Weird guys and things in an elevator

Since we all work in high storey buildings, we are often used to these elevators. So obviously everyone might have encountered these things while you are in an elevator 😀 (P.S: Ground Floor guys just skip this article :D:P)

Loners:

Some of you guys, wants that particular lift to be their own. (Even I do that sometimes. :P) When you are in a hurry, you go inside as fast as you can and immediately press the close button. You might even kick it so hard till it closes. 😀 But, lift doors are not as speed as your reflexes. 😀

The most embarrassing moment is when you close the door at the face of somebody they will press the button outside and it opens again. And they will come inside and look at you up and down. And what do we do? Since we do not have anything inside to escape. We stare at the Lift buttons until they get down in their floor :D. (I know that feeling too ;-( )

Speakers:

Yup the Loudmouths in an elevator. Persons in the lift will be going through “Inner Peace” until these speakers arrive. They talk about everyone in their team. And everybody will be listening to those stories. And speakers do not mind. You should be watching your back. Coz you don’t know the people in the lift might also be related to the one you speak about. 😀 (Hope this silences them)

Mozarts:

They are the ones with headphones like Sony, Skullcandy, Bose etc. They are service minded people. They are like “Let everyone listen to my song” and some even feel like “I am the one who brings peace to everyone’s mind in that lift” Sometimes it’s awkward because you are not familiar with that song. And if the song is awesome then, the girl/man will be getting down soon in another floor. And what do we do. We go to our cabin and download that song immediately. The worst part is whether it’s a good song or the one you hate, it gets stuck inside your head. You will be humming it or singing the same song for the entire day.

The Smokers:

I know you are well stressed and so you go out and take a puff or two. That’s your problem. That doesn’t mean, you should come in like Thuppaki Vijay.

(P.S: You’re not cool like that poster). You guys make everyone uncomfortable in the elevator. And please keep your Tumerous friend to your lungs. We do not have any intentions, to take them into our lungs.

Weird things that happens in a lift is,

When you are in  hurry, getting late for cab/bus and press that button you will be hearing that “Ding” sound a lot and none of the lift arrives. But those lifts keep on Dinging. And we will be there like :'(.

And when one lift comes in and you are the only person to get into that, you will be the happiest persons in your life. But there comes a twist. And that stupid lift stops at each and every floor till you reach the ground floor. (Is this a lift or a Town bus?) And thanks to that lift, you should be running like Usain Bolt to catch your cab/bus.

Any other weird/funny thing that has happened to you? Please comment and share 🙂

5 Types of Attitudes in a Team

You know Attitude matters a lot, especially if you are working in a team. Here are the 5 major types of attitudes in a team.

The Missy Miss perfect:

You can guess by the name.  These will be ladies most of the time and in rare occasions gents. He/She is the one who is happy during appraisal times and makes you uncomfortable that you are the only one who doesn’t work in a team. Her/His work is so perfect that is impossible to find a glitch. He/She has a format in her head and everything should be proceeded by that. (IT Hitler, might be a correct name to put it :P). And you can see the frustrations on his/her face if she added an extra space in preparing a document. At the start we find them amazing and inspirational. After a while we get the headaches if we are put together in the same team. It’s a little tough to cope up with them.

The Know It All:

He/She typically knows everything technically, functionally in a project level. Sometimes they show off and sometimes they don’t. They have a lot of information. Pretty interesting people. And if they don’t know something any event that’s happening in and around the building, the event doesn’t exist.

Mister Cool:

This is a rare species found in a team. Anything happens he/she will always try to be cool. These species tend to possess the rarest of the rare abilities “The Common Sense” :O (And some of us will be like “OMG! Is that a certification? Is it internal or external certification? Is it valuable?) When encountered an issue, he/she thinks ahead.

The Super excited Kinder Gardner:

Mostly, freshers will fall under this category. They get super excited about works at the start. They plan their life ahead. It will be fun watching because we did the same thing when we were freshers. And look at us now. 😀 (Just Kidding.. You are awesome too). Well don’t worry its just a phase you are going through. If this excitement of yours is consistent, then you will be great in no time.

