Had dinner with LKK and Beanstalk today. I enjoyed it. It was nice hearing LKK share about how Kid’s Meal and him fell out, then sort of reached a truce. Don’t get me wrong. I’m not gloating over the friction they experienced. I’m juz glad that i learnt more about my colleagues today, and that everything’s been resolved. I was also surprised that Beanstalk observed Fillet to be a pampered person who expects to be spoon fed in everything. He hit the nail on the head!
I really hope Bigmac decides to let her go on gardening leave. Seems like she has a blog too and she has been badmouthing us on it. She also complained to Beanstalk and LKK previously that she didn’t get any bonus this year, and that no reason was given.
I can’t comment about the no reason part cos Bigmac told me it was cos she was still under probation, and that he gave her a raise when she was confirmed. I know that it’s not company policy not to give bonus just because a staff’s not confirmed but she really ought to reflect on her work performance. For someone who tells people that she understands credit structures but don’t understand how simple interest works, she should be ashamed of herself. Her slack attitude and unwillingness to learn is also something i find unacceptable. To her, work is a place you go to pass time, have a laugh, have coffee, etc. I find that totally unacceptable. What disgusts me most is that she is now painting the company in bad light 2nd influencing others to slack with her. Sigh.
Bigmac and i are meeting 2 candidates for a 2nd round interview on Fri. Told Bigmac i really don’t know how to choose between them so i really need his opinion on this. He said i should choose the one most similar to me cos i would want to propagate the same culture / value system as what i believe in in the department. That would be the candidate i met today, except he’s so good at smoking answers that i can’t tell if he means it. In Bigmac’s own words, i met my match. Haha. Anyway, i pray it all goes well!
