How to Keep One's Job According to My Subconscious




Photo credit: brethollander.me
Pardon my use of character from EL James' 50 Shades of Grey. See, this is part 1, where my Subconscious, my "id", justifies the things a Pinoy/Pinay does just to keep his/her job.

A lot of us complain about our jobs. The most common complaints are the following:

   1. my job doesn't pay a lot
   2.  my job sucks
   3. my boss sucks
   4. my workplace is too far from home
   5. my co-workers suck
   6. I'm being made to do work outside my job description
   7. my job makes a slave of me


A survey was conducted by the National Census showing that unemployment rate in the Philippines is at 7.2% while underemployment rate is at 18.8%.  Unemployment refers to the absence of a job, underemployment means that one has a job, but the job pays below the minimum wage as required by law.*

So, with these statistics, it is clear that it is so hard to find a job here in the Philippines.

Here are a few tips and justifications to keep a job according to my "Subconscious":

1.  Try to see the good things about your job, whether it's your job itself, the office, the co-workers, the receptionist, the pantry, the vendors you pass by on your way to the office, your cute boss or co-worker, your trendy office phone or computer or whatever.  If you feel that your work is too far from home, then bring something to do while in the bus, jeep, train, taxi or even colorum van.   Just think positive and  the negative things you see about your job may be cancelled off by the good things.

2. Try to be yourself.  Don't try to please everyone.  If you become too friendly, people will find you plastic.  If you're too professional, people will find you a snob. If you're too smart, people will say you're a know-it-all.  If you do your job well, somebody would think you want to be promoted and bypass all the others who came in before you.  If you don't do your job, people will say that you're lazy.  Wherever you put yourself, there will still be people who will find fault it no. So whatever you do, there will always be someone who won't like you or your guts so try to be yourself but maintain composure and courtesy all the time.

3. If you're not doing anything, idle chitchat with your co-workers is ok. But idle chitchat the whole 8 hours in the office is NOT okay.  Try to find something else to do: find out more about your office's history, your co-workers' jobs and offer your help to them if they're swamped with work while you're not. Filipinos are well-loved when they work abroad because the employers swear that Filipinos go out of their way to do more than their call of duty.  Filipinos seldom or don't complain at all even if we are asked more than what our job entails us to do.  Doing this won't hurt you, it just might take up some extra time, but think of it this way:  you might learn a lot from helping and your superiors might notice that you have a potential.

4. If you make a mistake at work (or feel that you did but a big chunk of it was the fault of someone else), admit suck mistake (no matter how tiny and that it's merely contributory), apologize and suck it up. Try not to get "national census" from everyone in the office to tally who was right and who was wrong.   It's just your ego trying to justify yourself.  Instead of getting the sympathy of everyone, clarify whatever the issue is with your superior in order to avoid doing it again.

5. Make friends.  Our offices are our second homes.  Sometimes, we even spend more than half of our waking hours in the office.  So try not to look at your co-workers are your competitors.  Look at them as your potential friends.

6. So you have evil co-workers. Giving in to their wickedness would make you a wimp.  Stand up and be strong. Don't let them put you down.  I saw somewhere that there's a good saying in case your co-workers and/or your boss are the meanest of the mean: "They'll die too!"

7. If you feel that you are getting bored with your job, try to find ways to liven it up. Or maybe, you need more social activities to make up for the boring job. Ask to be transferred to a different department, if you can.  Ask your human resources department for skills training or schooling for employees so you can avail of such benefit.  If you feel that you are so overburdered with your job, ask help. Use your leave credits, if you have any. There's no law prohibiting anyone from taking a leave from work, once in a while. Otherwise, that's involuntary servitude and is against human rights.

8.  I still have a lot of suggestions in my mind, but I feel that "8" is a lucky number so this will be my last advice.  Always remember that there are a lot of Filipinos out there, who would like to work, just so they can have money to buy their daily food.   So feel lucky that you are employed and you are contributing to the government's coffers with your taxes.



Seize the day!

Vicenta Cantemprate et al., vs. CRS Realty Dev't. Corp. et al.



