[Volume 8 Issue 6, #1731]
我相信呢一款水機喺辦公室應該係好普遍.. 呢一桶桶成廿公升嘅水, 相信好多OL連拎都拎唔起, 莫講要抬上嚟擺喺部水機上.. 咁耐以嚟, 我只有一位女同事係能夠做到咋, 而且佢仲係標準身, 可見佢非一半纖纖弱質女子呀, 失敬!! 又或者OL都需要喺別人面前扮嘢, 所以呢啲粗重工夫都係勞煩男同事喇, 哈哈!! 不過我想講嘅係, 女士們呀, 你哋要勞煩男同事換水桶, 唔該唔好淨係得把口.. 個空水桶呢, 其實你哋實有力拎得走, 好等男同事能夠更方便將新嘅一桶水裝上水機囉.. 有實際行動表示你有幫手, 我覺得會更受男士歡迎!! 而各位男士們呀, 唔好諗住喺女同事面前演嘢, 稍為彎下身子就想托起個水桶.. 咁樣對你條腰同脊椎有百害而無一利呀, 應該儘量降低你嘅身體, 跟住先慢慢企返起嚟, 始終都係自己要緊呀!! 今日借水機發揮, 講男講女唔知會唔會引起一場兩性罵戰呢?? 呵呵~~ :D
i believe this kind of water dispenser is quite common in offices.. i also believe most ladies may not even be able to move those bottles of almost 20-litres of water, not to mention lift them up and place them onto the water dispenser.. so far there is just one female friend of mine who can do this, but she is just of normal size, definitely not a weak lady we can perceived huh?? thumbs up!! or perhaps ladies are just trying to act weak in front of guys, hence they will just get other male colleagues to do the work for them, haha!! but what i wanted to say is, ladies, when you are asking your colleague to change the bottle of water, don't just ask.. i am sure you are able to remove that empty bottle from the dispenser, and this gesture would surely make things more convenient for your colleague to place a new bottle onto the machine.. with a request that comes with actual action to help, i am sure you'd be liked!! and gentlemen, don't think of showing off in front of the ladies, just bending your body to pick up the bottle is going to hurt your spine.. instead, lower your body as much as you could, grab the bottle and slowly rise, your ownself is always more important!! inspired by water dispenser to talk about the two genders today, i wonder if i would create a gender war in the comments space later?? haha~~ :D

    1. Yea, that's to protect our bones.. Must remember it, especially the elderly, hehe.

      Delete
    2. Protect bones by exercising & making sure enough calcium intake. More sedentary you are, more brittle your bones can be. :)

    3. Good advice/reminder about the correct way of lifting heavy objects. Slip-disk can be a lifelong problem.

      Hey, you said 'male colleagues to do the work for them' as though the guys don't drink the water? tsk!

  2. 20 lit could be a heavy load guess the ladies are more worried about their finger nails and not on the weight. No?

  4. That's what men are for...true blue gentlemen. You're one, the knight in shining armour, aren't you, SK?

    And that reminds me of a quotation:
    Once a king, always a king but once a knight...is enough! Muahahahahaha!!!!

    1. Oh you just said it!!! SK is definitely the one, the knight in shining armour!!! He is!

    4. My wife always told me that it is very harmful to drink R.O. water which can damage our cells in the long run. So I always buy Natural Mineral Water bottles instead.

  6. Good morning SK!

    Speaking of ladies and gentlemen huh? Hehe, reminds me of the song Gentlemen from uncle PSY, hehe xD

    1. There's this dispenser at my place too! But we use the 9-litres one, so me still able to carry and change.. But those 20-litres one, have to ask my hubs to do it.

      Delete
    2. Yea, I agree with you. If we are asking someone to help and change the bottle, at least remove the empty one first (simply because it's so easy) so that that person can directly put the new one into the dispenser. I do that all the time, hehe.

      Delete
    3. And true, don't try to be action, bend down the knees and carry the bottle slowly into the dispenser, that's the right way whenever we are picking up something heavy from the floor.

      Delete
    4. true, we ladies shouldn't bend and lift something heavy just like that. It might hurt our spine.

      Delete
  7. nowadays, hard to find gentleman already. The guy sitting ib front of me would not blink an eye or offer help if he sees female colleagues hauling things. Even if got internal makan makan, he'd just wait until other colleagues finish setting up the table/good and wait till someone call him to eat. *slap forehead*

    1. I also see many pretenders in my office too. Anay would yell at those guys loudly to help out. They like to buat tak tahu and my office female staff are all small pint sizes while the men are big armed. Good for nothing men!

      Delete
    2. Everyone should help out a be it ladies or man. If can carry heavy then carry lor if cannot then help in other ways la.

      Nobody likes it if the fella just sat there and look.

      Delete
    3. I always like to see friends and colleagues having the team work spirits. Sadly humans like to sit and wait like the SOMEBODY waiting for ANYBODY theories. In the end NOBODY does it.

      Delete
    4. Here in my office, the senior staff all OK one.

      The youngsters OTOH, more selfish.

      Won't do anything unless being told to do so.

      I guess their upbringing doesn't encourage them to be more involved and proactive in things other than the ones that affect them directly? :(

      Delete
  8. Good morning, SK and all! Well, if I have such water dispenser, I would definitely do it on my own. Unless it's really that difficult. Anyway, it's not impossible. It's just whether we can or can't.

    1. Anyway it's also a good gesture for guys should they see any ladies trying to lift that heavy bottle.

  15. If we asked people to help, we must always think is it convenient for people to do so. At least work together to solve the matter. Not only seat down and look at people doing.

    2. I'm happy if a gentlemen can come over and offer to help. But ladies, please do not pretend. If you can do it, just do it yourself and don't wait for man.

      Delete
    3. Men must be ready all the time to help the ladies, you are the chosen one, if not who else can?

  16. Me, cannot depend on Boss driver oso. Always show unhappy face if ask help not related or seen by the boss.

    So damn calculative. :(

    ReplyDelete
  17. Good advice, SK! Yes, never lift up heavy things just by bending over the body.. must lower ourselves..but sometimes I tend to forget too...
    My office is using something like that but minus the bottle... we get the water straight from the tap and filtered through that big thing there.. :)

  18. Aiyo, some girls love to pretend like "so heavy, so heavy, can't carry!" (even though is just an empty bottle)

  27. How I wish I have this kind of water dispenser in my new office. Now, I need to walk a bit to the pantry to refill my cup. That is the time I will invite Ah Hua for a short walk with me.

    If i have this kind of water dispenser, i will polite ask a man to help me, and I will say thank you. I will bake cake for him on the next day.
