For the first time in quite a long time, I slept in a broad daylight and at 10 am! lol! It was good though, I didn't have to force myself to do it, it just happened and I am glad it did.
Back in my working life, I have met people who I have given names on my mind without anyone knowing it, oh well, scratch that, actually some became aware eventually, lol! And here are a few of them.
The yawner-sleeper. There was once a man in his late 40s who was on merchandising. There was never a day in the office that I didn't see him sleep on his desk even in the morning. Our office hours then start at 9 am but he keeps yawning loud (yes the yawn with a sound) and doesn't bother to cover his mouth when he does. Yes, expect to see the inside of his throat too, yikes! haha. It was just good he didn't sleep during his day-long wedding celebration :D
**Question, why do we tend to yawn too when we see others yawning? Or is it just me? I'm even yawning now as I type looking at the photo below, lol!
My artsy dahling. She was a real darling to me, so sweet and kind she instantly became my best friend in and out of the workplace, my shopping buddy, my food mate, and everything else. I also learned how to use graphic design software like CorelDraw and Photoshop back then because of her. I used to stand at the back of her chair when we were trying to come up with a design for our promotional packs and looking at how swift her fingers were on her keyboards, I became so fascinated and by simply spending time looking at her do her things, I learned some of her tricks. But anyway, I call her artsy because she was really good at what she does. She can transform a bland photo into something mesmerizing and alive.
Miss Naughty Sunshine. There was a new lady, who had a tiny frame just like mine, hired as the main office's receptionist. At first, I was adamant about her being able to do the job because she was very quiet, timid, and looking so serious. But oh boy, those were ultimately wrong impressions that never lasted. The moment she started working and got to know everybody else, there isn't any boring time because of her naughtiness, well, except when the big boss was around that we needed to be serious, lol! She seems to have a joke for every word she hears and wasn't so reserved in blurting them out, and mostly green ones. Lol!
Jack of all trades. His English name was literally Jack. He can speak little English but tries really hard. The reason I named him such is that he always seems to have a solution to every glitch the office encounters. He was in the merchandising team but he became all-around because of his resourcefulness and voluntarism. He goes out of his way to make others feel good. Usually goes around at everyone's table before lunch and takes their lunch orders, and calls in for delivery. When we are anxiously awaiting some parcels that seem to be taking so long to arrive, he volunteers to pick them up at the courier branch and comes back just in time.
At the farm, there were also people who came along over the years. Most were from different places (some even from Mindanao) who come here to earn their living. Some left their families from afar so they could provide for them and I have encountered most and also have named them names based on how I perceive them to be.
There was 'Larry the Great', a young lad who sought employment from my old folks some years ago. He works really hard and honestly too. He would always go to the farm earlier than everybody and comes home late. The old man would just be so surprised when he'd be asking for what else to do. He was too focused on every job he does and finishes them sooner than when the old man expects them to be done. He has become my old man's favorite and brags about him to others. Unfortunately, when Larry has saved enough money, he bade goodbye and went back to their province after almost 4 years of staying with the family.
The Little Brat. I had given this name to a 17-year-old guy who stands a little less than 5 feet, came in place of his brother-in-law. Turned out, 'Larry the Great' married the little brat's sister and Larry was the one who sent him to us. At first, he was okay, seemed eager and willing to learn. But as time passed by and became friends with neighbors who often drink hard liquor, his not-so-good manners came about, didn't do well in his job, and even talked back to the old man. He eventually left for good just a year after coming over.
The ML Boys. They all came from LU and work for my younger brother. They arrived before Mobile Legends became a hit and stayed long. They were addicted to the game and would play from sundown until the wee hours of the night and at times don't even sleep to the extent they would forget about their tasks the next day and my brother would be so mad when they didn't get to finish what he had tasked them to do.
This I use here at read cash and on noise, and also noticed others like Ms. Jane and Ms. Bloghound use it. This to me refers to all users but is most specific to wonderful writers, readers, upvoters, commenters, sponsors, and those who support the community in general, those who don't just think about themselves but others too. Yes, You who are reading this... and You who is smiling... and Yes YOU who I am grateful to... Thank you, beautiful soul!
Note: The above are some of my own ways of naming or labeling people in some nice, subtle way to identify them with their prominent traits.
This would be my entry to the writing prompt #11: Labels. Do give it a try.
