Fire Drill

Heard so many retrenchment stories…

I like this one. Innovative


Fire Drill

A fire alarm rang at 4 PM at our office when almost all the employees are in (approx 2,000).

As usual, the entire office was evacuated within 5 minutes and every employee gathered outside at the designated


10 minutes passed… then 5 more minutes passed, but no information or update. After more than 15 minutes of standing

outside the office, the following announcement was heard over the PA system:

Dear Employees, with a heavy heart I am making this announcement that for many of you it will be the last evacuation


Due to recessionary pressures, the company is laying off almost 50% of the employees. While moving back into the

office, if your Access Card does not work, you are amongst those laid off. All your belongings will be couriered to

your residential addresses tomorrow.

We have followed this approach as we did not want to fill email boxes with layoff instructions and consequent good-bye

emails in thousands. We also wanted to avoid any fist-fights inside the office premises.

Hope you have nice career ahead. Please move in NOW and try your luck.

Next time there is a fire drill at your office…… be cautious !

Which ever approach is taken, either way also die.

Nice one

25 things about me.

Rules: Once you’ve been tagged, you are supposed to write a note with 25 random things, facts, habits, or goals about you. At the end, choose 25 people to be tagged. You have to tag the person who tagged you. If I tagged you, it’s because I want you to know more about me.

1) My favourite number is 3 not 11.

2) My favourite color used to be Red because i felt it is very warm. But now it is Purple because it is sexy.

3) I am a natural right-footer but i guess i had the wrong soccer mentor and i am trained to be a ” un-natural” left-footer.

4) I used to have a Jack Russell named Jack. My mom didnt bother to think of another name.

5) I am a christian, which not alot of people believed because i never go to church

6) I top my chinese classes during primary and secondary days. Chinese idioms is in my blood.

7) I am a sneakerhead which explain why i have more shoes than my gf and most people do not understand why a guy need so many pairs of shoes.

8) I have supported Manchester United since 1993. The first time i supported them, they lost the league on the final day of the season.

9) Apart from soccer, i like to play table tennis. I represent my primary and secondary school for competition. I was always a doubles- player. I found it too boring after that and started kicking a ball at 14!

10) I am a ” Legs” person.

11) My childhood ambition is to be a Policeman. i freaked my mom out!

12) The only cartoon/comic i watched when i am young is Dragon Z. I still have those card collection…those shiny cards.

13) When i was young, i think wearing specs is cool. So i decided to read on the bed with low-light. Apparently, specs are never cool.

14) I am an ultra-messy person and never able to be organised. But i rarely ever forget my appointments. They are all in my head.

15) I am a fan of good jazz and classic music. Although the only loud music i listen to is Linkin Park. Best band in the world.

16) I never get a chance to learn music when i was young, so i picked up guitar, violin and er-hu myself. I didn’t really excel. My parents are right.

17) I absolutely hate SNAKES and i rather kill myself than to touch one. Given a chance, i will kill them all and not letting them live.

18) The only thing i don’t really eat is filmsy fish skin….Yucks

19) I found out recently that i like to cook and i have a talent for it. I appreciate good food and will not settle for second-best.

20) I hate jogging because i felt it is with no purpose. I rather run with a ball. But now i have to do so to pass my IPPT.

21) I love to gamble and i would take a chance in life or on the table. I am a risk-taker.

22) I love to play Magic the gathering even though it is banned in school because it is viewed a satanic game.

23) I am a very dreamy person, characteristic of a Pisces.

24) I am once the sportperson of the year during secondary school days where i won Gold for 800m and 3000m and Silver for 1500m. I marginally beat Darien to it! He has 2 Golds, 1 bronze.

25) My name is Ryan Xie Sheng Guo. Ryanstyle.
