Evolution

Had a hilarious day at my work place....Happened two days back...was laughing continuously till now...currently it has reduced to occasional bursts...people around me are thinking I'm having a facial spasm...seeing my contorted expression of suppressed grin...anyway now I am steady enough to put pen to paper ...rather, finger to keyboard..so decided to record the event for posterity...

Discussion of a lowly species (as low in the eco-system as you can imagine...) on dreams of spontaneous evolution (jus to ensure survival) with the scientist doing the experiments... (hereinafter fondly called PM...no, no, me not in IT industry...)Scientist acts according to what is suitable to her...Still, hope is universal...so the lowly species (hereinafter LS) tries...

PM: So what are your expectations?
LS: What about a paid European Tour?
PM: *growls*
LS (duly chastened): What about paid weekend trips to hometown?
PM: Tell you what, significant experiments on evolution happen over weekends, you can't afford to miss them ....so aim high....let me experiment on you 24*7*365...mind you, even at the end of it there are no guarantees...
LS: *nods her head*

PM: What is the one thing that you've always wanted to do, but never got a chance?
LS (significantly brightening up at the potential opportunity to preen her hitherto hidden talents): "I'd like to enhance the collective intelligence of the firm"
PM (frowning at how hopeless a species she has in hand) : mmm
LS (mistaking the 'mmm' of disgust with the 'mmm' of encouragement): "I have an action plan..."

PM (stopping LS with a generous wave of hand): I can tell you an action plan that works...You should agree with nonsense, lick, suck, and do whatever else is required to convince idiots that they are great .....in fact u can even try changing ur morning greeting from a smug smile to a double bent over bow combined with "aap mahan ho" whenever you meet them....
LS: doubly benting over and pleasantly uttering "aap mahan ho"

Well the evolution has already started....

Process in progress was act 1 of the annual tamasha known as appraisal...goal setting.
And PM for Performance Manager...

Well, the truth was stranger than the fiction above...but infinitely less interesting.....
