I feel like swearing

Bapak aku nak kawin lagi.  My sisters told me about it earlier, but I’m not too bothered about it.  And I’ll be away for work on his wedding day so didn’t think much of it.

However, I’m quite pissed off right now after finding out how he had asked the girls to get my mum’s copy of their divorce certificate because he doesn’t have his.  Bloody hell.  For a PhD candidate, you’re pretty stupid, aren’t you?

Insensitive prick.  Excuse my language, but I felt that was appropriate for the man who has continued to disappoint whenever he attempts to get us involved in his life.  Or maybe it’s just me.  I don’t think so.

I am okay with him out of the picture.  I just don’t like it when he causes problems for my sisters, who still maintain some sort of communication with him, or my mum, who doesn’t.  I thought I’m done caring about what he does.  I think I am but it rankles me when he hurts my mum or my sisters.  Aku cakap ramai lelaki bangang, marah.

Work fatigue

You have the secretary general who refuses to take down minutes of meeting when his deputy is not around.  “Tak pa, biar setiausaha eksekutif yang ambil minit.” So I have to do YOUR job on top of mine?  Really, dude.

You get the annoying clown who says he’ll do everything but don’t, who only reads the top most message on a thread and then ask what’s it about, who asks repeatedly for a document to be re-sent because the attachment is corrupted when everyone else had not problem opening it.

You get people from another association asking you to do work for them.  Banyak la cantik.

You get the smarty pants who will ask all the so-called smart questions, which have been addressed long before.  Orang penat buat minit, kau tak baca.

When you work with PEOPLE, you get all sorts.  I think I have OD’ed on people this year.  Need. to. escape.

I have informed the boss that I won’t be renewing my (non-existent) contract when it ends in December.  Dah tak larat.

 

As long as I’m laughing with you

You can’t choose the family you’re born into… the past week has been a constant reminder of that saying. I saw the good and the bad (as well as the hideous!!) sides to being around the extended family and I guess it just goes to show (yet again) that no one’s perfect and that you really can’t guess what’s inside one’s heart and mind based on external appearance.

Pakailah minyak wangi mahal-mahal pun, dengan beg tangan buatan Itali dan kereta mewah dari Jerman. Kalau hati tu busuk, mesti ada terlepas jugak bau tu!

Urghhh

I have a feeling that it’s gonna be a long, BLEARGHHH Monday.

Idiots are everywhere

I feel like a rant.

You know how words can hurt people? Well a silly and foolish makcik (she is, even though she’s my age) made assumptions and told Davie that the stuff she’s doing is to compensate the fact that she is still single and living on her own.

Bloody hell. If you don’t have anything good to say, just shut your trap, will you.

It is so true that we are capable of doing both good and bad things (to paraphrase Mr. Anderson Cooper). For that makcik, she helps out with the alumni but at the same time thinks trying to fulfill a dying kid’s wish of meeting his favourite tv uncle is not Islamic enough and shouldn’t be encouraged. I know I can be a lousy person and episodes like this serve as a reminder for me to keep working at being a better human being. That’s hard to do but hey, I know from the start that it’s a never ending journey anyway so I should just keep at it while I still can.

Apart from the comments, it was maddening to see how the makcik just assumes that singletons have no life and need to do volunteer work to be fulfilled. Idiot.

Firstly, volunteer work for fulfillment? Young, single people can surely think of so many better things to do than volunteering with sick kids. Secondly, while I don’t have much of a life, I am very grateful for the one I have now sebab aku tak kacau orang, or at least, try not to. Thirdly, not everyone has an agenda. Some people just want to do good and that is never an easy thing to do because of other people, who sit on their cushioned bottoms and pass judgement all day.

Right. I’m done. For now.
