Another Friday afternoon post!

Here's another Friday afternoon post -

I read this saying on another guy's screen saver -
"Life's like a clean toilet bowl, you spend all your time finding one and then cleaning it up so that someone else can use it!!"
It's good that our clients have pretty decent sense of humour or else this guy would have been sacked!!!

But, do you really think so?

And, when I asked him about it, this is what he has to say -
"Isn't it true? Do you wait in queue here in the ladies room or do you go in search of an empty, clean cubicle?"
I told him - "it depends, if I'm there chit chatting with a friend, I will wait, else, I will go down a floor for a clean and empty one."
So, he says - "there you go! Life's like that too... we go looking and make our opportunities, people who seldom wait outside a closed door, achieve anything significant.
The ones who see if the door can be pushed open are the achievers..."

I don't know what to say to all of this, but the comment space is all yours!
Do you agree?
Or do you think, like how I do, that the guy has his wiring slightly mixed up in his brain?!!!

Too heavy to give it a thought on a friday afternoon :)

Anonymous said...

I think you are crazy to have posted something like this.

Rashmi said...

Agree with swati..too heavy thought...didnt understand what he want to convey :-)

rayshma said...

i agree with the guy. does make sense. but then, my wiring isn't really in place! ;)

rayshma said...

wrt anon's comment: if ppl don't like what they read, dunno why they bother to comment. i'm vella and even i wouldn't have the time to go thru the trouble!

Ersa said...

hmmm...as Swati as mentioned, this is really heavy stuff for Friday...so i'm gonna let this go :-P and not bother pondering now...maybe will come back here Monday afternoon with a better comment? ;-)

Pixie said...

@everyone: LOL!!!
I know.. its a bit too heavy...

and anon - go and take a hike somewhere!! and get lost! :P

Just a grail said...

pixie- I think that it is true. If you don't go looking for good stuff you won't get it.

Anon- I think crazy is when you make stupid comments like that.

Solilo said...

Pixer, What is with this loo mania? First Mandu and now you too. :D

Have a good weekend.

Galadriel said...

i agree with him too.. it all boils down to waiting for opportunity to come knocking on your door or making an opportunity for yourself. your pick!

Galadriel said...

P.S.: Pix, do you know who that Anon is? And if you don't then why approve his/her comment? And if you do, then why does he/she comment anonymously? Something to think about, that's all.

Pixie said...

@G: I am not too sure who this "anon" is...
I usually don't publish any of these anon-weird insulting comments, but this time - I didn't read it completely and hit publish.
So, just left the comment there later on, since I didn't want more unwanted unpublished comments...
some of them have been done in poor taste pretty badly.

mohit said...

you know, I think I lost the appetite to write !

wudn't it have been better to compare life to a chocolate bar rather than the above? ;)

but yeah, life can't wait.... if one door's busy, u gotta grab the next available 'clean' one .... shrugs....

illusionaire said...

Here's what I do. I see a dirty loo and there is absolutely no other place to pee, and it came down to the dirty loo or my pants, I chose the dirty loo. And no I dont clean up after I use it, and I wont clean up after I use it. Screw the next person who's gonna use it, coz the "dirt" is not mine in the first place.

See I'm just being honest. And dirty. Coz you've just made me dirty. And not in a sexy way.

lolzzzzzzz. :-)

Indyeah said...

too heavy a thought like someone said ..so only read it before:))
and now that I am here still cant figure out what the guy wanted to say...
so will go with you :D and say yeah!he has his wiring mixed up coz the message got lost in there...



on a diff note:D

what was a certain someone doing going around reading people's screensavers:P:P


(((hugs))):D

Pixie said...

@illusionaire: LOLZZ!! that's too much info dude! :D

@ Indyeah: LOL!!Well, in my defense, it wAS Friday afternoon and I had stopped by his desk to chit chat!! :D

writerzblock said...

How did I miss this post?!

I have to agree with Mohit...why didnt you guys choose a chocolate bar, or a shower room at a gym? Or is the loo thingy for mass appeal ;-)

On a serious note, I do think that those who wait, might be losers. But those who push the door are most likely fools. I mean, what else can one expect in a loo???? That too in India!

So either way, leave the loo as fast as u can and spend the time at the Cafe instead.

On a lighter note, I am so glad I finished lunch first and then booted the computer ;=)))

Renu said...

I would never push doors, but nevr clean even:), would wait to come home:)

There are certain things I can nevr do for nothing..whether its achievement or anything.

hitchwriter said...

I think the guy has some wires mixed... no doubt !

and I also wonder about the one who is posting on this... well well...

Bhagooooooooooooo,....

mandira said...

Indian Homemaker said...

To Anonymous - And how not-crazy are you to leave this comment?

Indian Homemaker said...

LOL I never thought my life could be compared to a clean toilet bowl! It would mean it is regularly flushed with acidic cleaners? That is takes a lot of err crap...

DewdropDream said...

Howdy howdy howdy? Long time no post... tumba busy na?

Pixie said...

@DDD: yea... this week was very hectic! lots of work...

claytonia vices said...

What we think life is, it becomes. So I guess if someone thinks it is all about cleaning toilet bowls for others, then that will become their reality! LOL!!
