Do Not Disturb

I was swamped with work earlier today.

I literally only got up to get water, use the bathroom, or smoke.

So there I was, typing frantically and researching stuff I needed.

It was noisy yet tolerable so I still wasn't losing focus.

I was fully concentrated on what I was doing because I wanted to finish everything as soon as possible.

Then, all of a sudden, one of my officemates come to my desk.

"Hello", she said.

"Hello", I answered trying not to break focus on what I was doing.

"May tanong ako."

"Ano yun?", I asked, eyes glued to my monitor.

"Ano yung Eba Panda?"

"Ha?", I asked a little confused.

"Ano yun?"

"Hindi ko alam", I answered.

"Eh alam mo daw yun eh"

"Hindi ko nga alam"

"Eh sabi ni ano alam mo daw yun", she insisted.

I was getting annoyed.

I was really busy.

"Hindi ko nga alam yun.", I answered trying to keep my voice calm.

"Eh ano nga yun?"

"Hindi ko nga alam!", I was getting really pissed at this point.

"Eh alam mo daw yun eh"

"Hindi nga! Dun ka na, I'm busy"

This should have been her signal to go away. But no. What she said after that, I did not expect.

"You're not busy. Hindi ka naman nagtratrabaho eh!"

Oh dear lord almighty in heaven. I swear to God, muntik nang nagdilim ang paningin ko.

I clutched the arm rest of my chair because I might suddenly lose it and take a swing at her.

"Busy ako. Dun ka na.", I said trying to be as calm as possible.

"Hindi ka naman busy eh!", she blurted out. Again!

Oh sweet baby Jesus of the holy saints and the holy trinity, inulit pa niya.


"Im busy! Go away!", I scoffed.

"Fine. Sige na nga byebye"

Mabuti nalang umalis siya because I was at this point wherein, my efforts were not enough to control my temper anymore.

And Im not sure if she was oblivious to the fact na nakatingin na sa kanya ang mga team mates ko kanina.

Just because you see me walking around the office and taking a break every now and then, it doesn't mean hindi ako nagtratrabaho.

Kayo ang gumawa ng trabaho ko, let's see how you'd fair at it.

I let it pass this time hoping she won't bother the same way again.

Because I might not be as gracious the next time.

P.S. Dear readers, pagbigyan niyo na ako. I just needed to vent out. Thank you.
