Heroine is a software engineer in the same company. She does not have a
life either. She spends eight hours in front of her PC, thirteen hours
in front of the TV and the remaining, sleeping.
One day, Hero meets Heroine in a staff meeting. They argue endlessly
about the insanity of Microsoft applications.. especially Outlook 2003.
Couple of such fights later, Heroine is found drinking coffee with Hero
in Office canteen.
"What is life?" asks the Hero looking at the vacuum right above her
"I've been wondering too." sighs the heroine.
"Why are we fighting over Outlook 2003?" Hero drinks his black coffee.
"And why are we not talking about Lotus NOtes" Heroine sips her Latte.
Hero shakes his head. "It's not about software products. It is about
life. I guess life is much bigger than OUtlook 2003."
Heroine nods. "I think it is. I am not sure though. Do you know that
Microsoft has come up with a fix to that bug you've been using to prove
Outlook is a worthless piece of garbage?"
"Heroine," Hero is now determined, "From this moment onwards, I am not
discussing anything remotely related to software."
"Fine Hero," says Heroine, "Good bye then."
Hero then returns all the Sybase manuals to the library and rents out
"how to live a life?"
Heroine meanwhile gets into an altercation with the villain during a
conversation on Sharepoint server. Villain vows to format the hard disk
of the heroine. Heroine takes her PC and runs away from the cubicle
trying to escape from the villain's evil intentions. Since it is night
shift, no one comes to her rescue.
Hero, who has been reading "how to live a life" very seriously, suddenly
finds out that he loves the heroine as much as he used to love Tetris.
So hero messages Heroine on Yahoo Instant messenger. But there is no
reply. Hero does not understand it. He knows that the heroine is
supposed to be in night shift. What is she doing in Night shift if not
on Yahoo Instant Messenger? As far as he know that is what people are
supposed to do in night shift.
Hero senses trouble. He runs barefooted on the Information Superhighway
and reaches office just in time to see the villain snatch the PC out of
heroine's hands and type the command "Format C:\". When his fingers get
to the "Enter" key, hero delivers the killer punch on villain's face.
Villain is thrown back. But in the process he manages to press the Enter
The world comes to a standstill. The sky roars. The Rain pours.
Heroine breaks down. Villain is on cloud nine. But our Hero isn't sad.
He is smiling. Villain cannot understand. Hero then says, "Villain, You
should learn DOS properly. Your grave mistake...". He shows the monitor
to Villain. The DOS command prompt says "Are you sure?". It is waiting
for a "Y" to commence the formatting operation. Hero then simply presses
Villain cries in frustration "Nooooooo" and charges like a bull. Then
follows a lengthy fight. Heroine meanwhile calls the police and they
come right after hero beats the villain to pulp. Without asking any
questions, the police understand who is hero and who is villain and take
him into custody. Heroine, tears in her eyes, takes her PC, switches it
on and jumps with joy when she finds her favorite Calvin and Hobbs
collection in tact in her C drive.
"You saved my data" she exclaims.
"No, you saved it yourself." hero says.
"No.. Jesus saves. I don't" she cries.
"Nothing happened na." Hero consoles.
"Let us get married" heroine sheds some more tears, "I want someone by
my side to protect the Calvin and Hobbs collection on my PC".
"I love you Heroine" says the hero.
"I love you Hero" says the heroine.
"So you agree that Outlook 2003 is a bad product".
"No I don't. Why not we talk about Lotus nOtes?"
