Normally, in any other country in the world the higher title you have or higher salary you have the more you have to work or contribute. This does not apply here. Phillippinos are so horny in power and titles that they will do alomost anything to recive it. Where you are on the organizational chard does seriusly matter, its not about the job you do, its about the title you have and the power that comes with it. Phillippinos want to rule over other phillippinos, and the more people you have under you, the more respect you get, and respect is serious business. So yesterday i experienced a fight between three staff members in my company, and it was about, wait for it, The gate pass, who will have the authority to sign?…
I got the paper on my desk and signed the new signatory from the HR, because i couldent care less who signs the gate passes, as long as they are archived. But this was some real fucking serious business. And when the old signatory was no longer allowed to sign, he got pissed, because he wanted the power to sign what comes out and what comes in. This was a long disscussion and it all ended with my quote “Fuck it, ile sign the gate passes, nobody else”. Then they could start talking about who was best fit for it.. its amazing how much trouble they cause to have that little power.
The Title – Having the highest title, and get as much respect as possible.
The Power – The power to do things that others cant, it doesent matter how small the thing is.Published in
