I think the hot days are here to stay. Probably the past one week, the weather has been unbelievably hot! After some crazy rains during Chinese New Year – which ought to be hot every time of the year, now it suddenly moved to hot and dry spell. Hope it’s not another El Nino or what-not. The air cond in my room is programmed to 18C as opposed to my normal 22C. I can’t even switch it off before I go to bed now, if not, I would wake up in the middle of the night in puddle of sweat. Hopefully, the hot spell would be over soon… a moderate 30C should be nice. Haha.
Am not sure why some people simply refused to even attempt to write a letter or e-mail on their own before passing them to me to correct their grammar. Just today, a colleague came downstairs, stood beside me and told me to help her to write an e-mail. I told her to get back to her work station, type it out, then e-mail to me. I will assist her to check her grammar. At least – TRY lah. But no.. so I ended writing the entire e-mail for her. And it took me less than 10 minutes to draft one. If you are afraid of people laughing at you for making mistakes, you will never progress.
I read with so much anger the news of Sabah invasion. How on earth these people slipped into the country, undetected? If one or two, maybe not an issue.. this is the whole group of gunmen who have intention to take over our land! And best of all, the government downplay the matter and treat these gunmen with kid’s gloves. CHIN TU LAN! The persons responsible for this should resign! It’s a solid proof that they don’t even know what they are doing! Hello? Our homeland has been invaded ok! It’s no freaking joke or “small matter”! Blast the shit out of them asap! Get the fuck out from our land!
I saw on my bank website that I needed to activate my new credit cards. The thing is, I haven’t received them. So, I called the bank after procrastinating for over 2 weeks and found out, the POS LAJU people came to my house but no one was around. Bullshit! There are always people in my house, even during Chinese New Year, coz we hardly go anywhere. And if they did drop by my house, aren’t there supposed to be a consignment slip, to tell me to go collect the credit cards? So I called up the bank and was told that, since I didn’t acknowledge it for more than 20 days, the cards would automatically sent back to HQ for further action. So I told the guy on the phone to resend me the cards. Then, this guy said he can’t. Need to check with HQ first. So I said ok, then you check and let me know. Then he gave me the old consignment note. I said, What for??? If POS has sent it back to HQ, aren’t there supposed to be a new consignment note if they resend my credit cards. He told me to wait 7 days for response. So, after a week, I call them up again. Only to find out, they didn’t do anything. Luckily the girl on the line this time was helpful. So I complained to her and said, her colleague told me, the credit cards now are back to HQ when the cards are still in the POS LAJU center, even after 20 days. So… they failed to adhere to procedure lah? I wonder if the audit is going to say anything about this!
There’s this colleague who is the most hated person in the office. I think I wrote a few times about her idiocy. This week, she was hospitalized for a couple of days. She called to inform the office and her boss. But then, nobody says a word of visiting her. Usually, if someone in our office is sick, we would have an entourage to visit him or her after office hours. But since this woman is so spiteful, nobody wants to visit her. Come to think of it, she’s quite pathetic. Now, we are waiting for her to come back to kick up a fuss. Haha. Some people are so thick skin till they don’t even realize nobody likes them. It’s such a sad, sad life of reality. If you want people to be nice to you, be nice to people first. Pay it forward.
