I am sooo HAPPY working as a CLERK!

Supergirlfriend just met up with a girl friend the other day.
And of course, being girls...we would proceed to chat about anything under the sky...

AND THEN, this topic came up.

She told me that she is sooooo contented working as a clerical staff and she even looked genuinely happy when talking abt it!

My jaw dropped. (no offence to all other clerks in the world)

What? I looked at her in disbelief. She'd probably didn't notice my expression as she carried on with her yadda yadda yadda about how near her work place is to her house, how convenient it was for her, how easy was her job and etc.

She's a degree holder. Yeah, no big deal these days. But it sure tells something! I spent nearly 20 years of your life studying to be a clerk? What the fcuk! Clerks became clerks because they lack qualification, and even they want to UPGRADE themselves. Not downgrade!

Haven't you got a dream? An aspiration? A desire to have a better life? Anything at all???

I guess that's not the case for her. At least she's somehow happy.

I feel sick. Maybe some girls are just waiting for a rich and handsome prince charming to sweep them off their feet, or maybe they just want a simple life. Count me out!

Maybe the clerk has another role, say, mistress to the boss or something along that line?

well, it's their choice, and maybe she's just contented with what she is having now...

haha..naughty thoughts there, jason. Well, I'm sure she has her own such 'plans'...haha.. :p

dreckker,'s really her own long as she's happy with it. But her kind of life and mentality is really not something I personally want to have. I don't appreciate stagnant life..It gets really boring sometimes.. :)

well... maybe she is just waiting for a rich prince to come or... she is rich herself?

I thought that's a stickgal at first glance.

Like the saying goes:
"Success is not the key to happiness.
Happiness is the key to success.
If you love what you are doing, you will be successful."

zewt, haha..I won't say she's exactly poor or anything otherwise that would sound cruel and demeaning. She's somewhat middle class-lah I suppose. So getting a rich prince fits the idea! :p

bacterium, I totally agree with you, but having known this girl, I would say that she's just lazy and uninspired. Well, but if she's ok with it, I'm ok too! It's her life anyway. Hehe.. :p
