This & That Including What Ails

So…..It’s Saturday

on January 31, 2015

I am having a lazy Saturday, lolling on the cool marble flooring of my pigeon hole.

Yup, it is a scorcher today with temperatures at 33 degrees Celcius.

Fan is whirring and Garfield is happily beside me, rather “dead” with his frozen smile! I assure you, I did not “murder” Garfield. He is inanimate. Just the way I like it πŸ˜‰

Laundry was done last evening and this morning I managed to get a load of ironing done.

The news is dreadful as I sat over my newspapers with coffee and toast.

Jobless rates are up. Sigh…I know…I am one of the digits. Drats! I have hit famine again as those many interviews I went yielded no results of second interviews. It is the employers’ market I reminded self. But the POSITIVE ME wants to believe I will be offered a job next week πŸ˜‰

To be out of job over the festive season is a terrible thing for anyone to go through and I pray for employers not to be mean Scrooges to chop or axe or the politer (there is really to nice term to sugar coat the same effect) term of retrenching anyone at this time.

But honestly what do businesses care?!

MNCs are fairer in compensating fully to affected staff but NOT SMEs.

The SME I previously was at, felt it was better to cheat employees of their due bonuses by removing it and getting rid of them.

Had these affected personnel been more litigious, it would have been fun to see Scorpion King being taken to task. Still I feel he will meet his downfall one fine day….when his karma is due!

More news….after digressing to the jobless situation :-D…..

Sadly an unemployed man of 7 years, living off his wife had enough of her beration that he stabbed her to death, slashed the maid who managed to escape after she tried to break up the fight, before stabbing self to death.

Before he died he emailed to government authorities of his reasons for killing and posted on Facebook!

The wrong usage of social media….the two deceased left behind a son.

Joblessness can drive one to to this state of despair. Sad 😦

Like any jobless person…I can empathise but what can one do if one has tried very hard to apply for jobs but get no offers.

Regardless of how experienced one may be or educated, undoubtedly, one needs Lady Luck!

Oh Lady Luck….calling Lady Luck…wherefore art thou?
