Corporate life - Part I


"Sam!", kaadu shouted desperately trying to gather attention from our SQL tutor . Sam took us through a brutal week of training .We went topic to topic at rapid pace. Kaadu found it real hard .He hadnt even heard it till Aug 3rd 10:59 AM.

Kaadu is a good friend from college is like they say a jolly good fellow etc.,etc., always grinning and making fun of guys, the final year saw girls inducted into his victims hall of fame. What singled out kaadu was his unquenchable thirst for irritating and playing pranks on people. He had just managed through the 8 long semesters of engineering with a decent agre. Although he had taken up trical, he hadnt had the slightest idea bout wat the hell was going on all through the four years. He just attended classes for the sake of attendance and scrammed for few days before the exam. Obviously everthing he had learnt was flushed out minutes after the exam. I guess most of us in the engineering student community are a bit like that. Somethings never change, I still remember like yesterday, cramming for the placements apti luckily for me and kaadu placements had gotten over as soon as it started. We got placed just in the second company. I a lot of luck i guess!

Here we are together sitting in the cold training room of this huge MNC. Just a week of having worked here I already have a list of things I hate

1. The practice of switching off the AC in the afternoon

2. The soggy burnt rice pancakes disguised as Masala Dosa

3. The way Sam goes on from topic to topic only stopping to say "Any doubts till now", while we are wondering "What did he explain in the previous topic?"

4. I find it absurd that everybody can be nice to everybody. "Hello! At least somebody is faking".

5. The practice of "employees" to use lifts to move between a single floor, while the building has ten floors

6. The assignments and training that has left all of us gasping for air, week ends and not to mention sleep.

..To be continued
