Main aisi kyun hu!!!

Yiiiiiipppeeeeeee...... I am back from Chennai. I went there along with my brother. It had been a nice experience overall. I enjoyed a lot. I saw a beach for the first time in my life!! And ya.. it was quite interesting too. Those of you who know me well must be knowing what a unique brain God has gifted me. In my journey I proved it once again. Read this post and you will agree with me.

I got my tickets booked on 22nd August in Shatapdi Express. The train from Bangalore to Chennai was scheduled on 25th August and return ticket was on 30th August. I got xerox of both the tickets and kept them in my purse so that I don’t have to take out the original copy for any verification. When I got the tickets book, it was in waiting list(WL). No 52 and 53. I was told it will get confirmed. With lots of hopes, I filled the PNR number here on 23rd night and saw that it was WL 32 and 33. On 24th morning I checked again and was happy to see that it was confirmed. We got coach C5 , seat 34 and 35. The train was scheduled at 6 am. We reached station by 5:30, searched for the platform number and sat at our place. By this time the list wasn’t put up on the train. Then one uncle came and claimed it was his seat. We were like whattttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttt. Dad went out and checked the list which was put up now and...................... we were not allotted those seats!! We came out and everyone stared at me. I said I checked it properly. Then we talked to TT. He told those weren’t our seats. We were WL 1 and 2. There were lots of other people who were having their seats in WL series. It was 5:50 am now and everyone was standing around TT. At last nominal charges were paid to TT to allot some empty seats to everyone including us. Within 5 minutes we went from one coach to another because there was no empty seat where TT sent us. Each time before changing the coach we ran to TT and asked for another seat. It was so exhausting. At last we got one seat. I sat and my brother searched for another seat. Later TT allotted us 2 seats together after breakfast. Then I had to listen to a big big big lecture from my brother.

My Unkymood Punkymood (Unkymoods)I took out the tickets, saw the PNR no. and...................... I AM AN IDIOT. Me, the FOOL with capital F,O,O and L, entered the wrong PNR no. I entered PNR no. for the return ticket!!!! I know I am careless, stupid, foolish...... BUT TO THIS EXTENT!!!!! The tickets clearly mention the route, the date and above all, the return ticket already had coach C5 and seat 34, 35 printed on it!!!!!!!!! How could I have neglected three facts mentioned on the ticked itself. On the Xerox I had taken the return ticket was on top, so I blindly entered its PNR no.!!!!!!!

I am heights and limit of foolishness and as I said, I keep proving it. All I can say is.. Main aisi kyun hu!!! Keep coming back for such examples.....

Do Not disturb-2

Management Lessons..

Got this as a forward. Thought it was worth sharing here.
Lesson 1:
One fine day, a bus driver went to the bus garage, started his bus, and drove off along the route. No problems for the first few stops - a few people got on, a few got off, and things went generally well.At the next stop, however, a big hulk of a guy got on. Six feet eight, built like a wrestler, arms hanging down to the ground. He glared at the driver and said, "Big John doesn't pay!" and sat down at the back.Did I mention that the driver was five feet three, thin, and basically meek? Well, he was. Naturally, he didn't argue with Big John, but he wasn't happy about it. The next day the same thing happened - Big John got on again, made a show of refusing to pay, and sat down.
And the next day, and the next.This grated on the bus driver, who started losing sleep over the way Big John was taking advantage of him. Finally he could stand it no longer. He signed up for body building courses, karate, judo, and all that good stuff.By the end of the summer, he had become quite strong; what's more, he felt really good about himself. So on the next Monday, when Big John once again got on the bus and said, "Big John doesn't pay!", the driver stood up, glared back at the passenger, and screamed, "And why not? "With a surprised look on his face, Big John replied, "Big John has a bus pass!"
Management Lesson: "Be sure there is a problem in the first place before working hard to solve one."

