Yesterday I witnessed a discussion between the CFO and the admin guy where the CFO suggested that parking spaces be allotted based on company hierarchy. He also drew the parking spaces out on a white board and explained exactly which one his position should be given.


My teammate who is also my cubicle-mate does not talk to me these days. Instead he pings me on IM to give me any info. Oh, he also CCs the boss on every single email. And adds exclamations to the sentences, to give them a sense of urgency and air of mockery. 

Good times ahead!

Female colleague         – Do you pack lunch from home?

Me                                   – Yeah I get my own lunch

Female colleague         – Oh is it not difficult to do kitchen work when you have a full-time job?

Me                                 – It is actually not that difficult. My husband and I manage the kitchen quite well

Colleague (in amazement) – Oh wow! He also cooks?

Moral of the story – An adult man in the kitchen is always cause for amazement

There is a girl at office that is being laid off. Originally when she came in for an interview, she came as a 2-D artist which is her forté. Interviewed by a bunch of junior and inexperienced members, she was recruited and assigned to the design team where she had to work on all online and offline creative requirements (which she had no idea of). Not happy with her performance, they decided to fire her.

So, sometimes if you are let go of, it is a reflection on the lack of organization at your work place more than your individual capacity. – Adult/ Mature content – Pornography

How do I start explaining to people now?

Website developer (vendor) : I will charge you Rs. 15000 for all your requirements
Me                                                             : But, you will just have to develop one page and the other 4 pages will use the same
stylesheet, so that is barely any effort
Vendor                                                   : Looks like your teammate has taught you the one word ‘stylesheet’ and is trying to
help you bargain
Me                                                              : Not really. I am a software engineer myself and have worked as a web developer for 2
Vendor                                                 : Alright, let us make it Rs. 9000
