Work Woes

I'm a homebased freelancer. People who learn of what I do automatically think my life is easy. Very WRONG! Since I don't have co-workers, I am left all alone to fend for myself.

I am working for someone who trusts me so much that he leaves me alone while he does his thing. Ang problema pag kailangan ko ng support or I need clarification, ang hirap nyang hagilapin. Pag nag roll out sya ng bagong information about a new product, gagawin na lang nya without informing me. Akala nya siguro mind reader ako kaya alam ko lahat. It's so frustrating kasi I want to be good at what I do, I want to give the best possible customer experience. Kuha sya ng CEO nya na di rin alam kung paano sasagutin mga tanong ko.

The other person I am working for, supper support naman. Ok sana kaso may kulang sa instructions nya or when he explain things parang hindi ko maintindihan. I think it's a cultural thing and it's not personal but it's really hard. May gusto syang ipagawa at gagawin ko naman. Tapos sasabihin nya kulang eh yung instructions nya kulang din.

One employer thinks I'm sooooo good I can read minds while the other probably thinks I'm stupid because I don't understand him. Hindi ko alam kung matatawa ako or maiinis. Hehehe.

Yan, that's how I've been feeling lately...
