The long and short about Why I Feel Like Strangling My Boss At Times



I’ve noticed a very disturbing pattern. When I blogged about Sushi Eating Friend, you guys tried persuading me to go after her. When I blogged about Adrenaline, you guys were convinced that we can be an item, even though she is getting married this coming December. Then I blogged about Nerd, and you guys suggested we go ‘broke-back’ together.

I am thus very worried because today, I am going to blog about my Boss.

Now I have to state here that I respect my Boss a lot. He is making big money despite having only a PSLE cert, and although vulgar, has proved on many situations that he can be a very caring and generous boss. What I can’t stand however, is that he loves to ask very, very intellectually challenging questions at times. Here are a few samples:


Situation #01:
When his handphone started ringing in the middle of our meeting:
Intellectually Challenging Question #01:
“Why is my handphone ringing?” In a very angry, accusing tone directed at me.

Situation #02:
When I called him regarding a very urgent business situation:
Intellectually Challenging Question #02:
“Why did you call me while I’m peeing?” In a very angry, accusing tone directed at me.

Situation #03:
When he came in late for work the other day:
Intellectually Challenging Question #03:
“Why did my car break down?” In a very angry, accusing tone directed at me.

Situation #04:
When he read on the papers that oil prices climbed again :
Intellectually Challenging Question #04:
“Why did the oil prices climbed again?” In a very angry, accusing tone directed at me.


I think my Boss don’t really like me very much.

With Love,
Sibeh Sian

    For question No. 2, tell him 'cause you wish to listen to the trinkles of his pee that reminds you of waterfall to sooth your mind such that you can handle the urgent business situation with professionalism and flair.

    Sian you know why we encourage you to after SEF. And we find you and Adrenaline can be an item, even though she is getting married this coming December. And Nerd, we go ‘broke-back’ together.

    因为你在导, 我们在帮你演吗!

    真是好心没好报!

    You ah, you buay zi dong one. He always point his questions towards you because he think you is some great guru of knowledge that choose to da zhuo at his company instead of high mountain. You is asset! Or else why everything also ask you?

    i'm sorry to tell you this sian, but there might be a possibility that you have a "kiam pak bin", that's why he unloads everything negative on you.

    Aiya, I think he felt that he will look stuoid if he talk to himeslf so he just look at you.
    I doubt if he expect you to answer the question.

    Answers:

    1) Because some idiot is calling you? And yes, I can safely surmise the caller is an idiot because only an idiot would bother to call you.

    2) Because I am an idiot.

    3) Because you're the idiot driving it. Mercedes doesn't mean unbreakable. I think it's some girl's name.

    4) Because there are more people driving a Mercedes than dinosaurs remains left. I think more dinosaurs should have died.
    Should I fling myself into some bog so that I can become fuel 5 million years later?

    I'm just having a bad day.

    Maybe these are secret question that holds the key to your next pay raise/promotion? If you can answer those questions intelligently without insulting your boss, he may see u fit to be his right-hand man?

    Maybe it's because you are always seen carefree and crackin jokes to make others laugh. So he probably took it for granted you won't be pissed/disturbed when he directs his anger at you? Allow him to see the other side of you.

    It's your face lah. Why else would we blame everything on u when we hang out??

    I mean, it's your fault if we can't decide where to eat. It's also your fault if we have to go home earlier than 2am. It's your fault that Yang is irritating. It's so your fault too when we want to beat u up.

    So confirm, it's your face right?

    Sian, who is Yang? Is he one of ur poly friends? Is he a blogger? Is he as handsome as u?

     
  • At Tuesday, July 18, 2006 8:07:00 PM, Blogger Sibeh Sian said…

    Adrenaline: We all can't decide what to eat because I offered too many wonderful suggestions; we all have to go home earlier than 2am because my mother say it's good to go home early; and Yang is irritating because, eh, he is irritating. Haha.

    JasChoc: Then he shows his 'liking' in a very, very mysterious way. Heh.

    LMG: Yup, he is one of our poly friends! He is very hamsen, but not as hamsen as me. Haha.
