I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this before. My desk in the new office is rather close to the door. As we are in a IT dept, there is no chio bu receptionist sitting near the door to welcome visitors each day. So its those people sitting close to the door that open the door when visitors come. The admins are sitting closer to the door, but they are seldom at their desk.

I don’t mind opening the door once in a while. But we have nearly 200 employees in the office and there are alot of visitors each day. I cannot keep walking to the door whenever a visitor press the door bell. I still need to work.

I’m sick of opening the door already. I decided to ignore the door bells. I’m not going to open the door. Not even when you press the door bell repeatly.

Call me selfish. But shouldn’t you be calling the person whom you are visiting to open the door for you instead?

The purpose of the lock is to prevent unauthorised people from entering the office.

But how am I suppose to know if someone is really a visitor or a thief?
Am I suppose to question them to see who they meeting?
Do I have to check their staff pass or note down their NRIC?

So far, we been opening the door for anyone who press the door bell and allowing them to enter without any question. Then why install a lock in the 1st place? Since any tom dick or harry can enter the office, why not just leave the main door open?

What is the purpose of the door, the lock and the bell?

Has it ever occurred to you that someone not close to you come and asked you something very personal and expect you to answer it? And when you tries to ignore the question, they just won’t let you go. No matter how hard you try to shake them off, they just won’t give up until you tell them the answer.

Its not as if you are someone close to me. Even if you are, some things are not meant to be spoken. But you are just a friend. Or colleague.

Do you expect me to answer all the private questions?

In the first place, are we that close that warrant you to ask such personal questions?

I guess it doesn’t really matter to you. All you wanted is some saucy news so that you can exchange during your next gossip session. But aren’t these abit too personal? And do I really know you that well to even talk about such topics?

Whatever happened to personal privacy?

Why should I answer your questions? When I refuse to give you an answer, isn’t it loud and clear that I have no intention of telling you at all? Why do you keep asking and asking? Have you ever asked yourself, are we that close to talk about such personal issue in the first place?

You are not someone close to me. And I’m not a sideshow freak. So why don’t you just shut up and mind your own bloody business.

Why is it that there are so many busybody around me? Its not as if they are asking all these things because they care. They are just asking for the entertainment value. If they really care, they would had asked what is the impact of asking such questions. They don’t know how much their questions is affecting me now. They don’t care. They just want the entertainment.

My blog was being spammed…. badly…

Got 17 emails telling me that I got comments on my blog. But all of them are spam. Argh…. What is the problem with all these spammers? Do they really think people will buy from them? I will avoid using your product and visiting your page when I ganna spam by you. Don’t you get it?

I don’t want to turn on the word verification because I find that it is troublesome to leave comments. Besides, the spam problem wasn’t that bad for the past few months. But look like its back now.

Will need some time to clean up the spam…..

I seriously don’t mind helping friends. But sometimes, I think it is abit too much that they ONLY come find me when they need my help. And when there is nothing, they just disappear without a word.

Is this still friends? Only find you when they need your help. They never call to meet up for a chat or coffee. Or simple SMS to ask how you doing lately? Why is it whenever I see your name on my phone, I knew there is something wrong with your PC?

Sometimes I wonder will you be there if I ever need your help….. I don’t want to have a chance to find out…..

Got this email from HR few days ago.

The Ministry of Community Development, Youth and Sports (MCYS) and Centre for Fathering are organising a nationwide “Eat with Your family” on 26 May 2006. We want to encourage all our employees to take time off this Friday to enjoy dinner with their families. Where possible, managers should call it a day at 5pm on that day.

Its nice to work in a company that supports most of govt’s policy.

But here is a question…. What if your family members’ company doesn’t support that policy? You go home early also no use right? haha.

30mins and I’ll be knocking off. 😀
