It was during the summer holidays after my 12th grade. I was working on a local bar as a bearer, for which I got INR 50 a day. I had opportunity to interact with everyone and observed how they change after drinking. It was really interesting too. One day a guy asked me to bring eggs, what happened next was given below.

The Guy : Hey Kid, bring me eggs.
Me : (Taking boiled eggs on plate) Sir, do you want me to add pepper?
The Guy : Hey no no no, who asked for boiled eggs? It has gas, go get me a omelette.
Me : Sure Sir, but I have a doubt. How come boiled egg has gas and omelette doesn’t?
The Guy : You don’t even know the basic science uh? Come here, sit. Take a raw egg and shake, you get sound right? Because there is some gas/air inside. Now if you boil the eggs, where does the gas/air go? It stays inside the egg right? On the other hand, if you prepare omelette, you have to break the egg. The moment you break the egg, the gas/air escapes from the egg and gets mixed with atmosphere. That is why boiled egg contains gas and omelette doesn’t.
Me : (Speechless Is that science or is he drunk?)
When I tried to search about the incident recently, he was right. That moment I realized anyone and everyone can teach you some lessons, only if we are ready to listen though.
