The next day, we summoned our courage to ask our "beloved" supervisor, the Lazy-One or Mr.Nicholas to approve our application. Once again, we were given half an hour of harsh lecture (more like scolding) that we can't apply leave. Lesson learnt; Legend Trainees have no rights. Even the janitors can apply for leave but not us. We have to work without pay for long hours and get scolding for fun. At the end of that day, Mr.Lazy-One was struck by some lightning or must have hit his head hard because he asked both of us to reduce our application from a week to three days. The reason was that it was easier for him to push our application through. Lame. Mr.Arrogant-One already approved our leave on condition that Mr.Lazy-One approves too. Lesson learnt; Mr.Lazy-One must embark on a journey to recover his courage (better known as 'balls' or testicles) so that he can once more have the guts to make decisions on his own.
Oh, did I forget to mention the food in our Legenda Cafe has deteriorated to a point that the food is only fit for dogs? They no longer follow the menu and the continuous onslaught of curry and spicy dishes everyday has turned my digestive system into battle-hardened-gastronomic- units. Now, thanks to Legend's legendary shitty cafeteria, I have been immunized against all spicy food. Once again, I owe all this to Legend Hotel, the place to be if you want to get accustomed to Malaysian's spicy delicacies.
Today, my fellow trainee,
Me: Sir,the server is not assigning IP to this laptop.
Mr.Lazy-One: Is the network cable plugged in or not?
Me: ... ... ... Yes (I almost blurted out...You think I am so fucking stupid as not to check that?)
Mr.Lazy-One: The network card got light blinking or not?
Me: DUH!!!!! IT'S THE FUCKING SERVER NOT ASSIGNING IP!!!! What the fuck!?(Well, I wanted to say that. Fortunately I didn't) Yes sir.
Mr.Lazy-One: Try restarting the computer and see
Me: Already done that. (Rolling my eyes and banging my fists on the table) Still doesn't work
Mr.Lazy-One: Ok, you come down and take our laptop and go test it out.
Me: Yes sir.
Thank God it was already lunch time and Ms.Lee Yen told me to go grab lunch first before returning to finish the job. I already lost 10 minutes of my lunch time no thanks to this. After lunch, I loitered around The Mall until it was 2pm and returned to office. Luckily, Mr.Senior-Officer helped me to complete the task since I had to complete installing all the necessary stuff into the PC assigned to me. Mr.Lazy-One on the other hand, was furiously typing on his keyboard. Woa...he is actually working for once! An hour later, he was still furiously fingering his keyboard. I noticed that his fingers were fixated on the arrow keys and the left side of the keyboard. I snuck behind the huge UPS to get a glimpse on what he was busy doing, to my suprise, that bastard was playing a tennis game! What the fuck!? Mr.Senior-Officer,
I was damn furious over this but since he was my supervisor, I can't just blurt out and screw him. I kept quiet and went on with my work. Lesson learnt; Managers or supervisors are there to sit back and relax as he instructs his subordinates to do all his work. Mental note to self; Do what I can (ethically) to get my way to the top so that I can earn a fat paycheck and let everyone below me do my work.
Conclusion? Legend Hotel is truly a shitty place to work in. Well, to be fair, it's probably just the Finance and IT division. One thing is for sure, I am never going to work in this hell-hole unless it's the last place on Earth where I can work. Legend Hotel, the truly legendary shit-hole of a workplace.
