I have learnt lately that:
1. To be helpful is OK but too nice in helping is a definite not OK. This is especially true when it comes to covering duties. When one is not around and she expects you to clear up her stuffs when she is gone, just like before.
2. Sometimes it is necessary in life to lie a little, not too much but just a little. This is true in order to continue your life in peace and to prevent further reprimand from your superior. This is also true when there are bastards in your department who expect you to cover your own a** when you’re in a tight spot.
3. You’ve considered missed viewing the event that you were not even invited in the first place. How about that? NOT invited = MISSED it!!
4. Do unto others what you want others do unto you.
5. Racists still exist and are living luxuriously in Singapore. They can easily be identified when they are in the society – rather stand up than sitting in a bus beside a dark-skinned lady/man, rather wait for the next lift than taking the lift with a mix of other races and many more.
6. The commuters that use the public transport are generally divided into two group.
One group consist of those who will probably end up dead if they could not board the crowded bus that came, fearing that the next bus will only come at 6 am tomorrow morning.
The other consist of those who do not give a thought about other commuters and would rather stand at their current position – under the air-con – rather than to move to the rear of the bus. It took about 3 pleas made by the bus captain before some reluctantly moved, for a few feet away from their current place.
And here we are, a caring and considerate society.
