Thorn Amongst Roses

It’s been close to a month since I moved on to greener pastures.

Life is better now. No more Hitler-like bosses. No more red tapes. But I do miss my friends back at my former workplace.

Anyway, for those who are not in the know, what’s so special about this pasture is that it’s full of roses. And by roses, I mean, ladies.

And yes, I am that thorn among the roses. Unfortunately, some of the ladies here see me as a thorn in the flesh. Ok, I may have exaggerated but these ladies were and still are taking some time to warm up to me.

My colleagues (current ones) told me that’s because the turnover here is so high that people do not dare to get chummy with newbies within their first month of employment. They will think, “What if he leaves within the month? Then what’s the point of befriending him?”

Sigh. Looks like socializing just got harder. But still -

No more Hitler-like bosses. No more red tapes.
