Re: office funnies

Years ago I worked at this place on the second level, I got on the elevator as I was carrying some Krispy Kreme donuts for the team. A guy got on the elevator, and says to me I'm going to follow you to get one of these donuts.

He noticed the elevator is way too slow for going up one level so he goes "Man, did they buy this as a used elevator?". I replied, "I didn't know they even have used elevators."

We both burst out laughing.. He goes "but sure seems like one".

You need to have worked or interacted with "Lala companies" to visualize this.

One could take the elevator car, motor, weights or whatever is working from a condemned building and use in a new one. Now, i have not seen an elevator being reused, but a couple of examples.

1. Tata Steel put a full page ad about its "State of the art Blast Furnace G" going operational in 90s. I came to know later on, it was actually a decommissioned blast furnace picked up from Brazil.

2. Jindals were reputed to buy only second hand stuff. Long time back , my Dalal ex employer was trying to sell them a stainless steel mill. After long scouring, when they could not find any second hand stuff, Jindals reluctantly agreed to go for a new one. The probable sub contractors were surprised to hear when we mentioned 'it is for Jindal' saying "Are they really going for First hand stuff". Ultimately the deal never went through, after they got a bargain where they were the second highest bidder and the highest bidder backed off. OP Jindal was reputed to go searching for motors in Ship building yards.

Such things vastly reduce the initial cost.

Re: office funnies

This happened when I worked in a Dell's call support center.

An American customer phoned up angry over nude pictures of men he found on a refurbished (second hand) computer bought by him from Dell.

We looked through his service records and found his son already had us assist him (the son) in formatting and reinstalling windows on the computer. This was over a decade ago and at that time, there was only the C: drive on the hard disk without any other partitions.

The son was sixteen years old or so. We know this because the customer mentioned it to us.

So indirectly through us, the customer learnt his son was gay.

Re: office funnies

Not terribly funny but slightly amusing -
One Lady in the van pool "I am going to my Brother's wedding in Kabul"

Me - What? You mean Kabul in Afghanistan??

The Lady : Nooo. It is Cabl in Mexico.

Re: office funnies

One from ages back. a summer trainee in the real coolie co was confused on what to do after engineering.

Finally he gets a clear direction and here is his statement.

"I will go for IAS. God wants me to do that, else he would not have made me a Bihari"

Re: office funnies

Few years ago we were discussing black friday deals on some office stationary deals.. I mentioned how I saw some interesting deals in Meijer (I said maa-yer) .. one desi guy goes I saw that deal too but it was in a store called major ..

We all looked at each other and said whatever.. to this day we will crack up on Meijer v/s Major

Re: office funnies

Another similar one on store names.. although not office stuff.

I called a friend's cell phone to say I was running a bit late.. I was invited to their home for dinner that day

His dad, who was visiting from India, answered the phone.. and said "beta we are outside doing grocery shopping in K-Roger.. I will tell Rahul (his son, my friend)"

I said okay and hung up.. but wondered what store is K-Roger.. and then it struck me.

P.S. if you didn't get it I'm not explaining..

Oh ya, even we have a lot of jokes on "j". A lot of them actually pronounce J as in jam when saying Jalapenos or Mojitos or even Alejandra.
