When Richass Has Got Nothing To Do

Wonder what a super-duper rich person with lots of free time at hand can do? I've just read from the forum a player who controls 36 characters in a World of Warcraft's 36-players-dungeon-raid all by himself. His ID name is Bradster. This richass would need to pay USD5,711(RM20.9k) annually just for the 36 WoW accounts. When the Wrath of Lich King expansion is released, he has to pay USD1,500(RM5.5k) in order to buy a set of 36 expansion packs. To be able to play all these 36 characters at the same time (for leveling, questing, and also mass dungeon raid), he uses 11 CPUs, installed Octopus 1.3.2 in order for a CPU to open several game (WoW) agents simultaneously, CT_MapMod to set automated tasks for the characters, ClassIcons to display a designated job icon for each character to diffirentiate them easily, and SSPVP2 runs as a timer in the background.

一些工作时的趣事

已经连续工作三个星期了,今天才有机会休息。我的工作是当一名推销员,卖的是Arnold Palmer男装。每个星期我都得换地点工作的,因为我是负责Sale Fair的。上两个星期在IOI Mall Jusco, 后来是在KL SOGO那里。

发现做这份工作会常遇到许多有趣的同事,从陌生人直到认识他们,有了点感情后却无奈地要和他们告别了,因为各自都会到不同地方的Sale Fair去站岗,而我都会对他们依依不舍。我想如果我做久了后,人生的过客量也开始猛增,我是否会把悲欢离合不再当作一回事呢?我会变得无情吗?我也发现在IOI Mall工作的最后那几天,我有点不拾得离开那里到KL SOGO站岗。虽然车脚费公司会缴付,但那时的我很排斥要到那么远的地方工作,当时还听说那里人来人往,很忙碌的。刚开始在KL SOGO那里还真的蛮想回去IOI Mall做多几天,奇怪的是,前几天开始我却不想离开了,因为到了那里才知道并不会很忙碌,而且更不会闷死,时间过得也特别快。在那里我跟几位同事还说谈得上,而且还是有说有笑的那一种,工作变成了游乐,哈哈!

工作时还会遇上一些有趣的人,例如那天看见两位老伯伯,都是上了年纪的,他们之间的友情真的很令我佩服。不但如此,两位都很会搞笑,很有幽默感。一位是要来买衣服的,另一位则是陪老友来买。买衣服的那一位选了要买的衣服后,问我在哪里可以试穿看看靓不靓,另一位在我还没来得及开口就插嘴说到:(广东话)"吾晒试啦,衰人穿衰件衫啦,边度会靓咧?",当时我真的傻眼了,他的笑话竟然那么绝!买衣的那位更厉害,他向我说:(广东话)"渠讲你地件杉系衰衫,告渠,我撑你!",弄到我不知如何反应才好。后来买衣服的那位拍拍我的肩旁笑着对我说他们开玩笑而已,别当真。我是没有当真啦,只是被他们的半世纪友谊和那幽默感被吓到而已。。。

如果在自己住的地方附近打工,会常看到熟人,我赞同这看法。我的确好几次在工作时遇到几位邻居和朋友。可是,连住在接近200km远处的亲戚朋友,也被我在IOI Mall碰到,你说是不是很有缘呐?他们是我母亲故乡里(Raub, Pahang)的亲戚朋友,趁小孩子放假来吉隆坡玩。没想到他们会在那天去IOI Mall还遇见我,虽然一年只见一次面,但他们都认得出我。。。首先说我很面熟,后来认出我来了。工作时我穿的是全身黑色的西装,他们说我变帅了,我知道那只是随口赞赞而已,可是还是有点得意。其中一位还跟我买了几件衣服回去,只可惜我这份工没commission拿呀!

有好多趣事还想继续分享,只可惜我不喜欢打长篇“小说”,就到此为止了。
