IT impacts !

Converstaion started very normally with "Places to visit around Hyderabad" but end up having so much fun..:-)

sudeep :This weekend I am looking for a get away of about 200-300 KM car drive. Any idea, what are the places I can visit around Hyderabad? Also, please do provide me with the path.

Anup Guruvugari : "Also, please do provide me with the path" Side effects of being in the IT field.. J .. 'route' becomes path .! No offense intended

Ramachandra: Yeah.. "provide me with the Path" ,,,, actually cudnt recollect that the word shud be route till u mentioned it…. Certainly occupational errors…. The other day I was hearing one guy talking of a "Standalone" house.. when he was actually intending a independent house… Poor broker shud have tuff time trying to find a " Alone house standing in a huge empty area… " don't know what interpretations the guy must have made

Arun Kumar Sevakule : Hehee… Once I went to have juice at the local juice vendor and innocuously asked him whether he had a plain 'version' of nimbu pani

Sridhar Narsupalli : One late night when I went home after work, I was trying to flash my id card to open the lock and only after few secs, I realised what i'm trying to do ;-)

Sudheer Kumar Some: My experience: Once when I was searching for a house, When the owner asked my name, my reply was "Sudheer underscore some" (My id is Sudheer_some).

KrishnaKranthi G: Once we were trying to get our car into a Ferry(cruise ship). So I asked the security guy "Can the Ferry go into the Car?"(shud have been the other way)...my friends and that guy started laughing.I use find, replace a lot...that might be the effect.

Ramachandra: I dial so often 9 and wait…. I go to some place to wash my hands… I just show my hands up and wait for the water to wash it…. :P forgetting I need to turn something on… When I went to a movie theatre from office directly.. I showed the guy at the entrance my ID card and walked in… he had to call me back asking the ticket…

Vamsikrishna: Few of my friends and myself decided to go out for dinner. The place wasn't fixed yet. I said we shall decide it "run time"

Venu Vedam: And I – after a forty hour marathon in Bhubaneshwar with Powerbuilder, decided to take a break and went to a movie. In the middle of the movie, when I wanted to check the time, I kept repeatedly glancing at the bottom right corner of the silver screen!

Vidyarthi Mallam: Me getting a thought of doing an Alt+Tab while switching from a news channel to the DVD while watching TV.

Pandu: you know there have been several instances while trying to cross the road on foot I always tried to switch on the indicator

Any funny incident like this then Pls share it with me :-)...I wll be waiting to hear from you..

Today is Friday 13th!!

The two unlucky entities combine to make one super unlucky day. I didnt recognize yday it's going to be 13 and friday until my colleagues start discussing about dress theme for devils day. You know guys i heard that If you have 13 letters in your name, you will have the devil's luck . think few famous personalities has 13 letters in theri names.... better you guys count the letters in your full name right now! ;)

Friday the thirteenth is considered the unluckiest of days in many superstitions, unless you were born on Friday the thirteenth in which case it is your lucky day :-).

Pulled out interesting facts about 13th :-

The fear of Friday the 13th is called paraskavedekatriaphobia or paraskevidekatriaphobia, a specialized form of triskaidekaphobia, a phobia (fear) of the number thirteen.

More than 80 percent of high-rises lack a 13th floor.
Many airports skip the 13th gate.
Airplanes have no 13th aisle.
Hospitals and hotels regularly have no room number 13.
Italians omit the number 13 from their national lottery.
Many cities do not have a 13th Street or a 13th Avenue.
