Pressure of performance

Overheard this conversation from the Boss’s cabin. My cubicle is next to him. My Boss is a 74 year old adorable Canadian-American, who takes good care of me. He says I am like a little girl and it is like having his grand daughter around. πŸ˜€
He hired a new Project Engineer for our R&D team, and he is an Indian. He is from my boss’s previous company and that is where I had interviewed first with ze boss.

My boss to the new Indian guy at work : β€œOh, you have met PB before, she is really good, blah blah blah…”

Indian guy : β€œ Oh, that is good to know”

Boss *Chuckling* : She is quite cheeky, has a great sense of humor. Makes everyone laugh all the time.”

Indian guy : *Smiling politely*

After a while,

Indian guy : β€œHey, how are you? Good to see you again!”

Me : β€œI am good! Congrats on the new job, and welcome aboard!”

My head : β€œTHINK OF A JOKE! THINK OF A JOKE! THINK OF A JOKE!”

    • Hahaha! I love FRIENDS! One of my fav moment is when Chandler comes home from Tulsa where he gets jealous of Monica’s some co-worker and tries to joke…Ross’s final laugh is priceless! Ani loves it too! See the link below:
