i reached 15 minutes late. unfortunately for me, i didn't receive any message either. either way, the meeting went off fine (hopefully i haven't messed up my manager's opinion of me too much :D), and sneha and i went back to our desks.
it so happened that we both had to meet someone that day, and he hadn't reached work yet. sneha and i decided we'll go meet him together when he arrives.
2 hours later.
(actual sms conversation follows)
s: He hs cm jst nw.30 seconds later.
k: You can im me na..if ur feeling rich you can better spend the money by buying me lunch...unless you have free sms just like me :) anyway..we'll meet him now
(sneha calls me)
s: you okay?a minute later.
k: ya...i'm coming there...let's go.
(i walk over to sneha's desk)
k: let's go meet him.(5 minutes of discussion follow, till we finally realise exactly what happened)
s: who *are* you trying to meet!!!
sometimes, timing is everything.
ps: a vital but implied piece of info is missing from the story. let's see who can figure it out - other than sneha, of course :P
