Work goals and PTA under the microscope

The PTA has now not only banned TikTok, but has also nearly doubled the tax on iPhones, meaning it has destroyed the prospective careers of countless content producers. Will the curse of these young ones hit the national regulator anytime soon? I sure hope so, as we read these tweets from our android phones thanks to the new tax. I bring you all this and more in this week’s social media roundup.

I remember when I watched Phir Hera Pheri for the first time, I laughed for a good two minutes when Akshay said he has studied a very difficult degree – ITUS,  Iski topi uske sar. This tweet reminds me of that. They used to call BBAs and MBAs jack of all trades. Mal Baichna ana chahiye sounds more apt especially when MBA grads go on to sell surf and soap at high end parchun ki dukan mein (looking at the FMCGs).

Technical analysis is like astrology. To me it’s all mumbo jumbo. Hit or a miss, God knows.

The very fact that takka is used as an insult is one of the reasons why we lost East Pakistan. Using it in a derogatory form is not endorsed in this magazine.

Oh wow, you don’t say. We didn’t know.

Competition is heating up. That means someone is bound to eat into your market share.

PTA out there defending themselves after all of tiktok comes out against them for raising the taxes on mobiles. Defecting the blame onto the real culprits, the FBR, is the right move. This is like PTA saying “yo, go hate on them please. I have nothing to do with this.”

Maybe we’ll get clean smog-free air this way.

This is the equivalent of the SBP conducting an OMO and then the banks lending back to the government. It is literally just this.

Banks just give me PTSD. Haven’t stepped into one in years and don’t plan on doing it either. Why would anyone want to torture themselves.

These are work goals. This also goes to show that everyone feels most productive at home and in a homely environment. Maybe this will also make our bosses realize that we write better at home?

We are structurally uncomfortable with innovation. That’s it. That’s the tweet.
