Office Idiosyncrasies.

Ladies and gentlemen, meet the people of my good office. To protect myself against incriminating characteristics, names have been changed. All in good fun, of course.

Barok, Head Honcho. He was a champion ping-pong player during his high school years, but the total opposite in badminton. The one time he played, his wife started looking for another partner. He was so bad, he said, he started throwing the shuttlecock over the net.

Ferdie, Head IT Guy. His favorite station? 90.7, Love Radio. And he only chooses it with passengers in his car. Kelangan pa bang i-memorize yan?

Mon, Operations. He likes to run over slow-moving people crossing the streets and swerving over to the sidewalk, while laughing, swearing, and using sound effects at the same time. All in his imagination, of course. Rakrakan na!

Vid, Country Manager. Purveyor of the corniest jokes possible in this side of the planet. His most recent entry: Extra Joss, kung kulang sa religion. Leaving for South Africa on Friday.

Bakla, Software Engineer. During Vid's despedida, she gamely posed for modeling photos shot by Vid's good friend/photographer. She is also an endangered species.

Lasalista, Marketing. A beautiful girl with unusual characteristics. Once, she poked a karpintero in his stomach using a plastic bag (the one used for softdrinks) with a straw. She poked and screamed at him so hard, he had to ward off her jabs. Binastos kasi siya eh.

Jen, Content. Whenever she wears spag-strapped blouses, she always seems to bear the brunt of rude jokes. Once, while waiting for a ride, an FX slowed down and flashed the sign "L" (the universal sign for LOSER) at her repeatedly. She got so angry that she flashed, well, the middle finger at him and said, "Screw you!" Whereupon the driver rolled down his window and replied, "Mam, Landmark ho yung sinisignal ko." She apologized profusely.

Now aren't they interesting? They're loads of fun.