The Simbu:

And for those who doesn’t know Simbu. He is the “Father of Controversies in Kollywood” (Google Beep Song Controversies to get to know him better :P). And because of this attitude, his career at Kollywood is difficult. Its like Saturn God’s home is literally is at his tongue. We know Politics exists everywhere. 😀 But these guys can’t handle those. And when he/she opens their mouth to speak, Saturn God starts to dance. He offends someone intentionally/unintentionally. You can get a Pop corn bucket during appraisal times, if you want to see an action packed entertainer. (Pity the managers)

If I have missed any other attitudes, please enter in the comments below. Have a Happy Moday!! Keep Smiling 🙂 (Ya like that)

Which Driver should you trust on Roads?

You can relate to this post if you own a vehicle.

So we all know that (inside our heads) we are really safe and we are the best drivers in the world. 😀 Some of us, assume that we are like Jason Statham from Transporter. (Actually we are not). This article helps you in clearing the mind off whom you cannot trust when you are driving a vehicle.

A. The one with Big Trucks/Containers/Busses:

Clearly the drivers of these huge vehicles are tired dragging these big things all over the city. And they have a lot of time constraints with their arrival/delivery. There are several blind spots for big trucks.

Wondering What’s a Blind Spot?

For those whom you wonder what’s a blind spot, (To put it simple) it’s the spot where you are blind. We do not posses the ability to rotate the eyes and heads to check everywhere like Chameleons and Owls. We are humans.

We are blind in some spots while driving. Not only the driver should be aware of the blind spots. Everyone should know where to, and where not to drive a vehicle. Highways are most dangerous than heavy trafficked roads. Better watch where you go.

These are the “No Zones” while there’s a truck on road.

Blind Spot

B. Car Drivers:

Some car drivers assume they are the “Pilots” and go at a speed where everyone gets an heart attack (The ones inside the Car as well as the vehicles that are on road) If you can assume their faces deep down inside, it would be somewhat like this.

Car Drivers

While some of them irritates with their “L” Boards and “Baby on Board” sticker signs. (Bullock carts are much more faster than your car). Yes I know you are driving safe, respecting all rules and such stuff. At least leave the way for the people coming behind. Do not Irritate them. 😀

C. Share Autos/Autos:

This is a fact. “Never Ever Trust an Auto/Share Auto” (that too if you’re a Chennaite). You can never guess what he thinks in his head. If you can relate vehicles to persons, then definitely Share Autos/Autos are Psycho Mad Killers on Loose. 😀 (Warning: Do not Approach them)

D. Bikers:

If we start on this topic, its going to be endless. Yes we all know bikes have the most advantage since you can drive even in the narrowest way present. Just because of that one particular reason, doesn’t mean you should be making all the people angry. I always wonder, how and in what way does this heavy traffic look like a fun Video game??? Zig Zagging all the stupid possible ways. Like Video Games you do not have another life. (Think about it)

And I think that those who have these big racing bikes and bullets often assume that “All the road’s a Racing ground”. And there are people who have fancy horn sounds. Some are cute, while some honk the life out of us. 😀 You don’t need to see these bikers, because hearing these kinda bike sounds gives a heart attack.

So the point made is never trust anyone on roads 😀 , because you can never guess what can happen. Keep your eyes wide open and drive safe. 🙂

P.S : Do Not Drink N D(r)i(v)e

Paranormal Diaries #3

Parvathy was a strange kid at the school.

As we played she sat in the corner watching us. It felt a little weird every day, until I had the guts to talk about this to her.

“Heyyy you, Why are you watching us? If you want to play come and join us”

She was so happy and her eyes lit up and she said “So you can see me?”

Paranormal Diaries #2

I was late for my night shift and Dan has already called me twice.

I forgot my booze that day. Luckily Dan had some left over in his bottle.

As we drank together that night, we realized that the booze was a little weak and the cries in the mortuary were a little louder than it used to be.

Paranormal Diaries #1

It was my first night at the hospital. I was on my rounds.

A little girl bumped into me “Hey there, why aren’t you sleeping?”

She looked at me, with a smile and said “I am” and ran along.

Then I remember the warning that my fellow colleagues had given me about the east wing.

Difference between a Boy & Man (55F)

All the boys at office laughed at the man, as he said

“Sorry guys can’t join the party. Have loads of work. Must pick up my kids from school and get the groceries”
