Stiff neck

Wondering why am I having a stiff neck now.

Is it because of the car accident yesterday?
Is it because of the RT training yesterday morning?
Or is it because I didn’t sleep well last night?

Still wondering…..

Car Accident

A SBS double deck bus kiss my backside.

Then I ganna forced to kiss someone backside.

And he also ganna push to kiss someone else backside.

In short, 3 car and 1 bus in 1 accident. The bus behind me didn’t stop in time, collide with my car. Then the impact push my car and hit the car infront, which hit the other car infront.

The impact is huge. I remember myself being push forward then pulled backward by the seatbelt. My back of my head hit the chair. Ouch. The bluetooth earpiece that I wore flew away from my ear and landed below my seat. It took me a few seconds for me to realise that I was being hit by a double deck bus.

I remember seeing the passenger of the bus taking picture of my car. I wonder if I would appear on stomp or not.

Its a big mess. None of the drivers has any experience on what to do. One of the car is a Malaysian car. The passenger is injured and need to go hospital.

Luckily, a traffic police happen to pass by and sort of restore some order. I called my dad to ask him get a tow truck for me. He informed my Sis and brother in law who is nearby. So they came down to see if there is anything to help.

So the police did the measurements and told us to lodge a police report. Its rather troublesome actually. In the end, I’m 1 hr late and my car is send to the workshop.

This is actually not the usual route that I take. I was trying out this new route to see if I can reach my destination faster.

Conclusion is…. No. This new route is alot slower. In fact, 1 hour slower.

Tired

Feeling very tired today. In fact, I’ve been feeling very tired for the past few weekends. Think its because of the OT and the late nights.

Been OT-ing for the past few days. Not much time for doing personal stuff when I reach home. As you can see, I’ve been blogging less lately.

School term is starting soon. If this carries on, I don’t know how am I going to have time to even attend my lesson.

I think I need to sleep earlier.

Waiting for someone to fix the problem

This is the 64738265274950674 times that I’m complaining about such issue. I’m going to do it again.

Recently, our team has been given a ‘new’ laptop. I think they reformatted the harddisk before giving it to us. All the setting are gone and I couldn’t log into the company LAN. So I went into the setting and do the necessary changes.

I was in a rush. The auditors will be arriving in less than an hour and I need to setup the laptop for the audit session. Halfway thru the setting, I notice something that made me curse and swear at my desk…..

One of my colleague used this laptop before! I saw his login id at the user setting. I saw his ID file at lotus notes. But appearantly, he couldn’t login to the company LAN server because the setting are incorrect.

So, what did he do when he couldn’t log into company LAN server with that laptop? Put it back into the cupboard and wait for someone else to fix it. How clever.

Bloody hell. If you don’t know how to setup the laptop, at least find someone to help out. And not put the laptop back into the cupboard as if everything is working fine.

Who are you waiting for to fix that problem? First, you don’t want to restart your job when it fails. Now you don’t fix the laptop when there is a problem. WTF. Pay you so much every month for FUCK? Go back to your own country and work in the fields better.

Totally pissed off.

Facing auditor alone

Satan Auditor came as planned yesterday. Instead of meeting him together with my teamlead, I was thrown to face him alone. My teamlead has another last minute urgent meeting to attend.

WTF. This is an internal audit and my teamlead actually ask me to go alone? All the other teams would send their teamlead to meet the auditors. My team is the only team in our department where the teamlead don’t attend the auditor meeting. And to make it harder for other team to break this record, we send a Contract Junior Officer to the meeting. Try beating that record.

And so, I went into the meeting room with tons of documents and a laptop.

I did what I could to answer every question that the auditor asked. For those management stuff, I asked him to email my teamlead. Actually, there isn’t much questions that I can’t answer. After all, this is the 3rd audit I’ve been to. I knew more or less what they look out for. Just that I’m not familar with where the reports are being stored. So it took a little while longer to retrieve it.

The thing is…. I just don’t like the idea of being thrown to do this. I’m not the teamlead or even a sub teamlead to begin with. If my pay is higher, I won’t mind doing it. I strongly feel that the amount of responsibilities I have has far exceed what I’m being paid.

49 days left to end of contract. 7 weeks.
Perhaps I should find a job where the pay fits the roles I’m doing.
