If anything can go wrong, it will

Yesterday seemed like a regular day. I was going to take my father to the doctor for a check up and then head to work.
I land up at the hospital, only to be told that the appointments are done for the day and to come back another day.
I head to work, only to get stuck in a traffic jam from hell because of All Soul's Day.
I get done with work, only to get stuck in the same traffic jam from hell because of All Soul's Day.
I go home to check on my father and pick up my dog, only to hear that his sugar is through the roof.
I head back to my place, only to get stuck in another traffic jam.
I try  to get out of the jam,only to drive into a ditch that was in a blind spot.
(Five good men pushed and pulled the car and helped me out. The only good thing about the day.)
I reach my apartment and my dog throws up in my neighbour's flat.
I go up to my own flat and realise I have the wrong key.
I get the right key and enter the flat, only to realise that the maid hasn't come and the place is a mess.
I go to lie down, only to find that my dog has peed on the bed (My husband's side, not mine, if we're going to be looking on the bright side.)
I finally decide that the only thing I can do is give up and laugh about it.

Ha ha.

Some days, I wonder about work.
I love that it's hectic and that I'm busy all the time.
I also hate that it's hectic and I'm busy all the time.

Question of the day

Q. Would I want to spend Rs. 15,000 on a handbag?
A. No. Not if it had a visible brand name on it.

I think about my life with P and P.
I couldn't be happier.

If anything can go wrong, it will.

Where did it all go wrong?

All I'm doing today is crying.
I'm crying for the Kashmiri Pandits who had to leave.
For the Muslims that remained to face the hate of the Indian army.
The Hindus who left Pakistan and the Muslims who left India.
For the Palestinians, the Syrians, Iraquis, Africans, Bangladeshis, French,the list doesn't seem to end.
And for that puppy, 3-4 months old, whose foot is maimed because someone ran over it.

Lady Boss

Whenever the debate and stereotyping of of women bosses comes up, I think of all the ones I've had and I'm happy to  say that with the exception of one (her favourite book was Vampire Diaries,there's no way I'm not holding that against her) they've been smart, driven and overall really great to work with not to mention, inspirational. When I think about my best friends (both women bosses themselves), I feel the same way.

I've realised today that I've been working harder than anyone. 
All these months I haven't had the time or have been just been too tired to read.

Everyone else did.

Then what?

Honest, hard work, seems to mean nothing if it doesn't have a sprinkling of sycophancy.

Watching history disappear in front of you is just sad.

I suppose he fancied himself something of a ladies man and he may well have been but what he probably didn't realise was that he had a cold and an infection and I, with my over sensitive sense of smell could think of nothing except how repulsive it all seemed while I wondered how much longer I could hold my breath.

The Lower Classes

I rarely find myself around people who are crude and low class but the other day, I was forced to keep company with some of this ilk. It's quite surprising though that coming from the same family, with the same upbringing; some people are capable of behaving well, while others are downright vulgar.
It only goes to show that 'class' is determined not by how much money you have or your status in society, but by how your comport yourself.

I learned in business school that belief is the end of reason.
Maya wrote on my handbag yesterday.
The only handbag that I own and like.
I beat her and she almost cried.
Except that when I looked at what she had written it went, "I love you Kiran."

Karma Police
Popularity seems to carry greater weight than hardwork when doing a job that doesn't require much mental prowess. 

Pushing for the positive

Tiny bits of positive reinforcement produce a disproportionate amount of goodwill, just as does neutral or negative feedback result in a sudden and steep drop in productivity.
