I am just asking for a coffee

These guys at office are scoundrels, who help us get coffee or tea.

It so happens that the owner of our co. is so kanjoos... he allows to serve only tea. Well, that is hot water, with tea flavour. This is brewed in the mottai maadi at office, near the toilets. Kanraavi. 2 litres of milk, serves the entire office. Imagine how much water is used!

All I am asking is coffee, can they get some milk and some instant coffee powder.

I cant just walk out to that small petty shop outside office, now that I am a Manager, guys look at me differently, cannot stop them giggling though.

Also there is a problem of involuntarily picking up the biskat or bajji or bonda, whatever is on display under the polythene paper. Adds to the weight.

I was well under weight at Coimbatore, after I moved for a short while to be with parents at Coimbatore..... 2001 to 2002 was very nice.

Well things ended short, sort of working for less in a startup and earning more... the owner is a very decent person and taught me everything about how to execute projects. Worth for the money I didnt earn... sor tof less compared, but better than most co's there. I even got a parting gift of Rs 25,000/- from the owners pocket, and an expresso machine (just 9 months old), that is still being used at home.... (I just use the regular Bru coffee powder to get the Italian taste)

Now all I am asking is ... just... COFFEE!

Culture Custodians at Chennai

I was talking to a friend who lives in the Asha Deep Apartments, Chennai (near Egmore railway station) where 2 guys staying in a 2 Bedroom apartment were troubled by the non owners (Apartment Association head and the wife) for bring in 2 girls friends form work (they stay at Jayanti working women's hostel, which is walking distance, and the BPO van picks all these folks at one point 6 PM everyday), for 15 minutes or so. That too, was instigated by 2 guys, who were watching (Sena rowdies? or MMC new hostel guys?) from outside daily. This has been a regular habit for them to get into arguments it seems.

I despise educated youth being Culture Custodians at Chennai or Moral Police!

Read from a newspaper on an activist (Rehane, Fashion Designer) outburst... but well said.

I sometimes feel sad for these self-appointed custodians of morality. They need to get a life, lighten up and find a occupation. Otherwise, they'll only belong to the party pooper ranks!

I know beloved blogger community would went the anger in different way!

But I am going to help my friend to do Black Magic to go against the trouble makers in that complex, at 5 AM with a goats head. Normal methods don't work for such folks. You have to ensure that they get into depression.... And the law cannot punish for doing it (they need direct linking proof, than just intention alone)! Just kidding!
