today, I woke up 25 minutes before my shift. but on a usual day, i used to wake up atleast 2 hours before, in order for me to have ample time to commute from katipunan to makati. just imagine the panic that struck me when i saw my unreliable alarm clock. i immediately stood up from bed and prepared for work. it surprises me how my adrenalin cut my preparing time to 5minutes form the usual 30 minutes or more.
when i stepped off our gate i hailed a cab, believing that it would save me from getting scolded again by my supervisor, for it sometimes does the trick. taking the cab would just take me 15minutes to my office, if the driver senstive enough to realize that i am rushing, while 30 or more minutes if i got an lpg driven taxi and a very lousy driver.
fortunately, i was able to get a regular taxi with a very sensitive and friendly driver. but when i thought that i am about to make it, i saw a big traffic build up ahead, along c5 road. its such a big hassle, especially for commuters, whenever politicians start to build up their names foir the upcoming election. even the roads that doesn't really need some would be dig up and be reconstructed, behind the excuse of widening it for better roads, better lives, as they say it.
what is more annoying is the fact that the road they use to reconstruct are the busy ones, those that most people pass but don't really need to have major repaired: and to worsten it all, reconstructing a 300m road takes god-knows-how-long. take for example, the f*&#$^% C5 road! while those roads that are remote and really needs total reconstructions are being ignored and left out. they just have to show off their name to the people passing, still believing that name recalling is always a good thing.
i reached work almost an hour ahead of my supposed shift. still upset of the traffic that i struggled to pass through. i immediately headed to my station. hoping that my boss did not notice me. but when i felt his presence coming near me, i hurried setting up everything and pretended busying myself with work.
"after that one, go to my cube, okay?"
i just gave him a nod.
i know, its me to blame for being late. but if not for the road construction they keep on digging up, i could have catch it up.
oh well, its just me ranting. now, back to regular emo programming. hahaha!
