My First Job....My First Remuneration...[ Updated and Completed Atlast ] :-)

Well, You will be thinking what I am going to blurt.....As the heading says "My First Job and My First Remuneration"..the word remuneration is used here with a good instinct...Its better to say Remuneration than saying Salary...coz.....Read On.....cheerz...

This is a real chronicle that happened during my first year law graduation..During this time I was dwelling with my friends in a rented house in Thiruvanathapuram.We had a Porsche life there,say a real bachelors life, I was really enjoying coz that was my first time experience away from my den..'here no lions to scold the cub"..he he..joking yar....After a month I got bored of that life..coz I always loved changes what ever it be...I thought of doing something different from others....I was in search for my questions and answers....yeah...at last i got the question.....'Why Can't I earn some money""Why should I ask My parents for money...I am now grown up "...??....I had classes only upto 1 pm...the rest of the time i used to rove through the streets just watching the busy city....In fact every one was having a busy life....except me.....Now the next question was made...'Who will employ me ?....First of all I was a small guy that time...a guy only in his seventeens.....the next obstacle was that I was a Law Student.....but I didn't gave up...I searched and Searched...atlast I came to know that ,there is a Job agency who is recrutting students for part time jobs.....I was very excited when I saw this in a poster during my wandering....I went to that firm that day itself....and enquired....It was a small office in a building with 2-3 employees.They told me that First I have to register using 250 bucks..I agreed to register and gave my bio data for the purpose...I was asked to sign some documents...they told me to sign fast...but I took my own time...coz I didn't wanted to get cheated..I read the whole document...so many conditions were there.....One of the main condition was that I should give half of my salary whatever it be to the placement agency in advance...then only they will give me the appointment letter...They asked me to come the nxt friday itself....I killed my days for that friday....



Finally Friday after my class in the afternoon...I went there...they told that they can give me a job in computer firm as a DTP operator which fetches me 2000 bucks per month...I was much excited...I can't express my happiness I had that time here...cozz............I felt that I conquered the whole world coz I am going to earn and live...."Self Made'...I dreamed and started planning things..."What all things shall I do with that money"...but after some minutes I realized that 2000 bucks if I being self made is nothing.....I just planned it to spend out just to become freaky,..like 2 buy some new clothes,shoes and to live like those guys who showed their power with money by making changes every now and then.....Or "Why shouldn't I save it and use for buying a bike in Tvm ??...Several plans flashed through my mind.....But the next question flashed like a quick lightning...I suddenly got out of my thoughts...'From where shall i get 1000 bucks for paying the advance to the placement agency..Can't speak this out at home...coz "achan" won't allow...thatz 4 sure....




Finally I decided to ask "amma"...I just told the matter to her....somehow managed to get the money from her..."U know boys are more attached to Mother"....I also begged her not to tell this to achan...amma somehow agreed and gave me a promise that she will not tell this to achan..but upon the condition that the day I am getting worse in my studies she will tell achan....I agreed...I was sure that I can keep my studies going whatever happens..."In fact I have proved that earlier"....last minute studies with some dedication often works for me....the next monday after coming back from home...I went to the placement agency ...gave the the money and receieved the appointement letter........I had my job in a computer centre near medical college...I reached there and found the shop...It was a small shop which had almost all the facilities....5 computers,one telephone booth, a xerox machine.Spiral binding was also done there....I saw a short man standing in front of the shop..Atlast I came to the Conclusion that he is the owner....and gave the letter to him.....there was no change of any expression in his face.....he asked my details and asked whether I know to do DTP....I told I knew everything...In fact I didn't know anything about Page maker......


I knew Ms Word..that too to type..he he....He gave me a document to type and set a time limit just to check my professional ability...In fact I had a very gud typing speed...so I finished it within Minutes...He was satisfied and appointed me....In fact there were some ladies working there....they were "Pulis" in DTP...I wanted to study something from them hiding the fact that I didn't knew anything.....some how I managed to clear some of my doubts.....Now the time was 4:30 and it was my time to get into the "ring"...the ladies went away by 5.....I was all alone....I got struck there.....After an hour of boring work I found that there is net connected to every system....I was excited....muhaaahhaaaa...... :) ....but my happiness didnt last for long......


