Rahul Subramanian’s ongoing Instagram series, Office Employee Spycam, captures every fear you have ever had about being caught bitching about your workplace/boss. He just put out his 13th episode, in which Rahul is seen talking to his “fellow employee” Kumar Varun (other half of Random Chikibum), bitching and moaning about everything at work. From his boss calling an urgent meeting at 7 pm on a Friday evening, to how all taxi bills should be reimbursed, to why his boss must give him a promotion, to the latest fire drill rant, every episode is relatable AF.
While Rahul’s rants are relatable, Kumar’s interjections are show stealers because they are obvious questions that are borderline daring, and run the risk of calling out Rahul’s bullshit claims. For instance, whenever Rahul wants to take an action, Kumar will just slip in, “toh phir tune bol diya boss ko?” to which Rahul’s response is always sheepish. Walter Mitty moments we all have gone through: lots of internal anger and frustration, with little to zero real action IRL.
