Early Morning Irritation

Image
I know it's too early to be annoyed or irked by other people in the workplace, but can you blame me?!

I'm not a perfectionist or anything but it just, well, took me aback when someone from the Concierge blurted out something I didn't quite like to hear this early.

To give you a background, I availed of my employee benefit and checked into the hotel - well, actually, my uncle was the one to use the room. So anyway, I've already done checking-in, and was a bit annoyed already because the darn Front Office Gal almost blew my cover with the payment thing. {This part I won't share anymore. Nyehehe} I turned around and asked ...

the Concierge Supervisor if there was anyone who he can ask to help us with the luggage. One bell service guy appeared out of nowhere, thank God, but then this grumpy Concierge Supervisor who we'll name as Wendell, blurted out "Dong, tabangi sa ni sila Dong kay kutihan raba kaayo ni..." ["Dong, help these people first 'coz the…

3-Minute Management Course

Image
Most of the time, we encounter managers, CEOs, even Presidents who do not know how to manage their people, resources, or their very own homes.

It's a good thing I checked my email today, it offered a solution short and quick enough yet frankly "dropped" the idea right on my lap. The 3-MInute Management Course.

{That is, if you can finish reading it and understand it also all within the span of three minutes! :) }


Lesson One:

An eagle was sitting on a tree resting, doing nothing. A small rabbit
saw the eagle and asked him, "Can I also sit like you and do nothing?"

The eagle answered: "Sure, why not." So, the rabbit sat on the ground
below the eagle and rested. All of a sudden, a fox appeared, jumped on
the rabbit and ate it.


Management Lesson:

To be sitting and doing nothing, you must be sitting very, very high up.

I Just Called to Say...

Image
"I just called to say... I love you..."

A very famous song sung by Stevie Wonder. This is just what some people would like to do, especially overseas contract workers who would just love to call their families every once in a while to keep up with updates, to ask how are the kids, to say 'I love you' to their wives/husbands, ask whether grandma has taken her medication? Has junior taken his vitamins? Has the dog given us puppies yet?

Unfortunately, calling abroad is just a cent too expensive. I think this site can help - http://www.therichcom.com, a site which offers prepaid phonecards for calls around the world with cheap rates. Customers can use the web site to search for best deals for calls from United States to anywhere in the world. This is especially useful for our relatives now located or assigned in the US. Or our former classmates that have wandered abroad and landed somewhere in Uncle Sam's land.

The site itself is quite user-friendly, although I think th…

NASA Hits on a 13-Year-Old

A 13-year-old German boy recalculates the possibility of an asteroid hitting Earth and bthen alerts NASA about it. As the story goes, NASA acknowledges that he was right.

Right?
Wrong.
{read the rest below}

NASA already made a press release disputing the boy's calculations and denying that they agreed on his calculations of the 1-in-450 chances of the asteriod Apophis hitting the earth in April 2029 when it approaches earth. But NASA strongly denies any contact or correspondence with the boy and also emphasizes the very low probability (1 in 45,000) of an Earth impact by the asteroid Apophis in 2036.

Forgetting Birthdays - A Mortal Sin

I saw it in his eyes, he was sad. Not because I didn't give him a gift, not because we didn't do something really special, but because his own family didn't seem to remember. It was even made worse when my own mom called him to greet and yet his own mother never did.

I was also a little disheartened at how something so trivial at times be so important to some. This time I was given another glimpse at how fragile he really was. He was hurt. Even his relatively closest brother didn't remember.

Sometimes we neglect to think of how these little things affect other people. There are times that we think that it's ok to forget these kind of things - just a way of getting even for them not remembering you own. But personally, I think that only works for acquaintances, co-workers you seldom see, bosses who are too high-up-there to even think about things like birthdays - but for close friends, cliques, family members, even your partners, I think forgetting birthdays is a mort…

SM: Indifferent About Moldy Chocolates

Image
I already received two copies of this email - the incident when a man bought chocolates from SM Supermarket and the thing had molds! The annoying thing was that the supervisor and attendants of SM were not very good with pretending they were concerned. They just stood there like it was very common. Well, maybe it is a COMMON THING FOR SM TO RECEIVE CUSTOMER COMPLAINTS REGARDING THE THINGS, ESPECIALLY FOOD ITEMS, THAT THEY SELL. They even said that they would have to talk to their supplier to resolve the issue. But I was thinking, don't they have some sort of quality control that monitors and checks the expiry dates of the things they receive from their suppliers?! Isn't that just common sense for such a big company like SM? Wake up and smell the molds!!!!

Read on below to know the details straight from the person who bought the moldy chocolate. I got these from the email that's circulating. I provided translations for my other readers.. ;)
