Across the Cubicle - Office Humors 2

Boss: Good work. Keep it up !!

Me: (looking down at my pants and then up): Sure sir! I will try my best

And I departed with a smirky face


Kamla [a colleague/Mentor] (from across the cubicle): Come here, I will show you.

Me: No I don’t want to see it

Kamla: You won’t understand until you see this. Its quite complicated

Me (with a smirk face): That must be interesting. Coming in a sec


Kamla (from across the cubicle): Take this.

Me: Its so slim dude

Kamla: Yeah I know. Now Insert it

Me: It’s not going

Kamla: let me see. Oh damn! You have inserted in the reverse position.

Me: But it was still going inside

Kamla: It goes both ways. It’s a special Pen drive

Mayank [ a colleague and only colleague ] (from the adjacent cubicle): Niiiiceeee!!


Colleague (peeing in the adjacent cubicle Urinal): Hey wassup !!

Me: (looking down at my pants and then up): Nothing much……..Literally. (Still thinking, what he meant exactly)


Overheard this conversation between two Colleague who are coincidentally room partners too

Colleague 1: Dude, I was not able to sleep last night

Colleague 2: Me too. It got really hot last night.

Colleague 1: No I am talking about all the noises you make in bed. Why you are so loud?

Colleague 2: And what about you? Why do you always have to smoke after everything?

Colleague1: lets discuss this later. First let’s talk to landlord and get the AC repair.

Me: Smiling while sitting at his desk

HA! It doesn't sound terribly boring at your work place! Kamla sounds especially good for a snarky remark or two.

Boy, the things you overhear can definitely be misunderstood, eh??
