Warming the back side

In the last weeks my friends ask me what do u do at the office. And my reply is warming my back in the AC cooled room. For those who never got the meaning I am on the bench. Well those who think bench is the best place on the earth and there is nothing better than bench. You don’t have to do anything just sit, surf, read a book and go home early. But what about getting bored. Where you are alone and people in the next cubicle is working. So guys who think bench is the best place think again!!! cos you are right!! It is indeed the best place.

How many of you have seen a software engineer coming home at 6 o’ clock in the evening. None. If you have seen one he/she must be on the bench. I know how good bench feels. You can chat for long hours without any dead lines, except its time to go home. You take a break from coffee machine and not a break for coffee. You can come late and go early. Lunch hour is of one hour and sometimes you can stretch it a bit more and no one will complain.

If you are really bored than you can have your creative juices flow and write a blog just like the way I am doing at present. And if the money of you have received as so called salary is more than you can spend. Than use the precious band width of the company and become a stock market player. Start earning a little more. It would be an extra income without any problem!! Those who are bit plump go ahead and learn a new game. That could be either TT, football, basketball, Chess (against a human) as most of the IT companies have got at least one of the game. Attend gym if there is one. And yes you have time so downlaod some music so that when you are in project you can listen to music when the boss is shouting his heart out.

So those who think they are on bench and having a bad time guys wake up. It’s the golden period and please don’t waste it getting boring.

BTW I have a good news to share by the next week I will be in a project. Bye bye bench. It was the worst time alone sitting.
