just a chick from Trinidad writing about her life on a small island but with big dreams all the same.

Monday, January 30, 2006


A colleague of mine took a sick day to attend a fete and made the front page of one of our local newspapers.

I know I should not laugh but its too funny I don't know why people think in this small island of ours a person would even dare take a chance like that unless you are like me and can use your twin as a cover if you get caught.

So today we've been racking our brains trying to think of a good excuse he could use for being at that party the only thing we could come up with is that his doctor asked him to meet him at the fete to give him his medication but thats so weak another suggestion was on his way home he saw the crowd and did not realize it was a party he saw the crowd and wanted to find out what was going ,yeah thats weak too.

If you guys have any suggestions will really appreciate it what would you do in a situation like that ? I guess he could always say it wasn't him in the pic just someone who looks like him.

On the topic of work my boss sent me to a seminar recently and one of the things the lecturer told us was that people like me who work night shift no matter how healthy they are will cut six years out of their life just like that no matter how healthy you try to live he said our bodies were designed to sleep at night and it goes against nature working at night it scared the heck out of me because I LOVE working nights been doing it for almost 5 years now and can't imagine having to change now.

Lecturer too rude. Then all you have to do is find something which will add 6 years to your life, and that will compensate.

That has happened to a female colleague who was on 24 hour call and called in 'sick'. She turned up having her photo taken at a soca fete in bikini costume with drink in one hand and cigarette in the other the same night....full page photo! The photo was posted in Doctor's Quarters and someone who was working on the same duty firm captioned it "Sick Huh!"

Sorry, I nuh condone dem types of behaviour at all. People must live up to their responsibilities.
