    Font - Hustle Minhaj (Rohit) ... @rohshah07 Guys, what's a random scam you pulled off at work? A client once found our 30 page report too long. So I reduced the font size by 2 points and the report was 22 pages. He saw it and was like "guys this is fantastic" 5:54 PM · Jun 9, 2021 · Twitter Web App 631 Retweets 116 Quote Tweets 7,060 Likes

    Font - Dealer's Lair @bobdealer80 Replying to @rohshah07 Client wanted a document on Sunday for no reason, which would have meant a weekend gone. Added about 5000000 pages of wingdings and sent the draft. He obviously opened it much later in the week and called to say the agreement was corrupted. By that time the revised doc was ready. 11:28 AM · Jun 10, 2021 · Twitter for Android

    Font - Juhi Modi @juhimodi Replying to @rohshah07 My friend left her handbag sitting prominently on her desk & slipped out to visit a Diwali mela with me. The scam worked for 4 hours. Her colleagues who poked their head into her cubicle thought she must be around because her handbag's here. 5:16 AM · Jun 10, 2021 · Twitter for iPhone

    Font - Rohit Bharati @vividBharati Replying to @rohshah07 A client kept asking for revision of an audio file. We started renaming the file as rev_5, rev_6 and so on. He approved the 7th which was the same as the first file we sent. 11:24 AM · Jun 10, 2021 · Twitter for iPhone

    Font - Chris @Chris32525356 Replying to @rohshah07 Tool and die here. Had to take .001 of an inch off a piece of steel. That's about 1/4 of the thickness of your hair. I put the steel in the fridge for an hour and gave it back. 5:49 PM · Jun 10, 2021 · Twitter Web App

    Font - Arti Singh @artijourno Replying to @rohshah07 I submitted a story, within 10 mins editor calls saying the story doesn't make sense, you'll have to rewrite. My colleague suggested me to resend it again after 5-6 hrs. I did the same with hardly any changes. My editor msgs: 'This is fantastic.' 8:10 AM · Jun 10, 2021 · Twitter for Android

    Font - हर्ष @HarshooChachz Replying to @rohshah07 A friend and I, put up posters near printers that said they were voice activated and you just had to say commands for shit to get done. Had everyone including the brand director and the marketing director shouting "Print" and "Scan" at machines. Hysterical 8:13 AM · Jun 10, 2021 · Twitter for Android

    Font - Harhsit Parmar ... @eggjhatlee Replying to @rohshah07 and @akshaykanitkar Our boss had a tendency to forget about the directions he's given so we'd regularly just change the font and colours of presentation he'd blasted couple of days back and he'd be like this is exactly what I've wanted. Fun times. 10:48 AM Jun 10, 2021 · Twitter for Android

    Font - lyeronical @LosingMotion Replying to @rohshah07 Our boss kept rejecting the brand manual & our designers were getting irritated at his unnecessary feedback. We didn't make any changes for 2 weeks. I sent the draft manual, renamed it each time to mark each revision(that never happened). The 'draft' got approved after few weeks. 9:47 AM · Jun 10, 2021 · Twitter for Android

    Font - Vikram Poddar clubhouse@vikrampoddar @BoredRoomComedy Replying to @rohshah07 Boss used to grill every team member on what deals and leads we are working on. To save my skin, I would reverse the sequence in my list from last time and palm it off as a new list. 9:16 AM · Jun 10, 2021 · Twitter Web App

    Font - Gaurav Bagaria @twiteravbagaria ... Replying to @rohshah07 If a deliverable was due & I wasn't ready, I would send the client a corrupt zip file using a hex editor at the end of the day so it won't open. Then work on it overnight & send it the following day after client complained about file not opening. Only did it a couple of times 5:52 PM · Jun 10, 2021 · Twitter for Android
