No Money

Happy Chinese New Year?


Our salary (for the month of January) is late. Although this is not the first time, but since CNY is just around the corner, things have been quite tight financially, and some of us are getting pretty desperate.

"We are working hard to raise the money." the boss told us.

But we need money for the CNY. Clothing, food stuff, angpows. Aiyo, like that die lar.

Then, the GM told us this when we asked him about the salary.

"We will be getting it this Saturday."

Huh? Saturday? But we don't work on Saturday. That means, if all goes well (fingers crossed), we only get it on Monday! And if you don't bring your account book on Monday, then you will need to wait for 3 working days for the cheque to clear. 3 working days... Monday ... Tuesday .... Wednesday. Okay....hmmmm....

Wait a minute. Wednesday's a holiday, Chinese New Year. So is Thursday, and Friday. Arghhh...!!!

*make note to self: Bring Account Book to office on Monday*

Mami was thinking of taking leave on Monday, the 7th. But another colleague commented "Ha ha if you need the money, have to come to work on Monday!"
