Well that week turned out to be pretty hectic , running around for little errands . And by now ,I was frustrated by taking leaves because everytime I say i am at home , all I get is a big list of errands and cobwebs to clean ...... . I just motivated myself saying its for the anniversary and chugged along doing them .
The anniversary day did arrive , and boy was it hectic , going up and down , giving smiles to people whom i have never met in the distant past .Worse all the people kept saying in some melancholy stretchy south indian tone .... you have grown big ,"I saw you when you were ths small" . Drove me nuts ,dont people grow !!
The celebrations did end well and had some time to catch up with my cousin ,had some plas in my head on probabaly going out for dinner or some thing . For me its more about the time i spend wih my family rather than the food in this case . Ahem not that I dont care about food..
But that wasnt to happen ,but yep I did get some time after all .
The next evening they were to leave for Bangalore again ,and usually they would say come over to bangalore,but somehow things never meterialised that way . and I said , I will come over.
Would that happen ? Would I go to Bangalore soon ? Hmm . this time I decided the next long weekend I will go . When and which long weekend was the question ? .
The following Monday , I hit office after a gap of 5 days the weekend pus 2 of my leaves taken .It seemed like ages since I had been to office .
Things seemed preety ordinary and lazy and I was trying my best to show that i had some work . That wasn the case , as my manager called me to his desk and said , Shyam there is still no important work and you are still high on leaves . so go on vacation again .
I was like ..what!!! and said that I cant be just sent on leave ,I want to choose my leaves . Then he says llright but you gte to choose only one day out of the 2 alloted to you . My head whirred into action and like on leave eh ...Friday ! . I asked for the friday and noticed that it was heavily blocked by people with leaves .Well they say be good to managers always and sure , that helps , he just removed on the other guys fridays leave and allocated to me .
I stretched it a liitle bit and asked , can I go an hr early on Thursday , and he said yes . By this time , The Temporary itinery in my head for the Bangalore trip was sealed . Next step make it true .
Got my tickets booked for the Thursday Overnighter .
This post ends here .Rest in my next one . Well actually too lazy to continue writing and besides I thought its worthwhile to mention about the Trip one a dedicated post to it . .
See you folks till next time ....
