"Please come on December 22 for a short meeting, which will start at 9AM". This was the text message that I received on the night of the 20th; I responded and said YES to my clinical coordinator, then I texted one of my colleagues about us to attend the meeting. This morning, she (Ms. CC) texted me saying the other colleagues won't go, so it will just be me and her. Then she texted again saying another colleague will attend the meeting. Punctuality even off duty, I arrived at 8:50AM and waited for my colleagues in the open canteen. (Image will follow later). A new male colleague came. then ms. CC came at 9:50. I told her she is late. The short meeting turned out to be the Christmas party of the college of Nursing. It was 'short' at 3 hours. And i thought the meeting was important. My schedule at home was disrupted; i should not have come if it was the party stated in the text.

have i known that twas a Christmas party, i should not have gone to school.Ms. CC, my colleague,, is not so punctual even during duty days, and i also often tell her that her tardiness will be reflected on the students' evaluation at the end of each semester
remember the post i made in the defunct Bubblews my lady? where i was side-swiped by the students who played a game and i was 'thrown' far from my seat? that was what i don't like to happen again. knowing the students will have parlor games, i would not want myself to be put into the same situation again, and besides, i do not like to be overjoyed, over-stressed, and i have to think too about my health concerns.