A society lady came with a work...In fact that was my first work.....she had to type some question papers....I wondered...I can type...but how will I set the questions in order...?? .....My mind told me to do an experiment....I took a risk...I started typing without arranging....she asked me what I was doing..I told that I will arrange it last...she agreed and somehow I managed to finish typing by 2 hours....In fact there were 20 pages...I guess...physics,chemistry,maths.....hmmm there was a lot.....the time was 9 when I finished typing...now the arranging part...some how i managed to arrange it in half an hour... 9:30 now....I tried to give a print...but alllaaaassss....the damn printer was not connectd...I connected it and tried again...damn.,..some prblm again.....U can guess my condition that time...In fire....the owner was staring at me....


"He must have thought what the hell is this idiot doing".....In fact I was thinking.........[Censored] he he.....some how I managed to take 2 pages....the printer got stuck again....but this time accidently...I closed the "word document" where the whole thing was done .......In fact I didn't knew that it is to be saved...that stuff was not saved....huh.....U know what happened..??....I lost the whole thing....by this time the society lady was saying...I am too late I am too late..I need to go...will you plz do it faster....bla bla bla "....I was in a state of "benumb"...I didn't knew what to do....f*****......[CENSORED AGAIN].....


Atlast I had to relieve the truth that everything was lost.....I expected some obscenity from her...but she was too descent....she with a smile told that its ok.....but I could see her choler on the other side of her face....the time was 10:15 now...the only thing I could do was to give a promise....I promised ..."aunty..I'll complete it tonight itself....dont worry I can fork out the whole matter printed in ur home tonight itself"...she gave me her address and phone number....The Owner was petulant.....He but with his false smile gave me the keys and told me to close when i finishes it and to give the keys to the security...I was Peckish by this time..but I agreed...I started my work again...some how I finished it by 12:30 mid night...much dedicated..right..???...I took print outs..saved it...huh....no more imbecility again.....




I closed the shop and gave the keys to the security....Got out of the shopping complex....I couldn't get a bus....In fact the lady dwelled in pattom.....3-4 km away from medical college.....some how I managed to get an Auto..went there...found the house.....but no one was there...I could hear the sound of fan inside...I tried the phone but no one attended.....I called and called but no one replied to my calls....complete mystery....I just put that stuff in the letter box and wrote an annotation.....and left the place....I asked the auto chettan to drop me in my room....I had to pay arounf 60 bugs 4 travelling coz it was night tariff....First day itself complete loses........but I was not ready 2 give up....


I reached my room....my friends were waiting 4 me.....they were 4 of them....sanakan,vishnu,gopan chettan and Rajan annan...sanakan was working in a firm near by...In fact he was formerly a law student..had to give up studies due to some problems with the University.....Vishnu was my senior ,Gopan chettan was a producer in doordarshan and Rajan chettan himself played the role of a security of that house and he was a gardener too....they were having some hot discussions......"politics"....they asked why i was late...I told the whole story....they made fun of me.and gave me my food [My gud friendz didnt forget me..they kept some food 4 me]....but I was to tired...I just fell into bed.......into the deepness of a gud sleep...........




Days went and went..My job became worse and worse...everyday the owner used to scold me...I couldn't even go to my home on sundays and saturdays...I felt very exhausted...but some how i pretended before my mind that I am strong..Most of the days in the night I had to walk around 5 km to reach my den...because after 10...its difficult to get a bus from medical college.....its also difficult to get food.....In fact i was making useless burdens...days went and went.....one day the shop owner told me that he wants some one else to help me...I promised to give a person for that...



I told this to my room mates...one of my room mate Vishnu agreed to this....he was my senior..the nxt day he also came with me for the job...In fact he also didn't knew anything about the job concerned..but he told that to the owner at the first instance itself....Finally he was assigned the job of taking Xerox.....now another comic scene.... :) ...he was having an affair...so all the time he was in phone..even when sleeping ......here also he was talking even when doing his job......the shop owner was looking at him very rudely all the time.....days went and went...my work became hectic and hectic..but some how i managed....but atlast as time went i got bored and i started chatting in between my work...the owner warned me.....but i never minded him....one fine day..net was dis connected..i enquired..the ladies told that....since i was using net...they got huge bills and so the owner cut the net.....


I was wondering.....because how can this happen in a cafe.??.....they uses an unlimited connection.....from that instance i started doubting the ladies there....I understood that they are doing some dirty spy work over there......Hectic days went very very slowly like a snail....atlast 25 days have finished....both of us planned to quit.....we said that to the owner.....some how he managed to get a new worker by that time.....In fact that man was such a great friend for us...he was a violinist.....he was also an experienced person in DTP.....



