Ugly World, isn't this?

Sigh. That was what happened with a friend of mine few days ago. The boss felt that she was challenged as all the while no one ever dared to disagree with her. As a result, he was forced to sign the letter of resignation. Heh, so kiasu.

Well yea, I'm a fresh graduate and I'm yet to see how the system of this world goes. So far I found out that most people are very kiasu, not just the Singaporeans. I mean, I roughly know how most people in this world are. Heard stories from my parents, my seniors and some friends. If possible, of course I don't want anything as such to happen to me!

Getting too close with a colleague, whether you've known him or her for a long time or you just met, will invite bad comments and the spread of hearsy from others. What the heck. Don't they have anything better to do than gossip?

Two best friends work together in the same company. In order to secure the post and to keep all the power to herself, she said something behind her best friend that caused the boss to terminate her.

Now that brings me one question: Can we still trust our best friend(s) if we are working under one roof? My parents have cautioned me about getting too close with colleagues and trusting my best pals too much. They are right; best friends are those who can easily betray you because they know more about you than others do.

I know someone who prefers some to others. He/She would treat his/her gang members real good, while the rest whom he/she doesn't like, don't ever expect him/her to talk to them. If conversation is inevitable, they will receive rude treatment. Tsk tsk tsk...

Happening right here in Malaysia, is the fighting for power, fame and fortune. If you're a Sarawakian, you should know the few companies who are dominating the market. No no, I didn't say it's wrong to strive for more money. Everyone needs money to live! But have you ever wondered, why do rich people want even more? The more they have, the more they want. Perhaps that's why the rich get richer, and the poor get poorer. Hello... you who are filthy rich, can you please do some charity by donating your leftovers to those who deprive of it? I'm sure doing charity won't cost you your life!

Sigh. Sometimes I really feel like teaching these humans a lesson or two. This is my initial plan: gather all those who have been betrayed or suffered in one way or another due to somebody, and we pay them twice of what they have done to us. Revenge - yep, that's the word.

However, come to think about it, let God handle all those perverts and liars. All we have to do is just do our part in the society - giving helping hands when it is needed or asked, treating everyone equally regardless of race and religion (which is a bit difficult, I know), try our best to make the world a better best by simply being in it. What have you got to lose?

Well, maybe I should take the initiative to change for the better, starting from myself.

Well gal, that's life. Sometimes do depends what type of friendship do they on. It's sad though, but get a better job, a better pay perhaps?

That's why I can never work under a boss. I would rather be my own boss or an academic.
