The office - 4

A few days ago, tension ripped thru' the office. The net connection was down. A summary of it's consequences.

-Productivity jumped up 300% (Not making this number up. Actually documented.)
-The OB walked around the office, and bad luck followed her wherever she went. Printers jammed, a cat walked into the MD's office, somebody forgot to flush a giant doodie, the tea was really bad (though they're blaming the peon for this), my laptop hung, the stud's bike refused to start, and so on. All this in a span of 6 minutes. I timed it.
-One person was actually observed reading a book. A book! An actual paper and bind book! (Unfortunately, it was 'The Da Vinci code', but still a vast improvement over 'GrandmaTitties')
-Lunch break was extended on either end by 1 hour. Which means 11 am to 3.30 pm.
-And yes, a whole lot of single females across B'lore wondered why their 'friends' had stopped messaging them.

Hmmm, ok maybe I did make up a bit of that. Which parts? You tell me :)

PS- Happy belated birthday wishes, Solitude's earnings.
