The long and short about The Visit Part II



Being the professional subordinate I am, I took great pains to prepare for Ms Tan’s visit.

I cleaned up my room and perfumed the toilet. I unplugged my external hard disk, which is full of art films. I even changed into a fresh pair of underwear, just in case the unthinkable happens.

The above efforts may not seem much, but you are talking about a man who has been rushing in and out of the loo over the past two days.

I then spent the next few hours waiting, waiting, and waiting. I couldn’t bear it any longer when the clock struck eight.


Me: Hello eh. . . . Ms Tan?

Me: I was wondering if you are coming, haha. . . .

Ms Tan: I can’t make it. I’m having a very important meeting with a very important client right now.

Ms Tan: But I’ve emailed you some reports to correct. Make sure they are done by Monday.

Me: Yes Mdm.


I would like to think it’s just my imagination, but I swear I heard the words ‘Dear NTUC shoppers’ in the background before she hung up.

I pray fervently that she gets piles.

With Love,
Sibeh Sian

P.S. I had a hard time explaining to my mum why I had a change of underwear.

    Putting aeroplane is a very bad habit. Leaving you "high" and "dry" is so much worse! Hahaha.

    Tell your mum you're artistic, and people in the art films change underwear regularly.

    Oh and in the mean while finish up your reports before watching the films leh. Happy office boys meet deadlines.

    Sian, why does ur mum check on how often u change ur underwear? Do u not change ur underwear everyday? Does ur mum also inspect ur soiled underwears for signs of spillage? Heh

    To All Who Asked Why My Mum Asked About My Underwear: My mum does the laundry. I usually only have a one change of underwear a day, but had two that day because being the hygienic person I am, I had another change when I bathed at night.

    You all would not want to hear the reason I gave her though. Heh.

    Spinnee: Indeed, I am very relieved. Goodness know what she could have done to my nubile and virginal body if she came. Shudders.

    TLEM: Not disappointed, just sibeh sian because of the extra work. I'm wondering if this is against manpower laws or anything, making me work when I'm sick :(

    Lakeside Girl: Oh trust me, I have very low expectations usually :)

    Zhe Bin: I was very dry, though not very high, haha.... And completed the reports already. Yeah!

    Adrenaline: Explained in previous comment :)

    Grace: Ditto. And the two was in separate sentences :D!

    LMG: Ditto :)

    Sunflower: Ditto ditto :)

    Mairameiti: Aiyah, because she told me she will be coming what....

    Green Ogre: If that's the case, I hope she will not be so sweet in the future. Heh.

    Huh... I was hoping to read about how traumatic the visit was, like what Ms Tan did to ur 'nubile and virginal' body. Damn!

Your son already 27, goin 28 liao leh, you this kind of thing also must question me?! You izzit see my xiao didi too big, then must feel fresh enough? Walao, I don't know where to put my face liao lah?!' Hehe.