Lesson 2:
A sales rep, an administration clerk and the manager are walking to lunch when they find an antique oil lamp. They rub it and a Genie comes out in a puff of smoke.
The Genie says, "I usually only grant three wishes, so I'll give each of you just one."
"Me first! Me first!" says the admin clerk "I want to be in the Bahamas, driving a speedboat, without a care in the world." Poof! She's gone.
In astonishment, "Me next! Me next!" says the sales rep. "I want to be in Hawaii, relaxing on the beach with my personal masseuse, an endlesssupply of pina coladas and the love of my life." Poof! He's gone.
"OK, you're up," the Genie says to the manager.
The manager says, "I want those two back in the office after lunch."

Management Lesson: Always let your boss have the first say.

Lesson 3:
A crow was sitting on a tree, doing nothing all day. A small rabbit saw the crow, and asked him, "Can I also sit like you and do nothing all daylong?"
The crow answered: "Sure, why not." So, the rabbit sat on the ground below the crow, and rested.
All of a sudden a fox appeared, jumped on the rabbit and ate it.
Management Lesson:To be sitting and doing nothing, you must be sitting very, very high.
Lesson 4:
A turkey was chatting with a bull. "I would love to be able to get to the top of that tree," sighed the turkey, "but I haven't got the energy."
"Well, why don't you nibble on some of my droppings?" replied the bull. They're packed with nutrients."
The turkey pecked at a lump of dung, and found it actually gave him enough strength to reach the lowest branch of the tree. The next day, after eating some more dung, he reached the second branch.
Finally after a fourth night, the turkey was proudly perched at the top of the tree. He was promptly spotted by a farmer, who shot him out of the tree.
Management Lesson: Bullshit might get you to the top, but it won't keep you there!

Do Not Disturb..

Lately, I was harassed by more than 10 unnecessary push messages being sent daily, having download links for ringtones, wallpapers, contests and everything under the sun!! My mistake!! I had activated push messages service by mistake. So I rectified it by disabling the service and thus saving myself from this torture.

But that’s not all.. There are still lot of messages being sent by Hutch and yeah.. how can I forget those unwanted automated promotional calls. Clever people!! The call is from different number each time. The worst part is that if you disconnect any call from some numbers", you keep getting a call from the same number once in 6 hours till u receive it. Imagine, on a holiday, you are sleeping peacefully and you get a call. Thinking that it’s from someone you know, happily you grab your cell and what you get to listen is “Kabhie kabhie mere dil mein khayal aata hai...... Is gaane ko apni caller tune set karne liye keval 20 rupaye prati mahina.... bla.. bla....” Sooooooo annoying!!!

Tired of all this I decided to call Hutch Customer Care. Fortunately, I didn’t had to wait for hours to talk to a customer care executive (unlike last time, well, it was around an year back, I had to wait for 1 hour and I stopped calling to 111 after that). The solution given was either to register here or to send DND to 111. Hutch claims to stop sending promotional SMSes and they won’t disturb with their automated calls either. A blessing indeed!! Without wasting a minute, at 5:02pm I sent DND to 111.

5:03pm (from 111) -> We respect your privacy. Please give us 72 hours to include your number on our Do Not Disturb list. Thank you.

5:04pm (from 6789) -> Hi!! You just spoke to Babu Kumar. We’d like to know if you were satisfied with the experience. Reply Toll Free with Yes or No.

And I thought that they won’t DISTURB!!Huh!! Anyway, replied with a Yes because Mr Babu Kumar helped me out by telling about DND te fer main socheya ki chalo hun taan theek hai, relaxo, hun nhi khange dimag.. isle me = very very happy.. with two capital V’s and a capital H.

5:06pm (from 6789) -> Thank you for your feedback. We would like to know more about the experience. Would you like to respond to a few questions? Reply Toll Free with Yes or No.

Oye!! hudd ho gyi!! I am telling not to disturb te eh ne ki fir msg te msg bheji jande ne. Chalo koi na, I sent NO to 6789 and there popped a message again:

Thank you for your feedback. If there is more you’d like to share please SMS your comments Toll Free to 6790.

Gosh!! Limit hundi hai kisi gal di!! Hutch.. Pleaseeeeeee.. DO NOT DISTURB!!

Let’s see how much you respect customer privacy. Will update after “72” hours..
