And also get the check ready...
I've been wanting to do this for a long time. That's ever since I started blogging or rather, ranting in my blog. But I dared not because Bill could just get fed up with me and buy up the whole part of the country I live in because he's rich enough to do that 10 times over. Or he could just buy out my family name. And the whole lot of us. That's scary.
You see, Bill's MS Word or Excel or the email Outlook always tries to 'correct' my surname every time I type it out as LC Teh, no matter how carefully I did it. Then after I go on to finish the rest of the sentence and punch that fullstop, my name has been changed to LC The. My colleagues tell me the same thing. They get frustrated every time they try to address me respectfully in a message. Some even end up addressing me a Mr Tay...which I resent. How dare anyone change my surname? My grand dad would turn in his grave if he ever reads my emails. So in the end some of them simply address me as Tuan, Datuk or simply as LC.
Then I found out how to make my MS Word do my bidding without trying to 'correct' my 'error'. I simply delete that 'teh' word from AutoCorrect. But still it's other people who try to send me mesages that rile me up, especially if they don't share my surname. You see, they make mistakes typing 'teh' instead of 'the' more often than they need to type my surname.
Anyway, these days I don't mind if Bill buys up the place where I live. You see, those people who're running the place and those who once ran the place are now at each other's throats (or backsides) while the economy is sinking, sinking, sinking. Those people who once ran the place almost ran it to the ground. Now they say those people running it have no experience. Or they're good at digging up old dirt.
So what? You need to dig up some dirt to straighten the place, right?
