As predicted.........

As predicted no.1.............

Went to see the HR Manager this morning and as expected, the blaming finger was pointed right at me for being 'an unsympathetic superior'.

He said that as a superior, I shouldn't take what Mr.B's words seriously when he told me "to act like he didn't exist". That it's my fault that Mr.B felt neglected. (huh?)

*sigh* Easy to say when you're not dealing with Mr.B.

Besides, it sickened me when the HR Manager kept reating 'you as the superior' over and over again. It's not like they're giving me a superior pay. There's a Technician in our company who has the same salary as me simply because he has a high-powered boss and I don't.

It was like the HR Manager was telling me this:

"With Superior power, comes great Superior responsibility..........nobody has said it comes with Superior salary"

My current state of mind

As predicted no.2............

Someone else had a grudge against me today but it was my colleague who was shot badly by the 'revenge bullets'.

The Customer whom I shot at by saying that remark about 'kindergarten requirement' got his notoriously snotty colleague to find all possible faults with our division in a monthly meeting presentation today.

Now this made me feel bad because my colleague didn't deserve to be treated that way. It wasn't his fault at all.

Never thought I'd say this but I think I will have to act on some damage control in this case and apologize to the Customer when he comes over next week. My colleague is a kind, hardworking and quiet man who never holds a grudge against anybody no matter how bad he gets treated.

It's the right time to act like the nick I picked for myself...........'lady'.

To my colleague brother H, I'm sorry.


  1. This is very normal when you work in a service company. Customers is the KING! So they can do whatever they like and it never pays to offend them. I have seen countless case. At times, they can get very unreasonable and a pain in the neck.

  2. I agree. The worst thing is when it's you friend who has to pay for it. It's really sad.
