Sports break:Phoenix Petroleum denies charges of smuggling, non-payment of taxes

Phoenix Petroleum denies charges of smuggling, non-payment of taxes

Phoenix Petroleum expressed surprise with the news reports that the Bureau of Customs has allegedly filed charges against the company.

While the company has yet to officially receive a copy of the alleged complaint, it deems it necessary to issue this statement.

The company strongly denies any allegation of non-payment of excise taxes and/or non-submission of importation documents.

The company has been paying taxes religiously and its records will clearly belie these unfounded accusations against it. As a matter of fact, the company is among the top taxpayers in Davao City, where it is based.

The company believes that the BOC should exercise caution and fairness especially if the accusation is damaging to the taxpayer. In this case, there was no such process taken making the filing of the complaint highly unjust, arbitrary and oppressive. It unfairly damages all the hard and honest work that the company has exerted in building its name.

The company does not take this accusation lightly and is currently consulting legal counsel on all possible courses of actions.PR

Sports break: Lessons

Received this info from a friend and I could not help but share this to you.
A crow was sitting on a tree, doing nothing all day.A small rabbit saw the crow, and asked him, “Can I also sit like you and do nothing all day long?”
The crow answered: ” Sure, why not.”
So, the rabbit sat on the ground below the crow, and rested. All of a sudden, a fox appeared, jumped on the rabbit and ate it.
Lesson: To be sitting and doing nothing, you must be sitting very, very high up.
Lesson No.2
A turkey was chatting with a bull. “I would love to be able to get to the top of that tree,” sighed the turkey, “but I haven’t got the energy.” “Well, why don’t you nibble on some of my droppings?” replied the bull. “They’re packed with nutrients.” The turkey pecked at a lump of dung and found that it actually gave him enough strength to reach the first branch of the tree.The next day, after eating some more dung, he reached the second branch. Finally after a fortnight, there he was proudly perched at the top of the tree.
Soon he was promptly spotted by a farmer, who shot the turkey out of the tree.
Lesson: Bullshit might get you to the top, but it won’t keep you there.
Lesson No.3
When the body was first made, all the parts wanted to be Boss. The brain said, “I should be Boss because I control the whole body’s responses and functions.” The feet said, ” We should be Boss as we carry the brain about and get him to where he wants to go.” The hands said, “We should be the Boss because we do all the work and earn all the money.” And so it went on and on with the heart, the lungs and the eyes until finally the asshole spoke up. All the parts laughed at the idea of the asshole being the Boss. So the asshole went on strike, blocked itself up and refused to work. Within a short time the eyes became crossed, the hands clenched, the feet twitched, the heart and lungs began to panic and the brain fevered.Eventually they all decided that the asshole should be the Boss.
Lesson: You don’t need brains to be a Boss – any asshole will do.
Lesson No.4
A little bird was flying south for the winter. It was so cold, the bird froze and fell to the ground in a large field. While it was lying there, a cow came by and dropped some dung on it. As the frozen bird lay there in the pile of cow dung,it began to realize how warm it was. The dung was actually thawing him out! He lay there all warm and happy, and soon began to sing for joy. A passing cat heard the bird singing and came to investigate. Following the sound, the cat discovered the bird under the pile of cow dung, and promptly dug him out and ate him!
1) Not everyone who drops shit on you is your enemy.
2) Not everyone who gets you out of shit is your friend.
3) And when you’re in deep shit, keep your mouth shut!
