This & That Including What Ails

And So The Story Goes #47

on December 4, 2016

It was only polite that I told Mr EX the outcome of my interview with Dragon Lady. He was my “broker” for this job after he learnt that I had gone for round 3.

This sounds like an MMA ring fight. For title bout win, I must jostle 8 rounds for knock out I guess.

So, whilst Dragon Lady asked me to take a walk through her land, I sneaked a text message to Mr EX at 2 hour mark into the interview.

ME

“Am still with Dragon Lady. Up to heaven’s will as she is not prepared to offer me the job just yet!”

MR EX

“I’ll sell my body to her so as to get her to give you the job!”

NOTE1

LOL! So like Mr EX to be a huge drama king! He lent me some laughs to diffuse the tension in me as I continued on in my interview.

But I could not reply as my interview was still ongoing!

As I walked through, I saw a lake and a cycling path. 

Dragon Lady had a row of quaint F&B outlets being built, facing this waterway.

Dragon Lady is in the business of “goodness”. 

As I stared into the open space, it rom was soothing as it is so different from retail – tranquil and with the sun, trees and mother earth.

Finally when my 3 hour interview ended, I replied him.

ME

“PUHHHLEEESE! You will probably fall asleep with her long windedness!”

MR EX

“YA! To sell you to her, I had to listen to her repeat word for word your interview with her the last time”

ME

“Thank you. I know your efforts and I will not let you down”

MR EX

“Hmm She is not the most decisive lady. Why would she need both CEO and COO?”

ME

“I offered her to take on both roles but she supports me with a middle manager. I even suggested to her to be the CEO and COO to save her cost.

Aah well, I also applied to another company. This one is better as near where I live. I could walk to work.

A lady from that company called to ask me if I was a Christian.”

MR EX

“I know the head honcho there.This entity is rich”

NOTE2

I could almost hear Mr EX squeal in excitement. 

But I was in spiritual limbo. Stamped a Catholic. But I was reading tenets of Buddhism to fully understand or trying to understand meaning of my life.

MR EX

“But you changing sutras….”

ME

“Church is in one’s heart. Christian values or Buddhist values all teach good things. I am stamped a Catholic and so technically I am Christian”

MR EX

“Commercialism?”

ME

“Practicalism…more accurate as I am realistically seeking a job.”

NOTE3

Ha ha! My sister feels this latter Christian group may be more upright in morals and values. To her, I will not be verbally abused as these are God fearing people.

MR EX

“I will try and talk to head honcho there. I gotta now.”

And so the story goes….he is off to his next meeting. But like a kid, he was as excited as I, the job seeker to know Dragon Lady’s outcome and now this potential Christian employer.

😊I am grateful Mr EX is standing by me through this tough time.
