Fidgeting fingers, and sweating brows. I have told her a lot of times, but still she does this. I don't know why! Does she really not understand, or does she simply pretend? Boy, she gets onto my nerves really... What am I going to do with her? How am I going to make this presentation? The one who wears a sharp tie counts on me for this presentation, he is my boss, and how am I going to break the news to him that I have no slides at all... It's all her fault, yes... her fault! Arrrghhh... I am so furious now!

She could have asked me before putting my formals for wash. If only she had asked, it would have been so much easier now. I had most of the work saved on my stupid pendrive which was in my stupid pocket, and which she stupidly put it for wash. It was the first thing I saw in the morning, the wet pants hanging onto the cloth-string. Oh, I lost my temper that very instant. I shouted at her, didn't allow her to utter a word. I quickly left for work, didn't bother to take the lunch box. I was really mad at her.

Time's ticking, and I have only few minutes left before I meet the boss. I frantically search the laptop bag for another pendrive, and I find one. Oh wait! This is the same one, the one I had in my stupid pocket. She actually took it out and put it in the bag before washing my stupid pant! Shit! Shit! Shit! What have I done? Well, this was a moment's repentance, and I moved on with the presentation. It went well. The boss was happy with my work.

I returned home with some guilt, but she helped me by not bringing it up at all. Yeah, I ate something, after all, I had eaten nothing all through the day at work. She was happy serving food on my plate, and showed no sense of anger at all. While retiring to bed, I murmured, "Sorry!" - softly enough for her to hear, and my pride to not lose its status. She just ignored it and gave me a good night kiss!
