Tom what?

For the past few weeks, I have been hearing some weird sounding term being used occasionally by my workmates. I had asked "what?" a few times but it was reiterated so matter-of-fact-ly that I did not dare seek further clarification on the term. Maybe something was wrong with my hearing or I was just bad at interpreting pronunciation of a common term.

I didn't give much thought on it (and didn't have much time to do so honestly) until today when I heard it again. And I finally found out what it was.

Funny how today I felt for the first time that I was contributing to the project by being able to explain to a legal colleague what LPD was. Just shows that I wasn't the only one clueless with all the abbreviations and neverending sentences. Legal language is really getting to me.

By the way, LPD is 'latest practicable date'.

First you surprise me by pushing me into the sea.
And when I'm just about to find equilibrium, you take it all away from me.
Then you give me a chance or more like an ultimatum to take up a challenge.
I said ok.
And now you want to cut my wings again.
Pushing me back to the situation I was so miserable in (although it was only for 3 months).
I really don't understand what is the purpose of dangling a carrot in front of me and then taking it all away in less than a month's span.
Either I've made an enemy somewhere.
Or it's time to move on.
