I received this email forwarded to me by one of my colleagues and to quite a few people in our field, mostly expats.

Mujibar was trying to get a job in India.

The Personnel Manager said, "Mujibar, you have passed all the tests, except one.

Unless you pass it you cannot qualify for this job."Mujibar said, "I am ready."

The manager said, "Make a sentence using the words Yellow, Pink and Green."

Mujibar thought for a few minutes and said, "Mister manager, I am ready."

The manager said, "Go ahead."

Mujibar said, "The telephone goes green, green, green, and I pink it up, and say, Yellow, this is Mujibar."Mujibar now works as a technician at a call center for computer problems.

No doubt you have spoken to him….

Well I was not in a humorous mood.... so I sent a reply to everyone on the list...

Mujibur, good joke! Now for the facts!!!

Good you have spoken to Mujibur and had some fun.

You know what was Mujibur's job? Trying to put some sense in the head of the guys who did not know how to operate a washing machine...(forget the computer... that is too much above their heads.)

Mujibur stated some problems he faced too.

People trying to operate a computer without the power being plugged, people who opened their home windows when he asked them to pop up a window.... (you would die laughing if I write all the stupid stuff he told me... that would be a greater joke... maybe the greatest joke)

He said he met some people with an attitude... people who thought they had the brains and thought they could operate a computer...just because they could speak Queen's English with an accent? or had the money.... Bullshit!

He said he needed enormous patience to put some intelligence into these heads...Guys appreciate his patience and be humble when you have to learn something from someone... you will atleast learn something


The guys who received the email did learn some facts that day.

I was reading Veda's site about call centre jokes and wished I had that info earlier. Good one.

Hey come on Smiley,
Thats just a joke. You can make jokes on everybody you can imagine. Lets see.....American President? Bush! Who can be a better object for a good laugh? A joke is a joke. As long as it doesn't have an underlying, eternal hatred, it is a good reason to laugh. Keep your posts coming. And thanks for visiting me.