So we planned to quit by the last date of that month.....atlast the final day came....I planned many things with that 2000 bucks....both of us failed to buy it on the specified date due to some reasons....so we asked for another appointement so that we could collect our salary.....the shop owner told us to collect the cash from his security......after a week we went to collect the salary.........the shop owner was not there.....we went to the shop......the spy bitches were on their work....we saw the security....he with a thrawt....took his purse and asked us..."How much You Expect".??...I was astonished....I said 2000 bucks..what else..??.....He smiled....and took 500 bucks and gave it to me...and another 250 bucks to my friend......


We were shocked...we thought that man is trying to make us fools for fun...A month of hectic work and only this much....???....I couldn't even dream of it....In fact more than 3000 bucks were spent that month due to that job....I told him to give the remaining cash...but after some time we understood that its a fact that the f**** gave that security only that much....we ran to the shop to see that bastard...In fact we were much annoyed......the ladies told that he went out..we called at his mobile..but he didn't attend.....



We waited till evening....by evening he came......we asked the cash.....we spoke rudely....we were that angry..but he was not willing to give the cash....we shouted at him....and told him..."beware we are law students..."...but he didn't mind us....we planned of teaching him a lesson....I went to the "ganapathi temple "near by....any way its my first salary...right...?? ....we planned to make a party that night....though we were much irritated....but allas......later only that thing came to my mind..that was the first day of the month....all bars and wine shopes are closed...no way of getting alcohol...some how i was much depressed......



I wanted to get inside some alcohol....we went to a bar in baker junction asked the security..."anna...ore full kittan valla vakupum undaa..cash ore prashnam alla..."but he failed to satisfy us...he told that there is a toddy shop near by and toddy will be available..we went there...We entered inside...lotz of drunk people there.....I knew that gud toddy is not available there...but what to do.......no other way....In fact my friend was much descent....he don' drink......he started having some food...from "kallu shaape"....I asked for a litre of toddy...toddy is given in clay pots in toddy bars....I took my time....drank it all.....nxt ordered for a glass....mmm....i was intoxicated by this time...bought two bottles for the people in my room....and got out of the toddy shop....."Gud mood"...now i felt like giving a slap to the bloddy bastard....lighted a cigarete and both of us started walking to our room....it was 7'o clock....my legs measured the road..he he.....Stopped at the next shop...bought some cigarettes again....that time a bit expensive cigarette...'555".....i was singing ....atlast my friend managed to take me to our room...every one were waiting for us......




They came towards us with eagerness and asked.."Did You get The Remaining Salary "...My friend answered there questions...In fact I was completely Intoxicated...I gave those bottles of toddy to them....they made fun of us...but I didn't bother any thing....I had a quite gud sleep.....The nxt fine day I decided to get the remaining at any cost......I decided to teach a lesson that idiot....I knew that I won't get the money through proper channel....This time my wicked mind came up with an idea...I decided to get it any cost..........

I called one of my friend who was a free land journalist and told the matter.He promised me to get it for me.....In fact my co-worker was satisfied with what he got......


The next fine day me and the Journalist went to the shop again.....The owner sawing us snubbed away..In fact his snub was clearly intentional.....We asked the women workers about his escape from us...they didn''t tell any thing...Instead they were making fun of us...I was much disgusted...Suddenly my journalist went prankish...he started playing his role...He showed his identity card to them and told them he is a journalist .He then asked "Is the medical college near this ??" Only women staff is here right ??" In fact some places near medical college were famous for women trafficking and the police have raided it...In fact that was a incongrous joke with a polite conversation....



Then we went to the shop nearby..In fact it was also a xerox shop run by the sibling of my wicked boss....we told that we are going to give a petition in the police station and gave a copy of it to him...In fact he was scared reading that.....Suddenly for God's sake the Sub Inspector of the nearest Police station came by and we told the matter to him....He told to write a postulation and bring it to the police station so that he will enquire into the matter....Seeing all this that sibling was panicked...he took the phone and told the matter to the owner.....In fact our deterrcene did the trick.....



Within minutes I saw the owner running towards us...His face was pale red ..He was much panicked and it seemed as if he will cry any moment..In fact he was informed all this matters by his workers and sibbling.....He came and told me...."Plz brother...Don't make any trouble....we will discuss what You said..." In fact I was not ready for the compromise....He had to give the remaining bucks.....!!!


This time the puckish factor did the trick.....I offered my journalist friend a biriyani and he was happy with my treat...As I was finishing my biriyani....My phone ringed again...This time It was one of my friend calling for some money....In fact I was happy to give that cash to him just coz it was for a noble cause....afterall its My first Salary...Right...?? ...Let it do some productive work. ..... ;-)
