how the bus is late when I am early and early when I am late.
how relatives decide to descend on us the very weekend I plan a dinner out with the family. And how the same relatives are unavailable on days I want to just drop by and say hi.
how when I am dying to find a new job, I find none. And when I am happily settled in the one I have, friends,family and job sites send me great looking job opportunites by the dozen.
how the day I am lazy to take food from home, the canteen serves the worst menu of the week- left over vegetables parcelled off as mili-juli sabzi, rajma with coconut(ever eaten that?),corn raita, paneer masala (a few pieces of paneer floating in a red tasteless curry), a boring onion-tomato-cucumber salad(with a high proportion of onions) and some liquidy sweet dish made of sabudana.
how the maid choses to take an unannounced chhutti on the Sunday that I decide I want to spend doing nothing.
how net banking stubbornly refuses to work for me forcing me to make trips to the bank (does anyone physically go to the bank these days?) but works with perfect ease for everyone else.
how I meet traffic jams the day I want to reach home early, which is basically every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
how when I fill up buckets and buckets of water in an attempt to deal with the Municipal Corporation announcement of a water cut ,I discover there is no cut at all. And when I operate on my past expience and don’t fill up any buckets, the Municipality rewards me with a 12 hour water cut.
how when my baking skills actually begin to get better, everyone at home goes on a weight managment spree when no one worried an iota about their weight when I was dishing out inedible dishes by the dozen.
how I am forced to travel when I would rather stay in town. And when I am bored stiff of sitting in office, I am not given the opportunity to travel. Btw, another trip is coming up at the end of the week . I tell you, I am so done with traveling for work.
Oh I could go on and on.. examples of how much control I have over my life. When I want this, I get that. When I want that, I get this! I think this songs compliments my situation perfectly.
Here’s another song that has caught my attention. Its not the greatest song ever made, but it is peppy.
