So what if I did not marry a bakerywala, I have converted the Mr. into a bread lover and sandwich lover... Hurray...

I request you to please please not call customers during lunch hours (nap time for many of us) and break the silence in the house... I don't know how you get to know that people are asleep and this is the right time to make a call and wake them up and ask them to buy a credit card or invest in a mutual fund. Have you fixed some hidden web camera in my house?? The loud ring of a mobile phone/landline in an otherwise silent house is enough to make people get up with a big scare.., imagine the plight of small babies and the aged.
I know you have sales targets to meet, but you can always call customers at other times of the day too... Good Luck...

I feel blessed to be in the comforts of a fan and air conditioner when I see labourers toiling in the hot sun trying to demolish the old building opposite my house. I am drenched in sweat within five minutes of walking in the hot sun and when I do not sit under the fan for a few minutes. As about 90% of the building is demolished, they spread some sheets on the heap of rubble and sleep peacefully at night under the watchful eyes of the moon. But those labourers do not seem to complain about their situation, all they have is a pot full of water next to them which also must be hot after being in the sun for so long.. Power cuts are very rare in my locality and even if so, most of the times the power comes back within 5 minutes. I read in the newspaper about a conference of Panchayat staff all over India where generators were used to operate ACs and fans, the joke being that most Panchayat representatives said their villages had no electricity at all. What a contrast.. This reminds me how lucky I am to enjoy the comforts of basic things in life which lakhs and lakhs of people have not yet experienced. Dear God, thanks for providing me such a comfortable life...
