    I think she especially take me lightly as I'm usually jovial in the office. lol .... Occasionally, I tend to go around cracking jokes, sometimes sarcastic ones, while everyone is tensed up by their work in office.

    But yeah, an education for her attitude is needed. I don't really know where to start from though.

    Lol, I always do that to people, maybe it's just that I'm a little too cocky and thinks I'm right so I see it as doing them a favor to inform them of their 'mistakes'. I'm sure not everyone likes it and God only knows if I made enermies just from that.

    Just tell her directly, no jovial sarcasm even if that sounds very smart; cos she thinks you're playing with her and won't take you seriously.

    Besides, being a Christian does not equate being a doormat. Jesus wasn't a doormat either, if you check the gospels he speaks firmly, gets angry as well.

    It may take time for people to realize that what's not to take it so hard afterall, I mean the people you may have offended thru that. Enemies? I don't see a need to be, if your intention was good.

    I noticed from those I've read. I have been more serious with her lately. In the past, I have been relax with her after hour (whilst we're still in office doing work) or break time. That reminds me, I think she also don't realize when to be serious and when not to - simply going easy all the way. I noticed her sloppiness at work today.


    What I found really amusing was, the part where she happily opened up the burger box and asked "Is this for us?" ...... amusing. What a way to put it! It was that statement that had probably extinguished any possible anger I had and tickled the laughing points instead. I mean, where or how the hell she got that "us"? There was no "us". The only "us" that existed was the Lunch Cedrey and Dinner Cedrey.... no other us existed. LOL

    Maybe I should have also told her what PJ had once mentioned, "What yours is mine. And what's mine is still MINE!" Hilarious!

    before you lose your temper, count to three and ask yourself: "is it worth it?"

    the point if, if i can actually count to three and ask myself, then it means i haven't lose it yet. i am the sort of person who assert myself to get things moving, but it's not because i lost my temper...by losing it, i meant i was already gonna kill that person before i caught myself..which rarely happens...but did happen before, just rarely. most of the time, i know perfectly what im doing.

    so the question of 'worth it or not' isn't really the issue, because i knew what i was doing, i 'don't regret for being 'nasty' so to speak.

    It may take time for people to realize that what's not to take it so hard afterall, I mean the people you may have offended thru that. Enemies? I don't see a need to be, if your intention was good.
    Heard of the saying "good medicine taste bitter"...I don't really know, what I meant is I do not rule out the possibility that some people are offended, or do not agree with what I'm saying, whether my motives are good or bad. But it doesn't stop me from doing so, despite knowing the risk. I mean, who cares? Life is too short to worry about being hated. As long as your conscience is clear, that's all that matters.

    Though I hate the taste of raw garlic, it surprisingly relieves my aching teeth/gum.

    ^ lol ^ My niece [cousin's daughter] is celebrating her 16th birthday next week. What should I get her? AHHH 16...so long ago. I never had a party because I hate being the center of attention. I got my first diamond pendant for my 16th birthday. ...but someone stole it Oh well. At least I still have the memory.

    So, what do 16 year old girls like? Is it okay to just give her money? I'm afraid I don't know my niece that well...except that she likes purple, makeup [I will not buy this for her!], Twilight [I do not support], jewelry [she's getting some already]...hmmm money? I'm such a bad auntie.

    There's something comforting in eating a bowl of milk and cereal, and something uplifting and refreshing in a warm hot shower.

    Depends. Are you at all close to her? If you are, take her out shopping for an item or two. OR just get her a new purse or new pair of shoes.

    I am not close to my niece at all...well to any of them actually. I knew all of them as toddlers but when they got older I moved abroad :/ and they forgot me.

    Maybe I'll just ask her?
