- 4:36 am. My wife woke me up at 4:36 am so I can prepare for work. I usually wake up at this time to prepare for work and leave at around 5:30 or so.
- At times, I should be at South Luzon Expressway when the clock hits 6am.
- I usually arrive Pasay Road not later than 7:30am.
- Around 7:40 to 8am, I should be riding the UV Express going to One Campus where I work for the biggest search engine in the world.
But today on January 17, 2018, something happened that me and my wave mates never expected to happen all of a sudden. Our schedule changed. Since Monday this week, we have been scheduled at 9am to 6pm. I know it is a 9 hour shift and it is fine with us. And to think that I also am enduring a painful sore on my left feet which gives me pain from my feet up. That gives me hard time walking around. Now, schedule changes for me is okay. I have been working in call centers before and it’s fine by me.
BUT this time, this one, is totally different. This schedule took effect TODAY, January 17, 2018. While I was on my way to work! Riding a bus! At 5:40am!
So I arrived in Makati City at around 7am, rode a UV Express van to One Campus and was at the office around 8am. Of course I was irritated and furious. I could have slept some more, take my daughter to school while my wife rests, spent some time with my kids, etc. BUT NO! Now I will have to stay here at the office until 10pm and probably be at home by 12mn.
THAT IS MIDNIGHT!
Sorry, I am still so frustrated about this. I really need to work on my own business so I won’t be played by some thug who thinks that it’s okay to just say “sorry” to people who wakes up at 3am just to be in the office by 9am. I did not even receive a phone call from the people who should have made the contact. In fact, the person who called me was a wave mate who is already on her way to go back to their house.
I am still irritated. Frustrated.
Geez. I just hope that this won’t happen again next time. For real.
