Occupational Errors!!

This was taken from the mail that I got from Sachin. Many stuff from here are related to my life in one or the other way, and I'am sure many of you reading will feel the same. Please avoid reading it if you have got a mail from the same "Subject line".

  1. This weekend I am looking for a get away of about 200-300 KM car drive. Any idea, what are the places I can visit around Hyderabad? Also, please do provide me with the path.
  2. "Also, please do provide me with the path". Side effects of being in the IT field. 'Route' becomes path .!
  3. Yeah.. "provide me with the Path" , actually couldn't recollect that the word should be route till u mentioned it…. Certainly occupational errors….
  4. The other day I was hearing one guy talking of a "Standalone" house.. when he was actually intending a independent house… Poor broker should have tuff time trying to find a " Alone house standing in a huge empty area… ".Don't know what interpretations the guy must have made.
  5. Few years back my shogun engine stopped on Bangalore MG Road as the petrol came to reserve. I told my friend I need to restart my bike!
  6. Once I went to have juice at the local juice vendor and asked him whether he had a plain 'version' of nimbu pani.
  7. One late night when I went home after work, I was trying to flash my id card to open the lock and only after few secs, I realised what i'm trying to do ;-)
  8. Don't you guys ever wonder for you mobile phones not having Cntrl+C/Cntrl+V OR Cntrl+Alt+Del facilities???
  9. Once when I was searching for a house, When the owner asked my name, my reply was "Sudheer underscore some" (My id is Sudheer_some).
  10. Some times I dial 0 to call while using land line at home!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  11. I go to some place to wash my hands… I just show my hands up and wait for the water to wash it…. :P forgetting I need to turn something on…
  12. When I went to a movie theatre from office directly.. I showed the guy at the entrance my ID card and walked in… he had to call me back asking the ticket…
  13. And how can we forget the "Ctrl + Enter" effect while shooting mails from home using yahoo/gmail.
  14. Few of my friends and myself decided to go out for dinner. The place wasn't fixed yet. I said we shall decide it "run time".
  15. And I – after a forty hour marathon in Bhubaneshwar with Powerbuilder, decided to take a break and went to a movie. In the middle of the movie, when I wanted to check the time, I kept repeatedly glancing at the bottom right corner of the silver screen!
  16. Me getting a thought of doing an Alt+Tab while switching from a news channel to the DVD while watching TV.

The best experience I had was when I called home and told mom, I want the certain work done by EOD. Poor amma was wondering what EOD is :-)
