Why doesn’t my office have a Barista around?

Argh…have been bored like hell. Sitting in office, that too under the constant gaze of everyone around with not much to do can put anyone to boredom. Add to this the stupid restrictions that are imposed from time to time, which makes you wonder at times if you are in a primary school. Don’t believe me, sample this - one cannot be away from workstation for long, cannot gossip in cafeteria, no smoking zones inside office, only freebies served in office-tea and coffee- have to be consumed at workstation. Working here, many times I envy the life of Tihar inmates

No wonder, many times I feel my body fluids, which are in full flow when I watch a threesome clip at night, running dry in office. With vibrancy, zest and effervescence totally lacking here, lethargy and lassitude are my only constant companions.

Add to this that I sit in an open area with my screen visible right from boss’s office, only thing he has to do is lift his eyebrow a little; also add the stares of every other soul who passes by from behind or gets up from his seat of the around 100+ workstations located on this floor. It is for this reason, that I always write my posts in a word document, which has first half page as ‘Plan of Action 2009’; from a distance it seems that I am doing some work with seriousness (and not chatting with someone or surfing on net); and if an inquisitive soul does lurk nearby, I quickly scroll up the document back to Plan of Action 2009. Suspicion does get better of people, and few of my colleagues are apprehensive of what I sometimes keep writing on my system with all seriousness.

Recently though when I had body fluids flowing with full pace was last Saturday, when I had been to Safdurjung and dropped in the market opposite IIT for lunch and beer. That place is frequented by the IIT crowd and the Barista there absolutely rocks. Inside they keep a guitar handy, along with Scrabble and other games that Barista has, which strums to some delightful music in evenings by students. Also the place has some hot and young females in attendance, many times seated on the cane chairs just outside the glass entrance, puffing away to glory and drawing grey circles around. What actually kicked in me rage and jealousy that day, was when I saw corporate offices nearby.
Now come on, why doesn’t my workplace have a Barista or IIT around?

  5. your office does sound a little sucky.. granted there is no barista near my office (well there are none in this country) but we do have a nice coffee place near my work where a few of us go to hangout when our bosses are on vaca.. but its not cool like barista.. and like you I too end up spending a lot of time on blogger at work, good thing for me, my screen only faces me, no one can else can really see what I am doing unless they step into my cube.. but you can always take a drive after work to one of those cool hangouts..

  9. Oh you poor poor thing... How badly you need to get laid...

    Can't you find a girlfriend through a friend or something?
    And it seems you need a nicer job (environment) as well, but one cannot demand that in times like these...
