No work mood today!

No Work Mood today...
....Work sucks or rather... doesnt exist!! (Yeah am one of those lucky ones..touchwood!)

Well it was almost a fantasy with me to get paid for atleast one month without any work and its come true!:-)....and stemming really out of the theory that I believe in strongly--"If a company hires me they need to pay me to be on their rolls (coz well they do get business by showing to their clients that we have X thousand qualified people with us!)...and if they want me to work as well , then I need to get paid extra! (Hubby's almost given up on me)

Its been almost a month since I joined work and well most of the month has been spent net surfing and writing insanely long mails to friends who till now didnt exist! Coz well am still supposed to be new here and in the "honeymoon phase"...

Well which brings me to the point-why, pray tell me why do I need to come to office everyday when I dont have anything 'value adding' to contribute! Sometimes when you get up in the morning and feel that no matter NOT gonna work today!( have been in this mood for a month and its getting dangerous with every passing day)

So how do we handle days like these when u just dont feel like working?--coz I don't have a valid reason for leave!--what do I tell my boss?--"Hey babe, Am not coming to work today coz I am in no mood to work!"-Yeah sure!But then come to think of it--IT IS a valid reason! I mean Mood swings are not in my control and if my mood swings are unfavourable to work..well too bad!

And whats the point of me dragging my butt out here when am probably not even an inch productive today..maybe companies should just face realities and have leave for such reasons...and there can be n number of

1)" No work mood today" leave
2)"Daru Party hangover" Leave
3)"Too much sex last night" Leave
4)"Maid's unwell so need to nurse her" Leave
5)"My Dog puked last night" Leave
6)"Didnt have Ironed clothees to wear" Leave
7)"Parents coming to town so need to clean the Pigsty " Leave
8)"PMS" leave for women
9) "The last episode rerun of Amercian Idol is on in the afternoon and i missed it last night"Leave
10) "The cute babe/dude in the next cubicle is on leave today"Leave
11) "My Gf/bf caught me fooling around-I need to go under cover" Leave
11)"Just Like that" Leave (Thats my favourite one!:-)..

and the list goes on..and mind u these are all reasons that are extremely "life-impacting"--now if I dont have Ironed clothes to wear coz my Dhobi for some godforsaken reason didnt turn up or I missed the last episiode of amercian Idol(I mean whats the point of seeing all the other episodes if u miss the last one!)..How do I come to office????

....Bossmate are you listening!!...AM NOT GONNA WORK TODAY!!WOW!!--FEELS GRT!:-))

At 12:27 PM, Blogger Ron said...

Ah! That explains the number of comments on my blog :D

I really like the "just like that" leave and TOTALLY identify with the "didnt have anything ironed to wear" leave, although its often a question of "didnt have anything clean and ironed" with me.

At 3:41 PM, Blogger Sudarshan said...

Hahaha....great list of excuses you've put thinking..with such excuses you can take leave plenty of times lol..Funny post!! So did you take the leave then?? Really funny:-) I've noted some of them down!!
