1)A Lady can make eyebrows raise and get attention and appreciation from people seated in every nook and corner of the floor when she steps in dressed well.....On the same day a guy chooses to walk in well dressed for a client presentation.....askance looks follow him and he is asked "Sanju,fancy dress competition today huh?"

2) When a clientele comes in, the team welcomes them..The team lead or may be the most handsome guy among the lot gives a summary of what is done and how the process goes,but the clients keep smiling and ogling at all the girls around even while the dude here struggles to give his best possible briefing!!!

3) Briefing over…..The Client blurts a statement and chuckles while the rest of the team bellow a hearty laugh although puzzled and confused about the "multi crore VVIP" joke....least realizing that it was his way of expressing his downright sarcasm about the process that was followed....it happens and that too very subtly!!:)

4) Never ending conference calls are always dealt with hate and abhorrence …the saddest part is when nature's call strikes you hard at the climax of the call…the only option would be to put the phone on mute…run to the loo,ease, get back and then blare an excuse..”oops I was on mute”...and then update on the issue !!

5)Breaks are taken only to bitch about others!!! Managers about reportees and reportees about managers and peers!! And few noseys join only the managers for breaks…This is mainly to give false inputs about his/her own team mates and hype about his/her contribution and how the customer appreciated him last night for being connected till midnight….but why did he connect till midnight? Did he actually have work? Well every one knows!!!

6)When a company's policy says an internal movement happens only if he/she has completed 18-24 months in a specific team …few(like the ones I mentioned above-Break mates) move from one role to another in 6 months!! Gosh..rest of them remain in the same team for years slogging ..poor souls…!!!…


7) Another important activity is to add all the clients that he or she supports in orkut or face book accounts ..and keep updating status messages some what similar to this

"Gosh been working since 48hrs now...I still love it!! :)"

Isn't it a clever exclamation to make them feel that this particular “orkuteer or face booker” is the only one slogging..and the next day this he/she is blessed with a long appreciation mail!!! What an idea Sirji!!!


8) At the performance review meeting the manager dutifully remembers the little that you’ve not done, and conveniently forgets the bulk that you have achieved…... to cap it all he then tries to convince you that his break mates are better than you!Few dumbos do get convinced!!!

9) Some smarties are known for delegating work to poor new joinees who struggle to win acclaim as they are newbies…On the pretext of training the newbies the gentlemen get their work done by these poor souls and find their way up to the wall of fame without shedding a drop of sweat! Smart guys....some are born great and meritorious, some achieve greatness and merit and some have greatness and merit thrust upon them....our guys fall in the third category

Well I stop with 9 !!..but would love to know more of such interesting facts..
still investigating and the trail goes on.....…
