Ants!!

Monday, November 27th, 2006

Ants! Red ants everywhere!!! Brrrr…. I hate them when they mess in unnecessarily and in the wrong place. Yesterday, it was the drop which overflow. They managed to inch in my twelve o’clock loaf…They were in and outside the crust. In a moment of despair, i thought of throwing the bread away, then decided to remove the ants and grill the bread. I usually don’t fancy grilled bread but yesterday it was an exception.

Does the invasion preclude a sign of heavy rains or a major catastrophy?? Does someone know how to read signs???

Downsizing!

Monday, November 13th, 2006

Today another colleague resigned from his work. In fact he was working as white collar, but suffered from mental problems lately. He was admitted to Brown Sequard Hospital and got discharged afterwards. He resumed work one week later, but his behaviour is such that he still had some set backs.

Last week, while he was reversing a single cab, he hit another single cab. He yelled “what is this cab doing here?” They are all company cars and all what he had to do is to look out for their positions. Today, he resigned. Do not know whether boss sacked him, probably so because he is very good at using reverse psychology.

There are more resignations and sacking this year than last. Probably at this stage of the competition, the company is downsizing, leaving non performers out of the game.  Who’s next?
