Who Me?

A fellow blogger, Ankur Mithal has nominated me for the “Versatile Blogger Award, and I am truly humbled.”

A blogger has many contacts who are also bloggers. I can’t call them my friends because I have never met them nor associated with them in any way. They are peers in a group of people who love to speak their mind and share thoughts. Yet, after sharing intimate thoughts, I feel that some of these bloggers are my friends. I feel they have connected with me in a way that some of my daily associates have never done. We pour our souls to┬áthe blogosphere and sometimes connect with another who speaks to us, and we listen, we comment, we share feelings.

I began reading Ankur’s blog pieces on dark office humor because the subject was near and dear to my heart, office politics, office antics, and office stupidity in the form of manager bullshit. You see, I appreciate these things because I played the part of middle manager for over thirty years, and his writing struck very close to my heart. I was caught in the middle between the upper echelon of the owner’s first tier, and the worker bees who follow the directives. I had to give the sometimes ridiculous reasons for doing what we ask them to do. Ankur nails office life with observations like a pro. He knows the inside of a business office like one who has lived it for many years. When I began reading his stuff, I thought “this guy is another Dilbert.” He writes with humor and a pinch of sarcasm added, well maybe a huge dose of sarcasm. Either way you see it, the result is very often hilarious.

Thank you Ankur for the nomination and I hope we become fast friends as well as fellow bloggers.
