whats in a name?- Part II

To read Part I, click here

  • I get a call from the reception, informing me that i had a visitor...so i go down four floors to the reception, all the while pondering...what happened??who could it be??? and thinking of the wort case scenarios and fearing it shouldn't be true!!! ...also the optimist in me expecting a sweet surprise...... but what do i see when i reach the reception?? It is the visitor for another person who has the same name as me.....Aaaaaarrrgh!!
  • I get a mail asking me to preside over a meeting, as i am in an elation that a fresher like me gets to do that...wow!!!!...my hopes come crashing down , when i go through the enire mail, only to figure that the actual recipient had the same first name as me.....Aaaarrrgh!!!
  • "Gayathri....which Gayathri???" some one would ask....."oh! not her...the other one, the intelligent one!!!!"-would be the reply......Aaaarrrgh!!!
