That One Time James Promised Me That I Will Have A Good Night

That one time James promised me that I will have a good night, I scoffed at him. Literally. Sorry James!

The next day after I snapped big time as mentioned in That One Time I Was Super Upset With One Of My Colleagues, James asked me to see him. My thoughts at that time; "Habislah aku! Mesti kena tindakan disiplin sebab bergaduh dengan rakan sekerja."

"How are you, Farah?"

"I'm good! Thanks. How about you?"

"I'm good. Thanks. How was last night? Was it hard for you?" 

"Honestly, it was hard for me. I was asked to stay for overtime but the machine was not working for almost my entire overtime shift."

"Was it just because of the machine or was there something else made you upset last night?"

"Uh-oh! Did someone say something to you? (I took few steps back from James) Someone must have said something to you." 

"(James nodded his head) Yes, Farah. Yes. I know what happened last night. But you don't have to worry. I am so sorry for what happened last night. Both machine and the situation that you were in."

"No, you don't have to say sorry. It's not your fault. You were not even here last night."

James smiled and then he further asked a question. The real reason why he asked me to see him. Dialog atas tu hanya untuk berbasa-basi sahaja. Almaklumlah, James ni polite sangat.

"Hmmm Farah, can you come back at 2 PM? T is working alone at 2 PM and as you know we need at least 2 people for every shift."

"Huh? You want me to come back at 2 PM? But, I have already signed in." (I guess I looked mad when I said this to him - My shift started at 1 PM. So going back just to come back an hour later was not my ideal option)

"Okay. Okay. Hmmm, can you stay until 10:30 PM tonight, then?" (James had this guilty face when he asked me the question)

"Yeah, I can stay until 10:30."

"Thanks Farah. You're the best!"

Then, I started working as usual. When I was 1/4 done with my shift for that day, James came to me and said, "Don't worry, Farah. I will make sure you will have a good night, tonight." And I was like, "Huh? Apa benda yang kau mengarut ni James?" James noticed my confused look and he then explained to me what he meant by that. 

"I'm gonna make you feel happy, Farah. I will make sure that T works really hard tonight. I'm not gonna let him lazying around."

T is the guy that made me upset by the way.

I scoffed when I heard the explanation. I was thinking to myself, "Yalah tu, James. As if I will have a good night. Kau bukannya akan stay sampai malam pun. Kau blah nanti, balik semulalah perangai T tu."

But to my surprise, James did stay until later that night. And, he did fulfill his promise to me. In a way, I think he's kinda bullying T. I felt so bad for T but I did secretly enjoy what James did to him. Ish ish ish. Maaflah ya, saya ni manusia biasa.

"T, faster! Faster!"

"T, you're gonna receive for the whole day."

"T, why you cannot keep up with the speed?"

"T, you have to go faster. You have to keep up with Farah's pace. She's gonna feed fast."

"T, you cannot be lazy today."

"T, you have to clean up this whole building with Farah. Do not let her clean up the building by herself."

"Farah, don't go slow. Just go with your usual speed. Do not slow down. It's even better if you can increase your speed. Let's make him suffer tonight."

I laughed so hard at the ridiculous situation. James kept calling T's name. He kept pointing out all T's mistakes. Kalau sayalah yang berada dekat tempat T masa tu, mahu jadi gila. Asyik-asyik dipanggil dan ditegur. And I will probably hate James if he did the same thing to me. Thank god I am in James' good books. Takdelah kena macam tu.

But honestly, James totally turned that night to one of my best nights in my department. Thank you, James! Will be forever grateful for that night :)

    1. He is indeed very nice. Tu yang susah nak move on tu bila dia dah takde. Sikit-sikit "I wish James was here" bila ada konflik berlaku dalam department tu. Bukan saya seorang je. My senior colleagues pun asyik cakap benda yang sama je.

    1. lol! Ini lawak sangat, kak Farrah. Tak tahulah macam mana reaction dia masa tu. Sebab saya memang menjauhkan diri daripada T hari tu. Saya tak pandang pun muka dia hari tu. Tapi, dengar kata, dia agak bengang juga sebab James asyik sebut nama dia je. Sikit-sikit T, sikit-sikit T.

    1. Bagi saya, James handsome. Tapi, tak handsome sangat. Dia jenis handsome yang biasa-biasa je. Faham ke? hahahahaha.

      Bagi saya, James ni kira muda lagilah. Dia baru 28.
