Raptured

Posted in Uncategorized by expatatlarge on May 22, 2011

Has E@L taken the Oriental Rapture Express to… what is, this place? Heaven?

Ah no, it’s merely the cheese-board for the free-flow champagne (only Moet) brunch at the Ritz-Carlton. Sigh. Life is tough.

~~~~~~~~~~

However things took a slightly apocalyptic turn when someone came over from across the room. It was his new Japanese boss*, head of the division, his boss’s boss to be exact. Don’t get it wrong, he was fine, said hello, etc… He’s a nice enough guy, but, you know, oops, one of the workers out at the Ritz?

E@L is now expecting a review of his contract tomorrow…

Does this also mean no “working from home” tomorrow**, or can he claim that he was taken up…

E@L

* had to txt our office manger to remind me of his name – we are talking my NEW boss.

Out to Tampines, it costs me $24 to get a taxi to work. Fuck that. Seriously. Fuck that.

    No 30 minute MTR commute?

    Walk to bustop + bus + MTR + walk to office = 65mins+.

    Walking in either stinking hot temperature or stinking hot temperature + rain, either way soaked.

    Taxi = 15mins straight up PIE

    You, my friend, will LOVE this: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-1388827/Atheists-better-sex-religious-followers-plagued-guilt.html

    Especially the ending quotes from the guy who did the study. And here I thought Kansas was Bible Land through and through.
