common courtesy + premenstrual syndrome

just read nahlah’s + widie’s entry on lack of common courtesy amongst malaysians, on the road, in general.

they used to bug me, them little, little things.

it used to bug me when peeps try to initiate small talks at a play; like d’uh someone’s on stage performing. it used to bug me when peeps interject when another is giving a presentation. it used to bug me when peeps don’t acknowledge let alone thank the waiter/waitress who’s just served them. let’s not go on to driving etiquette, which, once upon a time, can make me go botak.

but sekarang my attitude suka hati korangs lah, asal tak step on my toes i leave you as you like it but don’t look at me weird when i thank the tollgate teller.

what went wrong really? when did them politeness start eroding from our society?

i mean, i look at my late grandparents, they were so very courteous, i went so very humbled watching them.

ok, fine. ‘tis part of the process; social development amidst economic development. but we’ve got references from other developed society. why not use them to ensure that we don’t repeat their history? keeping the yin and the yang balanced.

ok, fine. we’ve short circuited many of the problems developed nations had gone through.

so now, what’s the point of this post? saja premenstrual syndrome. (i like being perempuan, blame everything on premenstrual syndrome, everyone go quiet. don’t go jeles-ing guys) :op

superdzu said...

is this a special post for zeek eh...silap...cik pms?

she memang no manners.
always so rude.
i agree.

i always thank the toll girl/boy.

zuhri said...

oh well, most important is to clear ur conscience and do it on ur own. do it kalo depan diaorang, hoping they would follow suit. you can't move the mountain, but u sure can move the pebble under ur feet.

as for pms, it's totally out of my league, so i better shaddap.

oit. mumtaz malam ni! why u didn't reply my text? changed ur number? barred my number? hahahaa

Erra said...


cool ... i'll use pms for my ben & jerry's lust :op

hahha zuhri ko mangsa ke dua, aku yg pertama. :D

hmm .. eden maleh la nak komen psl menda2 nih. nyakitkan hati jek.

tido jap la ...

Erra said...


amender nyer yang menyakitkan hati? enlighten me please.

my tersurat, i’m sure you’ve all noted.

my tersirat from the whole post. a problem, if you amplify on it, it'll be a serious nuisance to you, but if you choose to make it minute, you won’t even notice its existence. when we know how to bersyukur, there’s less stress.

on pms, i was just mocking. we have awareness, we know what to do, we know what is best, we act upon it, we are not that weak or are we?

bertique said...


i malas nak komen on the courtesy part of the malaysian ler .. ;)

wah lain mcm jek ur comment, marah ker? it wasnt intended 'that' way, u got it wrong - i wrote it badly.


Erra said...

Erra said...

emi said...

Cik Puan Muda Stress said...

korang mesti best bermumtaz without me kan?


tapi tak jeles sangat sebab i penat yang teramat.

tido dlu!!!!

bertique said...

mumtaz how? no picture ker??

Desparil said...

actually, the pms excuse can also work in a guy's favour.

say you're working with/for a girl. then some problem occurs.. you can put the blame on the girl when the boss asks and just say.. "that time of the month kot"...


agus said...

Uh oh, it's that time again.

I guess it is just called coutesy these days coz there's nothing common about it. It makes some people nice, sweet and special. How wonderful.

Erra said...
