Why do people work after "working hours"? Too much work or too little planning. Does it depend upon which level you are in the organisation? Does it depend upon how much work you have at home? This thought often crosses me when I come across our clients. Infact , now that I ahve nothing much to study, I do not crib when I have to stay a little longer. I just start surfing the net for some information and time just runs away. Do people get paid for the hours they are expected to put in after the office hours? Generally, I have seen most women leave by 7 .30 pm but men hang around seeing cricket match scores, gossiping and of course doing some work too. I admit that I am never able to finish my work within 5 30. Is that due to procrastination? Is it because I have a laptop and I can always work on it when I go home? ??

Let me share my experience with one of our current clients. The building is of four floors each floor containing a maximum of 10 employees. There are hardly 5 women in the entire building. The accounts department is an all CA team and hence exactly knows what we know and what we dont. We only do some sort of a reporting for them and hence apparently we are not their AUDITORS!. Good heavens!! Generally, I have the habit of pullling a chair beside the client and doing my work. Seldom, I sit in the soom alloted for us. The very next day , they came up to me and literally told me to stay put in my room!!
Worse, the client has a complicated access system.Every bloody door there needs an access. Worse, the restroom is located in some floor for which you need to use the access card. When we asked the client to give us an access card , they told us that that we need to fill an application form. Heavens!!! Worse than applying for a ration card. Since you cannot leave the audit room, we just thought we can use the intercom to ask them any queries. But lo, the telephone has a password . They openly tell us that they want us to leave them soon so that they are at peace. My god! On the judgement day , God is definitely going to review the number of curses that these people have sweared on us.
