At work – on IM ,
Murali : Pick a number between 140,000 and 170,000.
Me (Annoyed at the range of numbers, thinking…no interest to pick a number or even type it. Copy paste 140,000) : 140,000
Murali : Okay
Two days later,
Murali: I won. 🙂
Murali: The job report estimate number pool money…I won.
Murali’s team at work places bets on what the prediction for the number of jobs is going to be. This is a monthly report generated by govt. Each time, team members pool in $5 each along with a number. Turns outt, this time job report numbers are close to 146,000 and Murali won. ( I guess, sometimes it helps that I be annoyed.)
Out of the $100 , Murali had to take his sub-team out for lunch at the office cafe. And look who benefits from the rest of the money. 🙂
