喜歡了同事 – 覆Piyo

Dear
Zita,

I really like reading your articles and hope
you may give me a hand.

I'm a year 2 student and I've met a guy last
summer holiday in a firm where I had my first summer job. I was so happy
working there because the colleagues were so nice to me (other ppl (people)
don't know the manager is my uncle) and I really loved the work.

At the same time, I had
noticed a quite(quiet) guy. He's 10 years older than me. He is intelligent
with sense of humor. He is so gentle and eager to teach every junior.
He is so serious about his work. He really attracts me.

He's so serious about his work
so I could hear he shouted at juniors sometimes, but he never shouted
at me. But he was still so popular among those juniors. I couldn't tell
he's only F.3 graduated until he told me. Because his english is so
good and the way he anaylizes (analyzes) problems was so special. I
know he has not been with girls for years from other colleagues.

We became closer and closer,
and we loved talking to each other. One day, there was a big swollen
zip on his nose and he said that was because someone was in love with
him. I suddenly became so red and could not stop smiling. He then smiled
and seemed to be so happy for a few days, he talked to me with very
soft voice then.

Few days later, my uncle asked
him out and talked to him for a while. After that, he treated me totally
different. He didn't talk to me and look at me directly anymore, he
didn't even stay alone with me in the resting room. He was running away
from me.

After summer, I went back to
school and I was still working there as a part-time junior. I tried
to call him on the phone and we talked to each other frequently.

During the occasion just before
the exam, I didn't go to work because I wanted to concentrate on my
study. But I still missed him sometimes, so I called him. Once he listen
my voice, he said, "Please don't be like that, why aren't you coming
back to work? I'm being nice to you just because you're my colleague;
don't leave your job because of me. You're not my type, and you will
have a lot of choices when you grow up. Please don't phone me anymore,
this is so disturbing." He didn't know I was preparing my exam.

However, the day just after
that day, he decided to be one of the partners of the firm. Oh! My God!
He became my boss!

My heart was broken and I cried
after hang up. After the exam, I went back to work and I tried to be
normal in front of him. I was appreciated he was so honest to me, he
won't "play" me.

About a month ago, I had argument
with my supervisor because he was hiding something from his partner,
right, that's HIM. I then quited (quitted) the job.
On the Valentine's day, I went back to the firm late at night to visit
my ex-colleagues (HE was training the juniors), I was fixing to have
dinner with them. Before I stepped out the door, he called my name and
said, " Would you give me a favour (favor)?" Would you help
me to......(working stuff, looking for some info.). He started become
gentle to me again, he opens doors for me, smiling and talk to me again.

We then connected with each
other again, I didn't know if it was right for me to tell him the stuff
about my ex-supervisor. As my ex-colleague said, he seems to be so happy
these days and didn't shout at anyone. And he had tried quit smoking
too, but he couldn't make it.

He said he would call me, but
he didn't. And I don't want to phone him anymore because I feel like
being so cheap. I've heard something like "Girls in Hong Kong are
cheaper then it used to be, they're like giving themselves to people"
from HIM. He said he couldn't accept young people are so open these
days.

I miss him, what can I do? I
don't even know what he thinks about me. I'm now not calling him and
seeing him, is he going to forget me?

I'm so sorry to write such a
long letter, but I'm now so unhappy and hope you could give me a hand.

Yours sincerely,

Piyo



Dear Piyo︰

你喜歡了一名工作至上而且不接受因工作關係而發生愛情的人。

他明知你喜歡他,他也與你很投緣,只是,一遇上選擇,他就選擇了工作而不是你。

你不用再做甚麼,大家一早已心照。而我相信,他短時間之內,也不會與你有進展。

何不像《X-Files》那樣,大家做對心照不宣的伙伴?

你的同事如若陷他於不義,你該以公司立場處理之。他是工作至上的人,你要他尊重你的話,你亦要一樣似他以工作為重。

深雪覆
