Seems your mood is not good. Meet you later. Everything is Gone…! Hike is gone.. Girl is gone.. Nothing is left..! :’-( What happened Abhi? Why are you so irritated? My Life is gone Chaitu.. What? Today, there was an Appraisal meeting with Manager at office Means.. It’s a discussion with Manager on my performance during the last 1 year at work. As per my performance and output at work, they will revise and fix salary during this meeting. So, you must have done well as you are always working.. that’s the MISTAKE, I did.. Why Situation has become so worst.. 🙁 In my Appraisal meeting.., that worst fellow… I mean.. My Manager has screwed me up.. 🙁 He has put peanuts in my hand and asked me to stay happy! Ohh.. Is it? Also, that girl (Indu).. Gave me a BIG Shock.. What did she do? It’s her marriage..! She bounced me with her looks and smile.. but finally got to know that I was fooled.. My foot..!! If not she, somebody else.. Anyways.. these things are quite common for me.. Leave about her.. But My Manager….!!!! He has made me to work like a dog for the whole year and gave peanuts as hike.. It’s bad time.. But.. got to know many things today.. I lost respect on IT companies.. All other companies are same.. right? Almost similar. My collegemates from other companies also tell me the same.. OMG…! He is not Manager… Manipulator He says.. Ours is a team and we do team work. From outside, we look like working together as a team.. But, actually we fight internally.. And We term it as “Team Work” You mean… Instead of weapons, you guys use feelings and emotions to fight.. Here, external decency is more important than internal politics.. Our hearts are not as good as our dresses.. Here, Everything is artificial including smile, sadness, even hunger and thirst too. Don’t feel bad Abhi.. It’s not feeling, It’s frustration.. You are like an odd man in a group worst people.. So, I suggest you to change.. What? As just like others? No.. Change the group That’s what I am doing.. I applied for 2 jobs… I have an interview tomorrow.. Have food and sleep well.. This fellow doesn’t have anything other than food and sleep!!! tell dude.. Heya.. Shall we have drinks? Yeah.. Bar or Home.. anywhere is OK.. 🙂 Is night OK for you? You come first, we will decide.. Hmm.. When..? Friday Night? OK dude.. done! Lets meet then.. Bye! Is it.. 🙂 ? See.. what will I do now.. 😀 It’s my time now!! You cannot stop me..! Decision is final.. Don’t try to stop me.. No one has need and No one is dependent on you here.. you can carry on.. I didn’t like the environment here.. IT environment will be same as here, anywhere you go.. But, Manager like you won’t be there.. Sorry.. (With respect) – Manager like you won’t be there.. Don’t mix more soda.. OK OK enough.. stop.. Now tell Bro.. How are you? I am fine buddy.. What happened to you? You look like a skeleton.. What to tell bro.. 🙁 It’s all due to pressure Work pressure and Manager Pressure at Office.. Oh.. Do you so much work pressure? Too much bro.. :’-( Ohh.. Is it? I put down my papers already.. got an offer in an other company.. Ohh.. already resigned..? Kool..! Hope everything will be OK there.. Good Luck! But whenever I listen to the word “Manager”, I am getting irritated bro.. It will take minimum a week to describe the word “Manager” The most dangerous word in English dictionary is “Manager” Though I do everything and anything he asks for…. He always says “you are not up to my expectation” Everyone in our team got good hike except me..! See.. now I will explain you How a Manager will be with an example In the initial days, he says.. you need to run/ bend whenever required.. For that, you reply ‘Yes’ to him Then, he says.. as you already agreed.. see how it looks if you run/bend.. Then you will immediately bend/run.. Then Manager says.. as you are already bent/ running.. necessity may come anytime.. please continue.. in the same position Now, If you get backache and if you try to deviate from bending/ running position.. And even.. If you deviated from the agreed position.. Then the Manager says.. ‘you are not upto my expectation, you are not listening to me’ That’s the matter! you are correct bro.. you explained me very nicely.. Perfect Exactly bro.. Same thing happened for me too.. That’s what! In the initial days itself, If you clearly tell him.. ‘I cannot bend/ run.. Do whatever you want’ He thinks.. your presence itself is great Then.. If you bend/run even once when there is an urgent need or help.. He will become so happy for that.. Bro.. You are super.. Hey.. Sit down.. These things are very common in IT companies.. There are few words which explains the concept of bend/run example… Those are.. Pro-activeness, People skills, Diplomacy, Resource utilization, etc. You just need to go along, managing all these things without compromising.. If not Rambabu.. someother babu.. He is not your uncle or father-in-law to think and worry about him always.. You are super bro.. I will tell you one thing.. Remember this.. !!**!!** Telugu Saying**!!**!! !!**!!** Telugu Saying**!!**!! Similarly, When an engineer works under a Manager.. the manager feels like the engineer working under him is a slave.. Understood? You are God bro..! Where is he? Hey stand up.. I will follow as you said in the new company.. You are super bro.. Thanks bro.. Follow as I told you.. You will grow in career! Thanks bro.. What is this darkness in the new company? Ohh.. lights are there.. OK Restroom first.. Manager meet next! I should go for a round to watch beauties in this new company.. Let’s meet manager first.. Lets complete this now.. Ah? Sir.. [email protected]#@#$ how come are you here?????????? Complete and come out.. we will talk.. Why did he come here? How did he come here? 🙁 Sir.. How come are you here? I already told you Abhi.. that you cannot escape from this IT environment which is same in any company.. 😀 See Abhi.. Change in company wont give you reduction in weekdays or increased weekends! Won’t you leave me..?? :’-( :’-( Yess granny.. tell Shani period for me????? I am experiencing it here.. 🙁 OK, I will talk to you later. Ufff… Won’t he leave me? What is this life..!?????? Do you work and butter your manager.. If you don’t agree for buttering.. then don’t think of the result!
