How it feels when you are on BENCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hmmm... 'BENCH'. The dictionary meaning says worktable, work surface, worktop, workbench etc etc. But I have a different meaning for this word. Let me embellish on this.

Life after a hectic schedules and late night works has suddenly come to STAND STILL. When i say stand still i genuinely mean it. All of a sudden you see; people indulged in their own work and hiding themselves in their self built cacoon with a board which says 'BUSY' or 'DO NOT DISTURB'. I was in the same state till yesterday when i used to feel '24 hrs are not enough' but now i feel that 'How can people be so busy; Boss you have 24 hours ?' hmm... quite contradicting. But true in my sense.

When i say free i have time for everything now; be it blogging or anything from official to personal.

Ok, i had started the blog with the meaning of the word 'BENCH' and i had promised you to embellish on its meaning in my context. Rite now in my context the word means as fun, without work, enjoy etc etc. This is because rite now i am without work and i am free. The fun part is that i am paid for what i am doing now. :-)

Keeping the fun part aside, i do feel bad because me being a workaholic i cannot be stand still without anything especially when peolpe around are peeping into their computer screens and are indulged in their own world.

I am bored to death but alas my destiny says enjoy the time now and i am doing that.

Get back to your work guys... I am on BENCH but not you.

Why dont managers keep their words???

Hmm... Managers are managers. After having survived in this corporate world, i was lill dumb to realise "What are managers made of?" off late. Never did the situation come to me where i had to ask for a favor* from my manager.

Since two months i had to move around to ask for what i deserve but alas still it has not happened. Ofcourse i understand Mr Manager that you work for your company and your appraisal is also important for you. But since you are at such position you also need to think that you need to cater personal interests of your sub ordinates.

I just have one suggestion to them, dont try to hide things from us. This really irritates. You might think that you have lied and you would retain us for some time. Later we are not that dumb to stay here forever. Hmmm... I know that if not me they have someone else :( .

And another piece of request is not to behave like politician. Say 'No' if that cant be done. Please do not use all your Soft skills here and give false hopes to your employees. This really hurts.

Moreover why am i venting out my anger over here... I do have a choice to leave them. Let me go and try that...

* - I should have used the word 'deserve' but was forced to use the word 'favor' because this is what my managers think.
