The long and short about I Am Very Proud Of My Colleagues



I admit I don’t enjoy my work very much, but my faith in the company was given a huge boost over the weekend.

I was happily watching 大長今 on Channel 8 last Saturday night, when I received a nasty call from Ms Tan to go back to the office to rectify some screw-ups. I was very sad because I had to bid 長今 goodbye, and because I spent a good $9.40 on the blardy cab fare.

Just when I was feeling lousy, I was rewarded by the sight of the New Colleague when I reached the office. I think she was back to correct the screw-up too because she was sweaty and her hair was dishevelled. Before I could say my hello, I was even more surprised when I saw my Boss behind her!

My Boss asked what I was doing in the office on a Saturday night, so I told him about the screw-up that needed correcting. He gave me a pad on the back and smilingly said that was what he and New Colleague were back for too. The two then left hurriedly, probably because Boss didn’t want to miss 大長今 on TV.

Even though I was a bit upset at having to work on a Saturday night, I felt very happy because I know my Boss and New Colleague were just as committed to work as I was. Before he left, my Boss even told me not to tell the others in the office that he was in the office, because he did not want to pressure those who were not doing Saturday night overtime. This was a side of him I’ve never seen, and I was really impressed by his professional working ethics.

I am very happy that I have such a wonderful Boss :)


With Love,
Sibeh “Lorenzo” Sian

    must be very hard job, but you were right in praising your go-ho-lang-gan boss and sexy new colleague(SNC) on a saturday night. so hardworking and so humble too. humility and hardwork are the path to heaven in any religion!

    next time ask if your SNC needs any help in her over-time. As suggested by Tstar, you can also help out with Ms. Tan on OT as well! it is often nice to be nice with your superior and work colleagues.

    Ask your boss to compensate you for the bus fare. Sure okay one.

    And then you can wink and ask him is he inviting the office staff to his house on Chinese New Year?

    ??!!! What's so secretive about boss coming back to office? Mine returns all the time and the whole platoon of kids arrive too! We see diapers in the waste paper basket also!

    u should learn from your boss and stay later after office hours. maybe next time it'd be you who's all sweaty instead of the new colleague.

    =)

    Thinking about big career turn?

    You should write a drama script. Will certainly be bought by mediacorp for mon-fri 9 pm slot on channel 8.

    If Sibeh Lorenzo sian write drama script, I promise I'd either
    1) guest appearance
    2) stick my butt on sofa every night
    or download using mob tv so i can wept & sweat & marvels at your great work.

    This is really my way of showing support sia! :D

    Once you can overcome the smell, you will get to lose your virgin-at-28 status. Next time your SNC smells like that, ask her to show you what work she does with the boss so you can suck him. I mean suck up to him.

    I'm not sure which is funnier - your blog entry or the comments left here by some who clearly didn't get it.

    Tee hee hee.
