Cubicle Crushes :)



Software offices aren't exactly meant to be the fountain of life!! The eerie glow of the CFL lighting and the ambient hum of the PC's makes you kinda zombie-like, if you aren't already bored.  The office walls are bathed in a glowy orange shade, intended to signify the rising sun, thus  motivating the people staring at it. There's that anonymous water cooler at the far-east. Inside the cafeteria, there's a strange contraption with a couple of  extended arms spewing steam, reminiscing the Wild Wild West, some call it as the coffee machine.There are a couple of "Go Green" posters on the walls, from the Admin department. One day I gotta punch that Admin guy [Fightclub-style], if you really mean it, go and do agriculture for God's sake. You take up an agricultural land, evacuate the families whose very living depend on that land, build a 15 storey steel & glass structure which consumes the power of about half a village, then put up some green-coloured-A3 poster with catchy "Save the planet" slogans in the cafeteria and then relax happily about having done your bit to save the environment. We're missing the point somewhere dude!!.  

Aarav..Aarav... Wake up dude.. Enough preaching stuff, you can't change the world :-P. This is what happens when you watch mid-night 'Swades' re-runs in Set-MAX. Now, introduce yourself to others!!. Oh Yeah, Day-dreaming in office again. Sorry Genie. Hi,it's me, Aarav. Chennaiite. Techie. Engineer. Toiling in a SW company, pretty much as expected by my 'traditional' Indian parents. Then.. Genie.. meet the people...and People, this is Genie... A self-righteous, a**-kicking virtual sidekick inspired from & thriving on the early morning 'Calvin & Hobbes' cartoon strips. And we're gonna rock the world and share our exeriences here, Hop-in if you're still interested :-P.


Today is a typical Monday. Back from a weekend and now in the office early as ususal.Most people haven't arrived yet. I donno, somehow these almost identical glass office buildings had made the people working inside them identical too. I can be wrong, but thats what comes first in your mind when you see an Office cab. There's your team with whom you're gonna spend 1/3rd of your life with, if you're not the frequent-job-hopping kind. Whichever Software office you go in, the people are oddly similar in a way you can't fathom much. The office looks like a pack of playing cards, constant set of people with varied hues, all packed up together. Then we have got the fancy Black Jack Bosses to team up the cards and to play the game. Damn, it's so funny to imagine your boss in a Black jack suit ;-).

Who's that guy waving at me?? Oh, thats my Buddy No1, Sits right across in one one of these labyrinth cubicles. Nice guy.

Buddy 1  :  Hey man, how r u? {high five}
Our Guy : am fine dude, how about you? {high five}
Buddy 2  : Hey did you guys watch that <insert new movie title here> ?
Buddy 1 :  Aww, The movie is stuuuupidd, man. 
Genie   : GK Alert - Please notice the number of 'u' & 'd's, their numbers are proportional to the movie's ratings. 
Buddy 1 :   No Story line and the Heroine's Mom looks damn fat, man.
Genie    : Who are you boy? Steven Spielberg?  You watched that movie on a pirated theater print copy and speak like an Oscar Jury and why the hell do you care if the Heroine's Mom look fat... Magane... unakku oru naal irkku da...
Our Guy : {grins} Oh, I see.. Will catch up later dude. Time to work.


Genie : Hey, did you see that new girl in the office?
Our guy: Come on, I'm not interested in girls. You know that. :-D. Ahem.. new girl!! May be she's already committed. Why do most beautiful girls already have a boy friend? This one puzzles me a lot. My mind gets hazy when I think about these!!
