I thought its better to write a post than to tell people of my old silly soul which was tortured to life and the reason for so many forwards as a post instead of original post.
I was planning to write the whole thing in chronological order but it better if I narrate the story.
The day was the same as usual and the night was not. I was sitting in cubicle listening to don’t remember who it was (does it matter). Suddenly the call came on my intercom. A girl’s voice on the other hand speaks…
Voice – Santosh?
Me – Yes?
Voice – Hi!
Me – Hi!
Voice – We are waiting for you.
Me – Waiting?
Voice – Yes. You forgot?
Me – (Confused) I think so.
Voice – Come on you cant delay us anymore. It’s really important.
Me – than who is stopping you.
Voice – You!
Me – (Still confused) Me? How?
Voice –By not coming??
Me – (Am I so important in this company?) For what?
Voice – This is your HR and we are waiting for your appraisal meeting.
This conversation happened some 4 months back. And from that day till today I am yet to find out the true meaning of a meeting.
For the Higher Management – I am getting bored lets call a meeting and talk to some people. (Here they talk and rest listen)
For HR – We need to terminate this guy so call a meeting and let him know in a dramatic situation
For PM/PL – Hmm This guy is not working call a meeting and assign him so much job so that he will have to work 18 hours a day and 7 days a week!
All of them together – A time pass meeting to discus some silly issue.
A committee meeting – No work just talk.
For an employee like me – Buddy you are screwed!
The same thing happened to me a few weeks back. I was called for a meeting and told to work more and browse the net less. In past I used to work for a horrifying 8-10, nah not hours, Minutes each day. But now I am working bit more. The amount of work involves 4 hours of meeting, 3 hours of discussion, 1 hour of tea break, 30 minutes of lunch and mind boggling 30 minutes of works. I am presently busy in most of these meeting! So guys you may be seeing a lots of forwards than actual blog entries.
