Yesterday I had to go for a teammate’s engagement. I had planned with other teammates and told them that I will be there at the same time as them. But as usual, I was the first to reach there and others didn’t turn up till it was almost an hour since I reached there! 😐 Imagine having to sit through the whole function all alone without knowing anybody there! Why is it me who always turns up first everywhere? 🙁
It was a small hall and I chose to sit in a corner since I knew nobody there. Since I couldn’t see what was happening on stage, I moved to another chair and sat. At that time, people started distributing flowers to everyone to throw it on the couple and bless them. When people started moving forward to throw the flowers, I went to the last row and sat lest some flowers got thrown on me (!). Within a few minutes, someone came and asked those of us sitting in that row to turn our chairs and sit facing the table that was there behind and have our dinner! Since I had to wait for others to come, I moved to another corner and sat. I felt so stupid moving from one chair to another and keep waiting. 😐 Before I knew it, everybody except the couple and their close relatives maybe, were having dinner and I was asked by many to go and have my dinner. Tired of waiting, I had my dinner and just as I was about to finish it, others turned up finally!
I hate days like these when I have to wait all alone for others. 😡 In times like these, my mobile phone is the one that comes to my rescue – I either SMS friends or call them up or type blog posts while waiting. Without my mobile, it would have been even worse yesterday!
