Side Effects of Working in the IT Sector

 Side Effects of Working in the IT Sector


I once went out to the market wearing my Infosys ID card and did not realize till my friend told me why I was wearing it !!!!


few days back I slept at 11:30 in the ni8 and woke up in the morning at 7:00 and suddenly thought that I haven’t completed 9.15 hours and laughed at myself when I realised abt that.


One from me too…

Just after our training completion in Mysore Dc and postings to Pune, me and my friends went out for dinner in one of the best restaurants. .

And as I finished.. I started walking towards the Basin with plates in my hand.. 🙂


Jus to add…

Once I was on call with my father and mom was not around. I went on to ask, "why is she not attending the status call?"


I don’t login to orkut, yahoo, gmail, youtube, etc.. at my personal internet connection at home… thinking it will be blocked any way.

Till I realize – I am at home.


Yeah sometimes it do happens with me also…….. ….while writing personal mails also…….. .I jus use the way as if I am writing to onsite or some senior person…… ..

Jus forget that we are jus mailing our friends….. ………

And keeping hands in front of tap for waiting water to drop by itself is very frequent with me………. …..I jus forget that we have to turn on and off the tap……… ..



Once after talking to one of my friend. I ended the conversation saying …" Ok bye…in case of any issues will call u back"



Sometimes when I mistakenly delete a message

from my mobile, I hope for a second, maybe its in the recycle bin


I was about to throw my hanky into the bin after drying my hand.


Once I was flashing my ID card instead of unlocking the door with the keys.


Kinda a same experience for me too..

I gave my office mail id and pwd to access Gmail and wondered when did they become invalid???


I have a experience to share tooo .. I was earlier working at the back office of an international Bank. We used to ‘dispatch’ lot of Credit / Debit cards and statements for the customers and track its delivery later.

Once my granma was admitted in a hospital, my team mate once casually asked me " howz ur granma doing now ? still in hospital ? " … and i replied to her " She is better now , she will dispatched from the hospital tomorrow !"

This was followed by a loud laugh in the entire bay !


Once I went to a pharmacy n asked for a tab….pharmacist asked whr I want 250mg r 500mg…..suddenly I replied as 256mg…lol. …thank god he didn’t noticed tht….


Me getting a thought of doing an Alt+Tab while switching from a news channel to the DVD while watching TV.


And I – after a forty hour marathon in Bhubaneshwar with Powerbuilder, decided to take a break and went to a movie. In the middle of the movie, when I wanted to check the time, I kept repeatedly glancing at the bottom right corner of the silver screen!


Few of my friends and myself decided to go out for dinner. The place wasn’t fixed yet. I said we shall decide it "run time"


When I went to a movie theatre from office directly.. I showed the guy at the entrance my ID card and walked in… he had to call me back asking the ticket…


One late night when I went home after work, I was trying to flash my id card to open the lock and only after few secs, I realised what i’m trying to do


Once I went to have juice at the local juice vendor and innocuously asked him whether he had a plain ‘version’ of lemonade.


Few years back my shogun engine stopped on Bangalore MG Road as the petrol came to reserve. I told my friend I need to restart my bike!


The other day I was hearing one guy talking of a "Standalone" house.. when he was actually intending a independent house… Poor broker shud have tuff time trying to find a " Alone house standing in a huge empty area… " don’t know what interpretations the guy must have made.
