The power to undo (CTRL Z)

Yesterday there was major goof up in my work, but nobody is complaining, Ahem!!! the part about no one complaining is a dream I have. For starters I did not goof up yesterday and even if I did that no Boss will is cool enough to just leave that without saying anything. But I was just wondering if we could actually make use of CTRL Z in our day to day life. Wow!! just when you realize that you have done something wrong, simply undo that. Just press CTRL Z and presto, it will be done or rather "undone"!!!

How I wish this was true, CTRL Z will become the most sought after thing in this world. Well, who does not make mistakes, if you don't then there is something seriously wrong with you. I am not talking about making blunders everyday, but everyday we do or say certain things and instantly wish if we could undo that! Think of all the things you could undo, correct all the mistakes, make up for all that you did to cause hurt and pain to a loved one.

Imagine what we could have done with our school, college and academic results, if we had this power to 'Undo'. You dnt need anything extra for this, just select what you want to undo and hit the button. Ohh...the one thing that I would LOVE to undo is that time when the nite farewell party was busted by the authorities at school. I was in class 10 and no I am not saying that I would undo the party, just the busting part by the authorities. The party was rocking, that is till we came to school the next day......

It was kind of compulsory to hold the party at night, think that was our style of rebelling against authorities. Mine was a girls school, so you can imagine how rebellious gals can get if they want to. One girl did not reach home till late at night (She stayed over at a friend's place and in the excitement of the party, forgot to call her parents)the parent called up the authorities, one thing led to the other and we were BUSTED!! Next day, the authorities gave us hell, it was very embarassing when we were asked to report to the Principal along with our parents....GOD!!!

Wish I had the power of CTRL Z then, and I wish I have the power of CTRL Z now and wish I have it forever. But I dnt want F1 in the same way. Come on I do not want to be shouting F1 F1 F1....like that techie guy who was falling from a multi storied building instead of shouting HELP. Shouting a simple 'Help Me' would have certainly saved that guy. God forbid....
