Wah kena (got) sounding from my
fansi friend for being MIA (missing in action) and not putting up a post yesterday. Sorry lor, she summore sms-ed me to ask what happened to me, wanting to report police summore! Wah, me so the touched… 😀
Was out seeing customers and collecting $$ so no time to update lor, and this morning come in got another surprise, one of my staff just stopped work without giving notice and was not contactable since yesterday. Angie was calling him since yesterday as he disappeared after lunch! Wah so clever, just collected salary and disappeared leow! Ayo..we were discussing what could have caused him to pull such a stunt. So far, he’s been a very good worker (my son simply adores him), and me as an employer also been quite good to him leh, in fact, he was forced out of his residence recently by my pah wong (errr dun know the Engrish word for this la…) office neighbour and had to move out like in a week. He needed some cash to pay off the tenant who rented his own apartment. So me as usual, very nice one (refer to this story) so allowed a loan to him and he can repay the loan in 5 months time. But malang di timpa malang, (more trouble came upon him) his wife’s family home was burnt to the ground in the kampung and he had to help them out and housed them in his family home. He didn’t come to me for another loan but he did approach another worker, but of course that worker also furious with him la, he himself was in trouble, and he had to borrow money to help others pulak! How can?? If he approached me, I don’t think I will loan him anymore lor. But then again, he didn’t approach me, and nothing happened like he was being wrongly accused or being scolded or whatever, but he just DISAPPEARED!
I was telling Angie, maybe he got offended when from what I said last week when an old worker (F) of mine came back to visit. I just asked F when he was coming back to work for me again. Did he get offended?? I didn’t mean anything, in fact I do need extra help…sigh…being an employer is so hard nowadays…I really want to know what really happened to him lor…it’s such a waste that he had to resort to running away like that, not that I’m like heartache because of the loan he has not repaid, I really don’t mind but to me he was a good worker despite him not turning up for work when he was supposed to at a few occasions….sigh..
