It's the Crave

I have been eating the same kind of food over and over again lately. It's like I'm pregnant! Is this some form of the Couvade syndrome?

1. Buchi!!! I have been craving these little round things but it seems there's a shortage. Every Chinese restaurant I went to tells me that they ran out of the stuff. Grrr...

2. Selecta Cornetto Hazelnut Ice Cream. I love the stuff as well as the commercial. 

3. Siomai with really hot chili sauce. I so love the warm dumpling with the hellish sauce. Makes me sweat every time!

4. Alberto's Hungarian Pizza. I've been eating this since last week.

5. Hopia in our office pantry. It's just 6 pesos a piece. You dunk it in instant coffee from the vending machine. It's like Oreo but Chinese!

Graduation Day

I just graduated my class yesterday and I must say it was a relief! It was blood, sweat and tears. Starting an account isn't always a walk in the park but it's really fulfilling to work hard for something and (hopefully) reap the rewards. I am and will always be proud of Wave 1 for being a fun and intelligent bunch. They crack me up all the time.

Thank you Wave 1. Being with me for 7 weeks is not always pleasant but they've put up with my sarcasm, my rants and my bloopers. Thank you Nana for the pasta and Joyce for the pics.

Now, main thing is to make sure they do good in Operations. This means going to work on a Sunday. I don't mind as long as they will be performing.

This is gonna be a long week I'm sure but all the laughs will make it lighter. Besides, I have Boracay to look forward to!

Lady Gaga and Beyonce Working in a Call Center

Lady Gaga and Beyonce are call center agents for Convergys. It's a Saturday and they have a shift! They decided not to come to work. Of course, their team lead is 2 agents short. She decided to call them.

Team Lead: Hey Gaga and Beyonce! You two should be taking calls. I'll tag you as NCNS!

Gaga: Not that I don't like you. I'm just at a party and I am sick and tired of my phone r-ringing.

Beyonce: Sometimes I feel like I live in Grand Central Station. Tonight I'm not takin' no calls 'cuz I'll be dancin'. Cuz I'll be dancin'. Cuz I'll be dancin'.Tonight I'm not takin' no calls cuz I'll be dancin'


The Ideal Resignation Letter

Dear Mr. Boss:

I'm thrilled to inform you that I'm resigning.

I have been waiting for what seems like forever to inform you that I’m resigning. I’ve hated worked for the company since the day I was hired. I don’t like the work, I don’t like my fellow employees, and I don’t like you.

I am tendering my resignation effective immediately and I’m heading for the open road. I bought a Harley and a leather jacket and my girlfriend, Denise, is coming along. It was a little tough to find a jacket to fit her, but we managed.

I know you would like me to help you with a transition, but I won’t. Have fun figuring out the files on my computer. I can’t even figure them out most of the time.

Oh, speaking of computers, you’ll need to figure out the passwords to all our online resources. I forgot to keep a list of them, so have fun with that.

I’m sure you’d like to have a going away party for me. However, I’m not interested in the stale cookies and nasty punch that constitutes saying goodbye at this company.

Don’t worry about writing me a reference, even though I’m sure you’d be glad to recommend my work. I don’t need or want one. I don’t need references where I’m heading. So, consider our bridges burnt.

See ya,

Happy To Be Gone
