Hope lies in a new dawn or so she hoped as she pinched herself before logging into her personal demon. This 15″ monster is giving her no response since last week. This day was no different. Yet, she showed ounce of courage in dialling up that dreaded number again.
Infocom Nut: Yes mam
Miss Surreal :I am going to write to higher authorities.My system has crashed again
Infocom(in a shameless tone):we will fix it today madam.
So it begins, a series of misfortune strikes her as if she is the only target left .She finally logs in after struggling for 2 hours.
Hope is a fooling thing and every stupid deed never dies.Miss Surreal was hoping for shock free afternoon when suddenly someone knocked on the door.
Long dark bearded man with an evil intention on his face enters.
Mr Uncool: Increase our hours,this is not acceptable…gibberish…
Miss Surreal:I can only do it if you show me the proof.I work on data not your whimsical demands.
Mr. Uncool brought his gang to further pressurise Miss Surreal.Yet Miss Surreal stood firm,it was almost surreal to see Gang members demanding money for the work they never did.
Our organisation is masterful in creating gems like these,when time is over,they feel they can pretend to work.These moron had so many oxymoron in their consecutive syllables that Miss Surreal was simply stunned.
After listening to their meaningless banter,she promised to resolve the issue by discussing with the Head.
Scene 2: Heated chattering at Head Office
Topic seemed Headless from the start.With no room for further cheat by the Gang Members.This looked an open and shut case.Eureka! Sheer confidence of Mr. Uncool turned the tables and it seemed management has suffered Stockholm Syndrome and out of nowhere,freewill was granted to Gang members.
Miss Surreal tried her best to convince the real scenario,but the game was already played,dice was already thrown.Paper was signed and oppressor acting as oppressed,took another giant leap towards making this space smell like someone has killed ethics and justice with a single knife.
Scene 3:Sheer will and perseverence of Miss Surreal,brought faint hope as if there was light at the end of the tunnel.This time,barriers were broken,judgement was reversed and hours were deducted.
I could see the disappointment on the face of Mr Uncool and Gang and a feeling of elation and relief on Miss Surreal`s face.She had won a battle in this topsy turvy war.
Alas! Time was over to give Over time!!
