A dream job...The salary day

Today is the day everyone at Web Control International had been waiting for with bated breath. Because today is the salary day. They all are excited about dreaming to see Rs 10,000 as their salary on their hands and they all have made grand plans to booze and loose control in the evening. A normal day going on at office. Morning passed, no announcement for salary cheque. Afternoon passed, no announcement yet. At 3 p.m., Maninderjeet can't take it anymore and goes to the HR room to enquire about the cheque. We all are waiting for him to come back with the good news. He returns back in 5 minute saying that management has called a general meeting at 4 p.m. At 4:15 p.m., we get the news that salary payment is deferred for 2 days because of bank holiday tomorrow. Oh...god...Rishabh takes a deep breath and consoles himself by saying...don't worry...wait for another 2 days.

Kartik is the most disappointed guy today because he was planning to buy a nice dress for both himself and for Tina. Rishabh tells him to calm down and get the shopping done after 2 days when the salary will come.

Around 6 p.m., Alok comes to our house and very diplomatically asks about our salary thing. We just tell him that it is deferred for another 2 days. He seems very disappointed as well as he was hoping to get the rent for the new month. We assure him of giving the rent after 2 days.

To be continued...
