Whoa!!! Finally I reached office...

"Whoa!!! Finally I reached office..."

Let me start at the beginning. The day began with a power cut and I had arouse myself from what seemed to me like midnight (it was 6 in the morn!) from a dream where I was rescuing someone from the last piece of Antarctica which was drowning due to global warming. If you r are saying "Yeah right!", well I cant help it, my dreams are a teeny-weeny bit more fantastic than reality....

For all those people as lazy as I am, for those people who think spending time and money on gym is atrocious and for those people who love being glued to the system 16hrs a day here is my "Idea for the day".... Kick start your vehicle 30 times every single morning, then swear at it and drag it all the way to a vehicle battery repair shop which you discover to your consternation opens only about half an hour after you get there. Of course your Blood pressure will rise to staggering heights and you will feel grumpy the whole day but all that will vanish into thin air when you find out that you have lost 5 kgs that month.

At last your vehicle makes some spurting sounds and springs back to life...but by then its already half an hr late to office(disclaimer: this does not cater to those who go to office everyday at 12). Driving on Chennai or rather Indian roads (with no offence to anyone...) has become an everyday battle of life and death in which life surprisingly ends up winning. It’s no more "survival of the fittest!"...it is merely survival of the luckiest or the biggest on the road....That’s where I lose out. Every time I place my faith in luck....it so totally runs out on me after making faces and laughing its heart out.

"That’s one of the remarkable things about life, it’s never so bad that it can’t get worse" -that line from Calvin totally mirrors life as we know it. Just when all these thoughts are whirling in your head compounded with the misery of seeing the contorted face of your manager, wham!!! you have hit an auto after having scraped though alive by missing a bus that was charging towards you like a mad-bull.

By now you don care who is right coz u jus wanna get on your bike, crank up your accelerator and drive like the wind( or Valentino Rossi, whichever one u prefer) and then

"Whoa!!! Finally I reached office..."

if you thought this was the end....well you r wrong. I had forgotten my purse, cell and ID card which meant effectively going back home, calling in sick, watching TV and a ordering a pizza!!! Peace at last :-)

    Ah.!! Finally Mademoiselle has resorted to writing a blog on mundane things.... Good for a change....

    A nice blog delineating the sufferings of office goers in the hectic traffic day in and out.
    Its true that thought of driving peacefully in chennai traffic is as optimistic as india reaching the semis of the next world cup.
    Especially the motor cylists twisting and sliding like the bends of monte carlo formula1 track. I wonder how the share auto drivers have this feeling that the middle of the road is their parking yard and they can stop there whenever they want irrespctive of the traffic.

    There are some observations i wud like to make about the blog.
    1. Anu never wakes up at 6... Its around 8:30 i guess
    2.She learnt kick starting just a month back... her father used to do that for her till then

    Hey such a nice post and different one again!!Well presented n very funny !! I jus loved it!! (I reckon many of us can relate to dis:-))


    Its true tat fighting the peak-hours traffic has bcum so difficult nowadays tat we shud sorta eat nails to bear it..(Its s so funny to realise how we resort to cursin d fella who cuts our line on d road and many rantings spill out n shud say we r completely in d dark abt all dis until we get to office ,look back n recollect :-))

    Situations like dis happen and ges happened fr many of us where bike wud show its typical character at d wrong time enroute,addin to tat repair shop closed n how bad it s to climb d walls jus fr d shop to get open!! Hurray d worst thing tat can happen!!


    And yeah i agree wid u "Driving on Chennai or rather Indian roads has become an everyday battle of life and death in which life surprisingly
    ends up winning." .


    The endin was very satirical..lol loved d lines "calling in sick, watching TV and ordering a pizza!!!
    Peace at last :-)"

    I like the ending. Should i mention the murphy's law which actually works here.

    call it a beginning of this end... cheesy pizza, the potato wedges, Sachets of free tomato ketchup,all teh spices...the loud snory.. sleep,followed by a eeze walk to the mall near by, ending with a bhel/chenna samosa from chit chat..back home.. promises to start atleast 45 mins early tomorrow....
    hit bed fast just to wake up in the middle of early hours next day and run to the toilet.. Thanks to all the goodies of yday..I am really SICK today. Cant call it off.. better be going...... to the room with picture of metal queen stuck at the door... at office.

    Murphy's Law: Late at office and say a flat tire.. tomorrow you got it flat.
