SIDE EFFECTS of working in the IT sector !!!

* ** ☼ ☼** *SIDE EFFECTS of working in the IT sector !!!*** ☼ ☼*

These are real life anecdotes shared by IT workers.


I once left home to go to the market wearing my Infosys ID card

and did not realize till my friend asked me why I was wearing it !!!!



few days back I slept at 11:30 in the night 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 that.



One from me too...

Just after our training completion in Mysore and posting 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 wash 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........ ....

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 friends

I ended the conversation saying ...

" Ok 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 hand towel into the bin after drying my hand..... at



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



Kinda a same experience for me too..

I gave my office mail id and password to access Gmail and

wondered when they became 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 whether I want 250mg or 500mg.....

I replied 256mb....thank god he didn't notice.



Me getting a thought of doing an Alt+Tab while switching

from a news channel to the DVD while watching TV.
