A game of Table Tennis

I am going to tell you all how the game of Table Tennins is played in the world of software engineers...
Here goes, you are the unfortunate ball in the middle and you have your tls/pms on either side, hitting you hard and ferociously like they were playing as if their life depended on how hard you get hit!!!
Now, you may think... why am I talking like this?? The reason for me not blogging for like 8 days is because I was stuck in the middle like the poor table tennis ball... even if the ball goes out of bounds, it gets brought back and hit once again!!!
I could even comapare it to the apes in Mysore Zoo... you know, there are 3-4 of them in a huge enclosure and the big ones always gang up on the smallest ape... I remember this scene when I had gone to the zoo when i was a kid...
Whenever the small ape approaced the big one, it used to get smacked on the head!! and the small ape used to scuttle off to this corner... then after a while, the big apes drag it back and smack it again!! and in the midst of all this, you have the people standing outside the enclosure all pointing and laughing...
Thats the life I had been leading for the past one week!!! Well, now that i off to greener pastures in a different company, I just hope that God gives me the sense of humour to turn back one day when Im old and laugh off everything!
Till then, its just praying and hoping for the best!! But, one thing is sure... when Im a TL such things aint happening to my team mates!
