A mentor, guide and a friend...

My Boss almost died today after getting a near fatal shock! He is alright now and declared out of danger. Thank God for the visiting Doctor who was in the building at the same time. It is funny how momentary and fleeting are the moments we call life. He is such a nice boss and a gentleman to boot. You are the best Mr. MK

Footnote: Mr. M. K wasn’t electrocuted or anything like that. Just that he saw a certain Silverine at her desk at the stroke of 9:30 am today.

( I am sorry boss. What to do, I got up early and so came to office on time. I didn’t mean any harm. Pliz don’t hate me :( )

:p

Alexis Leon said...

If he is your boss and have successfully survived your pranks so far, I don't think there is much in the world that would put him in danger :-)

Immigrant in Canada said...

When I used to work.. my MD often greeted me "Good afternoon Sarah, was it the traffic that gave you so much problmes, or did you have yet another tire puncture??".. BTW I stayed 10 mints away from the hospital!
Sending Karma to Mr.MK.. He needs plenty to survive.. when you are there working..

You did spring a surprise :), for once I did wonder how your post was so short, but its amazing that you can still be funny with such a short piece. Amazing!

Dhanush said...

Browser said...

I agree with ganja turtle - Let's do it again. This time actually do some work!! That should be hit him the hardest :-)

Browser said...

BTW I'm one of the early ones and I do get a slight surprise on the rare event that I do see someone from my team working before 10:00

Reshmi said...

lol..:)
planning to give more such shocks in future?

Kautilya said...

Wake up early? whats that?
It happened with me.. coz.. I wake up @ noon and drag my ass to work.. when my boss has gone for lunch...

so yeah one day.. I wake up @ 7 by mistake, and get my ass to work by 8, then he almost died...

and, all my colleagues, fainted... eventually that day was declared a holiday...

Arti Honrao said...

What u did was absolute wrong and rude... how could u do that to ur own boss???

Now,
Never ever dare to reach office on time. Even if u get up early spend more time in bathroom singing "aashiq banaaya aapne"

Mind Curry said...

apparently mr.mk survived after seeing a certain blogspot page open on miss.silverine's comp, instead of any work page. that actually jolted back his heart to life. his physician also advised him to go to work after 9:30am henceforth, just as a precaution, even if he doesnt stop smoking or eating oily food. concerned employees also sent in suggestions like "keep silverine at office atleast till after 8pm", "send her beer every night"..
the MK fans association condemned the incident and demanded that silverines desk be moved to the other end of the building.
MK, when asked about the near fatal incident, said "people make mistakes in their youth"

starry nights said...

Silverine. you better not give him too many shocks because one day he may really keel over, and that will be sad being he is such a nice boss.

shruti said...

@ mindcurry .. that was too good man ...humor again lingering everywher ..
@silvy - good girl ..i always walk in late ...till now sir's not got any attacks.. he he ...infact my fin prof used to have jokes based on me cos i always walked in at 9.30 for a 9 o clock classs,,, once i walked in for an exam five mins late to realise that itwas over as it was a 5 min teaser

During my previous job that lasted 37 months, I once went to my office at the stroke of the hour and my boss was overwhelmed with happiness... He said that he would die peacefully now that he had seen me come on time... But his happiness didnot last long as I sent out my resignation letter with a short fall of 10 days in my notice period ;-) ..

silverine said...

Mind Curry: I am sending you the Login and Password for Poomanam..You will surely do a better job than me. Hats off!!! Doc you are the best :) This was rofl stuff!!!

Ms Scissors: If you are reading this, pls contact ASAP , I need your 'cutting edge' services :|

Shruthi:Thank you, I will follow your advice and 'always' walk in late. Birds of a feather... he he :)

Starry nights: That rhymed girl!!!!

Anon2: LOL my boss said "for Gods sake I have small children, have pity on them!!" So I have decided for his sake that I won't do shocking things like 'working' and coming on time.

Kusum Rohra said...

@Silverine: Aare no squirming OK just do the tag even if its minus the partners bit :)

@Mindcurry: Eh can i send you my password and Login to blogspot too?? :)

Jiby said...

lol...that was funny...glad to hear ur boss survived!!!

while i was working part-time at univ i had to reach work one day at 9:00am...woke up at 2pm and casuaqlly strolled in at 4:00 and all my boss said was, "Good you came, even if ur late plz try to make it in here, ur not coming wud be a bigger disaster".

i wondered for a second if he was mocking me or said it in all seriousness...later he got so used to my absence he let me work from india while i was on vacation!!!

I had a special rule introduced...that of one day's pay deduction for coming late thrice a month...I take whole credit for it...and guess what? I will be moving out in another week, leaving my colleagues to bear the burden of my sins...

silverine said...

San: I am guilty of gross misconduct I know :(
