I am a girl (Final Part)…

BKP – That’s so cool.
Ank – What? It’s cool? My dad is sick and my mom is leaving me and you say its cool. So mean. I never knew guys could be so insensitive.

Confused?? Read Part one and Part Two to know more

BKP – Actually I meant its cool for your dad that there is some one is coming to take care of him. BTW I am always there to take care of him.

They know each other for just 5 days and Mr. BKP is head over heels to do anything for miss Ankita. I am sure miss Ank would have been really flattered by this comment.

Ank – Thanks for the concern BKP, but one of my friend will stay with me and there I have got a cousin in the town to take care of me. BTW you had viral? Its you, who need care more than me.

BKP – when is you mummy coming back?
Ank – Most probably she will be back by Monday.
BKP – That’s great.
Ank – what’s great in it. I will be alone for two days. BTW talk to you later. I am helping mom in packing.
BKP – Ok. Bye. Talk to you after your aunty leaves.

The same night.

BKP – Hi had your dinner.
Ank – ya, Just now with mummy.
BKP – ok. So mummy left?
Ank – Yes. I am already missing her.
BKP – Don’t worry I am there na. (Read: Main Hoon Na!)
Ank – Thanks. Good night. I am in no mood to talk.

Saturday.

BKP – Hey. Good morning.
Ank – Morning. How are you?
BKP – I am good. What about you?
Ank- bad. I have got special classes. (Remember Ank is doing Dental.)
BKP – Ok talk to you after classes.

Saturday went just like that.

Sunday. The big day for MR BKP cos today Ankita will meet her.

Ank – Hello. How are you?
BKP – I am good. So what’s you plans for the day.
Ank – going to End Point with friends. (For unknown end point is a small hill just on the outskirts of manipal. Where you can find couples having a gala time 😉 ;))
BKP – Good. Enjoy your day.
Ank – wanna come?
BKP – Nah. Meet you after you come back.
Ank – Ok.
BKP – bye.

BKP went to Big Bazaar to do some shopping including a new t-shirt worth rupees 149 is bought.

Time Evening 6’ Clock.
BKP – Hey good evening.
Ank – hello.
BKP – How was the day.
Ank – good. Had loads of fun. Now getting hungry. (Hinting BKP to take her out)
BKP – hey me to hungry. Why don’t we meet for dinner?
Ank – Great idea. See you @ 7:30
BKP – but where?
Ank – you tell.
BKP – I don’t know manipal. You tell me.
Ank – lets meet at Valley View. (Valley View is a 3 star hotel run by Welcome Group and the best in the town)
BKP – Ok. See you at 7:30
Ank – hey one of my friend will be coming with me. I hope you don’t mind.
BKP – no no it’s ok. Meet you at Valley view (VV). Where is VV?
Ank – Its near TC (Tiger circle). Ask any one. Or just ask your Auto guy to take you to VV.
BKP – But how will I recognize you.
Ank – I will be wearing a pink top and Jeans. Same for my friend. (The most common dress for a gal)
BKP – ok than see ya @ 7.30

Evening 7.30.
BKP – Hey me at VV. Where are you?
Ank – I am at my place. I will be late.
BKP – ok.
Ank – do one thing. Go and book a table for 3 of us. See you in ten minutes,
BKP – ok. I have already done that.

After 10 minutes.
Ank – hey I can’t come. My friend is not feeling well
BKP – why what happened?
Ank – Don’t know is getting dizzy and stuff. May be sunstroke.
BKP – ok than you come alone.
Ank – ok. You order something I will in ten minutes.
BKP – ok.

After 20 more minutes.
Ank – hey can’t come.
BKP – what happened?
Ank – my cousin has come home. My friend called him.
BKP – what?
Ank – I am so sorry. May be we will some other time. I am sorry.

BKP has kept all these info secret from all of roomies. He never told us what was the T-shirt for or why was for Manipal suddenly at 7:30.

But he never expected a welcome at home just to find Ankita AKA Santa waiting for him. He had a dinner at the one of the best hotel in the town. I hope this lesson teaches MR. BKP not to run after Gals.

For those who are curious Mr. BKP had a heavy heart and lighter wallet after the incident.

If any one wants the original transcript please excuse me, this was one the most horrible English-speaking guy I have ever seen.

After effects. My telephone bill has gone double due to this silly message session. By luck Mr. BKP has a free SMS facility.

I am a girl (Part II)…

This time the sender softens a bit and replies “ Oh! I am sorry to disturb your sleep. Hello I am Ankita”

Unable to make head or tail of the above line? Read the previous post here..

Mr. BKP thought this couldn’t be a gal. If the other person had been a gal she wouldn’t have told me her name so easily. So he shot another message.

BKP – I don’t think you are a gal. Please tell me who is this.
Ank – (Furiously). Hey mister who ever are you. Mind your tongue. If you cant respect a girl than don’t talk.

Mr. BKP thought wow; it’s my lucky day, a new week and new gal in tow. Lets try to impress her.

