And still cannot see when I gave them the original document to sign.

Then after I forwarded to the salesperson, copy them, suddenly their eyes open up.

Became my job to contact the salesperson to stop him from forwarding to customer, if still possible.

:rant:


This is very common. I normally will snip the main gist of my attachment and attach as a body to my email. Follow by the actual attachment. Like tat no excuse at all.



But my document is a form, minimal words, they only need to focus on what I had filled up in some blanks. Like this also cannot see properly, then must go for eye checkups liao.

Not totally redundant! The housework and cooking part doesn't change, although you don't need a full day to do it. From my experience, although my kids are in sec school and don't usually get home till 4pm or later, they still like me to be home when they are at home. They don't necessarily talk to me much (doing homework etc), neither do I wait on them hand and foot with drinks, snacks etc (all DIY) or supervise them closely, but they just like to have me within chatting range. They have a greater sense of security, I guess, and they will tell me more in bits through the hours than if we sit down and have a concentrated chat in the evening.

But it's good to start planning something - hobby, PT job, volunteer work etc for the extra hours when kids are older. For the past 1.5yrs, I was doing a PT/freelance job but I'm still waiting for the contract to be renewed (public service - red tape!). I've been looking for other possibilities in the meanwhile and have been called for an interview on Mon. It wasn't clear from the ad that it was FT, and the HR person says I can try to "persuade" the boss to let me have flexi/PT hours though he's not sure whether the boss (old man) will agree. Anyway, I said I'd go for the interview and see how. My husband said that if I am offered FT/flexi hours, I should go for it, but I still prefer PT/flexi. If it's FT in the office all day, I won't take it. That's just me - I don't want to be too busy and tired, and be grouchy with my kids every evening. A few years more, when my nest is really empty, then I may consider FT work.

Feel like giving the salesperson a good scolding.

Twice misrepresentation of information to end customer.

东边来了一只羊
西边来了一只羊
一起走到小桥上
你也不肯让
我也不肯让
扑通一声
一起掉进河中央

I learnt this chinese rhyme when elder boy was in N2
