This & That Including What Ails

My Attitude Towards An Annual Dinner Part 1

on February 13, 2018

I am more sanguine these days. In as long as a year ago, I would be flustered and upset that I am forced to attend events that I dislike for work.

Well, tonight is the so called annual dinner and I am just going through the motion of doing the work so that others can eat and enjoy.

Excited? Nope! 40 lucky draw prizes for 150 people, the odds for me to win anything is rather negligible. I see stacks of Chinese New Year clients sending the office management lovely hamper baskets of goodies! Sadly when I suggested for these to be given out as lucky draw prizes, the answer was a firm “NO”.

It seems Dowager would like to have these hampersshared between selves ie Dowager and the other divine court lords LOL!

Hungry for the dinner? Nope! 3/4 of the menu is not suitable for me as I am catering to Dowager’s palate for fresh prawns, shellfish and what nots!

I cannot wait for 2230 hours to come by so that I can trot off to get home.

I have put self firmly across to Dowager that I am not her delivery lad nor a “van” provider. Dowager thinks she owns my car and my life as a minion to do her bidding. I drew a line to think that it is etched. Enough experiences with past lords that I put my foot down.

In truth, the company does not pay nor give me any car allowance and so, why would I need to use my personal private property to suit her needs. If Old Hag, MC Queen, Ms Admin and Sour Puss were nicer beings, I could do it as a friend. But since they are not, I too, will remain the same.

But in this business, there can be no friendship and I have seen their selfishness.

So, I have learnt to be “selfish” as this bunch of goons do not know Ps and Qs – darn illiterate lot or a poorly brought up bunch.

I will be happy to write a post that reads, “Post Dinner Hilarity” – till then… wish me luck that tonight’s event goes through without much fanfare!
