How many B – school grads does it take to fix a projector?
Twenty to strategize, advise and attempt; one IT support person to actually fix it.
One day, twenty of us had assembled in the conference room for a presentation. For a long time, we were unable to commence the presentation because the projector didn’t seem to be working. The twenty of us devised different strategies and “envisaged implementing a varied set of solutions” to fix the projector. At that precise moment, a lady from the IT Support Team walked in and removed the protective heat absorbing glass from the focusing lens.
When friends get together, lay offs, the impact of recession and the ‘worst is over’ phenomenon put together take the first place, with an extended gossip on the current relationship status of various people we know taking second place. If we have a little bit of time left amidst discussions on who attended the alumni meet and who is looking at quitting, we talk about what is happening in our lives too.
When colleagues get together, not the dominant but the only thing we do is crib. And, the fact that we are not the only ‘miserable ones’, as we think of ourselves to be, makes the meeting so much more sweeter.
The quote is not mine, and I am NOT going to go romping all over the internet trying to figure out the ‘Source:’ to be included in Arial, Italics, Font Size 8 at the end of this post. The content is not going to change either ways. If I am going to actually tell the emperor that he is naked, I would be branded a dim – wit and banished from the kingdom forever, as I am not an Emperor. Period.
