PLEASURE MEETING YOU


I would love to keep this one short & sweet... (Hopefully)...
Here goes the story... We initially had a very beautiful & attractive visiting card. I call it attractive because it was partly RED. Yup, my favourite color on earth. One fine day, all of a sudden, we realize that the TOP MANAGEMENT has decided to change our cards.. Man, what a rude shock I was in for....How I loved our old cards... With a heavy heart, I gave my old cards to get a new set of cards. Fine, what could we do... Nothing.. TOP management decides you see....
Anyways, it was time for me to inaugurate my new visiting card. With sheer luck I had a meeting in INFOSYS.. Yes you got it right... INFOSYS... My joys knew no bound.... Now little did I grieve about my old cards.. Was lost in INFY world...
THE D DAY arrive finally. I entered INFY campus.. I was too lost to even talk to my managers. The usual security check at INFY. I told the security whom we wanted to meet & gave him my card as he wanted. What happens next???? Is absolutely unbelievable....
This security guy calls up the concerned person. Guess what he says.......He tells that someone from 'PLEASURE MEETING YOU ' has ccome to meet you... We stared at the security guy for a minute.. Flabbergasted, zapped, baffled to the core.. Shell shocked actually...
To our utter shock we realized that after our name, the card had Pleasure Meeting You....
Poor guy mistook it for our company name... What a hearty laugh we had...
Indeed it was PLEASURE MEETING YOU... Guess more for me.. I'm sure you know why...INFOSYS... Rings a bell.....

This simply shows that while u r at the top u can not only do wonders but also blunders
In the belief of trying to please ur clients & making efforts to show u r different, u r not giving the info which needs to be given instead giving a wrong info

Do Companies take back old cards when they come out with newly designed cards? And didnt you see (read) the new card?

Will some day get you to talk with some long time Infy folks.... you will then be remedied of the affliction... :)
