2 pallets of stock arrived and hell began. Already, my department has not much space for new stocks and yet 2 pallets of stock came. I first attempted to stack up high up but then was told by the assistant manager not to stack up too high. That is contradictory because my supervisor wants me to stack up high and then the manager forbids me to do so. Okay, I heed the manager advice and create a new column to stack. My area now really resembles a warehouse, with lots of goods. I will be expecting 120 more remote control cars tomorrow.

Today was unlucky for me. I was trapped in the goods lift for 15 minutes. At that time, there were 3 victims including myself in the lift, and one of them was a lady. That lady was a promoter but acted like a distribution assistant to me. She banged the lift, shouted like nobody business, scolded vulgarities, and all-in-all, she was an impatient person. I tried to keep my cool so as to conserve my energy and not to perspire. We were saved in 15 minutes time.

Sigh..

My opinion on PRUinvestor guaranteed plus product

I got to know of Prudential's new product PRUinvestor guaranteed plus only recently.

From agents, it is said to be 1) 100% Capital Guaranteed at maturity, 2) 2.5% p.a. interest guaranteed (Total 13.14%), 3) able to accept both cash and SRS, 4) and telling people application date for such "cool" product is ending soon but that's not really the case. I do not like the way products are marketed by agents.

1. 100% Capital Guaranteed at maturity

It is not really 100% guaranteed if it is guaranteed upon 36 months.

2. Sometimes marketed as 13.14%

This is a common tactic to "fool" aunties and uncles who are unaware of the compounding effect.

3. Able to accept SRS

At the rate of 2.5% p.a., I would say investing SRS monies in such product does not make sense to me since the new CPF interest rate structure is close to 2.5% p.a. too. At least CPF is truly 100% capital guaranteed.

4. Publish application date to be earlier than actual

This tactic attempts to make consumers make r…

Installed FortiClient recently but the challenge in disabling the application/service from running automatically on every start-up annoyed me. Attempt to stop 'FortiClient Service Scheduler' only return 'Parameter is incorrect' error message.

An article on Technet help solve my trouble. To stop FortiClient from starting automatically, try the following:

Switch Startup type to Manual.Restart your computer. FortiClient should not be running automatically the next time round. Hope it helps.
