Swear to Attract

We've Poured your Beer
And we've had the camels shampooed
We've saved a spot on the beach
And we've got the sharks out of the pool
We've got the 'roos out of the green
And Bill's coming down to open the front gate
Your Taxi's waiting
And dinner's about to be served
We've turned on the lights
And we've been rehearsing for 40000 years
So Where the Bloody hell are you ?

This is the new ad campaign by Australian Tourism to attract tourists to India. You can watch the video on Though it may be a bit bold to use the word Bloody in a public ad campaign and that too comissioned by Government, but I guess it shows the upfront plain speaking nature of the Aussies. What do you say??

Time : Evening 5:30
Place : MNC IT Company in the IT Hub of India

People are in mood to wind up for the day. Some having their last Tea/Coffee of the day, some sending last mails. Those who have to stay late are cursing.

Fire Alarm Starts Beeping!!
Well all of us have been trained that when the alarm goes off, we should drop everything and head towards the emergency exit.
Coffee seems to be more important, sending mail seems to be more critical. A few who started towards the emergency exit, stop midway as they see that they are just a few handful and no one else seems to be bothered.

More than a minute has passed. There are floor managers for every floor who are supposed to be organizing evacuations in times of emergencies. One is seen talking on the cell, others are not to be seen. There is nervous chatter among people. This has been the longest the Alarm has beeped falsely. Could there be a real fire in the building this time?

The Alarm has stopped now, but the indicators are still blinking. A voice on the public address system announces "There has been a small fire in the Server Room. Everybody is asked to please continue working."

There is laughter, jokes being cracked, more rush at the Pantry!!
