Of Carrots

I'm always amazed at the sudden increase in the value of an employee as soon as he informs those above of his intention to leave. Thats around the time when the higher ups suddenly think about increasing his portfolio (if he is leaving out of sheer boredom) or removing stuff from his plate (if he is leaving because he is overworked)... Whichever way it is, the employee is suddenly flooded with stuff that is supposed to entice him to stay...
And then, unless it was a well planned effort by the employee to force his superiors to improve his condition, it goes this way that, in response to all the halwas, the employee says,
"mujhe gajar pasand nahi hai"

until next time, Hari Sadu, H for Hitler, A for Arrogant.... :)

I'll tell my boss that I am leaving. But, I have a feeling that they'll aceept it with a smile.

On second thoughts, I won't leave. Can't trust Manus.

Job hopping so common that they will find a hopper to park himself / herself in the seat you have hopped out of !

havent u heard ..the difference betwwn an apparaisal and an exit intvu?
In the former u tell ur manager ur strenghts and u get to hear all ur weaknesses , in the latter - your manager repeats all ur strengths :-))
