"Punctuality is the art of guessing how late the other fellow is going to be "
I have admired this quote many a times . :-) :-) . Infact it is one of my fav .
Today i got a message saying
"Hey..Dulta meeting today.. At 8pm .. Sun Lab ..Every1 must come.. So be there.. !
Being confused about whether i am a dulta member or not, i finally decided to attend this meeting . Not because i decided to work dulta, neither i am afraid about chucked out of dulta , but i was jobless and anyway i will be in SUN lab working for my SOC. So i did not mind attending the meeting .
But things went really great . I never realised that the 8 PM is "dulta's 8 PM" . And just today i came to know that there is a timezone difference of 30 minutes between IST and Dulta's Time :) :)
I went to sun lab at around 7.45 (foolish me) and started coding for LDTP in the SUN systems. Yazhini,
Padmini and Deepak Kumar Jha came there on time (all three compsci's ) . Some 10 mins after that , Nitin (a prod guy ) came to me asking whether there was a dulta meeting there or not ? .
I was really really curious to know who sent that message. I really hoped that DK sent that message ( he was the only senior present there ) . But seems he did not send that message . Finally i asked yazhini and padmini not to waste their time and they went back to their hostel by 8.30 . DK also went to room saying that he has to finish his English report.
Finally "the man" who sent that message came exactly at 8.35 :) :) . I expected him to say a sorry to the members waiting there . But again i was surprised to see him to start directly as
"Ok everyone check http://dulta/info and i want it to be nitt.edu by tonight . Think we have to work tonight blah blah blah blah ...".
I also like this quote
If I have made an appointment with you, I owe you punctuality, I have no right to throw away your time, if I do my own.
I really wish these people learn this someday soon .
But yes , i learnt some new stuff from this strange experience .
1. Dulta is always waste of time.
2. Never ever make anyone wait for you.
