Wrong Information

My sister and I went out today to go to the agency to settle the interment fee of my Dad. I had been talking about this for a month and I am so excited because I was able to pay for it out of my earnings. My sister told me that we should pay it this week or today, which is Friday because they will have an increase by next week. I supposed to pay for it the other day; I’d been calling my sister to accompany me there since the title was on her name. But she was so busy with her newly put up business, they have purchased a printing machine and their full attention was needed in the office. I was confident we can still make it before the day they would increase the fee for the interment because my sister has been there in their office to ask for the title and on that day she was told that they will have an increase of payment next week, the in-charge also told her that we can still pay for it on Friday, which is today so we will be no longer affected with the increase.

But to our surprise the in-charge inform us that she told my sister wrong information the other day. She said her boss told her that even we pay the interment fee today, we are still affected with the increase and thus we need to pay P13, 500 instead of P11, 000. I was stunned with how she was relax while saying that to us, so my sister told her to give us a favor. She talked to her boss and her boss just informed us to settle the requirement right away and submit it today. We were panicked, I mean how could we settle the requirements in one day, the LCR will definitely release the death certificate by next day if we request it this afternoon. We asked again if they could adjust the date since we are going to pay the interment today and not on Monday and why it would affect us while the increase is effective on Monday yet. She said it was their requirement as I was starting to get pissed off, I told the lady you know what if you just did not tell us a wrong information, we already paid that the other day, it is just we got too busy and we’re not able to make it here, we depended on what you said to us the other day that’s why we are here today and not the other day. And she was silence, it was definitely all her fault and I can’t just be silent about it because she needs to be corrected.

One Way To Market A Business

One thing that can boost up a business is promotion and advertisements, there are many ways to advertise your business and the first one would be flyers that you can give to your prospect customers. My sister is putting up a business and for now I am helping her with anything I can, I am actually helping her to advertise her business. I suggested for a rack card printing, at first she did not get how it could promote her business while it is only a piece of paper that you could hand down to the customers, she told me it will not help her business to be known to the market. Slowly, I tried to explain everything I know, that the rack card printing would be the only tool for her to market her products. Of course, with proper designs, size and materials of her rack card, certainly her business would prove to be highly lucrative. Templates would be so easy because there were templates that are available online so we don’t need brainstorming of what kind of designs we are going to make.

After hearing my suggestions, now she is eager to have it as soon as possible. But she still has to consult it with her business associate and the budget for each rack card printing and where would be the right location for them to display it. Some companies displayed it in the restaurants, airports and hotels and I think they will take my advice. I wish my sister all the best for her new business, I know she will have a lot to learn but one thing for sure she will make it.

Post in FB

Right after the Ms. Universe announce the winner, there were many criticisms and opinions of who supposed to be the winner of the said pageant. Many were disappointed of the result but obviously many had triumph for Ms. Angola. Definitely she deserves to win; I am not saying that Ms. Philippines does not deserve to win. But I guess there are some points that the judges have look into for Ms. Angola so she was announced to be the winner.

In FB, many had posted this:

I have reservations with the results. If the only basis is the Q and A portion, after having been trimmed down to 5, Ms. Philippines deserved to win. What made her different from the rest is that she had no seconds to rethink of her answer as she had no interpreter to break the ice. The rest had their interpreters and having breaks on seconds to think about their answers. Hands down, Ms. Philippines answered straight to the point.” ~ Oprah Winfrey via NBC News

Then the days after:

Answering a query on the alleged statement, a moderator on Oprah’s official website said Oprah has not issued “any comments of this nature.”

OWNModerator13 responded: “There is no truth to the statement. Ms. Winfrey has not made any comments of this nature. Thank you for asking.

No one knew who have said that or where the post did came from.
