2014 roll up

Michael is an engineer who now works in Company T (and a father to an inquisitive 8 year old girl). He has been leading a few teams at Company T, and everyone is stoked to have such an awesome team lead at the helm. Everyone except one cocksucking loser which Michael had an unfortunate grouse with.

Sometime in the middle of the year, Michael was jolted from his daily world saving activities by an email from HR, and was prompted to attend an interview which Michael would describe as ‘very close to an uncomfortable interrogation’. Apparently, that dickwad team member who used to work in his team, not satisfied with the outcome of the first complaint to his manager (that was concluded to be a baseless complaint), made another official complaint to the HR before leaving. As a result of that, Michael got investigated for the second time in his Company T career over the same shit, and Michael had to give his statement like fucking broken record to the HR.

It was fortunate that the HR had the same finding about the case, and Michael was not charged with any crime. Loser on the other hand, had to be blacklisted from Company T. It’s going to be hard for that dickwad to return to this shithole to work ever again. Nevertheless, the whole episode kinda scarred Michael a little, for before that, he was eager to lead by example and wanted to inspire the younger generation to have better common sense (if not to attain better ability to overcome stupidity altogether)… but now, he constantly felt like needing to be left alone because he had lost hope with humanity after this grueling episode of encountering ungrateful little turds stabbing behind his nutsack.

As if this isn’t bad enough, Michael’s father in law’s health has been in the roller coaster status, and Michael has to drive 280 km every weekend back his wife’s hometown because the old man needed palliative care from a worsening kidneys function. And that basically spelled zero family weekend for him for the past half a year, and that pretty much had him in constant need of beer to alleviate his tension.

Nevertheless, all that didn’t totally ruin Michael’s shit a little. He chalked it up as part of trials and tribulations of life. What didn’t kill him, made him more mad. In 2015, he vowed to make a comeback at work to not be that nice to the little turds anymore. He’s going to squeeze them till they turn purple with an iron fist and let Darwin’s theory of natural selection take its own course. And in this year, he’s going to save up some moolah to renovate his other house, because he’s tired of digging out money. It’s time for him to get his shit together, and rent out the fucking place to contra his monthly loss to the bank. And then he’s going to get a new watch. And possibly, even a cool bike. Eat less pizza. Get an MBA… perhaps.
