Well, I also did not do nothing much.

Can you believe, I did not go for a movie for the last 2 weeks. Anyhow, there was no movie worth watching.

I activated GPRS on my mobile, so yesterday entire day, I was with my mobile only.

What was the problem with you?

Vairy phunnee…actually I had a pizza from dominoes the previous day. No one else fell sick though so it must have been some snack I had on the weekend…I’d been eating out all during this shifting.

No plans as yet…been too busy. How about during the week? If there’s any movie worth watching, I can book at the tickets on my way.

Ya I remember. You and SFOS had pizza from dominos when we had from the canteen.

This might be the consequence of not joining us.

I am going out of town on Friday. As for the movie, I am ready anytime. I can never say no. I want to see ”The Interpreter” and “War of the Worlds”.

Dear Mr.S N C,

Thank you for your feedback. However, a good practice deserves to be put into practice. Maybe some day this correspondence will be quoted in ‘Company Best Practices’. I would strongly urge you to follow this norm too.

Thanking you,

With regards,
IdeaSmith

5 thoughts on “Inter-office etiquette”
  1. how do you pronounce “etiquette”… if it phonetically sounds like ATKT, i neither have etiquette nor do i have ATKT…

    the only etiquette that we have in our office is calling every senior as “sir”, regardless of whether the caller is respecting the callee or not… i hate these etiquettes…

  2. Its a similar funda you know…

    If you practise etiquette, you’ll still have a job tomorrow (where u can continue practicising!). As regards ATKT…you know that means ‘aaj thoda, kal thoda’…
