Interesting Clock!

Interesting Clock!

Take a look at this link:

Wonder how people find the time and energy to create such stuff???

As a friend who told me, perhaps they find the time and energy for creating such stuff just like I find the time and energy for writing my blog posts!

Tech-savvy mouse


Wonder where I got this one from. But a great one.



Wonder what would happen in reality once animals start having the powers of the sixth sense. As it is we're unable to handle simple mosquitos and cockroaches!

Alien Hand Syndrome

Alien Hand Syndrome

"Imagine being attacked by one of your own hands, which repeatedly tries to slap and punch you. Or you go into a shop and when you try to turn right, one of your legs decides it wants to go left, leaving you walking round in circles."

These words that I happened to read prompted me to read the article fully.

This article that I'm about to share is no joke.

On the contrary, it brought a rather sad smile on my face.

A genuine sense of sympathy accompanied by the typical perplexed reaction wondering as to why "God Almighty" comes up with such strange problems to be faced by specific individuals.

If you have the courage, read the article that I came across on the BBC website:

Farewell note from a guy who has resigned from his job!

Farewell note from a guy who has resigned from his job!

Many of us have received this one through email, but worth sharing nevertheless:

FAREWELL

 

Dear Co-Workers and Managers,

 

As many of you probably know, today is my last day. But before I leave, I  wanted to take this opportunity to let you know what a great and distinct  pleasure it has been to type "Today is my last day."

 

For nearly as long as I've worked here, I've hoped that I might one day leave this company. And now that this dream has become a reality, please know that I could not have reached this goal without your unending lack of support. Words cannot express my gratitude for the words of gratitude you did not express.

 

I would especially like to thank all of my managers both past and present but with the exception of the wonderful Saroj Hariprashad: in an age where miscommunication is all too common, you consistently impressed and inspired me with the sheer magnitude of your misinformation, ignorance and intolerance for true talent. It takes a strong man to admit his mistake - it takes a stronger man to attribute his mistake to me.

 

Over the past seven years, you have taught me more than I could ever ask for and, in most cases, ever did ask for. I have been fortunate enough to work with some absolutely interchangeable supervisors on a wide variety of seemingly identical projects - an invaluable lesson in overcoming daily tedium in overcoming daily tedium in overcoming daily tedium.

 

Your demands were high and your patience short, but I take great solace knowing that my work was, as stated on my annual review, "meets expectation." That is the type of praise that sends a man home happy after a 10 hour day, smiling his way through half a bottle of meets expectation scotch with a meets expectation cigar. Thanks Trish!

 

And to most of my peers: even though we barely acknowledged each other within these office walls, I hope that in the future, should we pass on the street, you will regard me the same way as I regard you: sans eye contact.


But to those few souls with whom I've actually interacted, here are my personalized notes of farewell:

 

To Philip Cress, I will not miss hearing you cry over absolutely nothing while laying blame on me and my coworkers. Your racial comments about Joe Cobbinah were truly offensive and I hope that one day you might gain the strength to apologize to him.

 

To Brenda Ashby whom is long gone, I hope you find a manager that treats you as poorly as you have treated us. I worked harder for you then any manager in my career and I regret every ounce of it. Watching you take credit for my work was truly demoralizing.

 

To Sylvia Keenan, you should learn how to keep your mouth shut sweet heart. Bad mouthing the innocent is a negative thing, especially when your talking about someone who knows your disgusting secrets. ; )

 

To Bob Malvin (Mr. Cronyism Jr), well, I wish you had more of a back bone. You threw me to the wolves with that witch Brenda and I learned all too much from it. I still can't believe that after following your instructions, I ended up getting written up, wow. Thanks for the experience buddy, lesson learned.

 

Don Merritt (Mr. Cronyism Sr), I'm happy that you were let go in the same manner that you have handed down to my dedicated coworkers. Hearing you on the phone last year brag about how great bonuses were going to be for you fellas in upper management because all of the lay offs made me nearly vomit. I never expected to see management benefit financially from the suffering of scores of people but then again, with this company's rooted history in the slave trade it only makes sense.

 

To all of the executives of this company, Jamie Dimon and such. Despite working through countless managers that practiced unethical behavior, racism, sexism, jealousy and cronyism, I have benefited tremendously by working here and I truly thank you for that. There was once a time where hard work was rewarded and acknowledged, it's a pity that all of our positive output now falls on deaf ears and passes blind eyes. My advice for you is to place yourself closer to the pulse of this company and enjoy the effort and dedication of us "faceless little people" more. There are many great people that are being over worked and mistreated but yet are still loyal not to those who abuse them but to the greater mission of providing excellent customer support. Find them and embrace them as they will help battle the cancerous plague that is ravishing the moral of this company.

 

So, in parting, if I could pass on any word of advice to the lower salary recipient ("because it's good for the company") in India or Tampa who will soon be filling my position, it would be to cherish this experience because a job opportunity like this comes along only once in a lifetime.


Meaning: if I had to work here again in this lifetime, I would sooner kill myself.


To those who I have held a great relationship with, I will miss being your co-worker and will cherish our history together. Please don't bother responding as at this very moment I am most likely in my car doing 85 with the windows down listening to Biggie
One!

Am sure however, that you would not wish to do a "copy and paste" job when you resign, unless you're sure that you'll not end up interacting with the same bosses and/or colleagues in the future in any professional capacity!

Just laugh it off and pass it on to your friends!

Difference between "Complete" & "Finished"

Difference between "Complete" & "Finished"

This is a good one that I came across recently.

Enjoy:

Do you know the difference between COMPLETE & FINISHED ?

Some People think there is no difference between "COMPLETE" & FINISHED"........

What do you think ??

Now read the clever version.

When you marry the right one, you are "COMPLETE"....

And when you marry the wrong one, you are "FINISHED".....

And when the right one catches you with the wrong one, you are...
