A is for Attitude

A colleague told me that one of the bosses thinks I have an attitude problem. And what is The (Minor) Boss's legal basis? I asked. After all, my Mom still has this medal stashed somewhere: a medal that proudly proclaims that I was--ahem--third in conduct in the CM Kindergarten Class of '73.

As it turned out, The Boss was irritated because I "snubbed" him. He was calling me, he told the colleague, and I obviously heard him but I walked on. I do remember being in the corridor and hearing someone shouting "hoy" behind me. And since I thought "Hoy" couldn't possibly be me, I went about my business without bothering to look where--or from whom--that demanding "hoy" was coming from.

Now it can be told: I have an attitude problem because I have a name. And it's not "Hoy."

I agree with scrooch. Next time he calls you Hoy, turn around s.l.o.w.l.y. and say, "Bakit...mmmm....ahh...kuwan?"
