Have you seen God?  Would you like to see him and if you do, what will be your initial reaction?  What if you receive a memo from him?

Well, i haven’t met God and i don’t intend to meet him face to face just yet.  However, despite the fact that i have never met him, would you believe that he sent me a memo? 

Here’s the catch.  After barely being able to do anything productive yesterday because i was having a very serious nausea that would not allow me to sit and work properly, i woke up pretty early this morning determined to finish whatever has been left undone in the past day.

9:00AM… i was pretty serious about getting my life in perspective so i had to postpone my breakfast and started writing my “to do list” for the day.  The rain is pouring and boy am i happy to be in so early i did not have to swim through flooded streets on my way to the office.

Then the phone rang. My first caller for the day… the first of many phone calls i will have to entertain for the rest of the day.

It was a Manager on Site confirming the attendance of his staff for the next day’s training session.  Since they are not in my list i had to get the names again and add them so that they will be allowed to enter the next day.

Then he started nagging and yapping at me, although he gave the names as i requested. Despite the nagging, i confirmed that i have already added them to the list and he should send them for training the next day.

The nagging and the yapping continues.  He has been repeating the same statement over and over and over again: “tinawagan pa kita a month ago tapos nag email pa ako, bakit hindi pa rin kami kasama eh last month ko pa yun binigay sa iyo.”

I repeated the confirmation, but he did not listen. He continued ranting so i put the phone down and went on with my precious list so i will not forget anything.

The phone rang again.  Same person and same yapping and ranting. I confirmed again and put the phone down.  Having been distracted, i proceeded to the pantry for my breakfast and forgot all about him.

An hour later, a customer service representative called to alert me that they received a complaint about my rude behavior.  I explained my side and told her to proceed with the report that will be submitted to my Boss.

Feeling a bit on the violent side, i called my Boss to tell her everything from start to finish without leaving anything that the mind could ask.  I told her the truth as i know it and admitted that i indeed put the phone down on him and that she will be receiving an email regarding the incident.

An hour later, i received the formal complaint as well as a memo from God.  In the complaint, cry baby told the Customer Service Representative that: “I was only asking about the training and she banged the phone twice at me considering that i was talking to her in a very soft manner.”

Ooops, where is the part where he kept on nagging and ranting like crazy? I guess he forgot about it.

I also received a memo from God. Funny thing is, i couldn’t see the part where i am supposed to explain myself in writing within the next 24 hours otherwise i will be subjected to disciplinary measures.

I would really love to answer the complaint or maybe just talk to his Boss and tell her what a pathetic Manager she has hired to run her business.  Oh yes, i am in a serious mood to rage war with him because i know i am right! And no one talks to me like that…

Now, let me share the memo with you:

MEMO FROM GOD

                                      

          HERE IS A MEMO FROM GOD,AND I HOPE YOU WILL PASS IT ON

                                        TO OTHERS                            

      I am GOD,Today I will be handling all of your problems,please remember that

                                        I don’t need your help.

     If life happens to deliver a situation to you that you cannot handle,do not attempt

                                           to resolve it.

      Kindly put it in the SFGTD ( Something For God To Do ) box. All situations will be

                                 resolved , but in My time , not yours.

      Once the matter is placed in the box , do not hold on to it by worrying about it.

          Instead,focus on all the wonderful things that are present in your life now.

      If you find yourself stuck in traffic,don’t despair. There are people in this world

                           for whom driving is an unheard of privileged

      Should you have a bad day at work,think of the men who has been out of work for

                                                  years.

      Should you despair over a relationship gone bad,think of the person  who has never

                       known what its like to love and be loved in return.

      Should you grieve the passing of another weekend,think of the woman in dire

        straits,working twelve hours a day,seven days a week to feed her children.

      Should your car breakdown,leaving you miles away from assistance,think of

              the paraplegic who would love the oppurtunity to take that walk.

      Should you notice a gray hair in the mirror,think of the cancer patient in chemo

                          who wishes she had hair to examine.

      Should you find yourself at a loss and pondering what life is all about,asking what

         is my purpose,be thankful. Thera are those who didn’t live long enough to get the

                                              opportunity.

