Lost Identity !

I could very much regard myself being oblivious to a lot of people at my workplace. One reason being that I am like any other in the bunch of ASE-Trainees who work for this place and the other being the fact that I have not really done anything so very substantial that people would begin to know me. Having fought with quite a few people in the top brass I do expect them to know me though for all the wrong reasons. But other than them I would very much expect a whole bunch of people to recognize me even when I am in the groggiest and foggiest of states. This lot includes my parents, close friends and some relatively unknown people like the company guard. Having witnessed people going home after working for 12 hrs or more at times I guess he always has the last laugh. But surprisingly enough these days he asks for our identity card. For months together this very guy has witnessed us walk in and out at the oddest hours of the office so I always wonder what is the point of asking an identity when u know who I am .Now it may be that he suffers from some form of memory loss or his memory gets erased every morning or well maybe one of those mundane company polices which never make sense. It would not have been so much of a pain if I did not have to walk around with a big blue band around my neck all the time. Then there would be those prospective credit card sellers coming in the afternoon if u forgot to remove the card while heading to the nearest chaiwala and more than that it would make the whole word know how proud u are working for this place. Well anyways since I always fall into the class of people who flout rules here I receive an official mail which almost threatens me to wear my I-card and again a reminder of the fact that I would be causing myself an embarrassment in the morning if I am not doing the same. Wish I could be turned back home by the guard saying--"Madam hum to jaante nahi aap kaun hain " I wish my identity would get lost in his memory forever and I would never have to report to work again.
