Ass-essments

It is only a matter of time before the TELUS bosses decide to kick me out of the office. That is, if all my pleas come to naught; though I remain hopeful that my abilities to kiss ass have not waned. I have not stayed in this company this long if I am entirely ignorant of the many ways to kiss ass. Other people in my circumstance (habitual absenteeism, chronic case of tardiness and overbreaks) would try to reason out, but the pet in me will always reason out nicely.

I was not always a pet. In fact, I used to have a tendency to question authority and to avoid being subject to the rules. Perhaps, the pet me in has been repressed too much that when given the chance to kiss ass, it comes out frenzied, ready to prepare to lick the rear of the first boss in sight.

I shall give it a try one more time, my charms are not nil--and so are my metric scores. If it does not work, then I would have to revert to my old self. I write brilliant resignation letters.

Ass kissing? A way with words? Habitual absenteeism, chronic case of tardiness and overbreaks...

Would you consider a career in politics?

Victor Gregor said...

@gentle: oo nga naman. may pagka-UP centric pa rin pala ako. haha.

@Niel: I used to be a PolSci major, dear. LOL.