G.R. No. 171399

May 8, 2009


Petitioners bought on an installment basis subdivision lots from respondent CRS Realty and had paid in full the agreed purchase prices; but notwithstanding the full payment and despite demands, respondents failed and refused to deliver the corresponding certificates of title to petitioners. They alleged that respondent Casal was the owner of a parcel of land situated in General Mariano Alvarez, Cavite known as the CRS Farm Estate while respondent Salvador was the president of respondent CRS Realty, the developer of CRS Farm Estate. Petitioners averred that respondents failed to deliver the titles to their respective properties. Casal averred that despite his willingness to deliver them, petitioners refused to accept the certificates of title with notice of lis pendens covering the subdivision lots. Respondent Salvador alleged that the failure by respondent Casal to comply with his obligation under the first agreement to deliver to CRS or the buyers the certificates of title was caused by the annotation of the notice of lis pendens on the certificate of title covering the subdivision property.


HLURB Arbiter Ma. Perpetua Y. Aquino declared that the regular courts and not the HLURB had jurisdiction over petitioners’ complaint, thus, the complaint for quieting of title could not be given due course. The Heirs of Laudiza and Ligon were dropped as parties on the ground of lack of cause of action. However, she found respondents CRS Realty, Casal and Salvador liable on their obligation to deliver the certificates of title of the subdivision lots to petitioners who had paid in full the purchase price of the properties. She also found as fraudulent and consequently nullified the subsequent transfer of a portion of the subdivision to respondents Ang and Cuason.


Issues:

(1) whether or not the absence of a license to sell has rendered the sales void;

(2) whether or not the subsequent sale to respondent Cuason and Ang constitutes double sale;

(3) whether or not the HLURB has jurisdiction over petitioners’ complaint; and

(4) whether a minute decision conforms to the requirement of Section 14, Article VIII of the Constitution.


Ruling: 

1. The only requisite for a contract of sale or contract to sell to exist in law is the meeting of minds upon the thing which is the object of the contract and the price, including the manner the price is to be paid by the vendee. The absence of the license to sell does not affect the validity of the already perfected contract of sale between petitioners and respondent CRS Realty.


2. The HLURB has exclusive jurisdiction over the complaint for specific performance to compel respondents CRS Realty, Casal and Salvador as subdivision owners and developers to deliver to petitioners the certificates of title after full payment of the subdivision lots. On this score, the Court affirms the findings of HLURB Arbiter Aquino with respect to the obligation of respondents Casal, Salvador and CRS Realty to deliver the certificates of title of the subdivision to petitioners pursuant to their respective contracts to sell.


There is no question that respondents Casal, Salvador and CRS Realty breached their obligations to petitioners under the contracts to sell. It is settled that a breach of contract is a cause of action either for specific performance or rescission of contracts.Respondents Casal, Salvador and CRS Realty have the obligation to deliver the corresponding clean certificates of title of the subdivision lots, the purchase price of which have been paid in full by petitioners. That the subject subdivision property is involved in a pending litigation between respondent Casal and persons not parties to the instant case must not prejudice petitioners.


3. As regards petitioners’ prayer to declare them the absolute owners of the subdivision lots, the HLURB had no jurisdiction to declare petitioners as absolute owners of the subdivision lots as against the Heirs of Laudiza who filed an action for reconveyance against respondent Casal, which is still pending before the RTC.


4. The decision of the OP does not violate the mandate of Section 14, Article VIII of the Constitution, which provides that “No decision shall be rendered by any court without expressing therein clearly and distinctly the facts and the law on which it is based.”


The OP decision ruled that “the findings of fact and conclusions of law of the office a quo are amply supported by substantial evidence” and that it is “bound by said findings of facts and conclusions of law and hereby adopt(s) the assailed resolution by reference.”


The Court finds these legal bases in conformity with the requirements of the Constitution. The Court has sanctioned the use of memorandum decisions, a species of succinctly written decisions by appellate courts in accordance with the provisions of Section 40, B.P. Blg. 129 on the grounds of expediency, practicality, convenience and docket status of our courts. The Court has declared that memorandum decisions comply with the constitutional mandate.

Relief Goods or Assistance: Where to Bring them? Where to Go?

The Philippines is again besieged by a calamity. This is an opportune time to share our blessings and show to ourselves that we still have in us the spirit of "bayanihan".
