Before I begin my babble, here is something important for you to know-
Dictionary.com defines ‘weasel’ as:
weasel(n): a cunning, sneaky person.
weasel(v): to evade an obligation, duty, or the like; renege (often fol. by out): That’s one invitation I’d like to weasel out of.
If you had ever been employed & worked with your eyes/ears open, you must have realized this- The hardworking people do not smile! For some unknown reason, I realized that in my office, people think that I’ve no work 😯 ! I analyzed the issue & found out something really amusing! I’ll enlighten you about it in the following lines-
I do equal amount of work as any other hardworking/sincere/mature individual in office. There is one exception though. I keep on smiling & I can do serious amount of work without actually ‘appearing’ serious(expressionless/indifferent). I also observed that I take less time to do the same amount of work than most of the other colleagues.
I also realized that people are so gullible!
That’s why I devised my own weasel techniques-
-Weasel Headphone- I bought a nice iBall Headphone for myself. All I’ve to do is plug my headphone pins into my computer and listen to the songs all day, while doing the regular work. This allows me to sit in front of computer without getting bored, do the equal amount of work as I did before, yet appear ‘oh-he-is-so-busy’ to everyone else 🙂
-Shabby Look- On Monday, I went to the office without shaving. I managed a pale look on my face & everybody thought I had been working hard since the previous week.
-‘The Dumb’ Technique- I no longer greet anyone. This allows me to convince people that I’m thinking about my work all the time. People are so gullible, you see.
-Look @ The Floor- I learnt this technique by observing my colleague. If anyone comes to greet you while you are enjoying a cup of coffee, look @ the floor & walk away. This one is really effective, believe me.
-Lots of Work Burp- If someone still catches me & starts talking, I simply walk away while saying “I’ve lot of work, I’ll get back to you later”. 🙂
This is how simple it is. Sure shot way of impressing your colleagues. You must use these techniques because the people around you are too ‘mature’ to understand your multi-tasking abilities. God bless them.
There are more weasel techniques. But I’ll talk about them some other time. I don’t have time & I’ve lot of work 😉 .
