    Do you like surprises. I like surprises and have experienced also. But now a days some surprises can't be given like going to someone's house and give surprise because now adays all are busy and sometimes when we go to give surprise they are not available at home and to go to some people's house we have to take appointment. Even when you phone some keep their phone off in the afternoon .

    The surprises I remember when I got promotion as Senior Assistant in Office. I had not given any exam but I got promoted from Steno to Senior Assistant and was given the job of bank reconcilation of the whole Company. I was not even a graduate and did not know much about accounting. But our Vice President was confident that I will handle the Job well. I took it as a challenge and learnt the job and was successful in handling.

    Recently my brother and sister in law gave a surprise coming home. Luckily we had just come home and was really surprised to see them.

    Once my husband brought a saree for me and gave a surprise ,usually he does not buy and I buy according to my choice.

    I don't remember the other surprise s just now

    Bank reconciliation ? The "joy" of the daily Tally ? In pre-computer times, girls developed biceps opening and closing large ledger books, and lifting and moving them as well.

    No need for a/c knowledge or a college degree to deal with double entry books. The ability to concentrate with the work at hand, without being disrupted by the noise in the office is the prime requirement to be responsible for book reconciliations. You must have had the power to control and get a peaceful mind that focussed on your work, and get on with what needs to be done. Not an easy thing for most people. Your boss must have recognized that in offering you the promotion, and a critical job.

    Only in private enterprises employees get their just rewards, based on abilities, rather than paper qualifications.

    Dear Viji,
    Once my son gave me a real surprise. He was coming on a visit from US to see us and so we were expecting him. But when he came he brought our grandson also with him which he kept a secret. We were very happy to see our grandson also with our son.
    PS

    Glad you enjoyed my post but sad you don't like surprises. You must be a simple person not expecting anything
