A test of Patience
I know(and you too will know after reading this post) that the above image has not much connection with the post. Still, couldn't resist posting it. Anyways, imagine the below situation:
You are late to the office by 10 minutes. Still, you go directly to some end-user to sort out the problem which he reported the previous day. You solve it and he gets a call from someone and then informs you that a top guy in the company had some problem and insist you to visit him too. You go there(still you didn't even switch-on your desktop) and he's typing some mail and asks you to wait. He didn't offer you a seat and you can't sit before he offers you the seat as he's the big boss. Every two minutes, he looks at you and says "I'm sorry" for which you have smile like Miss World and he gets back into typing his mail.
After 20 long minutes(when your legs start paining and when you get those imaginary itches in your pants and you are forbidden to scratch in front of him), he looks at you, just like Amitabh Bachchan used to look at the contestants in "Kaun Banega Crorepati" when they answered the final question correctly, and says you can go ahead. But what the hell can you do if you don't know what the problem is? So you ask him what's the issue and he tells something completely irrelevant to you. What will you think at that time?
I faced the same situation today morning. By the time I reached my cubicle, I was one whole hour late.
