Chloe’s ex-babysitter came to visit at the store yesterday.. and Chloe just took to her immediately.. !!! Baffled i am .. because Chloe hasn’t seen her for almost 3 weeks now..!!! I’m happy for Chloe that she can remember her of course.. because I don’t want Chloe to forget her either.. and when Chloe grow older.. i will certainly let Chloe know that she helped babysat her .. when she was an infant. When i told Mr C that she was in and chloe took to her immediately .. Mr C said.. she had her horns filed and hidden well.. hahah!! it was funny..!! Now that made me wonder once again.. but like i said.. i can’t take any chances with my daughter.. and i don’t wanna be one of those mom.. that regrets in the end.. and say.. why didn’t i do this.. or that.. because with Chloe i cannot afford any kinda mistake.. she is too precious .. to me. So yes.. i still stick by my decision.. that looking after Chloe on my own is still the best.

Gay husband??? or just Evil man..?? Or small town man..???

Someone came into the store yesterday evening .. and started telling our Store Manager that he hoped my daughter don’t look like me..???!!!???? Wonder wats that all about..???!!!??? His way of camouflaging that his daughter is not his..???!!!??? like we all suspect..??!!!??? Or in reality.. he is just gay.. ???!!!??? As we chinese believed .. that men don’t gossip.. nor are they petty..??!!?? or am I wrong..??? Well .. maybe there is a reason for him saying that.. since his spouse was fired from our store many years ago.. and they think that it had to do with me…. but in fact.. I never resort to firing unless absolutely necessary. Just ask our store manager.. who has been with us … for almost 2 yrs now.. and you will understand.. wat kinda moron we come across in our store. Employees who do nothing .. and wanna be paid weekly.. and when you counsel and counsel and re-counsel them.. they still don’t do wat you ask of them.. and they still think that they got fired because of personal agendas..!!! Oh .. Plllleeeeeeeeeeeassssssssssseeeeeeeeeeeeee!!! my life is more fulfilling than this.. !!!! I have no time for small pettiness .. nor small town thinking…!!! I wish ppl would come up to me.. directly .. and be sarcastic in front of me.. then to do it at the back of me.. because when I wanna be sarcastic to someone. .. i do it when they are around.. which i think is more effective.. don’t you think..??!!!??? Well.. to you-know-who-you-are… you can go on wishing that my daughter don’t look like me for a million years.. unfortunately .. your wish ain’t gonna come thru’.. because my daughter look every inch like me and my spouse….. and as for yours.. the two of yours will never look like you .. and you know why…!!

Another milestone for tweety..??

Ever since Big R and M left for Halifax after school, we have been having a hard time finding replacements for them. Some hired on were either not doing the job right by being too relaxed or others are just completely not suitable for the job we have to offer.
We had to let S.R go because he cannot make up his mind whether he wants to work or not. And A .. he quit because he thinks he is not suitable for the job. We then hired on N, who was either too nice..??!!?? or just refuses to follow procedures and standards??!!??? We don’t know wat to make outta N??!!!??? Nice guy but way too… relaxed. Anyhow.. we hired on Cl.. and wow.. !! she worked out good… after a week.. we were thinking.. hey.. we could give her the keys to the store soon..!!! Hurray..!!! And a week into her job .. she was offered another job at Register.com. offering her $13/hr …. money we can’t afford right at the moment.. even my store manager is making less than $13/hr.. so how to fight with Register.com .. a call center based in Yarmouth, HQ in NY. Oh well.. just our luck..???!!!??? But this time… i took it more lightly than I would have a couple of year ago … and looked at it.. on all positive sides. After almost 4 yrs in Yarmouth, NS.. I kinda am able to expect the worst from the ppl here.. or learnt not to expect any good employees to be found in Yarmouth..???!!?? Luckily we have .. our store manager who is steadfast.. and loyal.. 🙂
So i am learning to count my blessings everyday.. 🙂 Life has taken a strange turn .. in mine.. if it was before.. a long time ago.. in Singapore.. i would expect nothing but excellence.. in performance.. after being in Yarmouth for a few years.. I’ve learnt to lower my expectations .. and count my blessings.. 🙂 Like when once i can get any kinda food in Singapore in less than 30mins.. now.. i have to first hunt for the ingredients for months.. and then test cook them for months.. before i can get some local dishes.. 🙂
But life goes on.. and I’ve just gotta learn to relax more.. and be patient.. especially now I have a daughter.. and i wanna set a good example for my daughter.. 🙂

Low tolerance

I don’t know wats with me .. and low tolerance for lazy and “act” dumb ppl..and those “fakers” on social assistance!! Maybe.. it’s because i’m so used to the asian society where we are always ultra-efficient.. and pro-active.. and don’t have unemployment.. like they do here.. and in the states..???!!?? Am i super efficient.. ??? No..! Hell no..!! But all I’m asking is for some decency.. in ppl… unfortunately.. there isn’t much who have some.. of course there are the rare few.. and i’m glad i know who they are.. and are acquaintances with them.. but you don’t find many “Gems” here.. 🙁
I know for sure .. i have very low tolerance.. for these ppl.. coz’ i just can’t stand them.. or be anywheres near them. And most are not really dumb.. they just act dumb.. and are definitely just lazy… as for those “fakers” on social assistance.. i don’t know wat word to describe them best..??!!?? Parasites..???!!!?? Deadbeat..???!!?? Freeloader..???!!??
The ppl we go thru’ as employees here.. are fantastic.. i tell you .. !! i have one that I can only tolerate for a few hours.. !! you had to tell her 10 times to F10 .. in order to get the phone # or the name of a customer.. and it was within the same hour… that we reminded her. Took an hour for her .. to put movies back onto the shelves. I don’t know if she was slow.. or just plain stupid..??!!?? But i’m really giving this one a benefit of doubt.. i think she is really, really slow.
I also have another fella we hired a few years ago.. and was fired 3 days later .. coz’ you can’t tell him .. wat to do in front of a customer.. coz’ it embarrasses him… so he said. OMG..!!! WTF..!!! [Read more…]
