Two ladies were having a conversation in the office pantry(where we have aquaguard, coffee machines)
Lady 1 (L1) : I don’t like this location. Workload is too much
Lady 2(L2): Yeah!!! Park5 was much better.
L1: So many people are leaving the company, its making our load even more
L2: 3 people from our team left last week.
L1: But one of them was caught stealing, who asked him to steal.
L2: that’s true…
And they went on for a few minutes regarding their work load, then the house keeping ladies went on with the description.
L1: I am the only one who has Garbage cleaning work this week, I think I will ask for easy mop.
L2: I have hand pain since yesterday, I don’t want easy mop
L1: Ok.. then I will take easy mop, you take the garbage cleaning
L2: No, that’s very boring…
I could have heard further, but my bottle was full and it was time for me to go back to my desk.
I was just trying to compare their conversation with what we have
Person 1(P1): I don’t like this project. Workload is too much.
Person 2 (P2): Yeah!!! My previous project was much better.
P1: The attrition rate in the company is too much.
P2: So many from our team have quit in the last month.
P1: I think one of them was taken off due to disciplinary action taken against him
P1: I am just fed up of this maintenance project. I think I’ll ask for a project change
P2: I am bored of testing too. I think I’ll ask for prod support for a few days.
I couldn’t help but smile thinking about how similar our way of thinking and environments are even though the kind of work we do is totally different.
