A new job isn’t just about getting to know new people and learning new techniques. It seems to be about acquiring a new lifestyle altogether. This seems especially true in case of NB(Naya bachcha), whose first job this is, after college.

That’s not even counting his phone line which is always ringing…apparantly the whole world and their brother want to talk to the new employee!

SNC: Finances ho to shambles mein honge na! My account is totally khaali!

Or if he has several. Or a boyfriend. Or several. […]
