The Ten Commandments - Being In Office

1. Thou shalt always remember you're getting paid to work. And only work!

Socialize. Learn. Have Fun. But never forget what you're getting paid for. Because if you ain't working, you ain't good for nothing.

2. Thou shalt not lick their soles.

You can get all the fame and the money that comes with it, but getting it all at the cost of self -respect is just not worth it.

3. Thou shalt not be a pervert.

No one likes to work with someone eyeing them places all the time.

4. Thou shalt not be a bitch.

Back bitching ain't going to take you anywhere. Also, you must have heard of a bitch called Karma. My advice, stay safe, don't try this!

5. Thou shalt not stay back just for the heck of it. 

Your home has a culture. Your workplace has a culture. Let's not ruin both by staying back unnecessarily.

6. Thou shalt always remember the words: Privacy and Professionalism.

This ain't your street homie! Neither it's your home. It's office! Remember to behave appropriately.

7. Thou shalt strive to go up the hierarchy of management, not asshole-ness.

Enough said!

8. Thou shalt let your work show who's the boss.

Nobody is irreplaceable in the corporate jungle, but hey! if your absence means a few days of headache for your boss, well done!

9. Thou shalt strive to write more and more lines of better code, not mail. 

When you have no work, you write mails. When you write mails, you're not doing any work. You have already read the commandment # 1. Need I say more?

10. Thou shalt not let your work affect your personal or social life.

Work is never going to end. But your life is. And so is your boss's life. Make sure you always remember this, and so does your boss!
