The few people you meet in haven..ahem work !

We come across different types of people in life - friends, family and at work. I don’t want to talk about family or friends and lose my readership ( I only have a handful reading it now). So lets get to work weirdos who would never read this blog. hehe. “yenna aanatha udungappa”


This guy walks in to work everyday at the same time, eats at the same time and leaves at the same time, views the same website everyday and all his shirts are either white or blue or a combination of white and blue. In detail, he walks in to work 8:30 everyday, browses sports news in “The Age” website for few minutes and then gets to work. You can never hear him, even when he is on the phone, he is absolutely quiet.At 12:03 you would see him next to microwave, heating his lunch or walking down the stairs to get food from café downstairs. Read general news from “The age” and “Sydney Morning Herald”. Leaves at 4:30, everyday. What is worse, when he works from home he starts at 8:00, allll the time. I have never seen him browse any other websites, speak loudly, eat late, step out for lunch ( I will check menu in the café, if I don’t like what is there, I will drive to the nearest shopping centre for lunch). For one week I had to sit next to this and it was horrible coz he wouldn’t chichat.


This guy is the loudest in the level 3. When I walk out of the elevator I know if he is in the office or not for sure. He is always on the phone talking (trust me ..always). Once I had to work in the ‘hot desk’ and I was praying he should not come in to work that day, but he sat right behind me and then it was all ‘start music’. I also heard him call his partner/wife I think and was saying how much work he has and how he was going to be late that evening. Then I saw him just walking up and down chit chatting.


This girl is sure the loner in the level 3. I have never seen her speak to any one.
Once she was standing next to me and said something and I almost answered, when I saw the Bluetooth on her ear ! You would have seen people listening to ipod in trains, while jogging, even in their desk, but not while you are walking inside the office. She walks around with the ipod. I have seen her sitting alone in the discussion tables working through spreadsheets.


Okay. I am being rude here. This is a nice Asian guy and each time I meet him in the kitchen he asks me for Indian cooking, recipes and restaurants. There is something about him that sort of gives a girlish feel. I have always seen him conversing with other women about similar topics and one day while I was waiting in the lights I saw him walk across with this huge ladies bag in his shoulders. Hehe and he wears this shiny black very pointed shoes like a ladies cut shoe. There is something about this guy.

funny...i am the loner. I listen to my mp3 player, and sometimes, feel too lazy to remove the headphone just for walking up to the printer. So yes, i do walk around the office with headphones!
