The Martydom of a 20 something

Yesterday, i did not have to work. Or rather, i did not GET to work. i put my name down for overtime but due to cost-cutting, my company's setting a daily limit for staff coming back for ot recall (from here on referred to as otr). Of course i was a bit peeved as the name right before mine was the last to be taken, but what to do? That's life.
A colleague, however, found herself in the same position and she was in tears over it. Sure she's not well off and needs the money badly, heck! so do i what. just ask citibank n UOB. haha! Anyhoo, apparently she's a victim of circumstance and an unwilling heroine. She agreed to change shifts with this other gurl, so that she could go on a trip. In helping this girl, her name ended up at the bottom of the list. So no chance she's ever gonna get her otr approved unless there was a mysterious epidemic outbreak, causing 80% of the staff who's names are ahead of her to fall seriously ill. Then my Target Twin heard she was "caught" expressing herself drowning in salty tears of self pity. In the locker room. What is wrong with her?!?! Aside from other emotionally manipulative actions she's pulled in the past few months, This really is rock bottom. Then today she comes along and tells me her bf scolded her for changing shifts with the girl in the first place, losing her chance at getting otr. i fink he's jus annoyed that she's in tears over it. Well i'd be if i were in his place.Make sense or not, i ask you... Take responsibility for your damn actions gurl! If you didn't wanna change in the first place for whatever selfish or selfless reasons, you have the right to say "NO", and no one, not even your mother can make you think or say otherwise.
That's a load off my chest there. Her "poor me! poor me!" cries are starting to annoy her friends. Immensely. Tell me, is martyrdom really the path to getting your way? Or becoming the modern day hero we all secretly aspire to be?

Chomp! bloody Chomp!

I was at a foodcourt in Century Square the other day with the mother when I was distracted by the incriminating "chomp chomp" noise of someone chewing their food with their mouth open. When I looked over to give a bus-face, I found the culprit staring right back at me from the next table! THE NERVE! Oredy disrupt me and me mum's gossip session with her incessant noisy chewing, still can eavesdrop some more! It was then that the stereo sound surround kicked in... Her children and husband were chewing in sync! MOUTH OPEN! Well its not surprising, since apples don't fall far from the tree do they? But stereo sound, i kid you not.

I'll admit there are few things in life that bug the living shit outta me and public display of open-mouth-chewing is one of them. I had an ex, let's call him Moe. We met at a popular disco, hooked up, regularly met up for late night trysts the 1st few weeks into our relationship. When we finally had a proper bgr movie/dinner date, I was aghast. Yes, i use the word aghast. The fella was chewing with his jaw just gaping open with every bite lah! He was literally the poster-boy for a "DON"T CHEW WITH YOUR MOUTH OPEN" ad. Not only that, he looked around whilst chewing! That was an almost symphonic display of multitasking by a mere male if i ever saw one. I report that the blasted bugger did it throughout the entire dinner. Luckily for me, it was a quick one. Dinner, i meant.

"Why me?" I asked my Target Twin BW, all I want is to not be grossed out while having my meal. Is that too damn much to ask? "Its your arse luck lah, gurl"came the reply. Yes, I'll admit I am the Reigning Queen of Arse Luck. Bow your heads and hold me in reverence. I've heard it can be pretty contagious, so please consult your pediatrician for the appropriate vaccinations.

So please, if you feel a draught billowing against your tongue while you're having rosti and sausages, its time for a refresher course in Table Manners 101. I beg you, don't gross out innocent bystanders with your nasty eating habits. Close your mouth while you chew your food. This message has been brought to you by a public health awareness program.
