Smoke On The Water

Nothing much to blog about today. Been a little busy with my work. No, no, more work doesn't mean I'm getting any richer or anything. Just been working on the same job for ages. You know la, clients who cannot make up their mind. One minute they want this, when you give it to them, they come come back and say they want that ... siggghhh ...

So, I'm just going to keep this short. The good news is I can comment again so there goes my excuse not to comment in your blogs now ... LOL! No seriously, I'm glad I can comment again. It was frustrating while it lasted.

I've been feeling under the weather for the past two days and have now lost my voice. Been down with the flu, cough, fever, runny nose ... you know, the whole entire package. When it hits you, it hits you all at one go.

It's not good losing your voice especially when you're into client servicing. It's been a heck of a day just trying to communicate with people when no matter how hard you try, your voice comes out with nothing more than a hoarse whisper. And to make that worse, speaking on the telephone makes me sound like a pervert ... LOL!

Before I head to bed cos I'm feeling a little drowsy, I need to ask you all this question. Do you think it's proper for someone to light up a cigarette and smoke right in front of you in an enclose meeting room? Well, I for one think that it's totally inconsiderate of that person.

I met a client today and we were discussing about a print campaign when all of a sudden, he whips out a cigarette and lights up and starts puffing away without a care in the world. What made it worse was it was in a small enclosed room with no ventilation let alone windows!

I'm not a smoker, never was one and never will be. So you can imagine how pissed I was at this guys attitude. I had half a mind to walk right out of there, to hell with the job. All that smoke didn't help my sore throat one single bit. Why is it that smokers don't have any consideration for other people? Do they think I like smelling or inhaling that god awful second hand smoke that just came out from the inside of their bodies?

Well, I know for a fact that from now on I'll only be dealing with this client over the phone or through emails. I don't intend to get another barrage second hand smoke down my lungs, that's for sure. Ok, with that said and done, I bid you all a good night and for some of you, a good morning :D

And if you're wondering just what the heck my post title is all about, it really has no meaning. I couldn't think of anything better to put up there ... LOL!

  23. Nick, I hate such inconsiderate people and telling you the truth a lot of such people around. But being polite, I would not ask them to put off the light. What to do? I try not to inhale much.... :p Make me suffer for few minutes because of such people. And bad news is that we are higher risk of getting lung cancer than them....

  24. Glad you can comment again.

    My opinion - it was rude to smoke in an enclosed space. You may suffer from asthma, why didn't he take that into consideration? And the fact you don't want to stink of his fags!

    Hope you get on top of the cold.
