  4. When that bloody boss dies, his son might sent a photograph to his mail inbox instead of his presence.

    Good one!!

  5. He WAS pathetic..

    Somebody lost his laptop one day.
    He says, "A very unfortunate incident."

    Someone meets with an accident.
    He says,"That was so unfortunate."

  6. Mathayi.. Things like this happen in all offices.
    For me that was the first time. This happened sometime back.

  7. Hehe.. That's Corporate life :-P
    Beware when your company gifts you a laptop.
