I do my assignment before I am going to sleep. I'm not back in school nor doing my work assignment. What you are reading now is actually my assignment. I don't want to waste much time online. Because I know I would end up doing nothing.
I stopped typing when I saw the "daily bread". I should read today's inspirational message before midnight. Then I stopped reading when I remembered I have to check my planner. May be I forget to pay any bills which is due today. Then I remembered that I have to get the receipt of stuffs I purchased last week inside my wallet and transfer it on the bill transparent envelope. I don't want to forget anything unpaid on its due date. For some reasons, I don't want to pay the interest and I don't want to be pissed off to receive calls from call center agents demanding I should pay my bills ASAP. I never experience such situation yet. But sometime early in the afternoon, someone called up.
"Hello?", I answered the phone while reviewing my work.
"Hello, may I talk to Ms. E," a middle aged lady's voice on the other line.
ME: "Oh, sorry, she's sleeping."
Middle aged lady: I called up an hour ago and someone told me she's sleeping. Until now, she is still sleeping!? Until what time your break will be?"
ME: "Twelve to two pm. It's quarter to two."
LADY: "Wow, ang galing naman. What a long break! I think I will apply in you company. (sounds insulting). Ba't kayo hindi tulog?"
ME: We have a choice to sleep or not to sleep during our break. I have so may work to do pa. Ms. E is tired.
LADY: Ano ba siya dyan, kargador?"
ME: (Biglang uminit ang tenga ko.) "If you don't believe me then go here."
LADY: "You are all liars!"
Me: "Huwag kang mag-accuse."
LADY: "What's your name?"
LADY: "I want to talk to your boss."
ME: "He's not here."
LADY" Is this bastos L and L?" (She mentioned two names.)
ME: "Ikaw ang bastos."
LADY: "Ha? Ikaw?! Ha-ha."
"Blag!"I need to cut off the conversation by banging the phone as if I slap it on her face.
The phone rang again. I just ignored it.
I can say not all call center agents are rude and not all income tax preparers are liars.
