Yesterday was bad, Today is better

I had a semi-shitty day yesterday.

I woke up feeling weak and tired. It was my first day and I was hormonal. Ugh! HR kept texting me about some requirements that I failed to submit earlier, I had to look for some of them.

Then as I was about to take a shower, I noticed that my right ear-ring was missing and I panicked! Pucha that piece was given to me by my Mom from the US. Diamante yata. I looked all over my room and the bathroom but I could not find it. I was thinking that if I dropped my ear-ring at home, I could still find it. But if it was dropped at work or in the cab, that's it! Goodbye hikaw. Patay!

While taking a shower the next door neighbor started taking a shower too. Natural, we had to share the resources and I ended up getting less because they were closer to the source. Buwiset! Kung kelan nagmamadali ako. Magkasunod pa sila naligo ha! And to think they were not going anywhere at 4:30 in the afternoon, day off nilang mag asawa. Of course, I could have just asked them to give way to me since I was going to work and I was almost done but I did not have the energy to ask. Siyempre I would have to go out with conditioner in my hair and in a robe and towel. Not a nice sight. Kahit tapos na akong maligo, iniwanan kong bukas ang gripo full force para mapuno yung big pail ko at mahirapan sila mag ipon ng tubig for a while. Hehehe.

After taking a shower and dressing up, I had to look around for the last time for my ear-ring. Ikot ako ng ikot. I was getting more tired moving around and not finding it. I gave up and went to work. Na late ako ng 5 mins because of this. Buti considerate ang trainer ko.

After our shift, we were sent our schedules. Since the schedule was not final and unassigned, our trainer decided to give it to our batch so we could choose our scheds. The file was sent to one guy so it's but normal he gets to read the sched first. Malas ko, I was the last to see it. They all were able to get their scheds, I ended up getting what was left. The guy who got the list of scheds wanted the same sched I wanted but he was holding the list of schedules. Nauna na raw sya and he won't give it up daw. Sabi ko I won't give up either. It came to a point where he said something like makikipag away daw sya sa akin if he doesn't get it or aawayin nya ako. I said makikipag away din ako. I was looking at the schedule but I could not focus because he kept yapping and talking noisily. He kept saying hindi sya papayag at gusto niya toss coin na lang. Susme! Kalalaking tao sasabihan ang babae na aawayin nya! Tapos kung anu ano pa sinasabi. Nainis ako so I said he can keep the sched because there is no way the issue will be resolved. He said he wanted to toss the coin with me but I refused and I started to walk away. He still kept yapping, he said magmumukha raw siyang masama. Huh? Ano ba yan?! I told him it will never be resolved that way so he can have it. I walked and never looked back (drama!).

I understand his point that he wanted the sched. Sa totoo lang ang pangit ng ginawa nilang sched because the it appears that the morning shift people has the advantage of getting a closer to normal time and days off. The night shift scheds had days off right in the middle of the week. Sino ba magkakagusto nito? Nakakainis diba? Nakakaturn off yung ko worker ko kse he was acting like a kid and he said things like aawayin ako. Kalalaki nyang tao sasabihin yon, dinig pa ng ibang agents on the flooor. Mas matanda pa ako sa kanya, he should have shown a little more respect rather that saying makikigpag away siya sa akin within the ear shot of the other people around us. Kaya ayun, walk out ang lola. Of course I showed some petulance by walking out but I'd rather give up that sched that argue loudly with him. If he feels or thinks he looks bad infront of the other people, that's not my problem anymore.

I got home exhausted physically and emotionally. I wanted to just go to sleep and forget about everything but I couldn't. I felt I needed to resolve one issue, my ear-ring. I hoped that I dropped it at home and not anywhere else. I had to sweep/clean my room and the bathroom for the last time. Pinagpag ko pa bed ko, removed my pillows and blanket and ran my palms and fingers onto the surface of the bed sheet. Walang hikaw. I shifted through the dirt and found nothing. When I finally hit my bed, I felt worse than ever. As I was sliding my hands under my pillows I was thinking, what if I suddenly feel my ear-ring under my pillow at nandon lang pala. In less than a minute, I felt something like a big piece of dirt under my pillow. It felt odd so I turned on the light to see what it was...

It might be a bad day on what you went through. Anyway as long as you keep your poise, you're still better.

I don't know if you still remember me, Everett (aka RainMan). It's really nice to see some of an old friends blog while just surfing. Anyway, I hope you'll find that precious earing.
