  • you do not wish all the girls in the address-book to receive calls from you, and …,
  • you do not wish me to call Maya, whom you seem to be calling every night,
  • you wish that your sleek Motorola mobile should not be sold (I think, I can pay the next semester fees with the income),
  • you want something of this sort not to happen to you,
  • you do not want me to read all 10 new messages you have received,
  • you do not want me to read all the special messages you have sent, and
  • your mobile number is 97395 82918,
