Someone: What?
Euri: It’s where you buy and sell stuff on the Internet.
Someone: How do you do that?
Euri: Uhmm… It’s like Ebay
Someone: What is Ebay?
Inner Euri: Where the heck in the mountains do you live?
Euri: It’s like this. You register to our site as a member. Then you can post pictures of items you wanted to sell or buy stuff that other people sell.
Someone: How do you pay?
Euri: You can pay using cash. It’s called Bills Payment. Or you can use your ATMs to pay. Both Bancnet and Megalink are okay.
Someone: How do they send the things I bought?
Euri: They ship the items.
Inner Euri: Don’t tell me, delivery services also doesn’t exist in the mountain where you live.
Someone: What if the things I bought weren’t delivered.
Euri: Then you’ll get your money back.
Someone: How will I get my money back when I already paid?
Euri: We use this certain system at our site that’s called Escrow System that holds into your money first until the transaction is done. Then the seller can use Payout to get his/her money. So in case such things happen, you can get your money back. (I think? O_o)
Someone: Oh, sweet. What was the other site you just mentioned?
Euri: You mean, Ebay?
Someone: Yeah. Which one’s better?
Euri: Don’t ask me that question.
Inner Euri: Well, duh. I work for, hello? Earth to Mars? Of course I’ll say is better! Although, Ebay does have more items on sale and members are more active, in my opinion. Still, wins in site features. Nyeh!
Someone: Oh, yeah. You work there.
Inner Euri: You just realize that now?

Lessons Learned:

  1. When you see someone you haven’t met for a while inside the jeepney, the first thing they ask after a “How have you been?” is “Where do you work?”
  2. Nobody knows what a “prototyper” is. Who does, anyway? O_o
  3. I need a tape recorder that replies to the same old question like “where do you work?”, “what is a prototyper?” etc. to save me from evolving into an answering machine.
  4. If I were asked where I work next time and of what kind of company Corporation is, I’ll answer with, “it’s a company like Ebay” so that I wont be ask what an “online buy and sell” is.
  5. I could also work as a CSR.
  6. People who live in the mountains doesn’t know what Ebay is. They also don’t have delivery services. But, they do have ATMs. They swipe it off a tree and a gorilla’s arms will come out from some hole in the tree and reach their cash or something. X-P

  8. @ Afef ~
    Err.. No. I actually code pages into HTML/CSS according to the layout provided by both the web designer and UI designer. In general terms, it’s supposed to be called “HTML Specialist” or something like that. But since here, we consider HTML pages to be “prototypes”, I am called a prototyper (of course, such term doesn’t exists). But prototypes, in general term, are the reference design and/or somewhat like of a blue print.

    I think, yours is a worse situation. The questions never stop! X-P
