[Bakwaas]~ Middle Finger Megashow!!! :)

mfm聽Click聽on pic to enlarge!

Checkout the pic… These celebrities are showing that they exercised their votes to elect another bunch of jokers who will tickle us above while screwing us down there for the next five years (if they last that long, that is)!!

This pic, courtesy Bangalore Mirror (May 1st edition)聽 – shows Aamir, SRK and Sonam showing that they voted in a strategic manner…while the rest of our “idols” in Aishwarya, Amitabh, John and Vidya show us how our future is actually gonna be!!
Of all, I loved Vidya’s smile and confidence! 馃槈

yedi

The chief minister of Karnataka…took it on the wrong hand (or was this pic, a mirror image??? – cos its on Bangalore Mirror you see!! :P)…

As per the law it is a clear violation…
The law elucidates that the indelible ink mark should be put on the left-hand index finger . If that finger is not there then the ink will be put on left-hand middle finger. If both the fingers have a problem then the mark will be put on the left-hand elbow. Further, if that has a problem then the mark will be put on the shoulder of the left-hand .

Whatever it is….We now know what the future has in store for us!!! 馃榾

Of IT, recession, exploitation, BPO and threat! sigh..

Well…as you all know it is recession times indeed…and every optimist would say…this is the time to raise from the dead, to cash in on the low economy, to test your basic strategies…but its also that time, which can be misused in the name of cost cutting, strategy change, innovative employment, et al.
This is the time where pink slips are being distributed as if it were Diwali bonus or something…But this is also the time when in IT companies, freshers (people without experience) are being exploited as they have no other option but to聽oblige.

Check out聽the mail below聽which a leading IT service company has聽sent to its future employees who were campus recruited in regions like West Bengal, Andhra Pradesh and the North Eastern states.
PS: I will聽not name the company…mainly cos either聽you know the name or rather will聽get to know as you read.

The letter dated 25th Nov. 2008 is as below (unedited except for the name)! 馃槈

Asking to join a BPO??? WTF…

Pay is unchanged I heard, but you’ll know only after you join…

BTW, why should the bond period of 15 months be agreed upon for a BPO…you can instead join any other BPO without or with a lesser bond period (and without paying upfront)!

“Can be moved to”…is a dangerous corporate term, my friends….its not as simple as it may seem when you read. It would be synonymous to “Let’s see later about that…” 12-18 months after you join.

And believe me, these 12-18 months of anticipation for a move to the technologies would be the worst period if you are a technically inclined person. And it would by all means lead to depression if things don’t go the way you have been anticipating after those 12-18 months…have seen this happen, so beware…

//(within 24hrs * 7days)// What does this mean??? Sickos…

“If you decline this offer or do not respond…..” – this shows how they are exploiting the freshers by threatening them – jump into fire or no food situation- and hence exploiting the situation.

I would say, before any of you freshers respond to this – do APPLY your THOUGHTS!! 馃檪

More on this聽OVER HERE…and don’t forget to read the comments over there, could help u make a decision! 馃檪

Now if a crow shits on me…

I was sitting in my box of a cubicle when she pinged me聽on the office communicator. And she started swearing聽at me right from the word go. Now what did I do? Well as far as I know, nothing except accept her damn request to add me on to her friends list. 馃槮

*************************************************************************************************

It’s been almost a month since I’d asked her to stop talking to me, after she kind of became uneasy to be with. Problem with her was her unsatiable expectations. They never seemed to have an end. She thought of herself as this innocent angelic one from up above, who just wouldn’t bite even if I’d put my thumb into her mouth. Problem is, she still thinks so. After I told her to stay away from me…that is…not to mail/message/scrap/ping me (we聽did meet just once…thank god it was the last time!!)…she still kept mailing/messaging/scrapping/pinging me!! I took the advice and help of聽a female friend of mine to help her out with her thoughts/emotions/whatever, just cos I thought she would understand a female better than me. But, when my friend started cribbing to me about how the heroine聽troubled her, I thought it was now time to ask聽her to back off and stay away from me/us. Any sensible聽chick would have done so, but聽our heroine in this real-life-drama had nothing sensible in her. So I wrote a blog-post聽related to聽her a month ago, explaining about how angry I felt over her immature behaviour. She did read that one fine day, thankfully. And that day, she tried calling (I didn’t pick…) me聽2-3 times and then left about 2-3 disturbing (for a normal person) text messages full of angelic swears聽on my cell. I read them, and deleted them in the same order as they had come in. I thought it was done and over. But things never go as I think, do they? Naaahh…

The next working day as I logged into my system in my ever-loony bay, I聽got her request to add me on to her list of contacts on the office communicator. Though surprised, I politely cancelled. The same thing repeated each morning on logging in, for聽the next聽3 weeks. What I thought was – If I cancelled it each time, it would come up everytime I log in fresh into my system. How wrong was I? 馃榾

This Monday, as I was talking to another friend of mine, I happened to explain to her this situation and through her I got to know that a cancelled request does reappear again only and only if the requestor does sends the invite once-again manually, and not automatically due to my cancellation. So I told her that I would accept the request the next time it appeared on my screen. So on Tuesday morning as I logged in, the request re-appeared and I accepted it so that I would not have the trouble to cancel it every morning. And then I forgot about it. Totally.聽

Today noon, as I was sitting in my box of a cubicle she pings me聽on the office communicator. She swears right from the word go. Now what did I do? Well as far as I know (and you now know, too), nothing except accept her damn request to add me on to her friends list.

