Angel With An Energy Drink

“zzzzzz”

It was tiring boring day at work. I was sleepy, and was finding it difficult to keep my eyes open. My head did not hit the desk, thanks to my Dell Monitor. However coke was already flowing through the number keys. This did wake me up; I have a keyboard with canals of coke now. I checked if anyone is watching and slowly laid paper tissues on my keyboard. My keyboard looked just like an Indian Clothesline. Things just did not go bad, but got worse. My system was not responding. Oh yeah the coke is still left in between the keys. I disconnected the keyboard and tried to drain out the liquid. Now I have a sticky desk with coke and soaked tissues. Thankfully everyone is busy working.

 

I cleared the mess in five minutes and I badly needed a break.

The trip to cafeteria was great ! Thanks to the power cuts and diesel shortage in Bangalore, the lifts were not switched ON. The notice read “We are on a power saver mode, Please use the stairs”

 

The cafeteria was buzzing with people; I have not seen this many people working on our floors, where are they coming from? Do they work with me?

 

“Good evening sir, please try this non-alcoholic energy drink” said a sweet girl.

“wahht?”

“Energy drink sir, this will increase your alertness and make you more productive”

“waaah” I said, just what I wanted. I thanked god for sending this angel.

 

 “How much?” I asked?

“Its complimentary sir”

FREE !! Things were indeed getting better, not just that I got an ‘energy drink’ just in time, it was free and a beautiful girl to serve.

 

Gulp Gulp.

 

I feel gooooood.

 

Back at my desk, the system started working.

But its time to go home now.  ciao.

 

PS : The energy drink is indeed working, I managed to make a post out of it.

    Lekhni,
    No we just got coke free 🙂 Redbull was just one time complimentary offer served by the RedBull gals.

  9. I was hooked from the first line because I thought you would say…I was dreaming!! 🙂 I mean, who wants to give free drinks nowadays, that too in office, it had to be a dream! Considering you didn’t seem to recognize people either! But it had a surprise ending! I like surprise endings. 🙂

  10. Chick with an energy drink would have been a better title. It rhymes. 😛

    Anyway, I had this friend of mine spilling coke on my keyboard too. I kicked him really hard after that but apparently nothing went wrong, except of course the sticky factor.

  11. I never bring coffee near my keyboard for the same reason. I have a phobia that it might spill. 🙂

  12. Nita,
    Thanks. 🙂 Free energy drink at the right time is a dream come true.
    Ish,
    haha. you are good with titles I know…

    Amit,
    yeah. I spilled it once, but I bring drink at my desk again. These days the KBs are water resistant. I tested mine and YES its water resistant indeed !.
