Sticky Cris sticky Cris, what are they feeding you!

After the bank-visit day I thought I was free from embarrassing moments for a long time. I forgot I was one born for sticky situations! Cut out for it. If they didn’t come to me, I went in search of them.

I was sitting sadly as the clock went past midnight. I just had a spoon of mixed fruit jam and wanted to have more. Angel Cris said “No there is just enough for breakfast tomorrow! Don’t be selfish” and Devil Cris said “Go lavish babe! Lick the jar out!” I hated it when Angel Cris wins over Devil Cris and today was one such day. Devil Cris is always so much more fun!

So here I was trying to forget the red color of that sweet jelly thing (I wont mention the j-word for self-control maintenance reasons). I saw a recently made contact online in my messenger and decided to divert myself to a few pleasantries. All I knew about this person was he worked where I did before I got jobless and I somehow had assumed he was a junior of mine. I was an SE by designation and the just senior position was called a PA in my work-place. This person was working hard it seemed to me and I offered in way of consolation, “Don’t worry it wont be so hard once you become a PA and above”. I was going to elaborate on lazy PAs who never worked and yawned all day. This was always the line juniors use with regard to seniors in any office. But most people with a little sense would never use a line about the subject to the subject.

It turned out I was talking to a PA. And a senior PA in that. Leave it to me to land into these situations so perfectly. Well it did one good thing. It took my mind off jams… oh darn I had to think of that again! Now we are back to square one with the additional memory of a conversation I could have done without! What a beautiful night!



  1. Keep lil notes on each contacts in messenger…Like who they are actually! 😀 It can save u from future embarrassments !!

  5. It happens.. The best thing is that it will keep happening again and again..

    Something similar happend when I joined my present company. Assuming I came directly from India, a guy started to give lecture on Warranty, a pretty long one. And as I found this guy had no intention to stop, I asked how long he has been working in warranty to which. He answered. Proudly ” 6 Months “. Then he asked me whether. I have prior workexperience , for which I Noded and told him, “Yes.. 7 Years”.
