After a long and shitty week (10-12 hours for 6 days on average), I needed a break. I need more than a break – I need a change of pace and scenery. I might even need a new face and life!
Today another problem reared it’s ugly head at us. And although it’s not directly or indirectly involving my team or department it still was devastating. A guy who was with us for almost 3 years was caught manipulating data and he was sacked. The thing is that he wasn’t doing this for the first time and he was covered many times. But this time he wasn’t going to be saved. Not after the numerous warnings and feedback that he has been given. There was no going back and he knew it. It’s sad that it had to end this way.
Anyway, I needed a break and some charging up. I wanted to sleep in on Sunday and so after I left the office, I headed for Oberoi bar on M G Road. I got me a couple of beers and some chicken omlette. The bar was noisy, with three guys at the table right next to me (for some reason, they keep the tables too close to each other for comfort) and it negated some of the effects of the beer. I had to make a couple of phone calls as well and I did it while sipping on beer.
Now for Sunday. I don’t want to get a call, I don’t want to talk to anybody. I just want to be left alone and by myself. I’ll get me some light food for the day and some coffee and I’ll be fine.
