Another set of Rat racers spotted!!!

Everytime I see something that freaks me out, im like “no this cant be true”…”a grown a$$ man/woman cannot do this”…but apparently ive sent much world yet..

So what happened this time…Another classic example of rat race, another example of people following other people blindly..

This happened to me while I was waiting for a friend outside his MBA institute…2 gurls came out of the institute..with GMAT books in their hands, talking about what they have been doing for a good GMAT score. Me and my friend were just standing near the lift..minding our own business…The lift at that moment was on ground floor and we had to go down to ground floor from 4th floor….so what do you do when you wait near a just start reading signs near the lifts, the autographs, the love letters…and that’s what we were doing…one of the sign near the lift read ‘Only 4 persons at a time’… I thought to myself…”good thing man… I don’t wanna climb down”…so after some 2-3 minutes the lift came..and as soon as we(me and my friend) entered, the girls flipped out..and next thing I hear is “lets go by stairs”…

I was flabbergasted..i was like…WHAT??? Wat did we do?? Wat did I say to you??? and then it struck me....a girl who isnt comfortable going in a lift with 2 can she even think of writing GMAT and eventually running a company or presenting something in room full of strangers…… im gonna get judgemental here but its gonna take more than bookish prepration for them to get through…

All the best chicas!

Thank you God!

When you are sick and have a terrifying near death experience, you think about everything...that one moment makes you sit up and think about things you have done, things you haven't done...people you have met, people you would like to meet before you leave...and of course how things could have been 'normal' had you taken the conventional way out. 

Ironic part of this is that once the moment is gone, once you know that you r gonna just thank god for being able to get out of that situation and then carry on with your normal routine. The things you've been wanting to do, people you've been wanting to see..everything you said to yourself takes a back seat..and you continue to run the rat race..

I don't want to be in the situation i was in last night but i certainly wont mind god reminding me the importance of being a good human being and to keep materialistic things at a place where they are supposed to stay.
