A Real Nice One.....

This post is a mail from my friend, I thought it was worth posting on my blog.

A butcher watching over his shop is really surprised when he sees a dog coming inside the shop. He shoos him away. But later, the dog is back again. So, he goes over to the dog and notices it has a note in its mouth. He takes the note and it reads "Can I have 12 sausages and a leg of lamb, please? The dog has money in its mouth, as well."

The butcher looks inside and, lo and behold, there is a ten dollar note there. So he takes the money and puts the sausages and lamb in a bag, placing it in the dog's mouth. The butcher is so impressed, and since it's about closing time, he decides to shut the shop and follow the dog.

So off he goes. The dog is walking down the street, when it comes to a level crossing; the dog puts down the bag, jumps up and presses the button. Then it waits patiently, bag in mouth, for the lights to turn. They do, and it walks across the road, with the butcher following him all the way.

The dog then comes to a bus stop, and starts looking at the timetable. The butcher is in awe as the dog stops a bus by pulling its left leg up and gets in it. The butcher follows the dog into the bus. The dog then shows a ticket which is tied to its belt to the bus conductor. The butcher is nearly fainting at this sight, so are the other passengers in the bus. The dog then sits near the driver's seat looking outside. As soon as the stop is in sight, the dog stands and wags its tail to inform the conductor. Then, without waiting for the bus to stop completely, it jumps out of the bus and runs to a house very close to the stop.

It opens the big Iron Gate and rushes inside towards the door. As it approaches the wooden door, the dog suddenly changes its mind and heads towards the garden. It goes to the window, and beats its head against it several times, walks back, jumps off, and waits at the door. The butcher watches as a big guy opens the door, and starts abusing the dog, kicking him and punching him, and swearing at him. The butcher surprised with this, runs up, and stops the guy.

"What in heaven's name are you doing? The dog is a genius. He could be on TV, for the life of me! "To which the guy responds: "You call this clever? This is the second time this week that this stupid dog's forgotten his key."

Moral of the story.....

"You may continue to exceed on lookers expectations but shall always fall short of the boss' expectations."

It's a dog's life after all.....

While I Study

Now at this hour I am blogging when I was thinking just a while ago that I am not gonna blog for few days or say 3 weeks and no orkuttiiinnnnggg.....y? What a question, my defence date is coming and I should be working seriously now, this is what goes in mind now and then and after some time, that is exactly after working for 15 minutes I feel wow I am working so hard I need a break, and am so tired also, Should have a nap or listen to songs or chat with some one online or on phone and tell them how hard I was working on my project and just thought of relaxing.

Call from my sister

Sister: wht ya doing?
Me: working on my project.
She's amazed, surprised and after a minute says ,
Sister: Y?,Is the date nearing, (coz she has never seen me working on anything seriously.)
Me: Avunu, eppudu koda work cheyaka pothe bagudho ani chestuna.(i.e Yes, if I won't work now also, It doesn't look nice, thts y)

One of my friend
Prathyusha, plzz I want to see you working on your project for atleast one hour seriously
Me: with a smile yeah, from tomorrow am gonna do it seriously.
He gave up on me

This was engineering it was very rare that I ever read at home, my dad used to drop me at bus stop. If he see's a book in my hand instead inside the bag, he used to assume I have got an exam.
Environment at my home when I was reading.
  • Everyone is calm.
  • My dad shuts down the TV which is nearly 3 rooms away from my room.
  • And there comes food directly to the table, fruits, juices, snacks etc....(yeah, coz I am studying guys, I got an external exam next day and am tired)
  • If my mom speaks a little louder, my dad says, hey talk slowly chinni(thts me) is studying don't disturb.

It was only in bus that i used to read, a journey of more than hour to college, thats when I used to get the feel to read something, when in bus I used to see everyone read. I used to take my book and think am gonna start reading after bus leaves Lunger House, Y? coz u can't see people on road after that. After that I used to think next is the military area. It looks awesome I will read after that. Then I used to think after VJIT, and JBIET I will read. By the time I used to feel sleepy or hungry, I used to open box eat share with others. Then the Shabad/Chevella turning comes where u get to see the sunflowers, so no one should miss this. Then its almost the college view now, I think gosh I wasted time, instead I could have studied n then start asking everyone hey plz tell me the important topics in for the exam. Then as usual write some nonsense in the exam and pray to God plzzzzzzzzzzz this time , next time I gonna read as I learnt a lesson now. I have learnt this lesson so many times and everytime think next time am gonna be serious.
And this time its gonna be the last time, coz academically I am not gonna study anymore.
My dad used to think that I was gonna fail in +2 itself and be at home, coz he loves maths n used to hate it, as I used to get very less marks. because I used to read or rather see n go for exam instead of practicing. He's still not able come out of the shock that I really completed enggineering and about to complete master's too.
Back to work, atleast for this time am gonna work seriously, hmm....I am not gonna study again, thts y??........looks like a silly reason , oh ya but thts how I prepare myself to work.
Dunno y I don't get the interest until last moment and then only do I actually understand the concepts, even if I try to study few days before the exams it doesn't go into head. Just before the exam when I read I feel everythings going into head so nicely :)

Back to blogging after my defence. I pray to God " Be with me this time".
