Cupid in the cubicle?

There's more to workplace than politics...romance maybe.

PART I

When you think of office, what is the first thing that hits your mind? Did you just say workplace politics? Maybe for some. But, for many young hearts there's more to office than just workplace war and other stress-booster games people play...romance maybe!

Did the workaholics ever turn around to see the other side of the fence? Things which happen in the same office. I wasn't aware about them until recently when some major changes happened around here. All of a sudden the boring, dull place that I couldn't relate to became chirpy and lively with lot of buzz to talk about.

I will reveal the juicy tit-bits of some unique and some clichéd situations of the so-called office romance. So, get set for some real fun. You might relate to one of them...

# LOVE PENTAGON = MESS!!
There were tonnes of giggling voices I could hear from near my seat and I sprung to attention as I found out that it is all because of this new TDH (Tall, Dark and Handsome) person who joined. Rahul's seat was right next to me. And now the hottest girls were leaving no damn excuse on earth to flock to his seat either to talk or offer some help to the new entrant and maybe sometimes it was just a glimpse they were craving for. And well, why not? The guy was worth a look at least. He looked like a perfect gentlemen except for a drawback (probably this is my perception), should I say he has. He is divorced. But, as long as you are "just having fun", these things really don't matter.

Anyways, it took me 2-3 weeks to make out that it was not just friendly talks the gals were upto. There was more to it. Something fishy, for sure.

Rahul was nice to all the girls except for one special in that group. But, that innocent girl, Rhea, was more worried rather than feeling happy about it. She was worried about the competition. The other girls were trying hard to win the boy. It sometimes turns hilarious when her eyes are fixed more on Rahul's seat than her own work. And how all of a sudden she found a friend in me and started wishing me by coming to my seat (which obviously is an excuse) though she will spend just 2 minutes here and the next 25 minutes on the seat next to me.

Well, right now she is struggling to win importance as the guy still hasn't confessed his feelings. I just wish her luck in her mission. Hope she gets the guy...
