Finally Took Matters Into My Own Hands

I got really fed up today.

Every single time something important comes up, I have to do this. I have to plead, sometimes grovel on my knees. And still I may not get what I need.

Whenever something urgent pops up, I have to beg every single person in my department. Helpch me helpch me. To no avail.

I finally took matters into my own hands. Beh tahan.

I can’t get the things I need to do the things I need to do so that the firm can get me the things I need. Sigh. My working environment is like the Ethiopia of the stationery world, there’s flies all over the place and my colleagues wander aimlessly with vacant looks in their eyes whilst lugging huge bloated bellies. Kidding. But seriously though, there’s a constant supply shortage and it gets a little irritating sometimes.

So, today…

I went out and bought myself a pair of scissors and a roll of cellophane tape.

I am so getting an Exceeds Expectations rating for Initiative during my annual performance review.

  1. Was gonna say what happened to the stationery at the photostating room, then realised you guys aren’t on that floor no more…

    If it makes you feel any better, out here, where things are meant to be canggih manggih, stylo mylo and effectively efficient, staplers and hole punchers are like good malaysian footballers……hard to come by…it’s pretty much every man for himself – finders keepers.

  2. Go curi from other ppl lar…

  3. you better keep the scissors and cellophane tape locked in your drawer in case someone decide to curi 😉 and then accusation will fly and then people will cry… waaah… like drama minggu ini! sorry, i sambung the cerita in my head!

  4. you should list those items down when your appraisal is due. i’m sure they are worth it 😉

  5. Tabik! Now we know who to harass

    I give them about 2 weeks before they go MIA

  12. Who cares about Sinning… We are all living in the land of Sinners… Malaysia Boleh mah…

  14. gemma momma,

    At least the fella left you the string. If it’s my office, string pun kena ambik.


    Lanyards pun hilang.


    Just because your neighbour eats shit everyday doesn’t mean that you have to do the same thing.


    It’s not that stationery is expensive. It’s our miserable pay packets. 😦

  15. Vinass,
