The Eid Spirit Continues…

Its 10 AM, im sitting at work trying to figure out just why am i here in the first place?

Outside, its quieter than it is during a strike, and the building is mostly empty. People are still away, celebrating Eid, taking extended holidays, many offices just didnt open up. To top it all off, its a bank holiday as well, so thats even less a reason to goto work.

So who else is at work today thnking the same?

    Mansoor, my complete sympathies are with you, mate, and with all those who are stuck at the respective work-places.

    I’m also sitting in my office but taking care of year and quarter end acitivities like cleaning out my drawers , filling unwanted papers and updating my youtube videos , I have posted 4 new videos 2 covering Bull ki Qurbani ( one covers preprations and the other one covers the bloody part ) it’s in 2 pieces cause my camera memory ran out , one covers glimnpses of Bakra Eid and the last one covers camel ki qurbani including preprations of harnessing it , just search for schawlaf on youtube

    Yes Mansoor, the city is quiet and lots of offices are closed or nearly empty. But our office has 100% attendance :(

    I am at work, we have 100% attendance too; everyone else I know, is at home (exaggeration of course)and enjoying; Sniff, Sniff!!!

    But seriously, it’s good to be back!!! Hope all of you had an amazing Eid and a fantastic start to the New Year!

    Yes it was pretty lame that they didn’t announce today’s holiday. Kia faida, people are still at home[due to genuine reasons] rather for fun only. I would like to quit office ASAP.

    Not only offices even shops are stored. Even ‘Makai wala’ is absent today:/

    People are here in office because of Eid Millan early in the morning. They ate “mufta” stuff and now getting ready to leave for home by giving lame excuses to bosses ;)

    companies and corporates are in office and then not becuz banks are closed (well: branches are. were still in office yes i do interest based naukri. send me to hell).

    and since banks are clsoed. companies cant operate much. so they’re closed\
    its always like this on thefirst working day of jan. my fourth jan working and i know this by heart now.

    The Eid “Spirit” Continues..? I would not mention this unislamic word in the title. How about “the Eid Hangover Lingers on”?.

    Holidays and festivities are intoxicating after so muching w**ing and dining, are not they? Now get back to work as life isn’t all b**r and skittles.

    After your above comment the halo around your head must have grown two folds.

    Religion and state should be seperate, everything in life does not revolve around religion – rights of human beings and individual decision making is just as important. Or maybe i’m just reading the wrong kind of posts, its pathetic!

    you are a moron anon

    secular fundamentalism is also a religion, just like islam

    there is a level of flexibility in both, and you have picked the kaffir side, that’s your choice

    as for mansoor, you are an avowed alcoholic, why not get together with jayjay and get drunk instead of being in the office? he seems to be getting drunk all the time in europe anyways. you liberal elites break the law all the time anyways, who says you need to come to work?
