The dead protocol and my task is to do some research on this
project before coding a linux testing client for it :(. I
hate you micr0$0ft.
The Shora CEO
I did a mistake in joining a company which it self was
nothing just a piece of shit, and only because of the CEO
(shora). The guy is horrible, I just can't believe guy like
him exist in world. For me he is just "shoot on sight" kind
of a person. I joined his company on 27 December, and coded
a 10gig sniffer(kernel mamped sniffer), and front end
application. He promised me to get an office in Pakistan
which he refused. And instead of making a team in Pakistan
he handed over the project to xyz on 12 march. and on
14 march, he behaved abnormally with me, just to make me
feel bad and leave company. That's what I did and quit job
on 14th of march. That was the shocking experience of my
life. I worked for him 2.5 months and he ended up paying me
just one month. I remember I was feeling so stress at his
behavior. I was alone in home and my father was in Pindi. I
decided to spend some time with relatives, just to keep my
self away from the thought which kept coming and making me
feel horrible. I did this and left for Pindi the next day.
Meanwhile "Shora" kept calling me to make me feel bad and
forget about the idea of getting my remaining pay and I kept
listening quietly. on 20th, I mailed my CV to xyz and
got an interview call on 22 march. I was in Peshawar at
that time and rushed back to Lahore.
Interview went great and I got job. I was so happy because
once I was not selected in my previous appearance in
xyz. But that interview was so helpful for me to get
the idea of where I stand and what's need to be done. I
really worked hard on the missing/weak skill set and I had
no problem in getting interview clear this time.
Now after getting job in xyz, new chapter of my life
opened. On the next day I received call from "shora" saying,
"masood It's nice you joined xyz and I recommended you
as they were not sure may be to hire you or not. And it
would be great if you join my project under xyz.". I
refused straight away, saying "I don't wanna work for you".
He apologies and said lets talk on Monday, 26th, which was
my first day in xyz. I refused to work for him in front
of my VP. He said, "ok,... If you don't want to work then
I'll make you leave this job as I have a contract with
xyz and it also state that they will never hire an X of
my company". For me It was a joke of the day, as there was
no such contract because when they signed the contract I was
present there and I got the job same day I appeared on my
interview so there was no confirmation left to be taken,
which later confirmed by the VP. But he just wanted to make
me work for him as he was struggling with the new guys he
was working with.
So I decided to work for him on a condition if he pay me
my remaining salary, which he accepted but his condition was
to pay me half and the remaining half when the
project finishes. I accepted it too and I started working on
his project but under
the umbrella of xyz. After two week there was no
outcome of the commitment which he made. So I refused to
work, again and now this
time I challenge him to do any thing he want. I was forced
by my mother not to take any illegal action against him. But
in Pakistan it's hard to get some thing done legally. He
threatened using the name of his uncle, who is a magistrate. And
wanted to take an action against me through him. Now it was
too much for
me to hear all this quietly. I said look, "If I had any
attention to take my money back, I would have don't it till
now by hook or by crock. And do what ever you can do, let me
see what you can do".
I reported my VP and refused to work for him, which he
accepted and now I'm currenlty working with another team on
a separate project.
"Shora" is now looking for a guy to help him out and finish
his Idoit product. Some time I hate to see him around and
some time I feel to pay him money to go and get your self a
good book about human resource management. The two other guy
of xyz refused to work for him because they find him
Back in the days of Mahvi, some one name Mishal meet me on
naseeb. But she was more like a hello-hi girl in my list. We
never talk most of the time and truly speaking, I even
forgot she is SHE :). She wanted me to re join orkut which I
left (truly cause of mahvi). Anyway, Mishal is from Lahore
and she is nice. In fact not as good/Chilling as Mahvi was
at first appearance/meeting. And the most important stuff,
I'm not thinking other then to be a nice friend with her
(Some thing I learned from mahvi).
I missed mahvi alot when I was in so stress because of my
"shora" boss, durring the period of march 12 till April 1
but I know every thing will fade away as the time goes on.
God Bless you Mahvi Where ever you are.
Today Ami going Canada for a full 1 year :(. Will Miss you mom.
