My 'Oh God!' Neighbours...

I have these neighbours...
(ummm...yeah, I'm sure you are well aware of the said species...)
We aren't really social with each other...
(ummm...yeah, I'm sure you are well aware of this behavior too...)
I haven't seen them in a year either...
(ummm...yeah, I'm sure you have been through the same...)
Last night, they had a party at their place
(and yes, we weren't invited...but that's not what this is about either...)
There was loud music and by the looks of things, a bunch of people were there too...
(and no, this isn't what this is about either...)
Today morning, the raddi-wallah was over to pick up old newspapers and well, it generally takes a long time for him to sort the papers in a bundle, tie them and weigh them...
(yes, i'm getting there...patience!)
While he was doing that, my neighbours had the local grocer deliver them some things...the bill was some 270/- and the woman handed him a 1000 rupee note...the poor delivery boy was having a little trouble giving her the 730/- change...he said he doesn't have it and she says "Oh God! We always buy from you...take the money and get me the change next time..."
Now in any other context that wouldn't really be a problem for me at all...trouble was of course, the whole facade she put up so some guy came up and paid the bill...I probably wouldn't be blogging about this at all but what got me was the "Oh God!" part...that was just too fake...and the other guy who came to pay the bill...no points for guessing why he popped in...
