Being a Travel Agent, Expat Life in Dubai

Workload is sh*tload!

March 17, 2013

It’s not even the peak season yet but work is upto my eyeballs these days. Last Saturday, we’ve had 40 passengers in our office and we were only 3 at the counter. An average package consultation can last for about 15 minutes to an hour or so. When the day ended and the doors were finally closed, my throat was so dry from all the talking that I’ve done the whole day. I felt so weak afterwards and I didn’t feel like doing anything else but to lie down on the bed and just be still. Sometimes, I wish I can play dead whenever I want without people judging me as a lunatic just so I can take a break for awhile. I need a holiday for myself.

Speaking of holiday for myself, you’d think that since planning a holiday is what I do for a living it’ll be a piece of cake for me to plan my own. No, never! It’s more complicated when I do it myself. I actually thought that this weirdness only applies to me until a colleague of mine who was bound to Phuket had the same dilemma. I think I need to go to a travel consultant for my own holiday which by the way is almost here. Yippppeeeee!

The other week, one of my colleagues was teasing me about being an OC because I have this:


That’s my diary with my to-do list for a specific date. The highlighted ones are done and completed, whereas the rest are still pending. A friend of mine once told me as well that I have a Type A personality which I totally disagree on. I’m not an overachiever, overbearing, perfectionist and a self-righteous witch. The friend told me that because I’m very organized with my life, that diary for example is a sign of organization for some people. Truth be told, I keep a diary because if I don’t write it down I’ll forget it altogether and that would make me lose my job. So that diary isn’t a sign of being an OC, it’s actually a sign of having a bad memory. 🙂

Are you a Type A or Type B personality? Take this test for you to find out: Type A Personality Test According to that test, I don’t have a Type A personality – I’m just hostile, which I think is even worst. LOL

Stupid test report!!!!!

    You should drink plenty of water throughout the day to stay hydrated 🙂
    I think I also write down everything that I plan to do because I have a bad memory and will forget about it if I don’t. But it could be a sign of a perfectionist in my case since I am my own boss and still continue to discipline myself :p
