The wedding reception

The greatest place to socialize in a dreary office is the carom board table, table tennis, pantry and in our case the foosball. I met Arjun on my adventures at the foosball. By the way I am really bad at socializing in office. We became good friends and met over for tea. Arjun was super rich. The salary he earns is peanuts compared to the wealth amassed by his dad. Well there is no point in him earning his own bread. So he lazed around and managed not to get himself fired.

The favorite past time of office friends is mutual bitching of managers. But we had a problem here, Arjun’s manager was my old friend and Arjun’t know about that. And I didn’t reveal to Arjun the relationship between his manager and me. The simple reason being I love people bitching about the people I know rather than people I don’t.

So this exercise went on for long. Arjun revealed his bitter feelings about the manager and addressed him in the choicest of words. The worst part came when Arjun invited his colleagues for his posh wedding reception. I made my grand entrance along with his manager. A great surprise for him and that too on the eve of his wedding.

I hope you did not share with his manager his deep, dark secrets :). That would be sure to ruin his wedding.
