“"Training"”
A donut We people are recruited as engineers and we undergo a lot of training our company invest immensely in training.
The managerial trainings we get are all from very reoputed fecilitating organizations or people.

So, in one such training the trainer asked have you ever thanked your parents, have you ever callled your mother to say mumma I love you i wanna thank you for whatever you did for me.


on this two people of our trainees batch started crying.

I was not able to relate the traininers word with what was in my mind and why people were crying..

Ok they became emotional but can we have a second thought that we dont require to do certain things a hug to my mother tells her how much i love her and its my way of doing.... LINK

“World's laziest job”
A donut It's an interesting change of pace when your friend comes into your busy shoe department at 7:30pm to complain about her lazy job.

She works as a secretary at a car dealership. Her main job is to ask other employees or the boss to come to the desk for some reason (usually a phone call). However, her boss tends to sleep in a room upstairs, and turns off the speaker, so to reach him she must call his cell phone. Except to combat this he occasionally turns off his cell phone, too.

Her coworkers aren't much different. She estimates that only about 10% of the time do they actually come when she calls them. Not because they're too busy, but just because they can't be bothered. LINK
