A former basketball player is now in the pool of annotators of, yes, basketball games. He speaks English more often than not but one can sense he’s groping. Why doesn’t he just speak Tagalog?
His presence on TV not as a player led to an unresolved argument between son and me. His point, the said person shouldn’t have been invited to the job in the first place. My point, he could have refused.
I have refused jobs I know I couldn’t handle, never mind if doing so meant forgoing income I needed. But I felt it was important to be true to myself and second, to not cheat my employer by accepting work I couldn’t do well.
Different strokes for different folks, I guess…
