My beloved was quite upset when told that I will have to take a severe pay cut or maybe later even lose my job because of Covid-19.
My beloved was upset not actually because of the pay cut or the prospect of my retrenchment but rather because I was so calm about it.
My beloved has always hated my calmness.
Well, that's just me. I'm mostly a calm person.
I mostly avoid problems and unpleasantness if I could do so.
If I still have to face them, I'll try to do so without much complaints.
So, in this Covid-19 scenario, I do understand why my employer have to take drastic measures.
Business is simply suffering.
The way I see it, this Covid-19 pandemic is a real war - and a world war at that.
There are bound to be casualties and sufferings.
Everyone suffers in a war, okay....one way or another.
I tried to imagine that the place where I'm working had been bombed in this war and the boss have to cut everybody's pay or even retrench the workers to keep the place going.
Well, the boss has no choice.
On my part, I know I can't expect things to carry on as usual during a war such as this.
We are all in the trenches together, so we have to suffer together.
If I got shot, then I have to accept it. I shouldn't be complaining why it's me and not the next person who got shot.....or suffer a pay cut or even retrenched.
I still have a bit of saving that will lasts for a while. Hopefully it's enough for my needs.
For now, I'm just praying for this Covid-19 pandemic to blow over as soon as possible.
Staying put in the house for these past few days has not been so bad for me.
Spent it mostly reading and playing games on my phone...and praying.
My beloved kept me updated on what's happening out there, which I'm grateful.
I don't have much heart to read about all those deaths and suffering myself.
As for the movement control order, I believe it will be extended beyond its March 31 dateline.
Well, I support any move by the government to contain this Covid-19 outbreak even if it causes me to suffer.
As I said, it's a war.
In a war, we as a nation must get together and support our leaders.
Whether we like them or not, doesn't really matter at the moment.
So far, this government has been doing not so badly in its job to combat the pandemic.
Of course, there were problems, but they are getting better at it.
Let's pray that they continue to do so.
Okay.....I'm running out of things to write for now. Will update this blog later.
You all stay safe, okay.
