I always loved samosas
It will take your 3-4 minutes BT it really worth more than that plzzz read

Don't Miss This..

"After reading this you will think that you are in the wrong business
The Samosa Vendor: A must read 

“Today in India its unbelievable..
The numbers are a little difficult to swallow,.....
But interesting nevertheless.”

(Mail was Sent By A Friend)

It was my regular train journey home from work. I boarded the 18:50pm train at from Paranur.
When the train was about to leave Guduvanchery, a samosa vendor with an empty basket got on and took the seat next to me. As the compartment was sparsely occupied and my destination was still far
away, I got into a conversation with him.
Me: "Seems like you've sold all your samosas today."
Vendor (smiling): "Yes. By God's grace, full sales today.""
Me: ""I really feel sorry for you people. Don't you get tired doing this tiresome job the whole day?"
Vendor: ""What to do, sir? Only by selling samosas like this every day we get a commission of .75 paise for each samosa that we sell."
Me: "Oh, is that so ? How many samosas do you sell on an average each day?"
Vendor: "On peak days, we sell 3,000 to 3,500 samosas per person. On dull days, we can't even move 1,000 samosas a day. On an average, we sell about 2,000 samosas a day.""
I was speechless..... for a few seconds. The guy says he sells 2,000 samosas a day; at .75 paise each, he makes about 1,500 rupees daily, or 45,000 rupees a month. That's Rs. 45,000 a month. OMG. I intensified my questioning and this time it was not for time pass.
Me: ""Do you make the samosas yourself?""
Vendor: ""No Sir. Our proprietor gets the samosas through a samosa manufacturer and we just sell them. After selling we give him the money and gives us 75 paise for each samosa that we sell.""
I was unable to speak a single word more but the vendor continued... but one thing... most of our earnings are spent on living expenses. Only with the remaining money are we able to take care of other business.
Me: ""Other business? What is that?""
Vendor: ""It is a land business. In 2007 I bought 1.5 acres in Urupakkam for 3 lakh rupees and I sold it a few months back for 15 lakhs. Now I have bought land in Uthiramerur for 5 lakh rupees.""
Me: ""What did you do with the remaining amount?
Vendor: ""Of the remaining amount, I have set aside 6 lakhs for my daughter's wedding. I have deposited the other 4 lakhs in the bank.""
Me: ""How much schooling have you had?""
Vendor: ""I studied up to third standard; I stopped my studies when I was in the 4th standard. But I know how to read and write. Sir, there are many people like yourself, who dress well, wear a tie, wear
shoes, speak English fluently and work in air-conditioned rooms. But I don't think you guys earn as much as we do wearing dirty clothes and selling samosas.""
At this point, what could I reply. After all, I was talking to a millionaire! The train chugged into Chromepet station and the samosa vendor got up from his seat.
Vendor: "Sir, this is my station...have a good day."
Me: "Take care."
What more is there to say!''

Ow, the slight UUX ("user un-experience") is common in Any.DO brand.

Just a quick few android examples:
- voice-input icon is under "back" arrow (there is also no way to hide it)
- there is no way of reordering task notes
- when you are editing task note in that similarly dreadful popup, there is a folder button that does nothing (should it allow for moving notes to a different task?)
- you cannot move completed items to a different date or "folder"
- whenever you restore an item from completed state, it SPRINGS to life and to the top of your list

- has unbeliveable sync problems
- resets the whole list whenever you check-off a task note
- can't seem to remember which groups you want closed (today/tomorow/...)

When I come to think of this, I will make a new post, like you have.
