The UN-perks of staying in the office in between Xmas and New Year


I haven’t been posting rants for a long time now and that’s surreal considering these days I’ve been extremely giddy.

Anyway, the cons of staying in the office during the Christmas break are the compilation of other people’s work load (I had a dream of slacking out this holiday season).

Forms should be clear. When it’s not, all hell will break loose. No one wants to work during the holidays so if you’re going to make someone work, you have to dish out every detail you need to dish out.

I remember a story from my recent memory (dating back from my other work). I was of course, the star, and there are other protagonists whose lives I don’t want to highlight.

Someone pissed me off because… receiving a form of three phrases that doesn’t have any sense is well… nonsense. When I asked what the form was all about, this person talked like I was a freaking ignorant. Anyway, I won’t go into details but this tested my patience and it made me go ballistic!

But I don’t fight.

Nope.

I get even.

I remember when I was doing my group thesis and this group mate began telling us to our proctor because “we weren’t letting her join the fun” (let’s think of her as Rudolph and us the other reindeer). I remember seriously shouting pissed outside UST’s AB lobby and puffing smoke towards the internet shop I used to play like I am a character in Reservoir Dogs because I can’t believe a person that usually looks after her boyfriend than the thesis would rat us like that! In the end, we accomplished a perfect thesis with her not knowing that I made her do all the slave work (typing, researching, photo copying, going errand) as the rest of the group thought and planned for the whole thing.

Yes, I am still happy that I planned the whole swerve.

Fast track almost five later (I am that old). I looked at the materials and found that there wasn’t a clear thought in them. I listed every detail I found confusing and went to our heads to tell my discomforts which prompted a sudden meeting with the clients. When I saw they have no definite plans (and I don’t have a clue why) I insisted to make them like the thoughts I am giving them. Mind you I am still doing work but I am corrupting their minds to give me work that I wanted to do.

And with this, I made myself look smart while that person that pissed me off was basically disregarded.

This is me not caring

So what’s the relevance of this rant?

Well, there is no rant per se because I have the ability to adjust to the situation and I am capable to do things if I set my mind to it but THE ONLY REASON I GO TO WORK IN BETWEEN CHRISTMAS AND NEW YEAR IS FOR ME TO HAVE AIRCON AND ENDLESS SURFING AFTER I STROLLED AND WASTE MY MONEY OVER TRIVIAL THINGS FROM MALLS! IF I SEE VERY HARD WORK IN MY DESK EXPECT ANGUISH FOR TESTING MY PATIENCE!!!

Ehem…

My serious “fuck the world” mentality pops out whenever I feel like proper rationale deals zero damage to one person’s cranium. You’ll love my wimpy, girly fun side but if I know I’m right and I’m pissed off, I’ll see to it that people realize my value by hating their selves. If I see work in my desk I swear, I will use all of my vacation leave during the first weeks of 2010! *

(* this depends on the load of work I would encounter)

Game over.

PS: Syet… job orders are coming!!!
