Thanks but No Thanks...

This afternoon I read a bulletin from my office "white board" (all announcements are pinned there for staff to read)... and I had a good laugh when I finished reading them. Let me write some of the points here... (they were written in malay language, I will try my best to translate)

"To achieve an efficiency award, all the staff must abide by the following rules...

Staff must always put on a smiling and pleasant face..... especially when their superiors hand down some extra work.

Staff must accept the work pleasantly and without grumbling eventhough the work is not written in their duties' lists.

Staff must not chit chat here and there, disturbing others.

Staff must not play games "online" in the office.

Staff must not go out for breakfast after 8am."

What I found amusing was.... I WILL NEVER EVER get the efficiency award ....

Firstly, I do not smile when extra work is handed down, I am serious, man.....
Secondly, I do chit chat with my colleagues when I m too darn tired and bored......
Thirdly, I do not play online games but I do onlining websites instead.. (same ke)
Fourthly, I cannot survive without having breakfast.... I MUST HAVE... and it is always after 8am....

So... efficiency award for me?? NO WAY.... BUT... please let me enjoy my life in the office... MY WAY, OK???
