If you don't change yourself, your employer will change you
I find Singaporean really have no creativity and follow blindly. There is 2 jokes I want to share that can hopefully enlighten you guys:

5 Monkey and a Ladder

A group of scientists placed five monkeys in a cage, and in the middle, a ladder with bananas on top.

Every time a monkey went up the ladder, the scientists soaked the rest of the monkeys with cold water.

After a while, every time a monkey would start up the ladder, the others would pull it down and beat it up.

After a time, no monkey would dare try climbing the ladder, no matter how great the temptation.

The scientists then decided to replace one of the monkeys. The first thing this new monkey did was start to climb the ladder. Immediately, the others pulled him down and beat him up.

After several beatings, the new monkey learned never to go up the ladder, even though there was no evident reason not to, aside from the beatings.

The second monkey was substituted and the same occurred. The first monkey participated in the beating of the second monkey. A third monkey was changed and the same was repeated. The fourth monkey was changed, resulting in the same, before the fifth was finally replaced as well.

What was left was a group of five monkeys that – without ever having received a cold shower – continued to beat up any monkey who attempted to climb the ladder.

If it was possible to ask the monkeys why they beat up on all those who attempted to climb the ladder, their most likely answer would be “I don’t know. It’s just how things are done around here.”

Does that sound at all familiar?

The Guru's Cat

When the guru sat down to worship each evening, the ashram cat would get in the way and distract the worshipers. So he ordered that the cat be tied during evening worship.

After the guru died the cat continued to be tied during evening worship. And when the cat died, another cat was brought to the ashram so that it could be duly tied during evening worship.

Centuries later learned treatises were written by the guru’s disciples on the religious and liturgical significance of tying up a cat while worship is performed.
Desperta Ferro!
Haha, I like the Guru's cat. This summarise our current society. You should take a look at We All Are Worker Bee which is pretty similar to yours and very interesting.
I got a nice moral joke to share too.

There is this Urban dog that can talk and eat human food. Once day he went to the desert alone for exploration. He packed all the food and water that is needed for an entire month but soon he died after 3 days. He wasn't killed by natural disaster, monster, human nor sickness. The question is how did it die?

Think before you scroll for answer...

It died from holding its pee for too long, because in the desert there are no pillar to pee.

So start changing your mindset or you will end up like the dog.
Good joke Paulina.....
Good to know that....
Well said.....
If you don't change your habits which doesn't match your job or your company, then they will fired you soon...
