Human Peeves

Like watching paint dry

Upon many interview sessions I had with an O&G company, they later asked me to fill in this huge questionairre. It was suppose to provide inroads to my personality. All I can say is, whatever.

I filled it up fairly quickly, but there's a few sets of questions surrounding a theme which I toiled and thought deeply about : "How well can I tolerate different personalities?"

Recently, at my current company, I won a client. (Woohoo!!!) Their business compliment me very well, because it involves with branding and media. The management team is very creative and down-right nice, except for one person. The Lady in Accounts makes me want to poke holes in my eyes. Or jump out of the building. Or set myself on fire. And all that would be completely bliss compared to what I have to tolerate from her.

Everytime I asked her a question, she provides me with the LONGEST pause, stares at me with the blurrest face, and then respond stuff like "I need to go to the ladies" or "Can this wait".

My human peeve? When having to face one who always needs to win and make people agree with him/her in a discussion or argument. Agree to disagree la wei, things in life are not made up of only one correct answer!

Haha. Emo pulak. Good morning :)

I'd say that either she was thinking whether she feels like squating like the norm or she wants to try standing.

the woman is teaching you the meaning of either of these 2 words: patience or aggrievation - your choice mate.. that said, i dislike those kind of people too, and somehow they are either in HR or Finance. hmm..

You know how when you watch national geographic and one of them creatures will roll into a ball or secrete musk or grow huge as a self-defence mechanism when threatened?

I guess you can do the same by giving blank stares and going to the loo

some people are like dat la. it's like they're permanently stoned or something. just give her a few knocks on the forehead and say, "helllooooo?? anybody home???"
i always dreamt of doing that to this colleague i always had to deal with. after a long long explanation of the things i need from him, he'll suddenly like snap out of this deep trance and go, "camne? camne?"

idiot. hahah me emo too.

maybe your questions were way to smart for her capacity.

and the huge questionnaire you mentioned reminds me of the 15 pages long of Fear Factor Msia form I filled in last week.

Mudster:: That is not too bad. At least dia tak melawan. Try working with someone that just don't listen.. Keep on babling about irrelevant things.. and then need to go out early to grap some beer with her friends.

I was *this close to kick her arse..

Maybe she's like JD in Scrubs. Dreaming about tying you up or kicking you or kissing you all over and leaves for the toilet to stuff.

You should tag along one day Muddy, just to see what she's really up to

hmm i always experience difficult times with the Accounts lady in my office. if i need some kind of information from her, she always asks "why, why you need that?" or "i'm busy, can you ask me again tomorrow"? i'm like?? hello...just give me what i need and i'll be out of your way lah. there was once i misplaced my pay slip and i asked her to print a new one for me and she went like "why, why you lost it and why u need it?"'s my payslip so suka hati la kan!

opss sorry terlebih emo lak :)

A late good morning to you too committee member of the great BBU club. :)

Oh gosh, i cannot stand them people too. Its like i appreciate your views, but don't stuff it down my throat! kind of thing.

Anyway, look forward to our first BBU meeting...

Lissa :

Hey babe, you going to Yanz special day in JB right? :) I am going as well.

Anyway, ignorance is bliss. And so is recommending to management that she be fired. Muahahahaha!!! (So evil).

vlad :

Muahahahahahaha!!! Boleh ke keluar when standing? Hmmmm...cuba try. Muahahaahah!!!

chics :

I doubt my charms got her tongue tied lah. Anyway, if I had charms, I don't want to waste it on a zombie like her. Huhuhuhu...

cherrybakewells :

Aiyoooo, gross lah! She's like auntie auntie; that will simply leave an unbearable scar and cause me to go to therapy later. Huhuhuhu....

kepala angin :

I know!!! No offence to anybody, but generally speaking, people in accounts are really, really blur. And don't get me started with HR...

dade ghost :

Like I said to cherrybakewells, I. Don't. Think. So. Muahahahahha!!!!

kaisersoze :

What i have resorted doing (which seemed very, very effective), is to email all requested whatever to her boss, allowing her to direct Lady in Accounts to move her ass and do her job. I smirk in happiness. Muahahahah!!!

BJ :

Muahahahah...whatever she wants to do at the loo, I really do not want to know! And what's with the coin trick? Have that ever happened to you? Huhuhuhu...

Yanz :

Hey bride! Heheheh...anyway, yeah, it's like knock, knock, anybody in there. Everytime i read this entry, i always can see her blank face in my head. And it makes me wanna vomit. Muahahaha...

The Yoga Instructor :

Now tell me, which part of "Can I have your card" will she have difficult understanding? I swear, it took her a good five minutes before she said she's out of it. Damn mangkuk. Muahahah...

Ooooo Fear Factor? You joining? How very cool. :)

MK :

hehehehe...its cool. But as an Accounts Manager, its quite disturbing to know she's that blur. Imagine she was blur not to forward salaries into the bank accounts. Let's fire her!!!

Shell :

Aiyooo, i feel like kicking her beer-filled ass as well. Muahahaha!!! And pandai melawan? Haven't she heard of stapled skin before? evil...

Anuar :

Dude, the description of what you think she is thinking makes me wanna dig a pen in arm. so so disturbing. Mehehehe...

Silent Reverie :

Gosh, accounts people are such complexed creatures i say. Some (like the ones we know) should get their heads examine. I really, really think so.

Vlad :

Are you flirting with MK? go boy!!!

Shobshob :

Dude, you really can be blur sometimes. Which is quite disturbing to know, since you are an engineer and all. Huhuhu...just kidding man! And yeah, see you tomorrow!

Madnessinvain :

Dude, I find you an extremely prolific writer, but your comment...I am confused lah! (Sorry, my time to be blur...)

Foxybabe :

Muahahah...I love to daydream as well. Especially the few minutes before going home...hehehehe...
