It's been a week since I joined this company (can't take names.. company policy it seems!) and so far I can undoubtedly term it as an experience of hell on earth! I came here only to build myself a career in development and I don't think I'll last here long enough. I miss my old workplace terribly.. I miss everything about it.
First of all, I miss looking forward to coming to work. I'd always look forward to meeting my team- Calvin, Abdul, Manwar, Anandji, Abhishek and our mentor- Pandeji!
I miss having a laughter-filled lunch break. Calvin and I would always joke about the canteen food being unlimited and how we could mint money out of it! One comment from Calvin and I'd be on a laughter riot! Once, we even played table tennis in the air when no one was looking. Our rule was to not let the ball hit the table- NO MATTER WHAT! :D He's the best combo of a funny+ sweet friend I've ever met!
I miss my long philosophical conversations with Abdul. We'd get into discussions, debate on something, and then Google would solve it for us sometimes.
I miss Manwar who'd always scare me off and then himself protect me from falling into a soup..
I miss having fights with Abhishek! :D
I miss Jigy's witty comments and the way he'd make fun of my walk and my way of talking. I wish there was a Jigy at my new workplace!
It was always a pleasure talking to people like Birju, it'd leave me feeling so calm, happy and better about myself :)
I miss Krishna's innocence, his laugh and his way of saying "Dude" :D
I miss flirting with Nolan on our internal chat client. I miss Janeve too.
I miss all those little things like wearing casuals to work everyday.
I miss going for tea breaks whenever I wanted to and sipping on endless cups of tea whilst working. Here, we have to wait for ONE tea break and can't even take the cup outside the vending machine area!
I miss sitting with my team in the parking lot and laughing my heart out!
I miss everything... :(
