A senior reporter at my previous office made a rocket out of an A4 sheet and blew it in the air just for fun. It flew and hit the eye of a photographer. OMG, I still remember blood oozing from the lens man’s face. Fortunately, nothing serious happened.
One guy who did not like me too well grabbed the opportunity.
“You play mischief all the time. Better take this as a lesson,” he told me loudly.
Surprisingly, I kept quiet as I was also in a state of shock.
This guy had a habit of claiming credit for everything and proclaiming “I did it,” all the time. In fact, that was a reason I could not get along well with him.
One day, the editor was furious with a particular headline.
“Who did it?” she screamed.
“I did it did it,” I said.
“What?” she sounded angrier.
Another colleague explained who “I did it” was.
Her anger turned into laughter.
And the guy actually thanked me for cooling her down.
