That One Time I Was Super Upset With One Of My Colleagues

I have a problem with one of my colleagues. This is something that I'm not really proud of because I usually blend quite well with other people most of the times. But this guy is an exception. He totally drives me crazy in a really really really bad way.

I even wrote series of tweets to convey my frustration. For your information, I only tweet when I am super happy, super sad, super mad, super confused, super frustrated and super others. Basically, I only tweet when I experience extreme emotion.

And, I am kind of people who try to avoid conflicts. I hate confrontation. Every time I do not feel satisfied or unhappy about something, I just shut my mouth and pretend like nothing happened. I usually walk away from said situation.

But this guy managed to press my angry button one night. I snapped big time! Well, he usually ticks me off by keeps asking, "Why I have to do this? Why I have to do that? Why I cannot do this? Why I cannot do that?" It is acceptable if he ask the question once in a while. But he asks the same question every freaking day. For god sake, we start working at the same day, but how come he does not know the answers to all his question?! 

But that's not the reason I snapped that night. I snapped because he made me feel like a beggar thrice that night.

Situation #1

"Can you help me to tie those towels? I did not have time to tie them just now."

"No!" (He answered without hesitation)

"What?! It's not that hard."

"I'm doing contract towels right now. I don't want things to get mixed up."

"Woah, really?! You know right there is no need for two people to do the same contract towels. And, it is freaking impossible to get those towels mixed up." 

"No. I'm not going to tie the towels."

"Fine then!"

Situation #2

"Can you help Jason tie the towels?" (Jason is my assistant manager if you don't remember)

"No, I don't want to."

"It does not matter if you want to or not. You should help him to tie the towels. For god sake, he's doing our job. You know he can just sit in his office and do his paperwork. Instead, he's feeding towels right now. You should help him!"

"I don't want to help him. He sent me to do this contract towels."

"Oh god! Really? As far as I know, he just sent one of you to do the contract towels. Not both of you."

"I'm still not gonna help him."

"Are you gonna act like this? You know what, I really feel like I'm a beggar right now. Asking for help from someone who will not help me." 

Situation #3 (This is when I snapped)

"So, you're not staying for overtime, right? Could you please send the wrinkled sheets or the napkins to the back before you heading home?"

"No, I don't want to."

"Really?! Then, could you please take out all the garbage then. Or could you help us cleaning up a little bit? It'll be hard for Sam and I to clean the whole place later if no one help us. It's gonna take you less than 10 minutes."

"No, I don't want to. Why should I?"

"Really?! You're asking me why?! Because we don't want Sandra to get mad at us! Because that's what we do here! That's our job! You get paid to do all these kind of stuff. And because we are a team. We help each other here!"

"No, I don't want to. I don't have to help you guys. They are not gonna pay for my extra 5 minutes."

"Fine then! Go and sign out now if you don't feel like helping us."

After 5 minutes.

"Why are you still here?"

"Well, I'm staying because I want to help Tash put the contracts in bag."

"Really?! You say no every time I asked you for help and make me feel like a beggar. And now, you're helping Tash even though she does not really need your help. We can help her if she needs our help. Just go and sign out now! Just go! Now!"

I still feel so bitter when I think about what happened that night. I don't like getting mad or yelling at people. I don't like being rude to other people but man, this guy made me do everything that I hate to do. May Allah grant me patience to handle this guy.

  1. Speechless.

    Maybe because I'm not used to say no to people's requests unless I really need to get something done.

    Maybe he has his right to say no, but I hope he does it with manners. Work is not something objective. My parents work till evening most of the days although the working hours are only till late afternoon. It is about commitment as well. -_-'

    2. Hanis, samalah kita. I'm not used to say no unless saya memang tak tahu nak buat benda yang disuruh tu. I guess that's why I feel so upset about this guy :(

      Geez, that's the thing. He straightly said no without manners. If he answered my requests with manner, I might not snap that night. I think manners and courtesy are not common anymore in today's world.

    3. Kak Aisya, I wish I can just ignore him. Tapi, nanti kita dilabel sebagai sombong. Tak pun, rude. And I think it's impossible to ignore him as we need to work together most of the times.

      While I'm not really sure if he's racist or not, I'm pretty sure he's such a sexist. Serious rasa marah membara tiap kali dia keluarkan sexist statements.

    1. Itulah kak Fiza. Niat tak nak mengungkit, tapi bila orang buat macam ni kat kita, terus rasa macam tak ikhlas dah dalam setiap pertolongan yang kita hulurkan dekat dia tu.

  3. Some people memang what we call 'hati kering' & 'kepala angin', suka ikut sedap sendiri tapi bila kena dekat orang lain dia nafikan.
    Bersabarlah. Itu petahanan sebenar.

  5. Biasalah, Farah. Dlm hidup kita memang akan cross paths dgn orang2 begini. They're simply broken & incorrigible.

    1. Saya sebenarnya jarang sangat meletup, kak Siti. Ini memang tak tahan dah, sebab tu meletup tu. Selalu saya diamkan je. Agaknya sebab selalu pendam tu yang tak tahan tu.
