How was the holiday? I know I know… it’s too short isn’t it? Well, that’s the reason why I took today and tomorrow off too. Am going to stay away from the slavery system a little while longer, which probably means the coming Monday blues is gonna be more painful to bear.
Anyway, have you even encountered some people that you just want to slap their sorry face back to reality? Have you ever met some moronic souls that you’re not sure whether you should be angry with them or laugh at their moronic act? I have encountered quite a few in my life. Quite a number actually but I think I am going to talk about 3 today…
Presenting moron number 1: The get-out-of-the-way driver
It happened more than 2 years ago when I was driving to my badminton game. I was heading towards Hartamas on the fast lane in front of the palace when a car (if I remember correctly, it’s a proton iswara) tailing me rather closely. It’s quite obvious he (yes, it’s a he) was trying to get me to move out of the way, to which I didn’t comply. He was probably getting increasingly irritated cause he kept flashing his lights and honking me, urging me to move aside or go faster.
Well, I was actually going quite slow, going at about 70km/h on the fast lane. However, I did not give way, I stayed in the fast lane and continue going at 70km/h. In the end, frustration overtook my nemesis and he made a quick check to the left and as he sped past me, I think he showed me his middle finger, I couldn’t be bothered. BUT! As soon as he overtook me, he slammed on his brake so hard, the halt almost caused his car to go out of control. You know why?
Cause there were 2 POLICE PATROL CARS right in front of me going at 70km/h. WHAT A MORON! That was the reason why I couldn’t go any faster! It’s also amazing how the hell he failed to see them from behind. What a moron!
Moron number 2: The over-zealous patriot
This too happened about 2 years ago, around the month of August. I was late at work (as usual) and as I was entering the car park, there was an unusual traffic jam… in the car park! This is rather strange cause during such time, traffic is usually clear in this particular cark park. The pause seems to go on longer than expected. Then I noticed the driver in front of me got out of his car and started laughing. Not wanting to miss anything, I did that too, I mean, I got down from the car before I laugh la.
To my amusement, I got myself moron number 2. Credit to him, he was rather “patriotic” There was this Pajero with something like 50 miniature Malaysian flags glued on top of its body, including the roof of the car. There were so many, with the flags all nicely glued upwards. Now, with the Pajero being quite a “tall” car, all these flags got stuck between the pipes that were running below the ceiling. This moron had to get out of his car and removed all his nicely glued flags 1 by 1!
If you wanna be a patriot, show it in a more meaningful way! Not by having miniature flags all over your vehicle and ended up removing them cause you didn’t assess your destination before hand. Plus, that act caused me to be more than an hour late! Oh well, not that I care anyway. What a moron! And I mean him…
Moron number 3: The alcohol-seeker in Starbucks
This too happened about 2 years ago, during those times when I had to go back to office for work on a Saturday. Having partied the night before, I wandered to Starbucks Coffee outside my office to get myself the much needed caffeine. I was in the queue, and standing before me was this Chinese Type A. He was looking up at the menu board on top, as all Starbucks have that, pondering on what to order. I think he couldn’t decide on what to order and asked the girl at the counter…
”Do you have anything alcoholic?”(in a very very very heavy Aussie accent – I wish I can say it out for you to hear)
What the f**k! Has this guy ever been to Starbucks before? Which part of Starbucks “COFFEE” he doesn’t understand??? Alright, maybe, just maybe that was his maiden voyage to a Starbucks. Or maybe his mama locked him up in a room somewhere to protect him for Starbucks, cause perhaps Starbucks around his area sell alcohol.
He went through almost all the drinks in the menu with the girl, asking which one is nice and so on. I am beginning to think there is no Starbucks in Aussie. After settling for a drink (which took a while), he took out his wallet and get ready to pay. And you know what???? He slowly took out this heavily stamped loyalty card and asked for a stamp from the girl. What the f**k! Obviously this is NOT his first time at Starbucks. Alcoholic drinks?
I would have forgiven him if the girl at the counter was a babe. But, it’s total opposite (no disrespect) she was not quite a babe and I can’t help but to brand this lost soul moron number 3. What a moron!
Have you ever encountered such people before? Tell me your stories… and next time, if you ever see such people again… say it out loud…WHAT A MORON!
