Short end of the stick....
April 15, 2010 12:39am CST
This is basically a gripe post. Do you ever feel that sometimes, life is always handing you the short end of the stick? Where no matter what you do, be it you are the one providing the service, or the one getting the service, you are always getting short changed for it! Such that, when you make a mistake, you have to bear the brunt of the consequence. AND when you are the one paying for the service, you have to pay for the consequence of the person who fudged up his work while supposedly taking YOUR money to provide a said service? In such instances, what do you do? What can you do to right this injustice to you, especially when you are the pay master of the service that was suppose to be rendered to you?!?

Never be afraid of adversities in our everyday life. Life is full of struggle and challenges. Never accept anything as defeat. Remember, when one door closes, another opens. Most successful people succeeded in this world because they refused to dwell on negativities. It is possible to come back stronger from every adverse situation. The setbacks or un-satisfactions that you have in life will awaken the giant within you and help you reach greater heights. Make use of our God gifted minds and channel them the way you want to.

haha =D Take it in my stride if there's nothing much i can do about it.. Sometimes, we are just so unlucky to be 'shortchanged' when it comes to us.. Thus other than taking it, what else can we do?? MAke a fuss over it?? Though we will feel better after kicking a fuss, but that does not mean it wont happen the next time again.. hehe ^_^ SO, i will rather blame it on luck instead.. hehe

YEah, but this is life.. Just accept it and move on.. IF we were to ask or argue too much, it might seem that we are being petty or calculative, just because they are not us, and they wont know how we feel about such happenings.. haha

ahgong, I am not sure exactly what had happened and I just believe that there's always a solution. You probably have to look around and look deeper. Somehow, I just feel that there's a lot of nitty-gritty follow ups or complex bureaucracy that is discouraging you. Sometimes, you just need to grit your teeth and go through with it. Persist to the end. Take care.
