Oscar nomination: ME

I see all these Oscar nominations and what not and it makes me think what really makes all these movies eligible for awards when there are so many people out there who deserve an award for the work that they do? I am not talking about Abdul Sattar Edhi. I’m talking about people like me: […]

Did anyone say sleazeball?

I love swearing. I do. It comes naturally to me and if I can swear in front of you, then you know we are really, really tight. Having said that, I refrain from swearing while at work. With the guests, I mean. Not my team mates. OF COURSE NOT. Are u kidding me? They need […]

What to do when an employee talks back..

So, the question of the day is what to do when an employee talks back? Well.. Or you take that mother fucker by his collar, shove a glow-in-the-dark dildo so fucking far up his ass that his mouth emits lights instead. But no. I can’t do that. I can’t do that because it would reflect […]

C’est la vie!

Today was such a good day, I’m still on a high. No, no drugs (this time), just a really good day at work. I feel empowered. Also, my boss was sick today, so he went home almost as soon as he came in. “What’s wrong with him?”, I asked but knew already. He’d been varminting. […]

When your boss promotes his mistress

Okay so she’s not exactly his mistress, just rumored to be. Several colleagues have witnessed them leaving work together and eyebrows have been raised over my boss’s biased attitude towards her. But still, it’s a strong word with a stronger meaning. I really shouldn’t use it…too bad it makes for such a catchy title. The […]

You make me ss..stutter!

I deserve an award. For being the most hated person in a work place. I have no doubt in my mind that if you asked my General Manager to make a list of the things he hates the most, my name would be the first on that list. In fact, that is the only list of […]

Male Red Riding Hood

My hotel’s brand logo’s color is red. Red as in dark red. Rouge. So at least one piece of clothing in our uniform has to be red. The girls wear red shirts while the boys have red ties. Mind you, their tie color totally sucks. It might just be the shade but I would have […]
