Its that time of the year

When appraisals happen!!!!!!!!!!!!! I hate this time.. totally...

Appraisals have always been a kind of nightmare for me.. wresting a good rating from my various bosses... giving ratings to my colleagues.. recriminations.. shouting matches.. slamming doors.. arguments..

For some reason or the other appraisals never go off smoothly (except for the 2 times i can think of.. in my 7.5 yrs of work life).. if you dont have tears in your eyes.. look carefully around you.. your colleagues will!!!

And anyway, most of the times i am not very convinced about the appraisal system, in research in any case... the problem is i am very touchy about my performance.. if its unfounded by any chance, then the boss has had it from me!!!!

An extremely energy sapping exercise this!!! And i hate filling forms.. sob sob

Cant we just have a happy appraisal time.. which is actually motivating... instead of this cruel monster that it has become... wishful thinking, you say..

So this year... lets see how it goes.. i am wary... i am already tired of whats to come..

ya... m tensed to. cause the work tat i have done, dunno whethere its gonna pay off or not. but i feel this time its not gonna be much as it is the increments have been postponed by a sad 6 mnths. but is this ok as we atleasst have a job compared to colleagues of mine whom i knw have lost their job. and its a horryifying nightmare to even think of such a thing.

@knife.. probably that cake had been planned earlier for christmas as the next week ppl were plannin to take off's and over that the mail and the cake was a coincidence i think so...
