How To Choke Your Boss!

  • Aug. 13th, 2003 at 2:35 AM
In too deep, Brood
Okay, something you guys would perhaps find interesting for a change. :oP

I hardly slept much last night. Partly due to having been online most of the night (Which, by the way, is'nt really unusual for me!) and partly due to the fact that I was'nt online (Which, by the way, is seriously unusual for me!) :o) One of you knows the reason, but most, if not all, of you would understand it. :o)

I had to go to work like seriously early this morning. I've been assigned to an express project these past few days, we're working on a new Content Profile (That's Outsourcing Content Writer jargon for WYSIWYG {or WUCIWUG for the new technocrats out there. :o)} for the end subscriber.).

Today was the confirmation and launch for the first phase in the reality shift we've been working on at office, and me, being the 'authorized signatory'(?) was supposed to be present at the prize opening.

Anyways, that's besides the point, I got to work at sometime between 7:00 am and 7:15 am and was viscously robbing terminators eye impact with my own set of glow in the dark, red eyes, complete with accentuating black circles and all that jazz. :o)

The launch went off without a flaw, and rather than come back home and sleep some rest into our systems, we quietly went to our desks and got to work. It should be noted now, that I am not the normal kind of labourer in the office circle, I'm quite a trend setting individual that way. :o) I come to work at about 10:30 AM or so and leave by around 4 PM'ish. :oP

NEways, today I was totally sleepy, having gone offline only at 5:30 AM'ish.... And sleeping years later on and all that sad stuff.... So I decided on leaving work like uber-early!

Now here's the good part.... The way I ran out from office.... :oP

My eyelids were burning and all, and I could'nt take it any longer see.... After having taken all that for a while, I decided that enuff was enuff and I went to my boss, carefully accentuated my droopy eyes and said "Sir, just look at me, I'm dying, should I put that on the company tab or shall I just go home and let my family take responsibility?

He looked up from his papers n' stuff and then he laughed like he'd been bitten by some mad dog for a while, then told me to wait in his office for a bit. I musta waited for about ten mins or so, and finally, he comes back with some papers, tells me to give them a read and then maybe, if I had some good, workable comments on them, he'd let me go.

So I start reading this stuff and dead as I am, I fall asleep half way through. :)

I have no clue as to how long I was out cold, but he wakes me up after a bit, and tells me that I was asleep. At first I'm quite embarrassed and try to gather my wits about me, but I fail miserably. So finding nothing else of decent grounding to do, I tell him "See, is'nt that a good enough comment for the report?" To this, he laughed boomingly, throwing the occupants of the nearby offices out of their chairs, and I could see a few heads bobbing over the cubicle walls.

After a while of this eccentric chortling, he turns on his PC.... While it's booting up, he's staring at the screen and every now and then, he'd burst out into these tiny little giggles. Finally, he says "okay, you really wanna go home?" I say "Yeah, but not to sleep, I wanna go home and have a good time."

After a little bit of watching his teeth chew off the tips of his mustache for about half a minute or so, he finally says "Okai, thanx for the feedback but do come again tomorrow."


That was my high point today. :o)

This story would never have gotten here if it was'nt for datempest's insistence on my sharing it with you all. She was the first person I spoke to after getting back from work. Come to think about it, She has been the only person to have spoken to me after I got back! (Hint!-Hint! Where are all my friends?)

Any way, She got her wish as in I shared this with you,
My readers got their wish as in I gave them something crappy to read,
I got my wish as in I got to tell my friends that they're not doing much to save their souls. :oP
And everyone else got their wish as in they found a happy me today. :o)

Staying Godlike,

do i blush coz u mentioned me or do i smile coz ur happy???

yeah really interesting story and nice way to get to the boss... not to mention( if u were in dubai) nice way to get your sorry sleepy arse outta da office premises for good!!!

but when u told me the story online i couldnt stop laughing ( maybe ur boss and i share some sorta mental bonding.... i think the mad dog bit me too)

If i was laughing at you boss'es weird reaction or at you totally outrageous comments is another thing altogether.. but i do hope every time he sees you he doesnt laugh his lungs out( which could very well be the case)

Nice to see your day went into a riot of laughter... and you mentioning me the way you did is a little itty bitty fishy... trying to throw strong mints ooppss hints at the public kya????

All in all, definitely Godlike

I think you blush cause I mentioned you and I think you smile cause I'm happy. :o)

Actualy, even in India, I'd have gotten my sorry sleepy arse outa da office for good. But you see, sometimes, people can't fire their infrastructure without causing a company whose net worth is 6 million US dollars to crumble and stink at the CEO's feet. :o)

Okai, I'm exaggerating, it won't crumble, but it'll be the staret of a new tectonic era for them, they'd maybe recover from the loss of me, but right now for instance, they take the better part of my actual income, about 78% goes into the companys account. I'm left with a miserable slice, but what the heck, they lose me, they lose 78% of the income that I theoretically generate. :oP

Yeah, hints are a part and parcel of every statement I make to the public. :o)

Kaydeeyoh, Yeah!!
