’ll hear from him next.
If anyone wants to meet an ineffective, persistent, salesperson let me know and I’ll give you his details.
