Today is one of those days I’ll be happy to see the back of. But unfortunately, in this case I can’t say that tomorrow will be another day. Because I know that tomorrow will be a continuation of today.
How do you deal with nasty colleagues at work, man? Colleagues who are constantly plotting & scheming against you? Men who are worth not even a penny when it comes to work or their aptitude, but who have egos the size of Texas and have issues reporting to a female boss. You can talk to them, have a "discussion", be firm, escalate the issue…but what do you do when they brazenly say they don’t care and then go on to make you look like the bad guy (or girl, in this case)?
Some people are so disgusting, you wish they didn’t exist.
The funny, or not so funny, thing is that all of this is being predicted by my daily/weekly horoscope! Or most of it in any case. Like most Indians, I too get my dose of daily/weekly horoscope from the papers. Not because I live by it or follow the ridiculous suggestions they give to help you get over the obstacles of the day. It's just one of those curiosity things...things you don't want to do but are compelled to nevertheless. Most of the times, I forget it within a minute of reading it and happily go on to read the gossip pages :)
Since a couple of weeks though I’ve been noticing that the predictions for my day have been coming true!! There’s this particular guy who features in the Times of India and things have more or less been happening as per his predictions!! It’s petrifying!!!!
He said this week I’d be hit by something that comes out of nowhere (metaphorically, of course) but it’ll be too far gone for me to do anything about it, and I’ll need to just figure my way out. And that’s exactly what's happened. It’s been a rather depressing Monday. A situation has developed completely out of the blue...something I totally did not see coming...and it’ll probably take me a week, maybe a couple of weeks to figure my way out of it. Aaaaarghhhhh!!
I wanted to write about football. Maybe on a happier day....
