Okay anyways back to blog....
I find something a bit unnerving at my work. The boss and my colleagues call me "Lord" at work. When I walk, my boss will say, "Open the corridor for The Lord is walking!" Or when we eat out my colleagues will say, "Bring the meat! The Lord loves his steak juicy and hot!"
This started after my first month at work. I really didn't know why I'm being called like this. (I know my boss and colleagues love joking and they mean no harm)
Since I wanted to know why, I asked my boss as to why my nickname came to be, and he relayed me a few episodes in the past.
Boss: I can't believe that delivery company! They withdrew money from my bank account without me knowing!
Colleague: Thats terrible!
Colleague2: You should use somewhere else!
Boss: What do you think ramenanmitsu?
Me: You're the one who's going to lose money right? Not me. So why would I think anything about it?
Boss: Yeah.....you are right.
Boss: Damn! I got bitten by a mosquito!
Boss: You might get bitten as well!
Me: WHAT!! How come you didn't kill it!? Give me the spray! I do not want to get bitten by Mosquitos. You don't know what disease they may be carrying!
And some few other episodes...
Anyways after I heard it, all I thought was, "that's it!?"
Come on, caring about your own well being over others is natural human behavior. No one in the world would people care about their boss more than themselves. I am being called a "Lord" for showing natural human behavior.
I think the people in my workplace are really weird. But they're okay I guess.
