"Are you sure you are quoting the right fare", I asked the auto-driver.
"Don't you know the fares have gone up", he replied, thrusting his rate card at me. "I am not overcharging. See!"
I glanced at it. I had been right after all. "You are not overcharging me", I explained. "You are undercharging me."
I paid the fare and got off. He continued to stare at me.
"In all my twelve years of driving an auto", he said, "nobody has ever done this."
This could not have been the first time he undercharged someone. Are people really that dishonest?
