Bangalore bandh and sleepless jokes....

Well, since there is a Bangalore Bandh today, we were asked to come into office very early today. Hmm, I have always only heard of bandhs starting off at 9 in the mornings. However, this time, it was different in the sense where it starts off at 6 and ends at 6 in the evening. Insane, yeah I thought so too. Well, a bandh itself is crazy. So we were asked to come in early...as early as 5 in the morning. And in order to facilitate this, we had our pickups fixed at times between 4 and 4:30 in the morning. And for that to happen, the cab driver gives us calls at 3:15!!! Man, I was feeling so pissed off that I woke up, decided to go by cab, then went back on the original plan of going by bike. By this time, I couldn't get back to sleep, so stayed up and watched TV and then called up Adel who was coming by bike with me. We were warned by so many people not to take the bike, but sweet sleep is better than that!. So got off and here we were in office, too damn early but still no problems. Did nothing except listen to music and here I am, working my ass off and feeling really sleepy. Good thing this time, they did arrange for lunch and breakfast. We had only breakfast for which I chose a very safe looking bread-egg-sandwich. The other options were gruelly looking curd-rice, uppuma, and something else equally gross looking.

Heres where the jokes started, all due to lack of sleep. A friend loudly announces, "Man, this is like a Nazi boot-camp!!. They take a spoonfull of crap and put it on your plate - "!Pachakk!!".."....haha, that still cracks me up...

Then when going on the elevator, Abhi asks, dude whats this "Alarm" button for. We both made this up - "Its when the elevator announces in totally Tamil accented Tenglish that you have reached your floor and have to fucking get off - NOW!!"...

Lastly, on another break, we walk past this team that seems to be doing nothing and Abhi asks, what the team does. I reply, "Its the Orkut maintenance team"...

Damn, I am sure they are horrible, drink up ppl.....
