This & That Including What Ails

All About Expo Events

on July 30, 2016

My heart missed several beats today as I had planned to take my parents on a drive to have lunch and then to Expo hall at Changi in the east to “shop”

Before I could extricate self from home, 15 messages came through whats app.

Ms Tripod was told by me to get her welders to stop welding in an area with flammable wood cabinets.Safety risks I said!! Fire!!

15 messages later, the site was cleared ๐Ÿ˜“phew!!

Onward ho to my planned outing….or so I thought! Think again…

I thought I could drive in peace to my parents place to get them for lunch.

Midway, text messages came through from Ms Marketer.

She is a heavy chain smoker and quite a difficult person. She is in her late 30s and thinks she is rather mature!

However I am immature๐Ÿ˜‰ – I refuse to be mature…

She cannot accept that one of her part timer had a family emergency! Hence this person could not show up for a trade show today. How can one prevent a family emergency.

She added that another threatened her not to show up for work tomorrow too.

Sheesh!! 2 days back her other 2 part timers wanted to walk out on her as her manner of managing them was unacceptable by the part timers.

I had brought peace to these 2 and they stayed on. They said they stayed because of me. I felt happy!

I guess it is how you treat people. If you treat people badly, they will not reciprocate with niceties!

So texting whilst driving was not wise but I had to put out this fire. I told her I would get to the trade show later.

Meanwhile another call comes in. 

Someone is at a location 20 minutes from where I am but without keys!! Aaargh!!

I drove like hell’s angels to pick up my folks and dashed off to the location to pass them the spare set of keys!! Phew…thank goodness I had a spare key with me.๐Ÿ˜ค

Finally..brought mum and dad to Newton Circus for a popular mince pork noodles.

Touted as a good bowl of noodles, mum and dad chowed down whilst I furiously tapped on my android to resolve manpower issues.

Thankfully Mr Bucktooth was in the ball in the office and he could back me up by getting uniforms to the trade show.

He will meet me there. Houston….we have a plan!

Thankfully my parents were a good sport and went with me for the trade show.

Mum was concerned I had no time to chow down but I had no choice. 

Ms Marketer was hitting me left right with messages.

Like ping pong, I served back replies!

Finally I got to the trade show…all is calm…seriously a small hiccup was made into as if like Hiroshima’s detonation of a nuclear bomb!!

I need a shot of vodka really……but if only I drank!! Lol! I settled for a glass of lemon juice hand pressed!๐Ÿ˜‚
