Yesterday I was supposed to meet an old friend at 7 pm. She works in one of the larger IT firms and from 7 o clock onwards every 10 minutes she calls saying she’s suddenly stuck up with more work and she’ll be there “in another 10 minutes”. finally turned up at 8:30!
have seen my cousin who is with an even huger s/w company struggle the same way. leaves home at 7 am and returns at 11 pm. the hosur road traffic doesn’t help. and i’m not sure if the compensation package can be called a “compensation package”.
no way i’m marrying a software engineer 😀 . add to that my earlier resolution i won’t marry a BPO chick and that rules out probably a really large portion of the “target whatever” when i decide to hit “the market”!
