31.05.2012 | 將心比心

[Volume 7 Issue 5, #1431]
仍然好數年前嘅某日請咗病假, 大老細得罪個客, 無啦啦燒到我嗰搭, 毫無諒解之心仲聲大夾惡打畀我, 病到瘟瘟墩墩都要我搵個客搞掂件事.. 我覺得好唔尊重, 好唔合理, 好過份!! 整件事令我非常之鄙視佢.. 坦白講, 我幾抗拒放假或工作時間以外, 有人打電話畀我講工作上嘅嘢.. 將心比心吖, 有邊個鐘意被打擾架?? 所以如果知道同事/老細/客戶放假, 我絕對唔想破壞人哋個holiday mood囉.. 呢啲基本嘅尊重, 就偏偏有好多人忽視, 悲哉..
i still remember on a sick day few years back, my new boss stirred up a storm in a teacup with a client and get me involved for no reason.. without any sympathy he called me up and wanted me to settle things with the client even if i was sick.. i think he was very unreasonable, disrespectful and a piss-off!! since then i really despised him.. frankly, i am very reluctant to calls on work while i'm on leave or outside working hours.. put yourself into the shoes of others, i guess nobody likes to be disturbed right?? that is why if i knew colleagues/ bosses/ clients are out of office, i would not like to spoil their holiday mood at all.. but regret to say, this very simple and basic respect is often being ignored by many, how sad..

  4. Happens all the time - those on top think they can throw their weight around as they like. Ain't so bad if they show their appreciation - more often than not, they just take it for granted. If they do not criticise and condemn you, you can be thankful already for God's small mercies... But that's life! What to do? Just count whatever little blessings we get, close our eyes to the rest...

    2. My work doesn't require me to standby 24/7, hence I hardly receive such calls.

      Last time I received calls from office on my off-day, but I grumbled and complained so now my superior is more understanding. Thank God~

  48. have to be more sensitive when come to global workforce... why? you might schedule a call when people having dinner or lunch.

    there is one group of people i don't really like. they came in office around 11am and expected us in Malaysia schedule a meeting on 5pm. hey that's my gym time eh~

    initially i was so sensitive and tried not to schedule meeting during their lunch.. but after that who cares?

    1. Chinapek company is like that.

      The same goes to my workplace here - If you can survived here, you can survive anywhere in the world. Because we get harsh treatment here. Bosses are cold-blooded vampires, suck all the energy, we work like cows and the pay is so-so only.

  70. 他们也是将心比心啊!
    就想因为他们自己也是无时无刻接顾客电话,
    所以认为全世界的人都应该以他们为榜样,
    你不接电话,还要讲你没责任心呢~~~

    除非同事交代,有事可以打电话给他们,
    不然我也很少会在人家休假的时候去打扰人家。
