The long and short about How I Met Ms Tan



Some people, you know you will end up falling in love with the very moment your eyes met. A similarly twisted logic applies to me and Ms Tan: the moment I laid my eyes on her in the interview room, I knew she will be a pain in my backside for a very, very long time.

For the past two nights, I have been working till nine plus, alone, in that possibly haunted office. I have Ms Tan to thank for the wonderful OT because there is a big project coming up, and she needed to rush home after her dog called to say she’s sick.

Maybe I only have myself to blame for getting pushed around. About eight months back, I was getting really desperate because I haven’t been able to score an interview since that faux pas with the ang mo advertising firm. Then I received a call from this company and was asked whether if I can attend an interview in the very same afternoon. Needless to say, I said yes.


Ms Tan: Since you are able to make it for the interview despite the last minute notice, I take it that you are still unemployed?

Me: Yes Mdm.

Ms Tan: I must warn you that in this company, employees are expected to work extra hours without pay.

Me: Yes Mdm.

Ms Tan: I noticed you like to say ‘yes’ a lot. Are you a ‘yes’ man?

Me: (Ponders for a while) Yes Mdm.


Passive is my middle name.

With Love,
Sibeh Sian

    Unexpected post. What if Miss Tan meant the question as a hidden sexual innuendo? You sure as hell will be twirled around her slender fingers and then cruelly flicked off.

    That is not passive lah. That is... "respect" to Ms Tan mah... She should thank you that you gave her face for such insensitive remarks. Other guys would have asked her to read between the lines of their hands, sans thumb and pinky.

    No wonder, you are sibeh sian.

    My "Learn to Say Fuck Off" course is just starting enrollment. Just for you, as pro bono work, a cup of tea at The Vee Tea Room would suffice.

    Please try and practice in your reply. F_C_ OFF! Very Emphatically.

    You asked for it.

    Since you are a "yes" man, i believe u will say yes when i need favours from you? I need a cleaner for my home after the reno. But i will buy u chicken rice for lunch as a form of remuneration =)

    Must play hard to get whether in love or in career... then it will give the impression that u are highly desirable even if it's not true. Understand a not?
    If still dun understand then I think u and Miss Tan may just be the perfect match... n u shld just go after her cos she will be the perfect foil to your passiveness. Good idea right? Think about it.

    Seems like Ms Tan really looking troublw with you wor. You should know better to offend a woman esp your lady superior. So its wiser to be passive. Good job~! =)

    Hey, which Ad agency was that? It's damn hard to get into the big ones right now. Despite the big names, some pay really really bad. It's beyond acceptance man!
