Hello Hello Monday!

As usual, Monday morning is always a new start for me or even the start of the misery week (routine) for me or even everyone one of us out there.....

... before i step out from my house , i would think again, should i work from home and try to run away from the traffic.... end up ..... queuing up at jam ... day and night
... catching new datelines
.... catching new agendas for the week
...... checking blardy long emails
... checking out with colleagues what took place on their happening weekend compared to mine
..... can't wait for lunch time
... keep looking at the clock that clicks so damn slow
..... think what i have left out since last week
... think of what will be the good things / accomplishment that i have succeeded / not
..... think and daydream a bit....
.... wonder why lunch time past so fast....
....anyway, maybe this comes in a package afterall...

One item that refreshes me today is this conversation, that really catches my ears at this early hours when i just kick off my Monday morning bluessss

It was a conversation from my neighbour with his engineer from Banglore (on speaker phone) :
My funny neighbor : Hello Hairy Prasat !
My funny neighbor : HELLO HAIRY Prasat ! Are you there Hairy !
I was talking to myself : (Oh my godness, if you calling the right name , i wouldn't mind, why not just call him "bulu bulu". Does he knows that some of us are laughing away)
My funny neighbor : Oh hairy!
Hari Prasad : Yes sir!
My funny neighbor : You sure you hairy!
Hari Prasad : Yes sir, i'm Hari Prasad !
My funny neighbor : Hello Hairy Bangsat !
Bangsat = Definition = something not good afterall ..

errrhhhh .... anyway, the conversation just kick in after that, i wonder what Hari Prasad is thinking now, is he deaf , did it on purpose or he is already scolding him in his heart :)

So guys out there, if you are not sure such name, please consults your colleague la... malu la ni !

What would you do on Earth Hour

I wouldn't imagine what would happen that night .... when all the lights are turned off, if it rains cats and dogs and so happens it falls on a season of "ching ming" which is a day when you will see people burning imitation money, clothes and servants along dark street for the deceased to use afterlife.

Want to know more about "ching ming"

More readings on how to use the imitation money for the deceased ?

Will our security / police force be ready to rumble?

Fire brigade are you ready to pick up the mess if the candles that the supporters are bringing in helps to light up the day?

Shopkeepers and grocery stalls make sure you have stocked up enough candles which is on demand !!! :)

Will the mat rempits be out for business "* this only applicable in Malaysia ?

Will there be any big impact events going on that night?

Will there be something which you would not like to see?

Will terrorists take this opportunity to attack?

Make sure once you power down @ 2030SGT, 28th March 2009, make sure you can power up by the next hour? i'm sure you wouldn't want to see some magic show happening when goods are missing from the origin place. This goes to control towers, highrise buildings and banks too ~

What's worse is that
"There are 8,760 hours in one Earth year. The goal which is highly overambitious is to reach 1 billion persons. This is 1/6 of Earth's population and many of these live within the same households.

So at the very most, Earth hour will make an impact on your planet by 1/210,240.

Sorry, but one hour per year is nothing more than pandering and condescending to the real change that our planet desperately needs.

It will have the same effect as going out tomorrow and saving the world's starving and homeless by wearing a t-shirt with a smiley face on it."

Well, let's not demotivate yourself because of this. Do support this event wherever you are !!!
Do check it out : it's not only celebrated by malaysia but the world. Not too sure if they are celebrated by the "others" :)

Salary Increment

After 2 years of selfless service, a man realized that he has not been promoted, no transfer, no salary increase no commendation and that the Company is not doing any thing about it. So he decided to walk up to his HR Manager one morning and after exchanging greetings, he told his HR Manager his observation. The boss looked at him, laughed and asked him to sit down saying;

Myfriend, you have not worked here for even one day.
The man was surprised to hear this, but the manager went on to explain.

Manager:- How many days are there in a year?
Man:- 365 days and some times 366

Manager:- how many hours make up a day?
Man:- 24 hours

Manager:- How long do you work in a day?
Man:- 8am to 4pm. i.e. 8 hours a day.
Manager:- So, what fraction of the day do you work in hours?
Man:- (He did some arithmetic and said 8/24 hours i.e. 1/3(one third)

Manager:- That is nice of you! What is one-third of 366 days?
Man:- 122 (1/3x366 = 122 in days)

Manager:- Do you come to work on weekends?
Man:- No sir

Manager:- How many days are there in a year that are weekends?
Man:- 52 Saturdays and 52 Sundays equals to 104 days

Manager:- Thanks for that. If you remove 104 days from 122 days, how many days do you now have?
Man:- 18 days.

Manager:- OK! I do give you 2 weeks sick leave every year. Now remove that14 days from the 18 days left. How many days do you have remaining?
Man:- 4 days

Manager:- Do you work on New Year day?
Man:- No sir!

Manager:- Do you come to work on workers day?
Man:- No sir!

Manager:- So how many days are left?
Man:- 2 days sir!

Manager:- Do you come to work on the (National holiday )?
Man:- No sir!

Manager:- So how many days are left?
Man:- 1 day sir!

Manager:- Do you work on Christmas day?
Man:- No sir!

Manager:- So how many days are left?
Man:- None sir!

Manager:- So, what are you claiming?
Man:- I have understood, Sir. I did not realise that I was stealing Company money all these days.

Workaholics out there ! Beware !!

After reading this, do you still want to work like a ... hmmmm how would i describe it ... a DOG , a BULL or even a WRESTLER :)

Anyway, i doubt you would never thought of it too since this is not the best time toeven think of leaving erly especially those working in banking sectors. One good place that you may see is what's been practiced in the workplace i am , but the more the hours u stay back, the better the employer would felt especially when you did not ask for paid OT , or half dead.

Anyway, in the current market, the longer you stay back, make sure it's productive, else please lift your bum up and get the hell out of my way!!

Take k workaholics!
