Trying Hard

Dear Friends,

If you remember my this post written some where last year when i was in the heaven called Bench. From then till now there were lots of changes on my professional front that includes few projects, some more becnh hour and a emotional job change. Emotional becuase it was one hell of thinking between a compny with a brnad value or a company which is still paying salary. (My last job had resorted to pay cut of upto 100%) Money got the better of me and here i am working for a company who is still paying salary. (That too 100% including variable component.) 

I am trying to make sure that this company keeps paying me my salaries and to do so i am working hard. Which has taken a toll towards my blogging and related activities. If there are chances that i have not visited your blogs in years then please bear with me. Lets hope that i come out of this soon and become a active blogger.

Signs You’re No Longer in College…

Got it from the internet. 

— You no longer know what time fast food drive-thru windows close.

— Your potted plants stay alive.

— You pay at least a dollar more than the minimum payment on your credit card bill.

— Your friends’ hook-ups and break-ups are now marriages and divorces.

— You attend parties that the police don’t raid.

— You’re not expected to leave the room when the adults are talking.

— You refer to college students as “those kids.”

— You drink wine, scotch and martinis instead of just beer, beer and beer.

— You feed your dog Science Diet instead of leftover pizza.

— At 6 a.m., you’re putting your contact lens in instead of taking them out.

— Naps are no longer weekday options.

— Dating involves dinner and a movie, not keggers and Ecstasy.

— Grocery lists contain more than toilet paper and potato chips.

— Wass’up Dude is replace with hello Mr. XYZ

God! Why Me?

Gotcha. :)

but as i promised in my last post here comes the “HAPPY POST!!”

So why this topic. Simple to get your attention. I asked this question when i was on the verge of getting terminated (not life but job). But then came this new mail like a “knight in Armour coming for the rescue of damsel in distress.” The word etched in gold, written in the ancient language of HRism. If you don’t know the language than you are in either of the two category. You were never employed or You are a member of the secret society of HR. So the mail brought the news of a potential “Job Opportunity.” and it also said that if i am not interested than i should forward it to my friends.

Thus started the journey from being a prospect employee to a indispensable asset. An interview was “scheduled.” which brings me to a question which i always ask my self  “Interview is derived from Inter + View. INTER means between two or more people or things and VIEW means to see. Combined it  gives the Meaning as two or more people seeing each other. But when we go for an interview its just the other guy asking questions?” Some times this so called process is also called “Technical discussion.” Those who are good at this old and mystic language of HRism please do let me know the answer.

On the appointed day I was there in the office for technical interview and there comes a fat ugly looking  guy and says “Santosh? Come!” No introduction as who he is or what he does. Shoots some question and leaves.  Lets not blame this fellow.  He is programmed to work like a machine. Exactly 9 hours a day (8 hours work plus one hour of lunch). Never had a GF, Married to a women, Has a car but takes company cab, Smiles at his junior when he is about to screw them and seniors when he know he is screwed. And thinks that the Company HR is the most beautiful person the world. These type of species are called Manager. Refer my this post for more info on them.

Than comes guys who calls himself HR head. But i don’t believe him. Because HR is a secret society and the person standing in front of me is MALE. which cant be possible! but he said you are hired Welcome to <BEEP> <BEEP>. Yeah i am being secretive because there is another society called the-angry-and-screw-you-type-of-managers-and-Company-Representatives. Who don’t like the employees to write about company.

All in all i am Hired and working again. Those asking for  party can come down to Bangalore and we will go some place nice for a drink and than you can pay the bill and drop me home.

P.S.-> if you can’t understand the above post or some of the words than please contact someone who is employed or get hold of a HR (if you can find one do let me know)

After watching the Oscars live I wanted to give a long speech but the rules of the awards asked me do something else.

The image is already here.  So its one down and before i give it some more people this award let me list some Ugly lies bout me. Why lies? cos truth is nothing but white lie.

Here we go

  1. I am at present Masquerading as one of the person I thought that I am done with.  I re-registered this person’s  mail id which was deleted 
  2. I had two so called GF’s and presently both of them don’t even care that I exist let alone alive. Incidently both of them are out of india at present one in England with Hubby and second in Canada.
  3. The last time I traveled 2nd class sleeper in train I had to pay fine for not having a valid ticket. 
  4. My Present obssesion is tele series F.R.I.E.N.D.S. I am downloading them like crazy
  5. During a company interview I was asked “why i got less marks in engineering and 12?” I told “I never got less marks I got more marks during my 10th Exams!” Belive it or not i was selected.
  6. I saw my first porn when I was in class 8. It was one of the advantages of going a boarding school. and yeah the room had some 30+ guys watching the movie with me.
  7. My fav teacher during school days was the librarian because she never said anything when I bunked class. Not library classes but the regular classes and went to hide (hang) out in library.
  8.  I used to write a diary called “Myself.” It was during my school days,  when i was going through some rough patches. Six year down the line I still have that notebook. Its just one note book but its was my feeling for myself. 
  9. At one time I was watch freak and I changed them at of the rate of one per year. Then came mobile phone and they had the same life time. At present its my jobs which I am changing more or less at 1 per year. 
  10.  I got my first check when I did a voluteering work for a Theater Festival. It was of Rs1500. In return i lost 1 months of colleges and one full internal exams. 

Note to Arshat I hope that I was able to keep up your testerone level high. because we engineer get High on either Words or Wine :)

Now come the hardest part giving away to people. There are loads of them but 

I will gove two quotes instead of one. 

If two past lovers remain friends, it’s either they are still in love.. or they never were…  – Unknown

 

Love is touch, A kiss, a glance that can make any day feel like the first day of spring..  –Unknown

P.S. ->I got these quote during my school days and I love them so much that I still remember them.