BKP – Hello, I am BKP. I am sorry. I thought its one of my friends playing prank. How you got my number?
Ank. – Hello BKP. I sent that message by mistake to you. It was for my friend.
BKP – Oh. That’s ok. Tell me what do you do?
Ank – I am doing my final year BDS from CODS (College of Dental Science), manipal. I am basically from kolar.
BKP – you are from manipal? I am also at manipal. I am from Bangalore but I am presently working here.
Ank – Don’t lie a guy from Bangalore will come down to work in such a small place no way.

(She also shot a few lines of kannada to test if he actually from Bangalore)

BKP – Hey it doesn’t mean I am from Bangalore than I will know Kannada.
Ank – Don’t lie any respectful kannadigga will know Kannada. Tell me the truth.
BKP – I am from . I have done my engineering from Bangalore.
Ank – Ok. So you are an engineer? That’s good. Are there any engineering companies around this place?
BKP – yes. There is a software company called
(Sorry. Company policies can’t name my company). It’s in Udupi. I work there.
Ank – so you are a software engineer. That’s good. My brother is in Intel, Bangalore.
BKP – No I am not a software engineer. I am a Quality Control Engineer. Actually, my brother is a PL in Honeywell, Bangalore (Another of his brother has come up) but I got placed through campus so had to come here.
Ank – Than jump to your bro’s company now.
BKP – I can’t cos I am a fresher. I joined this July only.
Ank – Ok. Bye. Class time.

The same day afternoon.

BKP – Good afternoon, Madam. Had your lunch?
Ank – No I will go now. Hey you just a testing engineer. I just talked to my brother and he told me quality control is nothing. And most of companies take freshers as trainee. How come you are promoted so fast?
BKP – It must be my capability that I have promoted.
Ank – I am impressed.
BKP – can you have lunch with me?
Ank – but you are in the company and manipal too far away from there.
BKP – No. I am at home. Today I have taken sick leave.
Ank – Why what happened?
BKP – Fever.
Ank – Than why don’t you take rest. We will have lunch some other day. Bye!!

The next day evening.

BKP – Hello. How are you?
Ank – I am fine. I should ask you this, How are you? Have you met any doctor?
BKP – I am down with viral fever.
Ank – than take rest and don’t forget to take medicine.
BKP – Thanks for being my friend, my only friend.
Ank – only friend? You don’t have friends? I mean People in the company.
BKP – they are there. But we just work in the company. There is no fun part involved.
Ank – what about your roommates?
BKP – They are my seniors. They treat me like a kid.

For most of you guys info. Mr. BKP is no kid and is never treated like kid.

Ank – oh that’s good. You have some one to look after you.
BKP – ya that’s there but than there is no friend na.
Ank – hey mummy came talk to you later.

The same night. After having a heavy dinner of 10 parota and half plate rice Mr. BKP messages.

BKP – hello. Had your dinner?
Ans – No. Mummy is preparing. I will have after that. What about you?
BKP – I told you na. My seniors treat me like a kid. They have brought me Milk and bread to have for dinner.
Ans – Oh that’s good. They are taking care of you.

On Friday anikta tells BKP that her mummy going back to native because her father is not keeping well.

What happened next read in next episode.

I am a girl…

This article includes few unknown characters and a prominent character known as BKP (name withheld without request). Incidentally this guy is also from Bihar and he is my flat mate.

Before we start the story a little bit of background about BKP. It will help you understand the article better. BKP is an electronics engineer, 2007 batch. He joined my company as a Trainee Control engineer (Trainee Tester, for technical personals). Two of his habit, which makes him different from other, is ?
1. Loves to boast about stuffs, which is indigestible. (For e.g. – He has a brother in USA working in some MNC, one studying in Harvard and don’t know how many more. Seems his father had just work after his marriage)

2. He loves girls. It’s not that boys love gals but he loves anything called a gal.

Now the story, It was a lonely Sunday night. Most us were went to the bed early because we knew what was in the store for us the very next day. It was Monday the worst day of the week. If you don’t know why it’s the worst day (Start working you moron). Our dear Mr. BKP as usual was chatting with something called a gal. It must be his good day ‘cos some one from an unknown messaged him. He shot back “who is this.” The person on the other side preferred to stay silent. And it’s the night end.

Next morning curiosity had the better of Mr. BKP and he sends another text
“Who is this?”

Pat comes a hostile reply, “ Robot, age -199 location – Dry River, Mars. Stop disturbing me you little earthling.”

Mr. BKP who learnt not to lose his confidence during such encounters sends another text, “Hey you its you who disturbed my sleep last night. So now tell me who are you and what on the sleeps name you sent me a good night message”

This time the sender softens a bit and replies “ Oh! I am sorry to disturb your sleep. Hello I am ………”

    To be continued…

For those who are cursing me please go and curse honeybee. I learned This trait from her.

The Three Engineers!!

Once upon a time two Project managers and one engineer met in the rest room of a big hotel.

The first PM goes and washes his hands, dries his hand and than takes out tissue to remove what ever is left. He says I am working with (Insert the company you hate the most) and we are taught to use all the resources evenly.

The second PM who was from (Insert the company you hate) and he washes his hand takes the tissue and dries his hand till there was not a single dry corner left. He says I am taught to use the resources to the max.

The engineer zips his pant and walks out. Than the other two guys say it seems you are not taught anything in your company. The engineer said I am taught not to PEE on my own hand!

The Week of forwards!!

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.
