Harrassment at Work

What would you classify as harrassment at work? I once got so mad at this operator where I worked because he called me AMOI. I told him "Apa Amoi, I got a name, ok?". I consider wolf calls and AMOI-ing harrassment at work. How about a promotion without an increment? What the *&^*&% is that? Think it's gonna pacify ppl to stay at that company? What about making you bring your own freaking toilet paper- as part of the company's conservation plan? What about promising a salary adjustment that eventually never happened? Malaysian companies can do just about anything they want...or they think they can....check this out. Go to Buruh Dept and enquire if you can actually sue the company for ill-treatment. Get smart.

one of my friends calls all young chinese girls Amoi. He thinks that he is giving them some kind of compliment.

Hi, I jumped blog here from Daniel's.

I, for one, like to be called by my name, too.

Sometimes someone would even addressed me as "Cha-bor". CIS! :(

I don't mind people calling me by my REAL name - Leng Cai. wuhahahaha...
