Increase in salary

on April-26-11

Time of the year for Performance Appraisal. How did I fare? I know that I did my best last year but the part of the pie that would complete that is somehow subjective. Behavioral grade might have some criteria but then again, the grader will have control over it. I am just hoping for the best since it would mean an increase in my salary.

Willie Revillame is under a big controversy again. I dare not to comment on it but yes, I was able to watch the video out of curiosity. I think that the host was just going with the flow that he was not able to think anymore that it might be too much already asking the boy to dance not just twice but I think more than four? Anyways, all of us do commit such acts from time to time when we get out of control without knowing that it might be in bad taste already in the eyes of other people.

Filipinos seem judgmental, if you are going to ask those pro-Willie. The other camp would say otherwise and would pretend to be moralist.

Anyways, it seemed that TV5 management is doing the right thing. It is but right to scold your employee but it does not mean that what he has done was the only thing that would be taken into consideration. It is but right for Willie’s company to back him up.

In this life, we need a strong support system. As they say, it should be for better or worse, if possible, not sacrificing the good of the many.

For the unexpected

on April-1-11

One of the occupations that I wanted before was to be sort of a banker. You know, count money and do have many cash inside my drawer. Oh, I love the smell of new paper bills and the gold and silver coins are attractive to me. I used to make blank paper money out of bond paper. Oh, how my Aunt scolded me for wasting the rims of coupon bonds in our study room. Then I grew up. I learned more about banking. I learned more about the valuable things that you can put in a bank. You can put there not just money and coins but also valuable pieces of jewelries, land titles, security certificates and others. It depends on the security box that you would get. Oh, how rich a bank maybe. Because of this, I imagine how dangerous bankers life maybe. Well, we have heard many cases of robbery in banks and those are really ugly, so to speak.

Well, my neighbor is still working in one of the most prestigious banks here in our country. I wonder if they have
bankers life and casualty at their company. Well, they must have. I salute all people who works in banks from the security guard to the president or anyone who holds the highest position in a working bank for that matter. Bankers are really one of our good neighbors as they serve as every time we go there , first to inquire, then to finally entrust them our money.

That reminds me, I have to go to the bank today. Well, gladly, there is no instance yet of robbery in the bank I go to. I hope there will be none. That made me think about insurance of banks. Well, its coverage in the sense that the customers or the depositors are also covered.

Anyways, I just wish everyone safe and in whatever occupation you are in, it is better to have some security for anything that is unexpected.
