Monday to Friday in a 3x3 box of flickering computers, unclean coffee mugs, ergonomic chairs, cheerless faces and buzzing mobiles, life couldn’t be more exciting than this. Know am unpleasantly sarcastic when I say that and am challenged with the other side of the story.... Big fat pay packages...challenging work...most sought after bride/groom elite upper crust...Know it’s too much to ask for best of both the worlds. . :(
But I just don’t get to know why people sport rigid “Schwarzenegger” faces every day in office as if a smile mite cause a coronary thrombosis or why my boss informs my bad appraisal ratings with an evil handshake (camera zooms to past to evoke similarity....Jesus being betrayed by Judas)...or why we have people hugging each other just to know what’s the brand of shirt the other is wearing... Maybe I am at the wrong place or maybe there is a big conspiracy theory working against me...
Amusing that etiquettes are the buzzword of a people so used to... eating chaat barehanded, flaunting fake Gucci watches to impress beautiful damsels in town and mouthing out expletives deliriously at somebody’s beck and call .......Sometimes you can see fascinating changes in the way a person behaves once he enters the work place. Purist might call it professional behaviour in its classiest act. But how can that account for the demeanor he shows while talking to the house keeping guy who apparently is another co worker of his, his permanent fake grin when the boss talks to him which caused his facial muscles to stretch and bloat like a big mouthed cardinal fish...!!!
Office space behavioral syndromes spill outside the office as well... Project parties are technically a time to ease your nerves and improve relationships with co workers on a personal level...Lovely time to pour obscenities on a mate and you can escape the brunt by claming that you were on booze that day!! And sometime all hell breaks loose and boss might come to know the true “affections and adoration” that a subordinate “high on booze” might have for him...
Many a time, I receive mails informing me of unpleasant additional work easily concluded by carrying a “Thanks in advance” tag. ..But what’s the point in thanking before I even think about acknowledging that mail...And am comfortably made to finish the job without asking whether I am ready to do it!!!..It can’t get any further frustrating!!
I occasionally receive bulk mails from some “so and so” leaving the company due to some “so and so” reason...But he “definitely” had a great “pleasure” working with me all these years and is grateful for my consistent support...God knows what sort of pleasure he had!!!!And there are freaks who keep congratulating someone for doing something in some non descript field but they have a panache for spamming others mailbox as well. Hard to understand why they use a “Reply to all” to congratulate a single guy!!
Junta craves for attention....Junta loves to flaunt his superior egos’...Junta loves to be the talking point...Junta loves gossiping....Junta loves to be filthy rich!!!Junta is made of freaks! The world inside office is full of freaks!!! And maybe I am a freak myself!!!
