When you know there are lots of things pending!He came to the office much earlier today. He was on leave and thought of finishing the pending works as early as possible. He usually carries his lunch, but he couldn't bring the lunch today because he was in a hurry. Going to the office much earlier when lots of things are pending is more important to him than carrying the lunch pack. Today, he can have his lunch at the canteen also.
Actually, this is a pretty normal phenomenon and at times we had to forgo things keeping in mind the present situation. He went straight to his room and logged on to the system. When you are handling an important portfolio, it is well understood that the mailbox will be flooded with e-mails. He had to check every e-mail and respond to them accordingly. By this time, he noticed that there are a lot of files on his table kept for his perusal. Compared to the e-mails, the number of files is much lesser so he started to examine the files one by one. He needs to check every page of the file to maintain the continuity and if required, he needs to add one more page to the file with his feedback.
Well, the above-mentioned incident can be a normal practice but it has a stark similarity with ISC forums. When you are absent from ISC for a certain period, you will notice many threads. Take each file as the title of the thread, the first page inside the file is the body of the thread, the rest of the pages are responses of the members and the note you are sticking to the file is your own response. When you are handling the file for the first time, you have to to go through all of the pages before making your comment. Though the number of pages in the file can be much more, there is a similarity.
