On mobile (hold on tight this is going to be a long one)
Hello all, thanks for the love and support you guys gave to my last post and thanks for the advises. I’ll try my best to correct my previous mistakes.
In my last post I didn’t gave any of my personal info so let me set up the scene for you guys. I am from India and I work as computer operator for a semi-government office. For you who might not understand what’s semi-government office is? its policies are like any regular government office (like salaries, wedges etc.) but we work as autonomous entity, even we answer to other government corporate/ offices.
So when I joined my office as computer operator in 2016 first thing hit me that I have to understand the terminology they’ve been using. It took me about couple of months to have that knowledge.
Before I joined, there was only one computer operator working like one man army who also helped and trained me. Since I live alone far away from my home town I have nothing to worry I would just wake up around 6:30 am complete some work on my laptop (if I’ve bought something for me to work on) make something to eat and go to office and start working.
Fast forward 4 years –
Till this time I’ve become more than competent and I’m doing great! Yaay.
Fast forward to feb 2020 (right before shit/corona storm hit us)
Don’t know what happened my current big boss transferred me to one of our regional office. Okay I’m cool less burden on me and then on march everything starts closing so now I have no place to live where I’ve been transferred. I’ve to go back to my home town where we also have one of our regional offices very close by.
April 2020 mostly working from home and I got a call from unknown number a lady talking and ordering me to make some formats?
Me = me
BB = Big Boss (Managing Director)
RB = Regional Boss
Mentor = who trained me
BWNB = Babe/Boobs With No Brain
And following conversation ensues:
Me: Hello (me) speaking!
BWNB: hello BWNB speaking from HO. BB gave me your number and told me to forward you a mail so you can do this and that!
Me: what? Who are you?
BWNB: this is BWNB speaking from HO and I’m new recruit and BB told me to tell you make this and that!
Me: Okay! When did you joined?
BWNB: that’s none of your business! Just make this and that and mail it to HO!
Me: Got it!
So I make the formats in excel file and mailed. Next day again same number blaring.
BWNB: hey its BWNB! you sent me formats and didn’t fill the columns.
Me: I don’t know about what data other offices have!
BWNB: but why didn’t you fill up your own data?
Me: Have you checked the sheet 2?
BWNB: okay I have your data. But how does it work?
Me: excuse me? You fill up columns with formulas and then you filter to get the actual numbers!
BWNB: what formulas I’ve to use?
Me: (chuckling) I don’t know. whatever works for you I guess?
BWNB: I don’t have time for this. Send me the actual file you worked on or I’m going tell BB you don’t help! *(What I send was only numbers I didn’t send the actual file which I made for me to make it easy.)*
Me: I don’t think that will help your cause.
BWNB: I don’t know? Just send me the actual files!
Me: sent. *(I mailed right away by knowing she’s not going to get to the numbers)*
next day on phone:
BWNB: what you sent doesn’t work! How do you get to those numbers you filled?
Me: *(very calmly)* you fill up the first columns of format and let the formulas do their work and then you filter.
BWNB: bullshit! It doesn’t work that way.
Me: then make it work your way, there is nothing I can do from here!
BWNB: I’m sending you the data’s from other offices and you make it work!
Me: sorry BWNB! I have my own works to do. I can’t help you with that. That’ll take at least whole day! *(Actually not)*
BWNB: I have to submit those in 2 days and you’re gonna do it or I’ll let know BB you don’t help.
Me: okay! Go ahead tell him. *(This time I know that she’s just bitching cuz that’s her job and she can’t force that to me so I just sit back and relax)*
Same noon I got call from RB I’ve to go HO with BB for some help and I said okay. *(BB lives in my home town so every second day he’s visits HO by road)*
Next day I join BB in his car and went to HO. As soon as I entered the building I saw a girl about 25 with some curvy features sitting in front of **my computer and in my chair**, no big deal.
I asked BB I’ll get the data and start working. BB nods and I go to *(my)* computer room and asked where all data’s are.
BWNB: (not recognizing me) asked if I’m here to help?
BWNB: here on this computer.
Me: thank you!
So I put my pen drive in and start working while BWNB watching me sitting by my side, asking no questions what so ever, I fill up the columns and filter than sum up all numbers in couple of hrs and we’re done.
BWNB: are we done?
BWNB: but the guy on phone said it’ll take whole day.
Me: could have taken whole day but I came up prepared so it didn’t.
*I know HO mail ID and password so I downloaded all data’s and already started working on them yesterday. Actually it’s not my job but I love my work so I did it . I felt this might fall into my lap sooner or later.*
BWNB: well, that was easy. Thanks for help!
And now enters my mentor and he’s happy to see me again.
Mentor: So you joining HO again bro? You know I could use some of your help.
Me: me naah just here to help with some problems.
BWNB: (to mentor) do you know him?
Mentor: yeah. He’s our old operator whom you replaced, you know him right? He’s (Rudyboi). You talked to him yesterday. He’s currently working at that office. He’s your senior.
***BWNB jaw drops, now she understands, who I am and how I did all those things without even asking her a question. I gave her a smile printed the data and gave it to BB. He signed and called BWNB to scan and mail those to related offices.***
I left with BB in evening, having a grin on face all the way to home.
There are few other incidents occurred after this I would like to share them but till then peace out.
