Mr. Freeze

Phew, it's been a heck of a week for me. I knew we were going to be busy after the Chinese New Year holidays but I didn't know we were going to be so darned busy that I don't have time to even blog as much as I used too. I suppose that's a good sign really, not the part about not being able to blog, the part about being busy cos that means I still have a job ... LOL! The times are bad out there and trying to stay in business is tough so the busier I am, the better it is for me and the company I guess.

I know I've been saying what a cool boss I have, well if he gets any cooler I'm going to be calling him Mr. Freeze cos just the other day I was saying that I need to get a lap top one day and you know what he did? He just took his MacBook and gave it to me and said he'll go and buy a laptop for his own use! Now, I was utterly speechless and it takes a lot to make a big mouth like me speechless.


I honestly thought he was joking but when he started copying all his files into his portable hard disk and started clearing out the junk on his MacBook, I knew he was serious. And I must say I'm absolutely delighted by it. I've always wanted to have a MacBook of my own and now I have one :D Gee, I'm beginning to really, really like this boss. And no, not in the kind of way you filthy perverts are thinking ... LOL! I am after all a straight married man, ok!

I honestly don't know what to say except that I most definitely think I made the right choice in quitting my old job. I've worked in my ex-company for close to 6 years and I never got anything really much from them but just working in this new office for close to 3 months and I already have another TV at home and a MacBook, not to mention the really flexible hours I get. At least he knows he'll get my undying dedication when it comes to work.

I wondering what else he'll give me next? Maybe if I complained loud enough about a new car or a house, he'll just come up to me and say,

'Nick, take my car and house, I'll just go buy a new one ...'

LOL! Now that would be something to shout about. Ok, ok maybe I am getting a little way ahead of me in the dreams department. At least now I don't have to fight with wifey for computer time at home ... hehehe ... The only thing is I need to configure this MacBook for internet access at home and I don't have a wireless router just yet. And wireless routers are not really cheap. I wonder if I should bring that up with my boss too ... LOL!

  33. Is he young, or old?

    I bet he is youngish, because older bosses are usually less friendly, let alone so generous.
