    Venting

    In my college at the moment, waiting for some lazy government office clerks to type out some very important papers for me. It's 20 minutes past their lunchtime and they still refuse to move a finger!! It's frustrating...waiting for over three hours now and I swear I've never wanted to whack someone so badly!
    Oh but wait!this isn't where my frustration begun...no Sir-ie! Our (not-so-)beloved principal (after a lot of reminders) promised to keep my letter ready today. If you're guessing that he didn't keep it ready, you're obviously right. duh. wait. that isn't all. The dimwit is out of town for another 2 weeks!! So...more running about, and thank God for small miracles...I found other faculty members who could execute the work for me.
    But alas...it's all come down to this one lazy, repulsive, barely 5' clerk who apparently needs time to digest every single grain that's gone in his stomach...
    Another 15 minutes...and then he's toast!

      My vent:
      Once I spoke for like a minute to the clerk, and he just ignored me.
      I turned to my friend and said loudly -'Hey, can you see me, can you feel me?'
      'What?' He said suitably.
      'Oh. I thought I had died and turned a ghost.'
      The clerk ignored the wisecrack too :P

      Haha!

      Isnt this a scene at every sarkari college!?
      I kinda like it. Call me crazy, but when i think about it, id miss it when all this paper work and stuff will start moving around with the efficiency of our western counterparts.

      To be able to move your paper through a govt/college offices is a skills which requires timing and patience!

      :P
