Joys of being Jobless

We don’t know why this phase is on (something in the air I guess :P) but lot of our friends are currently unemployed.

Don’t start feeling sorry for them, these are the ones who left significantly well-paying jobs for one of these 2 reasons – they were either bored or wanted to just chill and take a break.

So this lot which is NOT suffering a 10 -7 work torture during the weekdays makes it a point to tell everyone how relaxed their life is and most of them have still not run out of monies so we can’t find satisfaction in the fact that atleast we have a monthly income.

I recently fell off the chair laughing when I got a random 3.00PM message on a Wednesday from one of our most favorite jobless friend saying that he got taken to the Matheran Police Station!
Reason: He was caught speeding on a horse J
Well he got reprimanded and managed to get his horse back, but not before he proudly clicked a picture of himself at the police station. He is right now on a horseback vacation is Jordon and I hope he manages to stay away from the Arab police there.

Kapadia and the Horse from Jordon

Then there is another friend whose mother is finding immense joy in her current unemployed state
Reason: She will now have more time (& lesser excuses) to meet eligible boys from matrimonial sites J
Unfortunately none of the arranged marriage meetings are going well but now she has enough fodder to entertain us for a while.

So we have been feeling significantly envious of this lot and wanted everyone else also to feel bad about being employed and hence got Rajvi Merchant (who gave up a perfectly good job which hardly made her work as she was bored) to describe her Monday ( non Monday Blues L ) to us…here’s her take on being jobless on a Monday:

Woke up to the usual 7.30 alarm...

Cribbed and sulked for 5 minutes when I realised I do not have to get up and go anywhere... Alas a Monday when I had nowhere to run and reach... I had quit and I was jobless.. I now have the privilege of being jobless.

I continued lazing in the bed and stretched around to pull out my kindle... Flicked it on and started reading where I had left...

Made mental notes of things to do (Still haven’t stepped out of bed).

My Monday TO DO looked like this:

1. Go to the library, get books exchanged
2. Buffer and watch new episodes of sitcoms: Preferable Castle and Suits (ooh aah over Gabriel Macht and Nathan Fillion)
3. Explore new coffee shops (A genuine reason to step out of house)
4. Go to dad's office and pretend to work (So that no one accuses me of being a Sloth)
5. Find someone to ‘timepass’ with in the evening (My 2 year old nephew with no personal life yet is usually available, if no one else is)

Ofcourse in the middle of it all I will connect with my friends who are still working and gloat about all the upcoming exciting holiday plans I am making.

Phew... Looks like too much work and too little time.
Not sure till when the good times will last but till then…

Snooze time...
