Laziness is the mother of all invention

Necessity is not always the sole reason for doing things in a simpler way. According to this mail I read, it said “Laziness is the mother of all invention” I will have to say, that I quite agree with the statement. It is my laziness that I keep a scale behind my chair so I don’t have to get up from my study table when I want to switch on the light or fan. There is no necessity here, just plain old laziness.

I am sure we don’t really need – need a washing machine. Clothes that are hand washed, turn out cleaner and better than machine washed. In earlier times, people would stay fit my doing house hold work. Now days, people use all modern gadgets that work on press of a few buttons here and there and then they go to the gym to stay fit… or at least have memberships to gyms they think of going to.

BOSS !!!

I was recently out with my cousin in a hotel and he addressed the waiter as chchc cchchc. I didn’t say anything the first time but I think the look of utter repulsion was very evident on my face. The waiter didn’t acknowledge so my cousin did so again.
I told him not to do so, and he obliged
He asked y and I said “Munna bhai nai dekhi hai kya?”
So he did something even more disgusting.
He addressed the waiter as boss. Isn’t calling boss degrading? Who started this custom? (vini, is there a word which means the custom is completely wrong, something like sati)
Anyway, coming back to BOSS, Its like laughing on the fellow. Probably he will never become so qualified that someone would call him boss
I find it annoying, why would someone like to address someone who serves him tea as “boss”. I have seen it in movies that some people call them captain too. That seems even more weird, probably because we are not used to it.
I hate it when ppl don’t call me by my name, and worst would be calling me by my surname, my receptionist calls me mam … Ugh!!!

I honestly did not see this coming. i have known big and respected people suffer from this but i never thought that something like this could happen to me. probably my ego is huge, but now i have to admit, i am suffering from a block.. i will have to come up with a prefix for that other than writer as i don’t think i am a writer yet.
so instead of calling it “the writers block”, i think i will have to call it something else. Any suggestions?

Anyway, some of you might not believe me, so here is something i thought of writing some days back…but my net wasn’t working. i had to get the thought out of my system, so i told my sis. she didn’t react much except an expression which clearly showed that she thought i was hopeless now.

I was obviously disturbed by this, so i shared it with a friend. She simply laughed.

so here is the thought which i had initially thought of writing (Finally)

Well, i bought a big umbrella… the long one which is in fashion now (no, am not a fashion victim) I simply wanted it.
Wanted it for reasons of my own.

anyway, after getting it, i wanted to walk with support… like old people do…
but somehow i couldn’t
i thought it was because i am young..so i don’t feel the need…hence am unable to take support.
i still kept trying.

CASE 1 – now if at this point u too are wondering y…i think i have got your attention and i haven’t turned as blocked as i had imagined

CASE 2 – if u are still reading because u expect something funny to come up…then you may go back now…as the reason is very silly and u have been reading with interest only because of my last posts…and after reading till the end…i may disappoint u.

CASE 3 – and if you stopped reading long time back, then….
well….
…..
hmmmm….
err…..

ummm
…..
…..
i think ..
that i am right….

ok..coming to the point
i can’t walk with my umbrella as old people because i walk fast.
so by the time i keep an umbrella on the ground, i am already passing that point…
so it doesn’t work

i think it is funny and silly. but most people i spoke to about this, didn’t.

now if u are case 1, and a regular reader, then i am sure u will comment back.

If u belong to case 2, i am sure u will agree and for sure reply

if u belong to case 3…and i get no comments… then well..I’ll get the message. and i will stop writing till i find something goooood enough.

hahahaha…if u are one of those who don’t comment after reading… and are tired of my taunts and pleads to get you to comment…
then this post is the baap of all pleads and taunts..

Pray tell me….why on Earth do you need the Umbrella’s support to walk??

Anyways try tapping the ground a little to the side rather than in front of you…It might work……another solution is to wait another 50 years!!
