jess different


wanted to write this when it was HOT in my head but laziness got the better of me… its just a couple hours of a workday i had not too long ago…

now i not intending to offend anyone but i know that it may seem that way with some of the things i gonna mention here…

first off… if you so differentlyabled that everybody else hadda help you tote your equipment to and from your job site… change yuh occupation… well iz really HR who should find something else fuh yuh… seriously… it doh make sense to me… big company like that cyar get somebody else to do your wukk and if they want let you work in the office… i eh care if you say you able to work outside… coz i really do see why i should be helping you setup your things to do your job… i also shouldnt be giving you special privileges either… just coz you different…

special privileges i refer to here are based on the standards that all others abide by coz in this line of work we not talking about a parking spot or ramp… if you cyar pull yuh own damn cable like everybody else… stay in d damn studio…

i was really trying not to let the cat out of the bag as to the occupation of the person but to truly describe the situation it has become apparent that i needed to… i talking bout a camera man…

and as i buss d mark… dread allyuh seriously walking around with all da masking tape on that tripod… nah that just unsightly… i sometimes use tape on my tripod but its usually to keep cables from getting tangled… you know to have em all neat an _ish… tape them to the tripod so they not flapping in the breeze… not taping the joints so that they not slipping… naw allyuh hadda do better than that.. and allyuh iz number one… well i wouldnt like to see who is number two…

i doh know if the next fella i blasting here is part of number two but they certainly move shitty sometimes… ala the Carnival Rights issue… now pappy come and setup… food was sharing so he says to me… i go check d feed when d ting start nah… i eh have any problems with that coz iz not i who have to worry…. pappy went and get he plate ah food and sid dong to eat… yes i went and eat too… after all my ting was set up and wukkin… wait it was setup long b4 pappy reach and i still went and eat last… Pappy was so boldface he take d ppl cutleries off a table too… he eh even ask the staff for a set… so thing start and Pappy go turn round and with a bewildered look ask what happen to d audio… well i wanted to Laugh Out Loud… my boy start to flip switch willy nilly… did i ever mention that i detest many a Media Worker in T&T… they have no Training… no knowledge of what they are doing or are just plain Ignorant…

so pappy asks to borrow a headphones to listen to it… yes he know it was LOUD coz he was seein the signal beating in d RED… i wanted to slap him now… my coworker obliged and shook his head… so Pappy put the headphones on and flick what switch he flick b4 and well it was still loud… thing is the BOX he was gettin his feed from was clearly labelled as to the type of signal he was getting… so i guessin that he cyar read… if he was flicking switch so… he then hands headphones to my coworker for him to listen… and asks what is that noise? its called Air Condition… they setup d damn headtable right under the AC… so what yuh expect… coworker then indicates to me that it still very loud and distorted

now Pappy did reach before differentlyabled but he was more laughs… story eh done with him… he then proceeds to ask one of the staff… who is sharing desert to bring one for him… now i start to feel a lil shame… dunno why… coz is he who acting never see come see… pappy was playing along to all of my T&T Media Stereotypes… come late to setup… must eat food… doh have all d equipment necessary… leave someone watching equipment while he attends to other biz… read ah papers… and of course… run out of tape…

now when i see that i sometimes give thanks that i never get thru with any wukk in d Media… i doh wah be associated with that level of nonsense… or do I?!? one have equipment that more brukup than him while the other like he eh have food home…

so i calling on the Media houses and the Association to have a CODE of ETHICS for these people… prob have one but as all other things in T&T no one gives a CUSS… yeah dem who does come out and meet with the public… dem who does be wearing yuh clothes… and doh care if they draggin it… get rid of them and hire people who move professional… gone are the days of setting up wherever they choose and blocking people who come to functions… stop from wearing sandals… only women are afforded the right to have their toes and feet exposed… especially for a black tie event at the HYATT… ensure that you have all the equipment required for your job… enough tapes to record… charged batteries… proper audio cables and a flippin headset to monitor… and with utmost respect to the differently abled out there… if you cant operate on your lonesome find something different…

i just want to shoutout the fella from GISL… yeah… man does come and do he wukk… handle he stories… pleasant and have manners… not like the ungrateful ones who want to bad talk d ppl function after they reach late and miss half of the presentation…

b4 i forget… there was another camera man on d wukk as well… he reach early and setup in d middle… was asked to move and obliged… stood quiet in the back and did his thing… so until next time… i gone… yuh might hear meh if i get charge TT$4 for a short drop on the Priority Bus Route
