Motichur 'ka' laddu!!

Steps to be followed to get a laddu
  • Befriend the girl who is quitting the company, either a day before or on the day she is quitting
  • Congratulate her on her wise decision to leave and join her husband where ever he is.
  • Lament the fact that you still have to sit here and work while she has fun.
  • Walk by her desk a 100 times, if not more, as soon as she opens the sweet box.
  • On the pretext of talking to her cubicle mate, walk by and make inane conversation.
  • Smile at her and ask if all relieving formalities are done.
  • By this time, she would have realised that you are eyeing the laddus and nothing else!
  • She will smile and offer the laddu to u... refuse as gracefully as possible.. Since she is also an expert in such acts, she will persist... pick up one laddu as delicately as possible and murmur a thank you!
  • Remember to Walk away without skipping! Skipping in office after collecting sweets doesn't create a very good impression!

Mission Accomplished! :))


Edited to add: Title has been changed after Dew Drop told me it's motichur 'ka' laddu! :)
