The new team in office is getting crazy day by day. If you are a part of a team that keeps you smiling and happy, then I guess there is no room for any tension. The task gets done smoothly, with no chaos.
Each of them are unique in their behaviours and traits. However I would like to write about this one "GUY". This GUY falls short on his English vocabulary skills. Well this is not the same guy about whom I had posted last year, but yet another funny sportive fella.
Exactly speaking, his problem goes like this: While he talks in English, his mind frames sentences in Hindi and the final outcome - funny statements and of course roaring laughter. I am not sure if people call this syndrome a kind of dyslexia or some other complex name from the medical dictionary. However the best part of all this is that - he joins the smiles, giggles and innocently says "galti se hogaya yaar!!". Poor chap!
Rock and Roll over these incidents:
1) It was a hectic day at work and the clock was ticking 8 in the night.
Me: "Hey Can you please debug this code for me. I have plenty on my hand?"
GUY: "Mera dhimag hang hogaya hain. I can't do it now"
Dhimag Hang hogaya hain :/
2) It was a testing peer review session , where another team mate was reviewing the testing document created by this "Guy".
Reviewer: " Why is test case #8 not complete and not according to the requirement?"
GUY: "Hey I am rotating my mind for 3 hours on this test case but could not solve it".
Rotating his mind :/ ha ha ha:)
3) One fine day "EmployeeX" was trying to find a colleague "Employee Y" who sits in the cubicle adjacent to this Guy. When the friend approached him to inquire about the lady.
Employee X: Hey do you know where Employee Y is ?
Guy: "Hey she is not in her berth from morning.I dont know where she has gone."
Not in her berth??? :/
4. Once it so happened that our hero had to take a long vacation and he had not planned for it. Another team member already had a planned vacation for the same working days. As a team leader I had to request one of them to compromise on their vacation so as to provide complete support and quality delivery of the assigned projects. This GUY thought for a while and after making some itenery checks on the net he came back to my desk and said "I will trim my leaves and come back in 5 days. not taking 10 days leave".
I was happy on two facts. First on the usage of "trim function"[computer associated terminology]even in his normal sentences and second for shortening his vacation:/
5.There was an audit scheduled of the projects our team delivered and I started randomly reviewing artifacts on the common documents repository. Guess what? The document that I had opened in front of me was created by this GUY. I needed a clarification on one of the artifacts and hence pinged him to stop by my desk for a minute.When he arrived I asked him to help me find a design for a particular business requirement.After a 10 minute search in the repository he says "Uska aur thoda look karna hain. Give me 5 minutes more, I will give you the document".
Look karna hain.. karo bhai look karo!! :/
This guy is very sportive and he has now improved his communication skills and is ever willing to correct his mistakes.
No offence to anyone. This is just for some smiles :) I have posted this after seeking permission from "the Hero".
