If you are an English professor please let me know the meaning of the title. All I know that this was my house motto. Not of the house I live in but the houses at school in which they divide the students into. You belong to blue house or yellow house. The system has changed now I asked a kid which house he is in blue or red (or some other color) and he said, â€œ No I am not in any of those houses. I am ivory House and my best friend is in mint house. And my house motto is â€˜Break awayâ€™. And my best friend house motto is â€˜ever freshâ€™â€ It reminded me of my house motto and when I learnt the meaning of that.
I: Madam what does my house motto means?
Madam: Stupid you donâ€™t know that!!
I: no maâ€™am.
Madam: it means â€œone must stay modest even when one wins.â€
I: Thank you maâ€™am
I remained in MODEst in all my victories. Whenever I won something I changed my mode from sad to happy but when it comes to treat it changes from happy to angry so that no one asks me for a treat. Last time I became modest was when I my project guide had a meeting with me.
Guide: we have called this meating to notify you that the product you are working on is to be finished before time.
Me: how much before?
Guide: say 5 days from now
Me: WTF! Itâ€™s till one month before deadline
Guide: Thatâ€™s why I have called this meating . No go and start slogging the meat of the ass.
After that I got the meaning of meatings. Itâ€™s called to tell an individual how he/ she will be meated (butchered). I was working in this company to save myself from getting skinned. So I shot a mail to my supervisor
After todayâ€™s meeting I am ready to
work and give my best and not
resign soon. I will be working
18 â€“ 20 hours per day not just
8 hours as was told, when I joined.
I wouldnâ€™t be asking for any
Salary hikes till itâ€™s given, I wouldnâ€™t
ask for any change of designation and
be working for companyâ€™s good future.
Itâ€™s foolish of people who say
itâ€™s impossible to finish on time. I
think the job is really small and I donâ€™t
need of lots of resources to finish the job
Please read the above letter again but just the odd line starting from after todayâ€™sâ€¦
