Meeting after meeting-but no eatingSince yesterday, I have been attending meeting after meeting, within our own Ministry and most of the time, outside the Ministry in other offices. As most of you know, I generally don't want to interact with people, but during the last two days I have been forced to attend the meetings.
So, I have to shave everyday (horrible!), comb my fast-depleting hair (disgusting!), wear freshly ironed shirts and trousers (extremely uncomfortable!) and attend the meetings. Needless to say, for some meetings I have to prepare a lot, especially when my Office failed to achieve the target or meet the deadline.
After sacrificing my personal liberty considerably in the aforestated manners, I attend the meetings with only one small expectation, to enjoy some good snacks with coffee. But unfortunately, now, at the very beginning of the financial year, most of the Govt. Offices have not received adequate funds. As a result, there has been drastic cut in the Budget Heads "Office Expenses" (OE) and "Other Administrative Expenses" (OAE). So, there has been drastic cut also in snacks being served during the meetings.
Disgusted, I myself purchased some good snacks while returning from office. Now I am writing this thread while enjoying these snacks.
