All in a days work for an A.C.O.N.

Warning: The post is full of overused cliché and Yodaism and silly grammar mistakes. And some events have been exaggerated for dramatization.

he stays close by to the office, so that he can reach office in time and without wasting much effort on commutation.
he utilizes his commute to write cheques.
he reaches office, runs to have his breakfast (mind you, there is a long queue waiting for him there)
All this so that he can attend a badly timed 09:00 AM conference calls with the onsite monsters.
Gobbling up pieces of stale Idli, he thinks of excuses to avoid any action item.
Enthusiastically, he reaches to his desk (ya, it is a huge desk, after all, it is a conference room)
And to his utter disgust, the meeting got cancelled. What a start of the day!
He then makes a mental list of things to do and not to do during the workday.
Thanking to some good souls in his Acon group, he found out a way to the bliss, i.e. orkut and gtalk.
He invests his next one hour in catching up with old friends and beating his organization's reputation to smithereens.
time for a quick discussion, where, being an MBA he is, he is able to avoid any task coming upon him.
Few more chit chats, and time for the second most important activity for the day, what they call it as a lunch.
A good dose of Mini-Thali and few puffs of passive smoking later, he is refreshed.. to commit the sin called work.

It is post lunch, he is feeling drowsy, but there are still some pending task which are haunting him. Determined he is, he starts of completing these one by one so that he can get back to his bliss. he prepares some artifacts which are known as Word Documents and Visio Drawings(what the hell is he drawing anyway, nobody is able to understand) It is the efficiency which matters, not the effectiveness.

An other round of bliss, followed by few more discussions (no donuts here :( , it is India). he is all set and looking forward to call it a (work) day. And as he sees the number of people online are dipping, he jumps, swipes out and run for what they call is the Nirvana.. hey hold on.. this can't be the end of story, there should be something more to it.. right.. oh.. wait.. here it is..

The Nirvana is - CS. He runs to a makeshift sitting area in classroom. It is three building far and as luck would have it, it starts pouring. But I told you earlier, this guy is determined. Unflinched, he moves on, getting all drenched in the process. He sees his goal in sight.. He rushes and finally reached the heaven where he will attain an hour long Nirvana..

so you guys must be thinking, enough of this shit, what else..
There is only one icing on the cake. It dawns on him that if has to catch the 07:15 bus, he has to move really quick. The newly launched Bicycles in the office will come handy. He sees only one available. He reaches for it. It is a hate a first sight. It is Gaudy Pink, with stupidly design seat. Anyways, he carries on, and then he sees, that he is on the wrong side of the road, a car is coming toward him and the lovely? bicycle has no brakes!!!! he was a non-believer, all these series of unfortunate events make him pray to the Almighty. thankfully, the car driver was in senses and avoids a unavoidable collision.

Then there is a happy ending to the story. He runs to catch the bus, reaches just on time. and hopefully he will find a good seat so that he can reach home without any more challenges.
