Yesterday was a rather dramatic "Please scold Cai Ling" day. Okay, this will be a rather embarrassing but very true post...okay, I'm blushing now. -_- I felt rather pissed off and frustrated when they again, assigned Alwina and I to finish work at 11pm, when we already told the secretary again and again that we wanted to finish work at midnight instead. So we talked to the indian manager whom everyone shuns away from because he is rather intimidating? But..I did something really unexpected and which nobody would dare do in front of him. I got really frustrated when 'arguing' with him about why the secretary specially selected us because Amelin and Puay Suan could finish work at midnight. I hated the idea of being manipulated. Then, in the midst of the 'argument', I cried, scowled and sulked in front of him
Oh man...I didn't meant to do that, which was definitely not on purpose! No wonder my brother always says that I'm so childish which is unlike my current age, sheesh. Okay, it sounds funny and childish now because when I did that, he looked kinda 'amazed' and then he smiled and said, "You're a big girl now leh!" Lol. And then he went on to explain that I cannot do this in work in the future blah blah...rather strange for the intimidating guy to do that eh? Haha, it's so funny now...and then he put his hand on my shoulder and asked me to smile. Okay, it's so unlike him!
Alwina was like comforting me and all, and then we rushed up to the ballroom for the briefing. I swear that manager who briefed us is gay, I just know it, the way he talks, his gestures and all! He made such a big fuss when I didn't notice that the chopsticks on the other end of my table were splayed open, sheesh! So from then onwards, he liked to pick on me for minor things...-_- An auntie loved
fussing over me too; the way she says things 'cutely' makes me wanna puke. Okay lah, I think everyone loves to fuss over 'Xiao Mei's...including the kitchen staff, sheesh!
The good side of the day was that I served my table successfully! Yesterday was a chinese wedding dinner again! I think I'm gonna be sick of weddings haha! Okay, some form of jealousy here.. Some aunties at my table even chatted with me and a woman told me when she wanted to leave, "Thank you for your service". =) Lol! The best thing was that I finally managed to use the serving gear correctly and hence was able to quickly serve the food. =)) So nobody at my table complained about slow service. =))) I peeked at the comments card (and then got scolded by the gay manager) and was happy to know that they ticked "extreme" on the "The waitress was friendly, courteous and helpful blah blah..." Haha. Oh and we're not being separated yesterday because I reckon there's lesser staff on weekdays as compared to weekends, so I didn't get to see Mr. Mole and Amelin didn't get to see her buddy. Lol.
P.S. I adopted some adorable avatars from glitter-graphics; I love the animated ones, especially the one about love and Tom Felton a.k.a. Draco Malfoy! (ignore this if you know nothing, nil about Harry Potter) =))))
