Action and Reaction

Or is it Active and Reactive? Whatever.

Today, some idiot from another department yelled at me on the phone, just because the Human Resource Department did not update their system. Idiot wanted to send me something (work-related) but was unable to locate me as I was just recently transferred to another department.

Firstly, he got mad when the something was returned to his department, reason being that there was no such person there (at the old address). Fair enough, I’d be mad, too.

Then, he yelled into my ear accusing me of not updating the Human Resource Department of my change of address. He yelled and yelled and honestly, I wanted to scream back at him, but with my colleagues around, I didn’t think it was wise.

However, I did raise my voice and told him in return, “HEY! WHY ARE YOU SCOLDING ME?! I’M PISSED OFF AS WELL BECAUSE NO ONE COULD TELL ME WHERE THE STUFF WAS! AND NOW YOU COME AND SCOLD ME?! I WANT TO SCOLD SOMEONE, TOO!”

“WHO SAYS IT’S MY DUTY TO UPDATE HR WHERE I AM! THEY SHOULD UPDATE THEIR SYSTEM!”

Bear in mind, however, the conversation was in Malay. If it were in English, I wouldn’t have been that polite.

He yelled again, that I just said, “You scold me, I scold you! Come lah!”
It is REALLY not easy to keep your calm when someone is yelling into your ear or face. F**king rude, man!

He eventually ran out of things to say and handed the receiver over to his colleague, who was much more polite. Yeah, things got sorted out, but I told him that for goodness sake, they got their instructions from the HR Department and it’s their fault for giving wrong instructions and not mine. Idiots! (I mean HR, of course.)

Anyway, all this yelling when I’ve got a sore throat made things worse. I went to the clinic for some medication and the doctor gave me was:

Err, I can walk into any 7-Eleven for this myself la, doctor!
-___- ||
p.s. OK, he gave me something called ‘Beazyme’ as well.

  2. YES!…this is definitly HR job.
    Human Resouce dept’s job is to manage the company’s human resource (i.e employees). How much more clearer can u get.
    Idiot scold you for nothing…probably what he should have done was to locate someone who was in your old dept to tell him which dept u moved to.

  3. Scuzzy: i’m sure it’s difficult to deal or work with big companies, but he should have chased the person who gave him instructions in the first place – that person gave him wrong address! sighhh
