My husband went home late last night and I have no idea why. Usually he's in the house by 8 PM but last night it's already 8:30 PM and still he's not here. I am a bit worried but at the same time I still try to be positive like thinking maybe they have a meeting or maybe he waited for my sister to go home also.
Then finally he heard the sound of his motorcycle and we went to the sala so that the kids will make bless ( sign of respect in Filipino ) to his father. Then I asked him why he came home late and he told me something happened on the the supermarket. My husband is working as a civilian guard in one of the supermarket here in our town. He was working as a civilian intelligence for almost a year. Last December to be exact.
Then I asked him what happened and he said theres a syndicate who enter the supermarket and one of the customer lost her phone and he didn't noticed it. He was so disappointed to himself because he feel like he didn't perform his job well. Then I told him that's life. He told me that he's alone that time and he also following a group of LGBT that looks suspicious that's why he didn't noticed the another group of people that was the syndicate but he noticed by seeing the unorganized stuff in the supermarket , there's something going here.
He was so affected of what happened and told him not to think of it and if it's work matter he should leave it in work because he is on the house already. Then I told him not to stress himself on the things that he can't control. @Eylz2021 I learned something on your article haha. Then he told me that I am right and give me an example about the thing that makes us stress even if we do t have control on it.
Example is when you are on your way work and then the rain pours and then the heavy traffic started then you start to be annoyed and got stress because you think about it but the reality is that you only make yourself stress because even if you think it that much you can never do something about it aside from waiting the rain to stop and turned the heavy traffic to moderate.
I also told him that it's already done and he can't do anything to change it that why don't stress himself. I told him to focus on the future and it's not the end of the world. Maybe the syndicate will back on the next days and then he can caught them just like what happened on him a month ago.
So this incident happened a month ago and he was so humiliated because someone point his finger to him. So as a civilian intelligence they have a training to know if the customer has a hidden agenda. They will notice the action of the customer and they consider it as a red flag. So on that incident , he already had a gut feeling because a man has acting strange while on the supermarket and as a CI he followed it secretly but because the man was guilty , he confront my husband and said , why you always following me? I know who you are and it's obvious. " . Then my husband didn't say anything bad and said it's just coincidence.
Then because of the incident, he requested to review the CCTV and found out that the man was putting something on his pocket and then the next day the man went to the supermarket again and hot caught. And because of that he was happy.
Back to the topic.
So he was sad because of what happened and aside from telling him encouragement I also make a joke that work according to his salary and don't overdo his job. Then he asked me " Sa sweldo lang ba talaga iaayon ang lahat? '. My goodness my husband is a good man and put his heart on his work also and I was laughing and said Yes. Just chill and dont think about the past and focus on the future.
Then earlier , he seems fine because he told me that her manager said that it's okay because he's the only one CI that time. And then he said he will not mentioned about it again instead he will try harder.
Thank you for reading.
