Conscious Job Decision?

When one is growing up, does ANYONE think;

1. "When I grow up I want to work for a government ministry."
- because where else can you get breakfast, second breakfast, elevenses, brunch, lunch and seven tea breaks before the day ends?

2. "My dream when I'm older is to work in Human Resource."
Because it's a noble job as I get to help and nurture my fellow colleagues. Also because I flopped my bar exams one too many times and with my legal training I can make sure no unions fuck with the system.

3. "I can't wait to start working in Shopping Mall Management."
Well, where else would I apply too after I quit my HR job?

4. " When I become a media buyer I'm going to be king of the world!"
Even when I'm 50, I will still be able to tell insecure marketing managers to spend their millions on either Tiffany or Debbie Gibson. Hannah Montana who???

5. "Of course a 'chai walla' in an international offshore call center"
Dont laugh, after the Oscars every slum kid will have an alternate dream than making it big as a Bollywood actor.

Don't make fun of civil servants ok. This shows that the quality of life has increased and that is proof that government can provide good quality life to the rakyat. That is to take taxpayers money to buy their kuih-muih for tea time.

b) wealthy by all means necessary (mostly through bribery & scam)
c) a porn star


d) a politician so that i can be all of the above

Ah Limzzzzzz! We'll there is SOME hope. The last time it took me just 15 minutes to renew my driver's license. A far cry from the hour plus time it took in the past.

Ah Chanzzzz! BUT i THOUGHT you were all grown up already... what with that wealthy and porn star action... :P :P :P (i joke, i joke of course)

nope that's not my ambition obviously i dont have massive knockers so can't be a porn star can i? just thought it is a generic what-i-want-to-be-when-i-grow-up for the menteri besars and the MPs in this world.

15 minutes? maybe they are getting commission for every job they do. So if you are slow, get less. Fast, get more. Sorry ar, I really don't have hope. I'm still waiting for RM500 worth of books i ordered online from US, and guess what... it is missing. Don't know where. Called Pos office 3 times, say they will check and call. Until today, 2 1/2 months later no news. Don't know lar, nasib lar i guess.

Ah Chanz, jokings aje, I know what you meant!

Mr. Lim - get the delivery tracking number from the store you bought the books from la. Elso no way they gonna find the books.

Ah Lim, ask me to order for you leh next time. I haven't lost anything yet in my years of buying stuff online :D

Got scammed a couple times, sure, but never lost anything yet that was shipped :)

Oh, I'm all grown up now and I know nobody ever becomes what they want to be when they're young. Worse, if they do, they'll most probably hate it!
