Cry Baby of the Week

Someone seriously needs to build a bridge and get over it.

Look at this cry baby who is having a sook in the courts over a Secret santa present 2 years ago.

A former Canberra public servant has told how his career was ruined by a heartless “Secret Santa” prankster.

Ngoc Luan Ho Trieu says he never got over the cruel gift he was given by an anonymous colleague in Christmas 2012.

Ngoc was working as an economic modeller when he was targeted by the unnamed colleague with a present that clearly implied his economic modelling work was animal poo.

As part of his team’s Kris Kringle, Ngoc was presented with a plastic reindeer.

“When you press its tail it gives you a chocolate dropping, and a play dough with handwritten words ‘Luan’s modelling kit’,” the economist said.

Teehee, that’s funny. I once gave a stinky work colleague some underarm and soap.

But wait…someone wants to be outraged and a victim.

“I was shocked and very upset.

“That really spoiled the joy of the division’s Christmas lunch so I quit halfway through it.

Teehee, that’s funny.

“I had many sleepless nights after that, and always felt heartbroken when going to work the following days.”

Things got worse when colleagues told Ngoc that the anonymous joker might have been one of his bosses.

“The problem is the present is from a Secret Santa so I do not know who gave it to me so that we can talk it over,” Ngoc said.

Oh get over yourself.

Whining about sleepless nights sounds like just the sort of things professional whingers and vexatious complainers say to useful idiots like the Privacy Commission state.

But claiming sleepless nights over a Secret Santa present is pathetic.

After a break for Christmas and New Year, Ngoc returned to work but could not shake the feeling that he had been targeted and things were never the same.

“When I returned to work, the bad feelings came back,” he said.

“Why should I be offended and why should my profession be offended by someone who I think would know very little about economic and financial modelling to have such a low regard for the profession?”

When a round of redundancies came in June 2013, the economist says he put up his hand “with a heavy heart”.

“Now, 2014 Christmas is coming and … I still cannot escape from the sad feelings that Secret Santa forced on me two years ago,” Ngoc said.

Still crying a river of tears years later. Took the cash and ran, now looking to sup some more from the greivance trough.

He said his experience should act as a warning to public servants and other office workers that “harmless pranks” can have long-lasting effects on colleagues’ feelings and even their careers.

“Please be aware that beside all the physical and sexual and health and accidental danger zones of public service Christmas parties, there is the long psychological danger I am suffering for taking part in something like the Secret Santa which I mistakenly think it should be fun for everyone to take part at Christmas time,” Ngoc said.

What a sook…he needs some advice from Steve Hughes:

When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.
