Itâs strike two for me this week.
Yesterday, I was so busy making letters and sending them out, answering phone calls and taking down their messages, and assisting visitors to their respective rooms for meeting or whatever.
After doing all that, I took a break when my phone rang. It was a friend asking for some financial aid. I listened to her but then a common friend said that she doesnât have a good history of paying back her debts so I was kinda hesitant to lend her some money.
Ok, I told her Iâll try to think about it. I immediately called up a friend but an incoming call came in so I hung up. After the business call, I phoned my friend again but then the boss came with raging eyes and said, âIâm calling youâ and waved his hand because he found what he was yelling for â our office boy.
I felt small, like a nine-year-old being yelled at by her mother. Good thing nobody was there to witness it. Then I reasoned to myself, he should have approached me and told me that his guests wanted water or something and not yell.
Yelling is not good or is he allowed to do that to me because heâs my superior?
Today, I got a good yell and some of those raging eyes too when I didnât fax something to our head office for someone.
This I know is my fault. I should have faxed itâ¦ I forgot about it. Iâm just human.
After a few minutes, we are in good terms again. Iâm just glad that people here donât dwell much on the topic or the wrong thing done as long as you can fix it. My superior said he dislike the âHATEâ word. I just hope that tomorrow, I wonât get the same treatment.
I want a vacation.
