I am a manager yay !!!

To say that my days are busy will be an understatement. Its work work and more work all the time. Here's a list of things which I have been doing in the past few days
  • Help configuring the email signature
  • Help getting printouts
  • Extract data and manipulating it since the extracted data doesn't show us in good light
  • Help configuring database connections
  • Create flowcharts looking at a printout of the same.
  • Help finding he right contacts for applications
  • Try to fix the telephone line

I performed these complex and highly skilled tasks on request from people who decide whether I was exceptional or mediocre at the end of the year. Welcome to the wonderful world of middle level management.

And people think I work for a leading IT company which is a forerunner in cutting edge technologies.....................

PS: My official position in my project is that of quintessential 'Ramu kaka' whom we have seen in numerous hindi movies, who has been in the household serving generations of masters and knows all the family secrets...only that I know where all the people used to sit, and who had which phone connection and which application was supported by whom , at which point in time and of course how to get the printer working when its jammed....

Basically.. its time to jump Companies...
The challenge in IT companies i guess is to never give a farewell party to the person who has joined after you ...

Hey, by the way... love the sound of middle management...looking forward to it
