Boys….Look Who’s Back/ Monkey Business?

Is it who’s back or whose back?

Did anyone miss me? Please be nice and say ‘Yes’. It will really make my day to know that I have a dedicated fan following πŸ˜›

I’v been working at client-site in a nationalized bank for the past couple of weeks. It’s been crazy. No loos, no water, no food, no chai-coffee on time (that’s the toughest part) and oh, we also had a visit from some of the friendly neighbourhod monkeys, who dropped by to share our lunch.Unfortunately, we were a hungry lot and weren’t really in the mood to share our meagre fare of sandwiches so we screamed the house down (not literally – it a sturdy angrezon ke zamane ki building and thankfully not a modern-day construction) and called up a colleague who was elsewhere in the building and he came in with half – a dozen bank officers with lathis in their hands. Yup we’r not particularly friendly when we’r working. We got escorted out by bank officers on either side holding lathis & chairs and what not in their hands. Funny in retrospect. Makes for a great story now – not then. All we could think off at that time was 14 injections if any of them even touched us. As for the loos, as time grew short, we just tied hankies around our noses, held our breath and used the loos there. We also carried our own extension cord, water & coffee. Thankfully we didn’t have to carry our own chairs and tables also, though they would have been far far more comfortable. We also has an avid smoker, who to avoid walking a kilometre till the lift, and then going three floors down and then crossing the road, decided to clamber onto a chair, then to an old abandoned cooler, then onto to a ledge from where she would hang on for dear life and smoke through a crack in the glass. Her newly-wed hubby was most certainly not amused by her dedication.Β 

On a different note though, I fail to understand how people are not and can not be honest with their work. There was another legal team there auditing the same documents as us and they finished their work in 2 days while we took 2 weeks. Being time-efficient is one thing, but missing out on key documents in order to finish your targets is a completely different thing. Some of you may laugh and say we were slow but we’r also thorough, which is the entire essence of an audit/ DD. How can anyone be dishonest with their work?
