Entitled

Was chatting with friends over the weekend. Similarly, they said something quite true.

“You think only millennials are entitled? Everyone regardless their age is entitled!”

He gave some examples of his friends but now downgraded to mere acquaintances. A friend lost his job so the friends around him assisted and rallied behind him to look for new job.

He assisted to help this friend by sending resume to a few organisations he knew. After the friend got a new job from his contact, there was no news. Nobody knew he got the job until he updated his Facebook profile. Not a single word of thanks to the friends who helped him. Entitled much?

A student asking for assistance to be placed on internship. He assisted by pulling some strings and making calls. The student went for interview and got in. Thank you sir! No.. Nothing… Not a single word of gratitude. Maybe she felt she’s the one who did all the work… So she doesn’t need to thank me. No… This is entitled!

Then another friend looked annoyed when she received a message on her phone.

“What’s the matter?”

“Ah. This friend in Taiping now. Asking for recommendations for what to eat.”

“Oh.. Go Yat Sun la”

“Naah.. She only msg me when she wanted something.”

“Oh.. Those kind of people huh? Are you going to reply her?”

“Not this time. Not forever.”

I thought to myself. Why, am I still being nice or still want to help these entitled people? Is it because I am too nice? Or sometimes maybe, I am entitled myself?

I just think I deserve better friends.

Tedious

Went to Seremban during weekend and I was searching for pictures of food in my blog to check out what did I ordered previously, only to be greeted by photobucket’s msg on 3rd party hosting. Sigh. Really regret didn’t use my wordpress to load photos previously. I guess I have to find some time during weekend to “embed” photos back into my old posts. Tedious tedious!!

Wanted to blog more often but somehow couldn’t find time or even the mood to do so. Guess I will just make do with sporadic updates. They say, once you put things out in the internet, there’s no turning back. I guess it’s true. I miss the days I wrote my daily muse in a note book. Perhaps could do so, starting now onwards. I think as one gets older and with the technology getting more advance now, everyone look for instant gratification. Nobody would spend time to pen some thoughts or just put a note or two for keepsakes now. Most people just post photos to remind them of where they have been, what did they eat, who they were with..  I guess it’s rather meaningful too. I like it when Facebook reminds me of how little my niece was.. or how young my mom used to be a few years ago. It’s good that now, we could keep memories digitally. Hopefully, for life.

Work has been a drag as usual. But definitely better than the old job. I look forward to meeting my colleagues everyday in office, making jokes here and there and planning for lunch! Now ever since I work in KL centre, most friends made effort to keep in touch and actually took the trouble to drop by on Fridays for lunch with me. I feel so blessed to have such friends. Catching up with an old friend I haven’t seen in 10 years! I am so happy that she’s a mother to a two year old boy now. Learned that her mom is now on dialysis due to failure of both her kidneys, after a prolonged suffering from diabetes. She didn’t take care of her diet, couldn’t be bothered, hence this. A wake up reminder for me to keep on exercising and try to eat as healthy as possible.

 

Waterworld

It’s like water world out there today! The rain started at 5.05 pm. By 5.15 pm, there’s flood everywhere. Weird thing is..even hilly areas are flooded.

Car turned into a hovercraft for several occasions sending my sis to her friend’s place for a gathering.

I was looking for an alternative route to go home but my Waze died!!! Omg… I gave up and followed the only route I know.

The other route I was supposed to take is also flooded so I guess it’s better to stick to my familiar route.

Prayed hard rain will stop so I could go onto my next appointment without flooding!

Prayer answered. Thank God.

Yesterday while lining up at Jusco Kepong for my purchase, there were these mother and son in front of me.

I was talking to my cousin sis and she told me purchase about Rm100 will receive Rm10 jusco voucher. The lady in front of me overheard our conversation and then she asked us if purchases from supermarket count?

I said I was not sure. You could check with the cashier. The cashier said no. Only for purchases at level 1 where clothes, shoes, beddings, etc. Exclude supermarket.

We had a friendly small chat while waiting for our turn.

Then the woman made her payment. After that it was my turn. Then, I was waiting for my purchase to be punched into the register when the woman asked for her stamp. Mana dia itu stamp?

The cashier said she has given to her.

27 Jul-4
For those who are unaware, this is the promotion that has been going on at Jusco. For French pot. Every Rm30 entitled you to a stamp.

So the woman raised her voice and said there was no stamp!

The cashier got a bit annoyed and said loudly, “AUNTY! YOU SUDAH CHECK DOMPET YOU?” (Aunty, did you check your purse?)

The word “AUNTY” sort of triggered something in the woman’s brain.

At this point, I was already feeling restless and wanted to get out of it asap.

As I was signing the bill given by cashier, war of vulgarity had begun. Actually it’s one sided. Only the woman kept shouting and scolded the cashier for accusing her of stealing. We were like wtf? She didn’t accuse you of stealing! She just asked you to check your purse!

It was then she threw her LV purse onto the counter and shouted. You check yourself! Where got?????

Her credit card came out flying. Her money too.

Not wanting to create further scenes, the cashier gave her extra sticker.

That didn’t shut her up. Then she refused to pick up her purse and the cashier handed her the purse back. It was then all of us saw the sticker sticking onto her Rm1 note. So the cashier said to her, see that was the sticker!

The crazy woman and son didn’t even apologized. She was so aggressive that she continued to spew profanities!

Binatang! She shouted at the cashier and left.

I was too shocked and upset to be standing in the middle of their exchange.

I was actually very angry because I didn’t stand up for the cashier. Just like a typical mind your own business mentality. I should have stood up for the poor cashier lady.

This made me really upset for the rest of the evening.

Money doesn’t buy you class. So what if you have an LV purse, LV handbag etc?

You call people “Binatang” when you yourself behave even worse than animal.

For goodness’ sake, it’s only a stamp. You still need to buy over Rm1800 just to get 60 stamps in order to get a free pot!

You have money for LV but no money for pot? Cook your stew in your LV la. Bloody hell.

Sorry. Have to rant coz yesterday was in shock to warrant a respond.

Eye Twitching!

Right eye twitching like mad all morning! Hopefully something good might happen. Perhaps can go buy 4D this evening. Lol

There’s an ache on my left jaw. Nearing the ear. Since I am prone to heatiness, that might just be it. Should lay off chocolate drinks for awhile. I think I just had a tiny KitKat 2 days ago… but it couldn’t be that KitKat right??

I remember having a whole full size bar of KitKat which gave me sore throat and pain in the jaw for a few days.

Never seem to learn. That’s why I hardly eat chocolates. If I crave for one, I will just eat one tiny piece. I am ok with chocolate ice cream or cakes though. Not a serious fan of chocolates but I would definitely make an exception for the salted caramel chocolate brownie from Awfully Chocolate. Ah… I must get my ass down to Singapore.
