A good sign
Just as he pulls up the shutters of his shop, Vijay is greeted by the first customer of the day.
"Sorry sir, all my trucks are booked right now."
"Why can’t I ever find a reliable driver when I really need one!" - Vijay muses.
Just a kilometre away…
"If only I could reach out to all the businesses and offer my services!"
"Your quote is exorbitant! This is unreasonable!"
After a tense few minutes of haggling, he reluctantly places the receiver down, having closed the deal at a much higher price.
"This is too far and not worth what he's paying."
"I deeply regret the delay, Sir. But there is no way for me to know exactly where the transporter could be."
"I wish customers could book us easily like they do a cab. It'd really help us when we're running empty," Ajay thinks.
Can both Ajay and Vijay
find a solution
to their problems?
