This is one of my most laughed about moments in 3 months of internship.
It was IPL 2013, and as we all know, everyone gets busy watching matches.
But unfortunately, my internship started right on the 2nd of May i.e Mid – IPL.
But that’s how life is.
One fine day, we associates had a lot of work load to be eased out.
That meant, full on working.
But also, the clock had indicated with a warning that it’s 4pm that means… IPL time.
We all guys were cricket buffs, and who would want to miss out a Chennai vs Mumbai match?
But the Manager had delegated some work for us to complete by the end of the day.
Sad as we were, we made a puppy dog face…
We then got to know through internal sources that the Head of the branch had given a task to the manager.
And instead of doing it himself, he passed it on to us!
So much for authority!
But not that day…
As soon as it was 4.30, we ( daredevils) sneaked outside, to the nearest resto-Bar, and were watching the match.
Then what happened next, was a shock, a blinder, everything.
As soon as a wicket fell, a guy sitting near the screen cheered “Mumbai,….Mumbai”.
The voice sounded familiar.
It was our manager.
We were surprised, shocked and everything else.
Here he is, enjoying the match, and there we were doing the work he was supposed to do.
He looked at us.
I’m sure he had a dumb faced expression which would even beat the best award for the dumbest expression given ever!
None of us said a word.
The match went on and after the first innings was over, he asked that we all return to work, as tasks had to be completed.
With a faint smile, we walked back.
So much for the love of cricket.
