Why?

This morning, I really intended to go to a super mall here because the group of part-time clinical instructors (the 6 of us) should be having our “Christmas party”. I begged off because first- it is my sister’s birthday, and second, I have no budget to join them since I am on training and I am not paid for that. I was able to get fixed before 10AM and good thing I opened my Facebook on chat. I then read this message from my colleague Miss CC. the conversation went this way (just a portion of the chat translated in English): “CC: Mudra, we won’t continue today but on the 26th because Miss AUA is going to P_ _ _ (her hometown); Me: Haaa? I have already changed my clothes. My powder and lipstick are now useless. I won’t join anyway. Isn’t it I have no money? Hahah! I will just give my gift. If you always postpone, nothing will happen”. Miss CC said 26th, she won’t be around since it is a feast day of a locality here and their family is going. Miss LM also said they will have it on the 27th; I therefore asked them why they don’t have a consensus when they will meet? I am thinking they won’t arrive at a common date because each one of us has our own activities to attend to. Even with just a group of 6, there are disagreements.

It can be difficult finding a date to suit all of the 6 people. Happy Christmas Ingrid.

Christmas activities is more often focus on our own family rather than that of our friends. Maybe you can find the time to get together with your barkada (gang of friends) after the holiday seasons?

I have always spent the Christmas days with my family only. I see friends after Christmas.

@m_audrey6788 the usual. mass then lunch in Cabalen, but we had breakfast at Max's which i think should not be repeated again. imagine the waiting time at 30 and 45 minutes?

Sorry there was such a struggle to get together. With life so busy it can be tough to find time.

actually, there was no work schedule, but some of them have their personal activities that was why there was postponement.

It is very difficult for any group of even two to get together.

that is so true. especially now that there is one colleague who is not in good relation with the rest of us. she is the condescending and patronizing colleague which i made discussions about.

Too bad the meet up didn't push through but at least you knew before hand so you didn't have to go to the venue.
