The coffee was fantastic,
But I couldnt enjoy it.
The 53 year old looked eagerly, at me
Would he get atleast this year
Rs.100 would be wonderful.
I pretended to be busy with the coffee
Then looked him in the eye,
And shook my head..
Thinking,sometimes its better to be dead.
He tried his best to hide his disappointment and be cheerful.
And I walked back to my seat, woeful.
Hey we arent in Software or BPO
And we have 14 branches all over India.
And if we increase his salary
what about the other office boys?
That would be a major policy decision,
And since he is not in sales,
we can afford to lose him.
And even though he works hard,
At this age, it would be tough for him,
to find a new job.
Yet I had pleaded with my Boss
who had pleaded with her Boss, our Branch Manager
And who had made this extraordinary request
To the Vice Presidents, in their annual meet.
Surely we should understand,
the company is not doing well
When for the annual meet, instead of France
The executives settle for, Greece..
