Why Me? – 2

Seriously such things happen only to me

So I subscribe to books for Librarywala and those guys deliver it at work whenever I request

On Friday, I requested for a book and they sent it to me

So I keep the book carefully on top of my school bag which is placed right next to the wall

I open the bag to remove money to give to the chaiwala when..when..when

That book falls in the narrow space between the wall and desk

I am astonished that the book could go there…I try removing the book with my hands but end up putting it further down

I try to use my notepad to remove it and it goes further down
I look around to see if anyone is watching me..

Phew! no one yet..

So I fall on my knees and start cajoling the book to come out muttering to myself and then trying to remove the book with my pudgy hands

I fail.

I get a scale from the girl in the next cubicle pretending that I have to look into some complex excel printouts…and then try again

by that time, the lady sitting opposite to me, looks at me quizzically…

Errr..my book is stuck here..

She comes to my desk and says..here…how did it go here
I look at her saying I dont know..I just looked and it went down
She didnt look very convinced but tried to take it out

Now, the guy sitting behind me is asking her what happened…I start to pretend that its not my book

The guy sitting in the next cubicle comes and asks what the problem is whereas a group of guys discussing the solenoid valve stop and look at my direction

I pretend to walk away from the place..actually looking for one of the peons who can help me

When I tell the peon what happened he looks at me as if I am deranged or something…

Aisa kaisse hua madam…

I tell him to come with me

So I bring him back to see four people have crowded around my desk and are trying to remove the book…almost half the floor is looking at my direction wondering what I did

I look around sheepishly telling people..my book fell you know

and most of them look at me with pity thinking this lady’s head is a bit gone

the four people are still working on it and by this time 20 minutes have passed and they have managed to push the book further in

The peon looks at me with disbelief on how I have managed to do this.

I shrug my shoulders and ask him to move the table of the cubicle

but madam yeh toh hilega nahi..yeh toh permanent hai

I start to panic a bit..I tell him but mera book kaise nikaloge..he asks me aap ko definitely chahiye kya and I almost scream at him saying mera nahi hai library ka hai..please nikaliye

by that time, two guys have managed to bring it to the edge by pushing it yet no one’s fingers are able to move it

people around me have lost interest and most of them have gone back to their work..chalo I looked like a circus clown only for about 20 minutes!!!

Then the peon says madam mein cubicle ka table thoda push karta hoon, aap nikaliye

when the lady who sits opposite to me says..no I will remove it this one will push it further inside (this one = R’s Mom)

I try to act offended and all that but obviously my reputation in the office is established
So both of them do the heroics and the book comes out..I start clapping only to realise that everyone else is staring at me again

Darn! Why me?

  12. Comfy says:

    I am so clumsy when it comes to dropping/banging over things that it is not even funny. The only saving grace is that we all have offices to ourselves so no one see me making a fool out of myself day in and day out.
