Bad breath

Posted by: OLLie on: July 31, 2008

Bad breath customers just murder me silently. Especially when they talk so damn softly, and I have to go nearer to them to listen to what they are looking for. And it’s amazing how many of these customers have bad breath. I have actually lost count of the number of customers that I had to [...]

OMGOSH

I’m at work now, watching Alvin and the Chipmunks for 8th time in a row within 2 days. Kill me please.

MIAing

Posted by: OLLie on: June 28, 2008

Actually, the lack of posts, once again, is due to me working. The past 3 days have been absolutely crazy. Waking up at 4.45am to 5am, getting my ass to expo by 6am (on the first day), and 7am (for the rest of the days). Expo. From CCK. I was practically doing a Journey to [...]

Three 5s that I learnt about the PC show Part III

Posted by: OLLie on: June 19, 2008

The continuation of the Three 5s that I learnt from working at the PC show over the past weekend: Last 5 – About everything else miscellaneous 1. Customers don’t regard promoters as human beings. Evidence: I said “Hello” to Zhebin who was walking by, and he said an obligatory “Hi” back without looking at me, [...]

Three 5s that I learnt about the PC show Part II

Posted by: OLLie on: June 19, 2008

The continuation of the Three 5s that I learnt from working at the PC show over the past weekend: Second 5 – About the working conditions 1. The working condition’s not too bad. Besides the fact that the pay was less than 3 bucks per hour with the rest of the pay based on commission, [...]

Three 5s that I learnt about the PC show Part I

Posted by: OLLie on: June 18, 2008

Three 5s that I learnt from working at the PC show over the past weekend: First 5 – About the customers 1. The most difficult customers are the Indians. No racism here. But seriously based on my observations, they are the most difficult to handle customers. They ask for the best price, best deal, sucking [...]

Lack of posts

Posted by: OLLie on: June 16, 2008

Lack of posts for the past few days ’cause of the PC show and the problems that my lappy has been causing. Loads of stuff about the PC show to blog about. Amusing stuff, annoying stuff, freakingly pissed off stuff. I lost half my voice from the shouting done over the course of 3 days. [...]

Aches

Posted by: OLLie on: May 19, 2008

My body is damn ache-y now, with the worst hit being my poor feet after standing for 14hours (gotta add the transportation time you see.) I had the most terrible customers today, of which I managed to convince 2 of them to buy the product. One had a terrible bad breath who stood damn close [...]

Funerals + Work + Random

Posted by: OLLie on: December 17, 2007

Everytime there’s a funeral held at the multipurpose area near my house, I cant help but picture myself sitting at the tables, crying my heart out if the person lying in the coffin is someone dear to me. That’s why I would rather I die first than to have to face the possibility of someone [...]

Left my feet behind

Posted by: OLLie on: December 12, 2007

After sitting around mugging for a damn long time, then sitting around chionging drama serials for a week or so, I finally started work (that is only gonna last for a few days. Sigh.). I stood for 12hours non stop. I think I left my feet behind my workplace. My body’s floating from my thighs [...]
