Eventually Google had announced that storage for photos will be counted against the defined limit and users need to pay if their photos exceed the limit. So, I had started to look out for alternative online storage choice available for storing photos and most important criteria I have set while choosing online storage option was the affordability. Google photos cloud storage pricing was little bit higher than the competitors like Microsoft’s OneDrive and moving out from Google photos was added pain in the ass. Even though, Google has enabled seamless moving to other competitor online cloud storage option easier, the ease of backup and familiarity in using Google photos for such long-time was a major hurdle while looking out. In addition, trusting Google photos unlimited storage option for lifetime, I have installed Google photos app in all my relatives and family members' phone. It did not stop there, I have convinced them to upload all their old mobile photo into Google photos and ensured they follow this practice, even if they switch their mobile phones every year. Now, if I am moving out of Google photos, then I need to lookout for option that offers family sharing and larger storage space at an affordable pricing.

In recent times, mobile phones have become one of the most important gadgets and can be found with almost every citizen in this world. The basic functionality of the mobile phone is to connect people wherever they are and to ease communication between people. Let us get to the point, most mobile phones launched recently have focused primarily on cameras and processor. However, earlier the iterations in camera were noticeable and the upgrade made sense. Recently, the cameras upgrade made by companies were very minimal and the changes were hard to detect. The prices of the mobile phones have also gone up drastically and the value of mobile phone upgrade makes very little sense. People were forced to select mobile phones based on the compulsion to show off their status and financial ability to get upgraded mobile phones. With the COVID pandemic hitting everyone hard, the time has come to compare the basic functionalities of mobile phone and the cost associated with it.

After working fiercely for the past 10 days (about 1 and a half weeks) with my manager and with one of the most irritating onsite teams, I wanted to take a short break from work for a few days. However, with the Covid-19 pandemic situation across the globe and severe lockdown restrictions, I had no other choice but to connect back to work the next day post weekend work. Therefore, I was hoping that no new work was assigned by my manager and after a prolonged time, I can spend some quality time with my family. Even though I did not get any new work from the onsite team, my manager was bothering me once in a few minutes to check on my status and to gather a few insights from other account owners. Out of frustration, I used to log off from my office laptop and continue to work on my laptop, as my manager would ping me often for the status update. After completion of work, I used to send the updates to my manager at once and after a few minutes, my manager will call me again to further enhance the information with recent updates.

So, for past one week I was completely putting in my hard work to complete all the task list shared by those irritating onsite teams and my stupid manager. Out of curiosity, I wanted to check about the submission date for the assigned work and was pushing my manager each day to validate it with the onsite team. Finally, before the weekend during the call, my manager requested onsite team to share expected submission date and further actions on the opportunity shared. I was shell shocked by the response from the onsite team, as they responded back stating that they have shared initial questionnaire to the client point of contact and was awaiting their response. In mean time, the onsite team felt that client might need few information and was requesting offshore team to work on unnecessary documents, before even client shared their requirements. I was getting even more furious and was requesting my manager to drop note stating that myself would be supporting this request post clarifications from client. However, my manager backstabbed with irrelevant mails and information and to know more, please feel free to check out the blog posts in “G R Team Sites”

The excitement of going home for a long vacation was overshadowing the fact that my manager has approved work from home for continuous two days before my long vacation and I didn’t have any work to be completed for the rest of the week. I kept my travel back to native as a surprise to my family and was pretending that I was on my usual routine in my workplace. However, even being rude with my mom and wife that I was busy with my work, my family was checking about my safety precautions to the Covid-19 pandemic and they were worried about my well-being to the extent that they want me to back to my native as early as possible. Since I had conveyed that I would be busy with my work due to the upcoming long vacation, my family had no other option but to anxiously wait till my arrival, and they were also unaware of the work from trend happening across the technology industry. So, I was traveling to my hometown in my car and was pretending to be in my workplace and my family was unaware of my surprise, and finally, when I reached home my family was shell shocked and couldn’t believe that I have reached home sooner than they expected.
