Mail sent by N M to all staff:

It's half past 8 in the office but the lights are still on...
PCs still running, coffee machines still buzzing...
And who's at work? Most of them ??? Take a closer look...

All or most specimens are ??
Something male species of the human race....

Look closer... again all or most of them are bachelors...

And why are they sitting late? Working hard? No way!!!
Any guesses???
Let's ask one of them...
Here's what he says... 'What's there 2 do after going home...Here we get to surf, AC, phone, food, coffee that is why I am working late...Importantly no bossssssss!!!!!!!!!!!'

This is the scene in most research centers and software companies and other off-shore offices.

Bachelors 'Passing-Time' during late hours in the office just bcoz they say they've nothing else to do...
Now what r the consequences...

'Working' (for the record only) late hours soon becomes part of the institute or company culture.

With bosses more than eager to provide support to those 'working' late in the form of taxi vouchers, food vouchers and of course good feedback, (oh, he's a hard worker.... goes home only to change..!!).
They aren't helping things too...

To hell with bosses who don't understand the difference between 'sitting' late and 'working' late!!!

Very soon, the boss start expecting all employees to put in extra working hours.

So, My dear Bachelors let me tell you, life changes when u get married and start having a family... office is no longer a priority, family is.... and
That's when the problem starts... b'coz u start having commitments at home too.

For your boss, the earlier 'hardworking' guy suddenly seems to become a 'early leaver' even if u leave an hour after regular time.... after doing the same amount of work.

People leaving on time after doing their tasks for the day are labelled as work-shirkers...

Girls who thankfully always (its changing nowadays... though) leave on time are labelled as 'not up to it'. All the while, the bachelors pat their own backs and carry on 'working' not realizing that they r spoiling the work culture at their own place and never realize that they would have to regret at one point of time.

So what's the moral of the story??

* Very clear, LEAVE ON TIME!!!
* Never put in extra time ' unless really needed '
* Don't stay back unnecessarily and spoil your company work culture which will in turn cause inconvenience to you and your colleagues..

There are hundred other things to do in the evening...

Learn music....

Learn a foreign language...

Try a sport... TT, cricket..........

Importantly,get a girl friend or boy friend, take him/her around town...

* And for heaven's sake, net cafe rates have dropped to an all-time low (plus, no fire-walls) and try cooking for a change.

Take a tip from the Smirnoff ad: *'Life's calling, where are you??'*

Please pass on this message to all those colleagues and please do it before leaving time, don't stay back till midnight to forward this!!!

Yes, I totally / stronly agree with this.
I am always punctual (comes at 9.15 for 9.30 office timings)
Leave at 6.00 exactly
So I manage my MBA assignment
then I go to sleeep on time to get up on time next morning
Yeah its very important.... I dont even carry office work to home.... evenings are for relaxation is what i feel...
I dont agree with your point, not every one who sits late in the office is only sitting because he/she doesnt have work.
Stop saying bachelors alone do it, does it all mean married men/women are going on time, todays world is competitive you need to be at your best always putting in extra efforts move to the next level.
When your are bachelor you are young you have to achieve lot things, have a lot of things to prove and have opportunities to learn.
Accepted few people misuse this time and use company property in wrong ways not every one is that way.
Stop posting general comments that too target one particular audience ( bachelors)
Not only bachelors but married ones also does the same, due to one reason or the other...
I agree that 98% of late sitters just want to pass (waste) their time...
Somewhere around 2% utilize their time sitting late in office, if we observe..
Instead evening time can be utilized by making it productive in many ways like gaining extra income, enhancing qualifications or sharpening / developing ones own creativity, in accord to the field of interest..
We just realize when we loose something.....
But one thing -
Clock makes sound tick-tick...
But understand, it is QUICK QUICK..
It says - 'Time is precious'
So, let us not waste our time, which cannot be gained back...
Let us just make a best use of it...

Excellent meesage to all late workers. I find that today there are as many female staff as well working much longer hours.
Parents find it to believe that you need to work late for so long on a regular basis!!! Well it is the culture being created and you are right - it is time to change it by stopping it unless necessary.
Dear Binita, I perfectly agree with you. We pretend to be busy and make lives of others miserable Lakshmi Omankuttan
