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
