Dear Manager,

I have been too cute and to shy to inform you of my desire for the last 5 years.

You're a good manager. You know how to deal with your people.

But you don't know how to impress their wallet.

Well, forgive me of my blatant frankness (blatant na frankness pa!) but despite of the many millions you spend in the purchase of the many machines for the last three years, you haven't increase even 50 halalas (6 pesos) my salary.

Any Filipino in his decent mind know that he/she came here abroad to work for the betterment of the future, but if the last three years is nothing but increase in jobs, assignments, scopes of work, and position, duh, forget it. I would rather prefer to be a mere chemist in the lab receiving P90T a month rather than be a manager and managing a diverse group of people and receive only P60T.

Well, you can buy a cute Filipino's hand and back like mine, but no, sorry, you can't buy my heart and my mind.

I am leaving you with so many things, and my memory will be etched in every procedure future chemist will read and follow, the Quality System, HACCP, ISO, and almost all of the QA forms that chemist will fill. My memory will be remembered in the design of the water treatment, laboratory room, and microbiology room.

Nah, I rant too much here.

Bottomline, I am resigning.

Forget about the analogy that I was the one who planted, nourished and is taking care of the tree and when it is about to bear fruit, I'll leave. I know the fruit will be delicious and wonderful to the taste. But I don't know if I will be shared with that fruit. Worse, I don't know if I'll be given the chance to taste the fruit my labors.

So today with a heavy heart I am filing this irrevocable resignation. We have nothing to talk about. You got tired of talking and I got tired of listening to those sweet words and promises.

Also I wake up this morning

and found
