Penny Gets Pounded

All these years Penny was wise and Pound was foolish. Penny I guess could not take it any more and needed a good solid bareback Pounding - and so it has happened.

The American Economy is in doldrums and it is taking everyone along people all around the world with it for a new "joy" ride.

Sometimes I feel in some situations a mere "Fuck off" said right in beginning than keeping quiet is better than taking crap. Saves the person taking crap all the aggravation and the one giving crap humiliation when things burgeon into something unnecessary.

This is what I feel people should have done when Bush took office and made his first blunders. Would have saved all of us this aggravation. But in his case though - he is no way humiliated like most of us are.

Anyways the gist of this post is - going into the weekend with a loud and clear message looming over me - that I might/might not have a job in the coming days.

Ahhh what can one do -...I am getting Pounded in the process too and feel sorry for Penny.

aah i might not be totally affected coz im still studyin but then i was talkin to my bro over the phone today, hes workin in the US...the fact that he jokingly said "tere tohbahut contacts hain mujhe bhi naukri dilwa de" didnt amuse me ...
all the best to u ceedy!

Cess said...

oh, i hope u ll still have ur job. My company decided to cut off the extra unnecessary expenses for the sake of fun for his employees due to the worldwide financial crisis!
I was in USA in November 2nd 2004 when they voted for Bush sadly... anyway hopefully this time they will make a better decision.

The situation the Economy( American n therefore Global)is at currently is very scary.

2 weeks back 2 of my friends got fired.They were called at 8:30 AM in the morning, told to pack their bags n leave.

All of us live in fear. Prayers n wishes for everything to go well at ur end.

Solitaire said...

Wanted to add..we can't always say "FUCK OFF" to people. I hope you have heard this phrase.."bhes ni aagar bhagwat na karay". People will never get it.

ceedy said...

@pavi
Yes - it not fear so much - but the whole idea that I might have to go back abruptly is what bugs me.....its like someone pulling the rug right from below my feet...

Thanks for the wishes...and hows the new job?

ceedy said...

@solitaire
Agree - but there are many bheses in a herd - and it cant be generalized that each one of them is going to react in the same way.

ceedy said...

@brocasarea
thanks bud

ceedy said...

Alameen said...

And how's bush related to the economic state...

rantravereflect/ jane said...

I'M ALREADYYYY SOOO JOBLESS :)
heeeee..
sooooo i dun think i feel threatened by that one :D

lol at PENNY GETS POUNDED!
:D
and rotfl at 'I'm getting POUNDED and feel sorry for penny'

i beg(A FEW PENNIES) to differ:
i think Penny ought to feel sorry for ya:
penny is happy that she's WISE YET AGAIN,
and letting YOU get pounded, in place of HER..

My suggestion:
Have an AFfair with Penny,
bRIBE HER (in your pretty petty penny ways) into telling you who got pOUNDED by pound,
Contact them & Make a secret society with all these POUNDED people,
and one night, while thePOUND falls asleep, GO GANG-POUND TEH POUND..

:)

ceedy said...

@rayshma

yup...pounding has reduced but the apprehension is still lurking

ceedy said...

@alameen

thanks man...

and how is bush related to all this...the only thing i can say is read all the news from last 8 years...re: him and his actions and policies

ceedy said...

@jane

/i beg(A FEW PENNIES) to differ:
i think Penny ought to feel sorry for ya:
penny is happy that she's WISE YET AGAIN,
and letting YOU get pounded, in place of HER../

The bottomline is if you side penny - you are bound to beg....so begging to differ is natural...

dunno about penny whether she is happy being wise -but i sure am pounded really hard and getting pounded is good - so am going to be foolish


Hahah - at your secret society idea- wanna be the president - you seem to have been pounded already :)

Stupidosaur said...

Best of luck buddy. Things seem to be getting better for me here. Busy so noy much bloghopping these dats. Fingers crossed.

ceedy said...
