Story of a lost journalist

Just another day

Filed under: Daily Rot — Cris @ 16:17

You become invisible and enter a building. You see a girl sitting with a computer. One hand holds a mobile phone, the other touches the keyboard. You reach closer and find 10 different chat windows open. You go further into the building and you find more people doing the same mobile phone – computer exercise. Some screens show games, some, social networking sites. You also find ear phones plugged into most of the ears.

That is when you hear a man’s voice from the next room. He is speaking loudly to someone. You see a blur of activities in the room. The mobile phones are thrown into bags and pockets. The screen magically changes to a white page with a lot of unreadable text they call code. The loud man passes them, and they all bow to him. He catches a glimpse of what they do, and goes to another room.

There is silence for a few minutes. The girl at the front seems to listen carefully. Finally she gives the green signal to her mates “Thumbs up, he is gone.”
The mobile phones and earphones are back; the chat windows and games resume on the screen.

You are in an IT office. The loud man is the boss. CEO, I think they call him there.



  1. no wonder you cant stick to a job…your colleagues probably hate you everywhere! speaking out the truth so loudly… i don’t think i ever want to work with you in the same office!
