Hang on to time

Thought for the day:When people tell us something can't be done, they don't mean we can't do it. They actually mean THEY can't do it."

(Well,they selected some other caption as the best.LOL)

Now, it's time to talk about:::Time:
Did you ever think of keeping your watch/wall clock 10-15 minutes behind schedule, so that you could work in a relaxed manner?I bet you didn't. I bet most of us don't. My wrist watch is 10 minutes fast,my cell phone clock is also 10 minutes fast(on purpose,of course). The table clock at home is 15 minutes fast, the alarm clock equally fast. All because,even though the subconscious knows that the watch is fast, I still ensure that I am on time or before time. Sometimes,it gets so confusing,that I just don't know what the correct time really is! So,reach for the landline and check the time showing there...LOL.
Go on the street,and you will spot one out of five people staring at his watch and making the funniest of expressions of disgust. The maximum I see of this phenomenon is at our railway stations. The favourite topic is: 'the train's late today,again'. Or, 'Oh,wow-the train's on time for a change'. Then,there're the offices,especially in India,where the receptionist sits,red pen in hand,to put a red mark against all the employees who turn up 10 minutes late for work.

Isn't it high'time' that we gave up this obsession and allowed our lives to move as they should-without time-stress,without wanting to rush from one place to another 'on time'.
On to the end jokes:

Man : Doctor; I have come on a vacation for a month, so that I can get myself treated fully within this period.
Doctor: I think you should go to the Doctor opposite to my clinic, see that board.
Man: No, doctor, I have come to you only.
Doctor: But, gentleman I am a Veterinary Doctor. I am an animal specialist. I do not treat human beings.
Man: I know that doctor, very well, and that why I have come to you.
Doctor: I cannot treat you, because you speak like me, think like me, talk like me which means you are a human being, and not an animal.
Man: I know I am a human, but listen to my complaint first.
Doctor: OK. Tell me.
Man: I sleep vigilantly like a Dog thinking about my workload the whole night
I wake up in the morning like a Horse.
I go to work running like a Deer.
I work all the day like a Donkey.
I run around for 11 months like a Bull without any holyday.
I wag my Tail in front of my bosses.
I play with my children like a Monkey if I get the time.
I am like a Rabbit in front of my wife.
Doctor: Do you work in the Gulf?
Man: Yes.
Doctor: Instead of telling me this long history, you should have told me in the beginning that you are working in the Gulf. Come on man, no one can treat you better than me.
Circuit, bole toh yeh Ford kya hai?(what is Ford)
Bhai, gaadi hai.(Brother,it's a cart)
Toh phir, yeh Oxford kya hai?(Then,what is Oxford?)
Bole toh, simple hai bhai, Ox mane Bael, Ford mane gaadi. Oxford bole toh Baelgaadi.
(That's simple- Ox is bullock, Ford is cart, Oxford is bullock-cart)
Till next time,keep smiling.

The OXFORD joke is quite old. I remember hearing it the movie GANDHI. :-) But I am a regular reader of your end jokes :-). Keep up the good work.