      Should you find yourself the victim of other people’s bitterness,ignorance

      smallness, or insecurities,remember,things could be worse,You could be one of

                                               them!

      Should you decide to send this to a FRIEND,thank you. You may have touched

                           their life in ways you will never know..   

 

By the way, if you are interested to meet this Gay Man’s God, you are more then free to keep in touch with him so he can personally introduce you. I can give you all his personal details like his Name, workplace, phone number, email address… name it!

 

For the benefit of my raging hormones, i investigated about his pathetic background and this is what i got: a lot of other Staff from our Company particularly the department that directly transacts with him have this impression: “Ang hirap niya kausap. Parang may sariling mundo hindi maka intindi.  Ang gulo niya kahit paulit ulit ka mag explain hindi pa rin nagsi sink in sa kanya yung information.”

 

Well, vengeance is sweet!

 

Moral lesson: never mess with me when i am caffeine deprived because i will mess your life!

when the going gets tough September 18, 2008

I am 6 months pregnant and broke.

Life is a mess. I work for a multi national company that pays big time, but i never taste the sweet fruit of my labor.

Someone is always in need of help or it is tuition time.  Being pregnant and harassed by adult responsibilities is not a joke.

I would like to enjoy my young family like all married women do…

Is it a crime or a sin against humanity if i would request for my leash to be loosened and i will just focus on my husband and my growing belly with a swimming fetus for just one time in my life.

My parents expect me to be able to provide the scholastic need of a younger sibling just because they put me through a good school in my youth. 

But when can one ever say enough to the demands of the family and start focusing on one’s personal gain?

I want to be selfish for the sake of my baby.  Just this once, this one time in my life, i would like to earn and savor the rich life that i deserve and for this one time, enjoy the fruits of my hard earned money.

Life is not fair.  Have i been put in this nice job so that i can earn for the rest of my family?

I want to buy shoes and bags and nice clothes just like everyone else does.

Isn’t that the normal thing to do when you are working your butt off anyway?

I resolve to be selfish this time if only to ensure that i will be able to deliver in a nice facility and be able to welcome my little one in the most comfortable of clothes and facilities when he comes.

My child does not deserve to sacrifice for other people.  I am where i am because i tried so hard to reach my goals and to succeed in life.  No one with the power put me to where i am. This is purely because of my faith in myself and in my God.

At the end of the day, nothing else matters, but myself!

Because if i die helping others in their misery, they will never look back at me and comfort me when i suffer.

I know, i have been there and it hurts so bad when after all the sacrifices i have made for other people, i was alone when i was in need.

It is not a crime to save some for myself… this time it is just me!

My head is spinning this morning and i feel a slight headache that is starting to ruin my spectacular day.  For the past months, i have been thinking that pregnancy is just like being sick with Cancer… You never know how you will be feeling tomorrow.

My mood swings have always been a major problem with Badoodles from the beginning of time, but i don’t know how he keeps up with my ever changing reactions.  Perhaps, he has just got used to the idea that nothing is ever consistent with me except for the fact that i shall never be predictable.

It has become a very annoying pattern that i could not sleep when he is still out in the streets of Metro Manila when it is time for us to sleep or that he is burning his midnight oil infront of the computer in the middle of the night.

What is very annoying about the scenario is that i could not sleep when he is somewhere else and i am left alone in bed. The setback of not being able to sleep well in the night is that i feel woozy and lightheaded all day.

That’s extremely stressful when i need to go to work the following day.

I know i have been such a brat for the past four months, but that is all i am asking for. Never leave me alone because i feel like an abandoned puppy.  Don’t keep me up in the middle of the night waiting for you to hit the sack because i need to sleep without disturbance.

I guess, pregnancy is not after all the discomfort of the wife, but of the husband.

Perhaps he couldn’t wait until i deliver so that he can already be relieved of the anxiety of living with a crazy wife.  I am not hormonal.  I just want extra attention…. is that too much to ask for?

For now, i will have to deal with this uncomfortable feeling until the day ends and i get to sleep again tonight or maybe i will try to catch up on sleep by midday so i can focus on my tasks for the rest of the day.
