Because I Need to Vent

Me: May issues ako sa speech nung guest speaker nung anniv party
Officemate: Nakinig ka?

See that's what I get for paying attention to the guest speaker. As if the entire day Friday was not stressful enough - power outages every couple of minutes and incessant incredulous demands in between - I attend the company anniversary party in an attempt to unwind and I get even more stress.

Imagine you're a dean from a prestigious university invited to deliver a speech at a company's anniversary party. Do you:

a) Talk about how proud you are of your school's alumni who are now running the company
b) Congratulate the company for its achievements
c) Talk about the importance of college education and how your university is aiming to be at par with the best schools in Asia

I mean, seriously.
