The Big Breakfast


I was back to work last Friday, 17th of Sept. I thought I had forgotten how to handle calls after ten days of absence. There were plenty of calls yet, I was thankful I received less irate callers. I arrived an hour earlier than my work shift to read some updates. However, it was my computer that acted up and slowed me down. I managed to read some important items sent to my e-mail through intranet. Yes, our e-mail address is within the company only. Our server barred us from receiving and sending e-mails from other networks. We can only receive and send e-mails from work related networks. The reason is for security of our client.

The following day, I met my nephew. Yeah, he is the one who graduated from college last May this year. He started working full time as a web designer, last 1st of Sept. Like me he also works at night time. Our difference is that, he does not wear headset and no direct communication with their client. He received his first pay and he treated me for breakfast at McDonalds. His boyish face lit up as he showed me his pay slip. I likewise gave him the part two of my cash gift on his graduation. The budget I set aside for him was used for the helper of my mother. Mother will not need a helper in heaven anymore. I was able to give the balance of the promised cash gift to the favorite grandchild of my mother.

My nephew likes his job. He bought rubber shoes, a brand that is a bit expensive part of his salary. Then, gave his ATM card to his mom so he will not be tempted spending his hard earned monies on not so important items. Good boy! Like me, he gets his salary by withdrawing the money from the bank opened by his employer. Most big companies in Manila provide their employees with ATM card. It is up to the employees as to when they would like to withdraw their salary. This is I guess is for their convenience and likewise for the convenience of their employees. I ordered a big breakfast and caramel sundae at McDonalds. The story part is more than the food we ate. We parted ways after I guess an hour or two. Ahhh! I lost counts. It was a nice bonding time.

Your breakfast is different than ours. I love the ATM idea. Interesting posting :O)

Jean said...

The only thing I will eat at McDonald's is the breakfast items.

You must be very proud of your nephew. :)

Ren said...

Wow, your breakfast looks different than the food McDonald's serves here; it looks delicious.

Congratulations to your nephew; you are such a good aunt and daughter.

I hope you are well!

@Country Mouse Studio – Indeed it had been a good idea. We can even use our ATM card to shop or buy groceries, instead of withdrawing the money and paying in cash. @Jean- I eat some of the other McDonalds products but not much. They are very fattening. But I do like their big breakfast.. @Ren – Thanks.. in a way they said I am a good aunt. (lol) My siblings and I had been good children to our parents and so with my in laws. We may not have a perfect relationship. Yet, I am happy to have a loving family. ♥
