Quotable Quote

“Trees grow upwards and outwards” – uttered by a character called Chairman Lao who rides a mobility scooter to zip across the neighborhood.

When I heard this quote in a local drama sitcom, “Meet The MP”, I thought to myself and laughed.

The issue on hand were 2 squabbling neighbors living in government housing.

One is an elderly lady who encroached on public corridors and lift landing of her unit by creating a jungle like feel.

Her neighbor is an equally elderly gent who tried to outbeat her by hoarding items next to her. His favorite items hoarded were Hello Kitty dolls! *ha ha luckily it was not Garfields.

The area MP was tasked to resolve the conflict. He used this quotation and it worked.

Elderly gent agreed to resolve his hoarding if MP gets Elderly woman to remove the forest.

Hence the quotation taught the MP that the plants needed more space and the solution was to empower the Elderly Lady with greening a community garden and making her the Chairperson.

Happy ending and who was to expect that the two at loggerheads could become friends.

Thursday…..2 more days to weekend as I have to work Saturday and have snarled at Ms Bare Midriff today.

She got my goat! Mathematically challenged Ms Bare Midriff did not understand how payroll is done despite calling self an accountant.

She thinks payroll calculates itelf and that we did not need a software.

Moron! 😈

Meanwhile, I might as well calculate my calories to cheer self up!

Job Titles

I kid you not. I have a fanciful but glorious title.

I used to be a small fry in an ocean but my title was apt and fitting. 

My job was great, boss was even greater and ohhhh…the pay was magnificient coupled with generous benefits. Sadly my boss was ousted by a tyrant.

My lemons from jobs then began.

Today I am in a somewhat dubious title of “Minister Without Portfolio” type status. 

Trust me! This has nothing to do with governmental hoo hah and I assure you our good Ministers Without Portfolio in the Prime Minister’s Office are really doing a great job! I am not in any of those scenarios.

I allude self to this pun of a title as basically I am like the “Jiminy Man” – just take care of everything.

Fish in the tank has no food….call me.

Toilet not working, call me.

Toilet cleanliness, fire safety right down to chairing meetings or pleading for alms to fuel DL’s lifestyle, pray call me.

Self worth? Minion Status.

In DL’s eyes, a useful unto thee slave.

Just give me my shackles and chain me to the iron ball.

I wonder what is next when DL returns. All I know is that the minions like me are down hearted! Sigh!

Tuesday Laughs

Three women die together in an accident and go to heaven.
When they get there, St. Peter says, “We only have one rule here in heaven: don’t step on the ducks!”
So they enter heaven, and sure enough, there are ducks all over the place.
It is almost impossible not to step on a duck, and although they try their best to avoid them, the first woman accidentally steps on one.
Along comes St. Peter with the ugliest man she ever saw.
St. Peter chains them together and says, “Your punishment for stepping on a duck is to spend eternity chained to this ugly man!”
The next day, the second woman accidentally steps on a duck and along comes St. Peter, who doesn’t miss a thing. With him is another extremely ugly man. He chains them together with the same admonishment as for the first woman.
The third woman has observed all this and, not wanting to be chained for all eternity to an ugly man, is very, VERY careful where she steps.
She manages to go months without stepping on any ducks, but one day St. Peter comes up to her with the most handsome man she has ever laid eyes on … very tall, long eyelashes, muscular, and thin.
St. Peter chains them together without saying a word.
The happy woman says, “I wonder what I did to deserve being chained to you for all of eternity?”
The guy says, “I don’t know about you, but I stepped on a duck!”

Choices & How To Choose Wisely

Isn’t It Sad

Isn’t it sad that I have no special genre of music? I like whatever that makes me happy!

Isn’t it sad that I do not have that one special guy in my life? Thankfully, I focus on friends and my inanimate furball Garfield!

Isn’t it sad that I do not have a live pet? Hmm…if I could, I think I could settle for a beagle!

Isn’t it sad that I continuously have bad bosses in my jobs? Must be karma!

Isn’t it sad that I cannot afford to do what I want, how I want and when I want? So much for being independent in life as we live by rules!

Isn’t it sad that I thought I had a chance at the last job interview? It has been 2 weeks and am sure they have appointed a candidate to fill the vacant post.

Isn’t it sad that DL was mean when left leg hurts? I wonder where her humanity, compassion and empathy was?! No wonder DL is a lonely old and bitter soul.

Aah well….at least I have teeth….and I can laugh.
