The Luxury of Sleep and the disturbance from people who have no life.

On a normal day, I wake up at 4am, be at the office by a quarter past 6, do my work the whole day, and I get home by 8pm at the earliest.

Usually, I have reports and paperwork to be done still. I get to sleep at around 11pm or if I am lucky, at 10pm. If I am unfortunate, I get to sleep past 12mn. And then I wake up at 4am again and the cycle goes on.

I wake up early so I can beat the traffic. By waking up early I get to be at work before 7am rolls in. If I leave the house even 15 minutes later than my usual time, either I get to work at past 7am or worse, nearing 8am.

Traffic is horrendous in my place for reasons that boggle my mind. And that goes the same for coming back home from work.

As such, sleep is a precious for me. Saturday mornings are spent sleeping in. Usually I wake up around lunch time, unless I have errands that I need to do in the morning. But more often than not, I sleep in.

My family does not disturb me.

Sunday mornings also mean waking up around 9am, do errands, then take an afternoon nap by 3 or 4pm, wake up at 7 or 8pm to have dinner, and off I go again to do some quick paperwork, sleep by 10pm, and then wake up at 4am.

For somebody who sleeps an average of 4-5 hours a day, I get iffy when somebody disturbs me for no valid reason whenever I get the chance to rest.

Last night was utter torture.

I was lucky enough to sleep around 9pm. By half past 10, I got a call from somebody I don't know. It woke me up. I answered it. The person on the other end just kept saying "Hello". If you call me and you don't introduce yourself immediately, I will put the phone down. I put the phone down.

As I was about to fall asleep again when the person called again. I ignored the call. But I texted the person "Who is this please?".

The reply I got "Ako nga pala si Jun. Pwedi (YES... I think he is, no offense, from a province in the south because of his spelling) b tau clm8 if ok lang sau".

Translation: "Hi I'm Jun, can we be cellmates (meaning cellphone mates) if it's ok with you".

Obviously it's NOT OK. What DECENT and EDUCATED person randomly calls at past 10 in the evening and asks you to be cellphone mates? I personally believe people WHO HAVE NOTHING BETTER TO DO does those things.

Doesn't he know that there's the internet for such things?!

I put my phone on silent mode and ignored the text message.

But he kept calling and calling and calling. He called at 11:30pm, he called at past 12mn. My eyes look so bloodshot that the guard earlier wanted to check me if I had A(H1N1)!!!!!!!!!

My sleep is ruined. And now I have a splitting headache.

And I want to hurt somebody. Seriously. Grrrr.