She pinged on the communicator聽which said something like聽“Can’t you even understand simple English? I told you not to add me on to the communicator. Why did you add? I was not there at my seat and someone accepted your request and now the horrible part is that I cannot remove聽your name聽from my list.”

I laughed out loud (in the mind ofcourse) at what she wrote. The fact that someone accepted it on her behalf was first聽of all,聽funny…and that I was now like a virus/bug on her communicator list, was even more funny!! A simple click on the delete button can remove my name, if you want to that is!! YOU DUMB MORON!!! Just do it and don’t trouble the network support guys to take care of聽your stupidity!! 馃榾

I blocked her on the communicator (should have done it long back, I know),聽but she didn’t just let it go.聽Instead聽she copy-pasted the same contents in a mail and mailed it across to me.

I replied to her mail saying “I didn’t add you on or send you a request. Ask the person who accepted it as to why he/she did that!! If you don’t want to聽be in contact with聽me, then please do not reply to this mail! Stop bugging me like this.”

Now any sane gal would not have replied cos anyways she didn’t want me to talk to her. But our heroine, isn’t even in the close vicinity of sanity. Sheesh!! And as expected, she replied back with a comparitively longer swear. I don’t remember the contents as such, but the fact that she replied…said it all.

The funda here is that…when she swore at me in the messages, she didn’t get to see any聽reaction from my end as I didn’t bother to reply. So she kept stalking me online by sending requests to add me on. She knew that some day or the other, I would have to accept her request to stop her from bugging me. And I happened to do just that, not anticipating anything like this. She waited for three full days to聽go by,聽after I accepted her request to bombard at an unsuspecting me. My guess is that she wanted to see how I would react. The fact that I blocked her first on the communicator and then replied in 2-3 straight lines, pissed her even more. Hmmm…

Now if a crow shits on me, the maximum I would do is swear once at the crow and then just wipe the shit off me and walk away…and definitely not go chasing the crow to shit on it. Same logic applies with this insanity-personified heroine of my life. Hmmph!!聽

Wish her a speedy recovery. Amen! 馃檪

Sathyam Cinemas & Inox Movies – Damn you…go to hell!!!

Since last two weeks I had been waiting for this day to arrive…cos it was today early morning that the tickets to the movie, Jaane tu ya jaane na was supposed to be opened for sale. So as yesterday’s night extended into the early hours of today I was logged into the websites of two “famous” multiplexes of Chennai….Sathyam Cinemas and Inox Movies.聽 Both disappointed me in their own stupid ways. 馃槮
I was awake till 1:00 am waiting for some miracle to happen and for the schedule to be opened for online booking. I went to sleep, when there were no signs of any upgradation on any of these sites.
I was up again early in the morning…and logged into these damn stupid websites. Sathyam and Inox didn’t actually deserve, me doing all this at the cost of my early morning sleep!! Sickos! 馃槇
The morning newspaper carried advertisements from both Sathyam Cinemas and Inox Movies which had them saying “Booking open” and we were either asked to choose one of the three methods:
1) Book online
2) Book by calling their numbers
3) Book by SMS

And this is what I got when I checked the 2 multiplexes at 8:30am.

Sathyam Cinemas
1) Book online聽 – The site was up fast but there were no schedules from 4th July onwards.
2) Book by calling their numbers – Network was busy…but when it rang, no one picked.
3) Book by SMS – I got a reply SMS saying it didn’t recognise the movie. And it took me 2 msgs to get to know this. It was not toll-free.

Inox Movies/
1) Book online – The site was super fast but there were no shows 4th onwards when it came to Chennai.
2) Book by calling their numbers – Got to hear a network connection failure message each time I tried.
3) Book by SMS – No reply…sent twice…no replies both times…fukced my phone bill again for nothing!

On reaching office, we thankfully had no access to these websites (who wants to see the missing schedules the whole day?)…kept calling unsucessfully both the Sathyam and Inox phone numbers till evening. One blessed soul in Inox picked the call and informed us that online booking would start 6pm onwards (it normally would be 7pm by the time I reach home) but tickets were sold out by the time I checked the site at 6:45pm on reaching home early. Damn!!
Got to know from a friend that tickets at Sathyam, were all sold out for Saturday without them having turned-on the online booking feature. Psychos! Its scheduled now, but what’s the point? 馃槮
Sathyam boasts of its online booking system….but it gets laid and screwed up when in demand. Where and how does it become housefull without a single soul having booked it? I won’t be surprised tomorrow if I would get to lay my hands on one of the booked tickets. 馃槢
Sathyam guys, go to hell!! You suck big time!! iilii

I believe its High Time for other multiplexes to come up…the monotonous hold that these nuts enjoy, has to be broken!!! Hmmph!
