To all LATE SITTERS !!!!
To all late sitters
This is a fwd….i should be the last person sending this out…but what theheck..read it…….!!!!
An interesting article on people, who stay back in the office after workinghours
It’s half past 8 in the office but the lights are still on..PCs still running, coffee machines still buzzing..and whose at work..Most of them?? Take a closer look.. All or most specimens are 20-something male/female species of the human race..look closer..again all or most of them are bachelors..and why are they sitting late? Working hard? No way!!
Any guesses?? lets ask one of them..Here’s what she says..”Arey yaar, whatz here do after goin home..idhar to net hein, AC hein, phone hein, khaana hein, coffee hein.. to jam ke khaao, jam ke piyo(burps), jam se chatting/phone karo aur thak jaane par ghar jaao…aur boss bhi kush that I am workinglate…(burps) aur khaane ka paisa bhi bachtaa hein.”
This is the scene in most companies and offices. Bachelors “time-passing” during late hours in the office just bcoz they say they’ve nothing else to do..Now what r the consequences.. read on…”working”(for the record only) late hours soon becomes part of the company culture. With bosses more than eager to provide support to those “working” late in the form of taxi vouchers, food vouchers and of course good feedback,(oh, he’s a hardworker..goes home only to change..!!) they arent helping things too..To hell with bosses who dont understand the difference between “sitting” late
and “working” late!! Very soon, the managers start expecting all employees to put in extra working hours.
My dear Bachelor bhaais let me tell you, life changes when u get married and start having a family..office is no longer a prioroty, family is..and thats when the problem starts.bcoz u start having commitments at home too. For your boss, the earlier “hardworking” guy suddenly seems to become a “early leaver” even if u leave an hour after regular time..after doing the same amount of work, People leaving on time after doing their tasks for the day are labelled as work-shirkers..Girls who thankfully always leave on time are labelled as “not up to it”. All the while, the bachelors pat their own backs and carry on “working” not realising that they r spoiling the work culture at their own place and never realise that they wuld have toregret at one point of time.
So bhaai log, what’s the moral of the story.?? Very clear, LEAVE ON TIME!!
Never put in extra time unless really needed. Dont stay back un-necessarily and spoil your company work culture which will in turn cause inconvenience to you and your colleagues. There are hundred other things to do in the evening.. Learn music..Learn a foreign language..Try go-karting… Get a girl friend, take her around town. And for heaven’s sake net cafe rates have dropped to an all-time low(plus, no fire-walls) and try cooking for a change. Take a tip from the Smirnoff ad: “Life’s calling, where are you??”
