A couple of weeks ago one of my junior staff sent me an email seeking urgent clarification for office matter. It was urgent of the utmost urgentestssss. I may have a BBM but i dont really read all emails esp from this person as it has a habit of copying me on every bloody correspondence esp the "noted" even if its an email exchange between It and another party.
Anyway i throw a bitch fit and ask as the best i can without killing it like a worm on a highway why It didnt just call me. "but i emailed you...", It bleated, as if an email sitting around in a 'SENT' box measn a reaffirmation of faith in technologies efforts of delivering effective communication between a flawed species inhabiting this world.
A coupla days ago, i am invited by a friend to her birthday party. Its a bar in someplace i've never been before., where only whispers of mutant 'dim sum' feeding on neighborhood Rottweilers are heard in the scared mutterings of police and postmen alike (yes Pos Malaysia is still in service).
The invite is on FB and i ask back for directions. No reply.
I sms her and ask for directions and get vague directions that seem to lead me to Bantang Berjuntai instead of a bar filled with hot bustiered women. I then say that i will try to get to general area but will call for directions. "no need la, just use GPS" comes the reply.
Why doesn't anyway want to speak anymore?
In the future when Malaysia's nuclear reactor goes FUCK, when there is no electricity and infrastructure to sustain that Ipad, Iphone, Ibollocks, two young boys will meet each other on a devasted landscape of a ruined city of Kajang. Debris whistles past them amid rubble from crumbled buildings. They will stare at each other, desperately trying to remember the lessons taught to them by their parents who in turn learnt the new means of communication in this devasted world from some unknown sources.
THey start communicating, banging their balls to a song of Morse Code, "gd aft, nd fnd food. M OTW hme. tc!"
Call 5 people today folks! Speak to them. Flirt, joke, laugh. just a minute conversation will do. And you better answer when i call...
