We also have an Instant Messenger service.

Here are some of the stranger conversations I’ve had on this thing

 

BACKSTORY : This was the day they were going to announce the verdict on Babri Masjid. I was too busy to watch the news

4:53 PM ME:

Any News ?

4:54 PM RIDICULOUS COLLEAGUE

No idea. If they’re giving it for some agricultural purpose then I am interested

If you’re wondering why this is strange, it’s because my job is literally the polar oppositie of farming. Except of course, if we were talking about something like wheat hedges.

BACKSTORY: This colleague is British. The role of ridiculous colleague is played by me.

1:45 PM RIDICULOUS COLLEAGUE (ME):

Good luck for your meeting with CLIENT XXX today.

1:46 PM RANDOM COLLEAGUE

I think I’m just going to concentrate on the lunch

1:48 PM RIDICULOUS COLLEAGUE (ME):

Yeah do that! Don’t forget to stuff some food in your pants

1:49 PM RANDOM COLLEAGUE

MY PANTS ?

1:50 PM RIDICULOUS COLLEAGUE (ME):

Umm yeah. Or your shirt. You know ..whatever

1:52 PM RANDOM COLLEAGUE

Ahh. I think you mean trousers. Pants mean boxers in England.

 EPIC FAIL!!!

BACKSTORY: Sometimes you get the feeling you’re being hit on but you can never really tell.

Damned text speak.
