2.Daydream and ComplainNow when you are up and at work, isn’t it much easier to think and complain about thirst and hunger, whine about your parched throat and ponder over what you will eat and drink at Iftar rather than work on the project whose deadline had passed last week.
3.Plan Iftar and Sehri PartiesInstead of planning and preparing for important meetings at work, it’s so much more fun checking reviews of every restaurant’s Iftar buffet and hot new deals for Iftar and Sehri parties.
4.Watch Ramadan Videos and CampaignsDon’t deny it, instead of working on that presentation your boss asked you to, you’ve been busy watching the latest Ramadan ads on your Facebook and showing them to your colleagues too!
5.Take Time OffA large amount of useful time at work is spent counting how many holidays you have already taken and how many more you can take in Ramadan. You spend more time trying to LOOK productive or planning how many times you can call in sick or show up late in a single month.
6.Fuss Over Silly ThingsThe most debated topic this month is its spelling: is it RAMADAN or RAMAZAN? Instead of having brainstorming sessions at the office, most of us prefer to involve ourselves in these futile discussions.How else does one pass the time?
7.Follow Ramadan ShowsWith the increasing trend of Sehri and Iftar transmissions, game shows, cooking shows and Ramadan drama serials a lot of time is spent on following and discussing these shows even if you pretend not to like them 😉
So if you have not been involved in all this stuff up there but are being punctual, completing projects and meeting deadlines at your workplace… wait a second, who are we kidding?! We’re all in this together!So if you have not been involved in all this stuff up there but are being punctual, completing projects and meeting deadlines at your workplace… wait a second, who are we kidding?!
