There are really a few kinds of different obnoxious people on earth whom I cant stand.

Let’s talk about one particular kind here.

People who always act stupid, act blur and try to shirk their responsibilities.

No matter they’re real stupid or act stupid, these group of people obviously have little to achieve in life because instead of putting in their heart to learn new things, they always choose the easier way out BY acting stupid and letting everyone else to do the work for them.

One of them includes my mummy’s boss. My mummy have been working for her employer for many years. Somehow, AMAZINGLY, over the years, no one has been able to lend her a helping hand. She’s not one who is selfish to teach, but somehow, all her apprentices cant do it without her. I tell you, she hates that. Because she’s always being pestered to work on Saturdays, public holidays and even on days which she dont feel well. Even her boss has the trouble of “starting the system”. *breathe deeply*

I do not know how complicated can it be to start a system but a boss who doesnt even know the basics? *slap forehead*

This apparently causes alot of problems whenever my mum was sick, on MC or hospitalised. The last time she was hospitalised at SGH because of her stomach ulcer, messages and calls kept coming in. After replying one of them that she will reply all calls and messages after she’s discharged, I off her handphone.

And tomorrow she’s going for a scan of her kidneys, to make sure there are no stones inside. Her boss got the cheek to ask her to come into office early in the morning at 8.30am TO ON THE SYSTEM before she can go for the scanning.

I called mum last sunday to remind her that she has to fast today from 10pm onwards for the scan test tomorrow. When I heard what her boss demanded from her, I had to keep my temper in check, though please understand my ire was directed at her boss and not her.

“what do you mean your boss dont know how to on the system?”

“Ya…he dont know how.”

“Teach him lah.”

“I taught before liao. He kept forgot.”

*breathe deeply*

“Mummy ah, there is one kind of people in this world, who always like to act stupid so that they do less work.

Tomorrow is Monday. You teach him again. Make sure he masters it before he leave the office. Come tuesday again, TEACH HIM ONE MORE TIME. Make sure he dont forget. If after teaching twice consecutively for 2 days and he still dont know how, he can go die liao!”

Mummy chuckled.

I added, “even if he’s sOoo stupid until he cant master it, he also dont dare to ask you liao. You tell him nicely, you need to fast for 12hours for the scan test, obviously you’ll be very weak in the morning. Tell him, your stamina cant handle the hassle to rush to and fro from home to office and then to the hospital. Be firm okie?”


It’s not as if the company is super nice to her. All her MCs must be from polyclinics. Private clinics’ MCs cannot claim for pay. And they have a quota for MC, once exceeded, it will deem as no-pay leave. My stubborn mum never takes MC unless absolutely necessary. So to speak, the quota is damn little.

Got once, she suffered so much from a persistent cough because the cheapo medicine from the polyclinic cant heal her. And you know everyone got to wait at least 2 hours at polyclinics. I had to go to a private doctor, feigned some coughing to get the medicine for her. After that incident, I seriously beg my mum to go to Dr Tan(our family private doctor) for consultation and dont think so much about the MC. Because I was so 心痛 at her suffering. =(

My mum already reaching fifties and she’s already not in the pink of health already. Why still got such heartless people who always try to take advantage of her whenever they can?

I just wish there is Karma around.

Hoping tomorrow’s scan produce positive results.
