Been some time since I last blogged.
The job at Parc Lumiere really drains all the energy out of me every single day. For some reason, I've become the unofficial IC of the backend office, along with Shalynn and the two of us are in "constant demand" by the agents, by the options counter people, by the frontdesk receptionists, by the directors, by EVERYONE. I really don't know whether to be honoured or to feel unlucky...
After clocking in 5 full shifts and 1 half shift including 12 and 13 hour shifts last Saturday and Sunday respectively, I finally got my off day today. Or technically speaking, yesterday. On thursday after work, I travelled all the way down to AMK Hub simply because I had the urge to taiko and ended spending the entire day with Dear, Yuu and XH there. Reached home yesterday morning 5am. Funnily, my mom didn't scream at me. Phew. xD Woke up at 1pm, lunched and bitched about my relatives with my mom and sis and then went down to Yishun to accompany Dear to dye his hair.
Let me sidetrack a little here: Jean Yip is a company that CHEATS THEIR CUSTOMERS' MONEY~!!! And its not slander okay. Before we went in, we asked them how much it would cost to cut and dye and the person quoted us $68. Already abit expensive, but I persuaded Dear to just go ahead with it. The person was very nice and polite; good service and everything. The works. He even very nicely did some hair spa thingy for Dear, saying that it's good for the scalp and will protect the hair. ALL THE WHILE NOT SAYING ANYTHING ABOUT ADDITIONAL COSTS INVOLVED. Then when we went to pay, we were billed a whopping $108. WHAT THE BLOODY FUCK. How can they just charge us WITHOUT TELLING US? Its not about the money, its about the principle. Seriously. WHAT THE NBCB IS THIS MAN?!??!?! SO DAMN PISSED OFF.
Anyway, after that Dear and I met up with Yuu, had dinner at Ishi Mura and then headed off to DTE to taiko and ended up staying at the arcade till midnight. Was feeling a little frustrated because I couldn't win at computer mahjong and then my taiko-ing somehow sucked more than normal. Went for supper at McDonalds after that, all the while disturbing Sky, who was there working the night shift. Lol. I think the manager looked quite pissed with us but we didn't give a damn. xD
Back to work tomorrow. Half of me looks forward to going back while the other half can't wait for the next break. LOL.
And speaking about work, I simply have to rant about my childish colleagues. 20 year old polytechnic graduates and going about looking for jobs together. I mean, I've got no problem with that, but you really don't have to stick together like super glue lah. That's what PRIMARY SCHOOL kids do okay? Its like, simple things like asking them whether they want to work the next day also have to wait for them to call and sms for half the day before they can finally give a definite answer. WTF. And that day during work, they just disappeared for close to half an hour and Shalynn and I had to cover their asses when the bosses asked us where they were. Irresponsibility. I hate people like that.
As time passes, I'm getting to see society and the humans in it much more clearly than I used to. What was once a sheltered world full of beautiful flowers has become an ugly garden with thorns hidden in the flowers. I don't know to be sad that the world is actually like this, or to be glad that I am able to distinguish the thorns and protect myself.
I still don't understand how people can be so fake, but I have started to understand why people do it. There are still many many things about society and its inhabitants that I do not understand; things I won't care to elaborate in case I offend others, but seriously, sometimes things that are common sense to me just doesn't seem to be the case for others. Is it because they are too sheltered in their world, or is it because they just have not grown up in their minds?
