How To Bell The Cat ?
CAT results are out. Firstly, no I didn’t try out for CAT. Many of my friends did though. Some took it seriously, and prepared well. Some took it not so seriously, and studied (apparently) for the last week. Some didn’t give a damn, and just went and wrote the exam (I don’t get the point though). Anyhow, well congratulations to all the people I know who did well. Better luck time to those who didn’t.
Ok, now that we have got all that out of the way, let us get down to the real reason I am writing this blog post. Couple of my friends had their CAT exams one day apart. The first guy (let us say MP) who falls into the category of “no studying, and yet writing”, successfully attempted the paper and got back home. Later in the day, the second guy (let us say RP), who also falls into the category of “no studying, and yet writing”, called MP up to ask him for advice as to how to tackle CAT. MP replied very seriously:
1) It is very cold in the hall, so make sure you carry a sweater or something to keep yourself warm.
2) You have to be sitting there for quite some time before and after, so make sure you carry water, and carry biscuits also to munch in between.
I don’t know how seriously RP took what MP was saying, but he would be thanking God for calling him because of point 3.
3) Don’t forget to take your hall ticket.
RP hung up (not in ager) and called my office to ask us to take a print out for him of his hall ticket. Did I mention that this was little past 10 in the night? Talk about late realization. If I am not wrong, we did have a little fun at R’s expense, telling him that we didn’t have ink in our printer, and could only print in white ink. We asked him if it was ok to paint a paper black and print with white font. I am not really sure if this was the sequence of events, but I think it was. I hope it was, because this seems like a good story.
I hereby declare that the above information is true to the best of my memory. Names were (tried to be) kept anonymous to avoid embarrasments. Cheers ! !
