“yaar, he’s a shit guy” – totally

24Jan07

said a waiter long ago when asked why the union head was making such a fuss about the quantity of meat in his biryani. the words, while poetic, do not fully reflect the emotion, the meaning, the depth of feeling behind them. they had to be heard. its the tone that conveys meaning, not the language. which is why you understood exactly what the guy with the pushcart meant when you splashed him with puddlewater even though all he said was laka damadam kaura pushta!!! – which let me remind you makes as much sense to you as, let’s say, aamir sohail’s commentary.

and it was in the same tone that the waiter employed that eventful day that little ms. prettyfeet said, somewhat less artfully, “abbas, he’s a pathetic person!” she was referring to el boss of course.

she has my sympathies. he is indeed pathetic. he redefines pathetic. indeed he is as pathetic as the word pathetic in its most intense form can imply. he is to pathetic as sheikh rasheed ahmed is to nuts. he is, in fact, a shit guy.

fortunately, however, the shit guy (man i love this term. it’s so bloody expressive) is under a deluded state of mind that has led him to believe that i am his – for want of better english words – yawar o hamdard. and that works out just fine for me. it keeps him out of my work.

in a totally unrelated aside, i’m having totally inappropriate discussions with totally awesome people. totally kickass, man. that is so totally awesome. i might just have something so totally going here. fingers (totally) crossed.
