Conversation Of The Day #2

Banquet Captain: "Eh boy, you got smoke or not?"

Me: "No, I don't smoke."

Banquet Captain: "Ah.. Okay. Good, good.. Eh, you got lighter?"

I've been kind of busy this week, hence the lack of posts. I'm going to watch Dim Sum Dollies later on with my super lovable girlfriend, since we heard that it's pretty good.

Alright then, I'll watch the latest episode of Gundam Seed Destiny now. Later.

Yeah, Your Banquet Captain's rather annoying.

Actually I don't understand why the great hype over Dim Sum Dollies. Everyone seems to be watching it. I think there're many other local plays which are way better than Dim Sum Dollies.

Should tell your captain, "Go near my ass, the fire comes out from there!"

You know, I can never comprehend the Gundam series, so darn confusing, all the alternate universe ... I gave up on it ages ago!

Jayaxe: Exactly. Maybe he was just asking it out of habit.

Ang Ku Kueh: What name? Say leh..

Stars of rain: Haha. But he's actually quite nice to work with.

The Rogue Slayer: I haven't any other local plays so I can't compare, but Dim Sum Dollies was quite good.

Lynne: This Gundam series is easier to understand. No alternate universe. Watch Gundam Seed and Gundam Seed Destiny, which is the follow-up to Gundam Seed.

Banquet Captain: I was actually expecting to get the lighter from you in times like that. I'm just a lowly part-timer. Haha.

the ratio of banquet captains to part-timers is roughly give or take 1:8, if all the part-timers come to me for lighter, i think i need to bring 10 lighters to work everyday... no very smart right? thats why u are part-timer and i am the captain. haha

Claris: Nah.. You're not getting old. I bet you wouldn't want to go back to doing the same old tiring work again.

Banquet Captain: Please la. Who say you must give lighters to all the part timers? How many does it take to light the fire? Give 1 fella can already what. Even if you give already don't know how to take back ah? No very smart right? Tsk tsk, giving away hotel property like that. No wonder you so long already only still Captain. Haha.

i need to take off my jacket and give u already. you the boss man! haha. try working 700 pax wedding dinner and count the number to tea light candles used up. i see how u light them all up alone. haha... wedding couple fuck finish u still lighting.

No very smart also right? and its part-timers like u always borrow things from captains already nvr return. lighters, pens, wine opener, skirting pins...

anyway i dun give away stuff, but pesky part-timers keep borrowin... then how? thats why u all must have OWN lighters... geddit geddit?

anyway... i buy my own lighters... hotels usually have endorsed lighters. no very smart again.

anyway u wldn't know how long i've been in banquet also... so... no very smart too.

its always banquet part-timers like u with such fucking bad attitude that give banquet pple such a bad reputation... think u know it all? try harder dude.

by the way... with over 100 part-timers in a wedding night, one third of them new faces, u expect me to remember who take my fucking lighter arh! siao...

work banquet less then half a year only so haolian already... no future one. must be humble.

Banquet Captain: Come on, don't tell me at a 700 pax wedding dinner you expect all the part timers to carry their own lighters? Besides, even it's 700 pax, if 10 to a table, there's only 70 tables. Give 5 or 6 fellas to light all can already. How long does it take to light 1 table? The couple you're talking about must be having a quickie or the guy had a premature ejeculation. Or maybe that's just the average duration of your sex time in bed. Hahahaha.

Don't like that accuse me leh. How you know I never return things? I always return what. It's bad to sterotype to you know. Tsk tsk..

What do you mean if part timers borrow then how? If part timers borrow something from you then that means you allowed them permission and access to do so isn't it? If you don't want to lend then just say no lor.

Huh? So you buy your own lighters and hotels usually have endorsed lighters... What's the link.. Hmm.. I know, you buy your specially endorsed lighters from the hotel!

Erm.. I don't think anyone really cares how long you've been in banquet. Out of point leh.

Relax la.. Don't like that say I got bad attitude leh. Who the one saying vulgarities here? Tsk tsk.. I always serve guest very friendly one. Of course I don't know it all, I'm only part timer. Very smart deduction. Duh.

Erm, I think if you wrote down the names of the part timers you gave it to, that wouldn't be a problem. Like that no need to waste any of the little remaining brain power.

"thats why u are part-timer and i am the captain. haha"
Is that what you call humility? No very smart you know. Hahahaha.

i am so entertained by u. u juz whack everything without thinking. if you juz wanna prove yourself mighty and superior, i rest my case. everyone was young and dangerous once before, i forgive u. haha. u obviously never tried turning a conference hall with theatre seating arrangement into a 70 table chinese dinner setting within 1 and half hours. i see how much time u have to light those bloody tea lights, dun forget the tao you and chilli padi... and also not miss out on your briefing with your captain. pls la.. u wanna win right... win lor... wanna whack... juz whack.

the one with premature ejeculation is you, cum so fast, got no time to think of your bloody actions. pls la... pay some fucking respect to seniors la. the hospitality industry was not built by you overnight la. don't bother replying to this comment. cos i not bothering to come back here anymore. u can prove your point to your other reads though. good bye and good luck.

Banquet Captain: How can I not comment? Banquet Captain leh. Very big rank leh, must reply one.

No problem man. I'm glad you're entertained. Why are you forgiving me? I never asked anything from you. But it's alright considering how with each comment you get more illogical and more out of point. I was just talking about a lighter from the beginning and now you're suddenly talking about everything from setting up a whole conference room to the little little chilli padi. Then say what I build the hospitality industry and all. Please do not state the obvious, of course I didn't build the hospitality industry overnight. Duh. Haiyah, if your superior never give you enough time or staff to set up the room, don't tell me, I cannot do anything. You can set up and blog and write about it if you want.

Just because you're senior doesn't mean I have to respect you. Respect is earned, not given. I've never even seen or met you. And from the basic respect I've showed you in my first reply, your following comment never showed any form of reciprocation at all.

If you think I'm replying because I'm trying to win, I'm not. No point winning anyway, got no prize. =( I'm replying because it's simple courtesy to respond to the comments left on one's blog.
