Another work week has come and gone. I was training a set of 21 new hire employees in our Hyderabad office for 10 days and then was supporting them online for their first 2 weeks of them being on the job. It was a good experience and I have to say that I did enjoy it. I had a mostly really good experience and the guys and girls in the batch were awesomely receptive towards me.
So now that the batch is done, I am on back to training for Kerala folks from this Monday onwards. There is a chance that I might only start that with them on Tuesday and that is to be finalized soon. In between ofcourse I have this nice weekend and I took today to go out for a little while. I needed to go to the main post office here as once again I am facing issues with getting some of my parcels (mainly dvds) delivered.
This is because, due to the pandemic, we no longer have a security guard posted in our building. Most commercial places are able to pay more money and do that but residential places are facing difficulties. Unlike the guard who has been a long time stay-in at the large apartment complex who said that he has no other place to go other an an empty house and therefore he is staying put at the apartment complex, our building’s security agency is unable to send a person to us unless things improve. When the lockdown started we didn’t have a security guard for 2 months and then for a month we had the same guy who was here for almost 2 years come in.
But a month later he went back home as things started getting bad again and now for a month we don’t have a security guard are. Due to this when the postal guy comes to deliver my registered post, he is unable to let me know and just leaves a “delivery attempt” slip on the desk. He cannot come inside the building and he can’t call me, so today just like earlier this month, I had to go and collect the packages from the main post office where they hold the packages for 7 days after a “delivery attempt”.
After that I went to buy some groceries and snacks and I will get have to get some fruits and veggies separately when I next order online. Post that I went to Pizza Hut and had some wings and small pizza with a Pepsi and then came home after getting some cash out of an ATM. I crashed on my bed and watched a movie, 30 Days Of Night and then got some coffee and nacho chips at 5:15 pm.
