Being an absolute wastrel!

8:30 : Enter office
8:35 Log on to orkut and pagal guy
8: 40: breakfast
9:00: Im still having can wait!
9:15: start orkutting
9:30: engrossed in following lives of people who I have never even smiled at in my life
10:40 Still engrossed in collecting gossip from the life of people who don't matter to me alongwith downloading music .
10:45: Su calls..Coffee
11:30: Excahnging notes on the lives of people on orkut interspersed with random bitchings about socialist and communists interspersed with I didn't get into the IIM cries
1:10 : Checked blogs, 3rd list of spjain( no name found)posted one more crappy blog in the mean 1: 10 leave for lunch.
2:00: take my own sweet time to finish lunch cos lunch means gossiping about people in office.who quit,who seeing whom,who played dirty politics to get ahead.
2:05: okie disgusting..hit the loo for a 15 min nap ...I tell u its the purrrrfect place for offices that lack common rooms!Has to be a clean loo but.
3:30: checked out discussions in pagal guy,start reading " love in the time of cholera"..said hi to random ppl on orkut and 3:30 leave for a soup break
4:45: come back from soup break start reading book again
5:30: leave for jam butter sandwich break ( no wonder my clothes dont fit me nemore!)
5: 45 : Come back.Boss has come back from meeting.Quickly paste Love in the time of cholera onto a word file with L&T header and start typing TECHNO COMMERCIAL OFFER BLAH BLAH
6:15: Shut down computer.Pack bags and run to get the window seat in the Bus.
Conclusion: Life as a wastrel in simply perfect.I just pray that noone disrupts this

Hey Saumya,
Think you have a great sense of humour. But I can relate with you, I work in the same place as you do ;)

Saumya said...

Hey sohrab...dont all of us feel the same..BORED AT WORK!!!...neways where do u work?

Sorabh said...

I have a theory: Everyone likes to not work unless forced to. To answer your question, am also at L&T. Yes, right now, I would rather be in a quite place reading the english patient.

Saumya said... so u know im from L& abt uniform work culture across L&T!!! hehehe !! Do I know you?? Whichh div of L&T?? and hey even I wanna read English Patient!

Sorabh said...

Ha Ha have worked across a couple of firms now, trust me the work culture is the same across firm, esp the big ones. They are like oceans, you can just lie in a corner and do nothing...

I suspect you are at Infotech? I finished with the English Ppatient last night, now reading a James Michner.

Saumya said...

what you can also do is
1. open
2. then open an arbit query/discussion thread

3.hit <alt+TAB> when boss steps in (and try to look busy here!)

@ dgrail..working is good as long as u get the salary and they allow u to while away ur time!!!:):) seriously all the ppl on the bench or not getting work cos they have resigned will have the same itineray and it can get frustrating at times!
