New lappie

"I wanted to bring back your work to do but I am using Mac at home and I am not used to using Office on it. Besides, its really slow if the file is too large."

I told my boss, thinking that he will spare me from working at home.

A couple of days later, he said.

"Iris, I am going to lend you a notebook, bring it home and finish up my work at home."

"Har, I am already like working a whole day in office and now you want me to work from home as well...."

He smiled and walked away.

A few hours later, my IT guy came over and configure a T43 for me. I almost thought my boss would forget about it.

It would be more tolerable if my effort is being appreciated, but alas...

I worked until 3am last night to finish up a presentation and the next morning, after submitting the work to my boss, he called me into his room and said.

"I have seen your presentation but lets just use back the old one, cos the first one was sent to them already and they are used to the first one."

I was so pissed that I got gastric the whole day.

I should have kept my bloody mouth shut instead of blabbling out...

What work is that? Thought can use keyworks for it at your mac which is much easier to use and faster too. Then covert it to ppt format for windoze use.

Anyway, you need to return the T43? If not use it as a coaster. Muahhahah
