I know I’ve written before that the work load storm has passed and I’m free to blog again. My colleague who was stuck in India promised to come back before I wrote that post. I was happy he’d come and take away some of the work load I’ve been doing – the work load that was his!
Then the phone call came.
“I forgot that I need to take an Indian immigration clearance before flying out. I need to stay for another 2-3 weeks.”
So he stayed there and enjoyed his mom’s home cooked meals while I continue hammering on the keyboard and saw nothing but my PC screen and mountain of papers for days. There were times when I really wanted to write something and hoped I’d have time (and energy) at the end of the day – so far, I had none. Then I’d forget what I wanted to say.
A couple of days ago, that colleague called my boss and also talked to me saying he’d come on Wednesday. TODAY. I’ve put his work load on his table, anticipating his return. I bet he’s excited to tackle his backlogs after THREE MONTHS away from the office. Or not.
It’s 9:30 am and he’s still not here.
