Typhoon Dante

To say that traffic in Metro Manila tonight is a nightmare is an understatement. There's flooding, traffic jams and stranded commuters are everywhere. I had to wait two hours before I got a cab to go to work. --- To think I was already having a bad day ---

Around 4 PM I got a text message from my Team Lead informing me that there was a change in our sched and we have to go to work two hours earlier tonight. It has something to do with a change in team groupings or something and we have to fill in for another team. This is something you get for working in a call center and dealing with a terrible resource team. --- they are the people responsible for preparing shift schedules for teams ---

Anyway I tried leaving the house at around 6 PM and guess what it was already 8 when I got a cab? At that time I really wanted to go home and forget about going to work but after talking to my friend over the phone I decided to follow his advice and go to work.

Here's an update on the Typhoon Dante from PAGASA's website.
