12 days only

Posted by Alta on January 12, 2009

Its been a good start to the new year but a bloody slow one,work is slow but good,if you manage to sell cars in times like these something is going right for you.

But the stop start weeks do not help,and work really is slow,so its boring.Then this customer today offers me a job today,has a company that deals with anything under water,so ships that sink or the deep sea cables.

Says he is looking for someone who is good with computers,speaks decent English and can be an all rounder like for him,as his last guy left and that i can learn a lot from him and what not.

I was more then happy to hear his offer and so i asked him ke whats the pay,and he says oh we can talk about it at my office,tum kal zaroor aoo.I will sure but still i would like to know,Rs 14,000 to start with,9 am to 6 pm,6 days a week,but its a great opportunity for you etc etc

Before i could say anything some one else who is at the showroom with me jumped in,probably thinking ke aaj we si he alta kuta kha ke behta hai and now this uncle comes in at 8 pm and pagal bana raha hai for the last hour.

I wouldnt have said anything mean or rude to him,would have just thanked him and said no,i mean he was just being nice i guess and he was under the impression ke i am just a sales person there,so not his fault at all (that i look like monkey),haan in return i would have offered him a job with me as a joke thats for sure.

Did sell him a car in the end,the job offer is still there if i wish to take it,i might just give him a visit when i am bored 😀

But yes been one of those days,dad and i have had our bust up today twice in the last 2 hours,and i am sure there will be more,i guess its high time too we have been too nice to each other and havent had a fight for some time now.

Time for tea 🙂

New Year new start

Posted by Alta on January 2, 2009

Had no idea that new year would start like this for me,waking up a 7 am (normal for many yes,but i am one of those lucky few who walks in to work at 1pm or 2 pm and i am back home by 9 pm max) and working through the day till 8 30 pm or so and back home.

I have not been up this early for the last 3 or 4 years,normally go to bed around 3 or 4am and wake up at 11am or so,have been in bed by 11.30pm and up at 7 am,no fun but not too bad either 🙂

I am lazy,but if i have to do something and set my mind to it then thats it have to do it (pats self on the back) and in this case have to do it,reward might not be there short term but 3 or 4 years down the line it will be worth it.And for those wondering if i am going back to school no i am not,well i am but not to study 😉

So right now its not clear if this new thing will work out or not,its up in the air but either way i do plan on going in at 8 am for a few weeks and make some changes.So this month will be busy and fun 🙂

Work has been slow over the last 2 months,though still a few sales here and there so cant complain.Issues as always and its been one of those weeks,crazy and silly things but problems still that need to be sorted.

So all in all a very mixed start to the new year,long week,long days,will be a long month,but better then being bored with nothing to do at all 🙂

(something is wrong with me,i should not be all smiles and enjoying all this extra work and should be complaining like i normally would)
