|What legacy will time speak of you?|
So if I have a friend who is late for work. I would not cover his ass and compromise myself with more lies. This happens at work all the time. I know the thing called "pakikisama" is such an annoying thing in the Filipino mindset. I think its one reason that red tape and corruption is pervasive in all walks of life.
Work is work and must be dealt with as such with professionalism and not excuses. Your work must be valued for the input you put forward and not by how much grip you have on management. And at the end of the day these assholes have all the qualms to complain, as if their life is so hard.
Yeah sorry for another rant.
