On Credit Account book in a local Kirana store

Easy OC.

Samosapedia says that the popular South Indian slang word OC stands for Others' Cost or getting something for free. But as far as I remember, the origin of OC is from the "On Credit" that is usually got at your local kirana stores. Those were the days before Credit Cards, Big Bazaars and FDI in the retail minefield.

Also noticed that my neighbourhood has lost almost all the local Kirana stores. The last decent sized one closed a few days back. The surviving one is a little one sells only perishable milk, soft drinks and potato chips.

We have a "More" close by. This is how we shop.
