7 DaYS LaTeR...!!!


This is the place where I work, Petronas Gas Station. Well, the picture is actually taken from Google Images, but all Petronas gas station look the same so I might as well just take this photo. ivanjaya.net

After been working for several days now, I somehow know the reality of the working world. Being dishonest is like the norm here, especially when it comes to money and financial issue. ivanjaya.net Call me old-fashioned but as much as being open-minded, I still value the importance of being honest. ivanjaya.net

I try so hard not to be judgmental, but I just couldn't. Apparently, people around here think that it's okay for you to take things in the Mesra shop without even paying for them. ivanjaya.net They will go berserk when the bosses (we have a lot of bosses till I don't know which one is which) deduct the losses of item from their salary. ivanjaya.net I mean, the bosses have every right to do that as the staffs are the one who steal from the Mesra shop.

I am anticipating that when I get my first paycheck, my salary will be deducted as well even though I'm the only 99.99% honest employee around here. They will deduct all employees equally for the loss. ivanjaya.net Don't get me wrong, working here is such a great experience for me. Working with Kak Bunga (the supervisor), Eiqien (Mesra Shop Keeper), Teng (the friendly sweet cashier), Hadaha (the unhygienic cashier), Rafee (the always happy pump boy) and Ibarahim (the silent one) is fun, but honesty is always the issue here. ivanjaya.net Even the supervisor herself is not honest. ivanjaya.net

So far, Teng is the only person who is honest other than myself. She is the most friendly person at work. ivanjaya.net We always talk about things and I told her alone about the fact that I'm currently on my holidays and I won't be working here for long. ivanjaya.net She told me that it was a wise move not to tell about it Kak Bunga in the first place as they wouldn't hire me if they knew about it. She also told me not to tell Eiqien about it because she's close with Kak Bunga. ivanjaya.net

The only thing that I can't stand here is the fact that Hadaha is working as the same shift as I am. ivanjaya.net Okay, I didn't really want to look down on him but he was the one who wanted to mess with me. One things this green Earth know is, you don't mess with Iz Rijap...!!! ivanjaya.net You don't know what is he capable of. (This is just an irritated expression.) Since the first day I started working here, he's the only one who frankly shows the world how much he hates me. He even criticized me for being hygienic. ivanjaya.net Where the hell does that come from, huh...??? ivanjaya.net

I might not as "kampung" as he is, it's because we all are living in a freaking civilized city...!!! ivanjaya.net Even the real kampung people take good care of their hygiene. ivanjaya.net I just don't understand what kind of mindset does he possess. ivanjaya.net He always asks for my help, borrow my phone charger and everything I just couldn't list out but he never stops criticizing me for being myself. ivanjaya.net I wouldn't mind if he wants to correct me if I did anything wrong, and I barely speak with him now. ivanjaya.net He's new as I am, only he started working there 2 days earlier than I was and he's freaking younger than me...!!! ivanjaya.net

I thought the bosses had changed him to the night shift but he requested them not to do that because he just doesn't want to work at night. Maybe he has transportation problem. Seems that I need to be extra patient with this filthy guy in order to earn money at Petronas because I'm stuck with him. ivanjaya.net

Luckily, I will quit right after I get my 2nd paycheck on 15th June 2010...!!!ivanjaya.net
