Nuisance call from the Bank of China

Now, a call on my mobile from a lady speaking on behalf of the Bank of China. She is very loud. I put my mobile in the drawer and let her go on and on.
I saw Neurotic Boy and Mr Moustache from a distance a week ago.

Collecting debt

I am thinking of referring a case of late payment to a debt collection agency. That would in a sense ruin their credit rating.

Alternatively, I could apply in court and go seize the things in their homes.

Nuisance calls from Prudential and Worldwide Debts Collection Limited

Woo! A call from Prudential right now on my mobile. He asked if I had upgraded.. I interrupted him and asked him to explain what he meant and then left my mobile in my drawer as he went on and on and on. Whee! Awesome!

Yesterday, I received a call, 'I'm calling from the Worldwide Debts Collection Limited'... I let her go on and left the mobile in the drawer.

Last night, there was a call from Finexis and I also left my mobile in the drawer as the nuisance caller went on and on.

Spending a government grant

‎'Hello, I am calling from Ion Consultancy with regards to government grants?'

My reply, 'Didn't you call yesterday?'

'Urrrm.. sure, okay, good bye!'

Yes, it is one of those company who call up and tell you that they want to help you spend a potential government grant. She called up yesterday and I told her I wasn't interested and she forgot and she called again today. Doh.

Uses for people

Some people, of course, measure others for their uses.

The true colours

Have you ever known people who when they first met you, were earnest and seemingly sincere in knowing you and upon knowing you and knowing that you do not matter in the grand scheme of things* in their little world would discard you?

I have met a number of these people. Initially, when you meet them, they have not figured out how you could be of consequence, thus, they are wary and they play safe by their friendliness. Within months, they will have figured out the social dynamics in a group and they will stick to the so-called leaders and befriend them.

These people are everywhere now. I met a number over the past year and their true colours only begin to emerge lately. I can't say that I am surprised by the turn of events anymore.

*Essentially a nobody in their eyes.


Have you ever been invisible? Have you ever been invisible in a room full of people you know? Have you ever been invisible in a street of numerous acquaintances? This form of invisibility is more potent than the popularly imagined physical invisibility of that described by H. G. Wells.

Have you ever been dismissed with a glance and in seconds, thus turned invisible forever?

Such is the state of the world.
I have accomplished quite a bit this week. Listlessness banished. Work done. Whee!
Gonna go to a funeral later today.

Idiot from Great Eastern Life

Some idiot from Great Eastern Life just called. They don't give up, do they? I can't wait for the national 'do not call' database. I hope they get fined.
