With high hopes and ambitions to rock the corporate world, the IT sector in India witnesses the highest number of aspirants entering the industry every day. All excited to enter the everyday fast-paced life of a 9 to 5 job, we all set foot into our offices with dreams bigger than a skyscraper. What we often miss to see is that adulting presents each one of us with the same story. But every story is unique through the experiences that these box-shaped Cubicles have to offer. To showcase the narrative of a conventional office goer, The Viral Fever (TVF) introduces a not-so-regular story of CUBICLES, that will make you go – “THIS IS ME”
· A ‘SUPER FRIENDLY’ boss
We can all agree that we all have a love-hate relation with our bosses. More often than not, their sarcasm is enough to tell us that we need to ABORT-ABORT-ABORT the conversation. They know exactly how to get the job done, at the same time, end up teaching and inspiring us with their words of wisdom.
· Extra cooperative colleagues
Always with their ears ready to listen to our rants, it’s not tough to find your set of people who you can call your gang in this world of high glass doors. Although, the same colleagues have a weird way of supporting each other. Be it from showing you the mirror of reality to confusing you for even the smallest of things. These extra co-operative set of acquaintances are a support-system you just don’t want to get rid of.
· A well-wishing senior
You know that one person who is always snubbing you off and you don’t know why? For no reason at all, this individual always comes up with new and creative ways to belittle you. As impressive as his one-liners are, you are left with no-comebacks and have to deal with the embarrassment. If you haven’t come across a well-wisher like that, you are one lucky chap or turns out, you might just want to ask if it is you.
· The daily struggle at the entrance
If you have ever been denied access to enter the office and were faced with rejection at the door itself, you have officially entered the corporate world. Be it a bio-metric scan or an ID card reader or just the old-fashioned watchman at the door, we all know the brawl that unravels before entering. Because why should the boss have all the fun?
· Always winning the self-doubt game
No matter how hard you try and finish the job, the world will come crashing down on you. There’s always going to be days when you think you’re incompetent, worthless and don’t know how to fix things ever. Well, my friend, we’re very much in the same boat. As difficult as it is already, people around you will try to put you down further, but it’s the will to keep going on that’s going to take you to places. Just remember, you are not alone!
