[分享]Home away from home....

When I first visited and signed in to ECT, I didn’t know what these terms, “Just popping in…”, “Not too shy to talk…”, “Just can’t stay away…” and “Home away from home..” meant, and what all the stars were about. As I read other people’s posts and saw some of them living in the USA, UK, even “All around the world” …etc., and they were at the “Home away from home” with 3 or 4 stars, I just guessed they must live in a foreign country and be far away from Taiwan. :)

I didn’t know the real truth, until one day when my posting hit around 30. I noticed that I have moved from “Just popping in…” to “Not too shy to talk…” with a star. Hmm… “It’s getting interesting.” I thought. After posting a certain number of my opinions and questions, I moved forward to another level. And now, I am at “Home away from home”; I finally understand what these terms are all about. How exciting!

p.s. I've learned a lot, too.

Really? I never pay attention to that; not because I am not concerned about the development of this news group, but because when I post something here I do it like they do hit-and-run in the baseball games - I post and run before my boss catch me sneaking into this place while I am working.

Hope you will soon find here like home away from home.
And if your boss is catching you creeping into ECT, just tell him/her, "I am going home for a short rest simply in order to do more effective work at the office" But I have to say in advance that I am not sure if your boss will still take aim at you. If he/she does, just don't scold me.

You know what? I just did. And you know what he said? He said, "Please don't go. You are very important to this company. I apologize, and I am giving you a raise."

What? You don't believe it? Me neither.

Coward? Yeah, super one.
