This post has been published by me as a part of the Blog-a-Ton 41; the forty-first edition of the online marathon of Bloggers; where we decide and we write. To be part of the next edition, visit and start following Blog-a-Ton. The theme for the month is "SWEET AND SOUR"
Dean: “You missed yet another class today!” started the dean without any obligatory niceties.Mark: “I am sorry sir that this happened today but it was not a fault of mine. First my alarm clock didn’t work and then the missed bus and irate vultures… I mean the committee. I do sincerely apologize and promise that this wouldn’t happen in future.”D: “Have you graded the papers that I gave you?”M: “Umm… no sir but I was planning to do them today after going back.”D: “So let me promise that there would not be a next time as from today, for the next six months, I am putting you on probation. If your performance does not improve in the next six months, we have to let you go. Please hand me the graded papers before the end of day today”
Sarah: “Where are you?” said an icy cold voice from the other end.Mark: “Got a bit occupied in course planning. You wouldn’t believe the day I had, if I tell you.”S: “Worse than standing in a queue outside a theater, dressed in white dress and waiting for someone who had been promising to watch the movie for over a month now?”M: “Umm… different worse?” ventured Mark.S: “Hmm… We need to talk about us and what you need to do if you want ‘US’ to work out!” And she cut off the phone.
