Sleepless night!

Wednesday, December 1st, 2010

Am looking like a zombie. Did not sleep well last time. It was damned humid and hot. On top of that, the tropical visitors visited me and it was very annoying hearing their buzzing sound. Just when sleep finally came in, it was high time to get up to work. So if someone at work tries to pick up on me, s/he going to get it…

Dear viewers,

Another month has elapsed. We are 3 months nearing the end of the year. How time really flies! This month no public holidays… So desert ahead! For those who still have leaves, enjoy them. But for unfortunates, please bear this month with a pinch of salt, lemon and some 0.05% drinks. And for those still looking for a job, keep it on, until you are settled and be in the same situation as your host :p

After some drizzles, the sun has finally come out. This means time to wake up and get ready for work. Wake up bunch of lazy goers!!! It’s Friday today!!!! Ok for those who work tomorrow, work hard. Sunday will come in a dash. Woahhhhhhhahaha!!! Ok better get going. Enjoy yr day, hopefully will be my case 🙂 (touch wood)

Long wkend!

Greetings everyone! So how was your weekend? Many of us must have enjoyed their long weekend especially those who do not work on Saturdays. Some companies even decided to resume work on Wednesday given Tuesday is a public holiday. I think schools as well are given a day off (mid term?).  Well guess what?? My boss and his wife did the same today. They made a bridge (fer pont in creole). So while asses are working, Mr and Mrs are sunbathing in a nice little resort. And what really sucks is Mrs phoned to enquire whether any employee has fer pont… Comme koi l’exemple vient d’en haut… No holidays in the coming month. So will begin the long desert walk. Must feed on water and air.

When will you resume work?

Saturday, December 12th, 2009

When asked whether it would be ok to resume work on the 4th January 2010, one manager shouted that should work resume on that day, he would submit his resignation immediately. Now that is called spoilness.  He has been working for 15 years with the same employer and is more equal than others. There are no retaliations against him when he damaged company cars in accidents. Should a mere mark appear on a car, you would normally get reprimanded, pay for the damage or even get fired should you recur.  Well i guess such is life. So when will you resume work?

National pay council!

Saturday, May 16th, 2009

The National Pay Council met yesterday to decide on the compensation 2009 for workers. Hence it has been decided that for workers claiming salary of:

up to 3,800: increase of 5.1%

3,801-12,000 :increase of rs 200

12,001 above: no increase

As usual, there has been an agreement to disagree between syndicats and the federation of employers. BTW the grand argentier will be delivering his budget speech on the 22nd May 2009. There will be two speeches this year, the other end of the year.

Should i or should not i?

Monday, March 2nd, 2009

Today morning my boss came to ask me whether the phone works well. Damnn it!!! What the fuck is he talking about? I knew that a line on the PABX did not work. So i replied that such line does not work. He was obviously waiting for another reply. He was querying about my mobile phone,whose sim card is provided and paid by the company. So i replied positively. He continued on reprimanding me that he phoned me in the morning and that i did not reply. To which i shrugged my shoulder. Should i always take the phone with me wherever i go even in the toilet??? Seeing that i “avoye li f..” he left without saying another word..  I then started to harass him by visiting his office 3 times in a row in the morning. Obviously he was busy listening to the ballot polls on his pc. I kept on breaking his rhythm (cheques to sign, giving him quotations and giving him feedback about a statement he gave me one week ago and re cheques to sign again) until it was time for lunch. All the day round, he had been ear stuck to the polls, leaving his office only for natural urges and a meeting.

He did not even vote in the partial. Wonder why he is so interested?? Red fan???

Printing for dummies!

Monday, September 1st, 2008

It was so funny what happened today. The boss’ wife could not get a printout from her newly bought desk jet. She has been planning her sister’s wedding since one month and it is now that she is printing menu cards or programme 4 days prior to the great day. Since she could not print from her printer, she sent the job to my printer. The hardcopy was pale. She used to print her son’s colloriage and puzzle games, and wedding gowns pictures on my printer. No surprise the toner got low. She asked me to change the toner, to which i replied i do not have a new one. I urged her to get  a technician to solve her printing problem.

The technician could not make it and she again called me to the rescue. I responded annoyed since i got loads of work to do, and so reluctantly asked for the printer manual, checked the ink cartridge, switched on and off the printer, and finally got to the printer manager to kill all pending print jobs. I finally called a test page. Great was my surprise to see that the printer cable was not connected to her laptop!!! When i made the remark to her, she replied who disconnected the cable. Her brother was there and he replied who else other than her could disconnect the cable when she brought the laptop back home.

Oh dear! Ki mon faire pou merite sa??? Si li ti blonde mo ti pou compran, enfin ena exception.
