Cutting in line!

Have you ever had people cut in front of you in a queue. Well, orang2 ini memang kurang ajar.
Unfortunately, rude people who cut in queue will always exist. Some with reasonable justification, and others with no reason what so ever. In Malaysia, I have experienced this happening to me many times. Especially the queue to the ATM. Though this is indeed a small matter, we should never tolerate such behavior. We cannot keep quiet cause that's going to ruin our mood. We have to stop queue cutters because, it makes people angry and will ruin someone's day. And that someone is going to ruin someone else's day and so on and so on. It will be a social chain reaction gaining negative angry energy outwards towards the community. Eventually, it will gain enough energy to be a social nuclear explosion. Hehehe, of course I'm exaggerating, but you get the idea. So stop the chain reaction occurring and escalating into a social nuclear explosion, you have to stop the chain reaction at the core.

The video above is one of the common methods that people use to cut queue.

Of course there are some exceptions.
1) Some people cutting a queue going to the toilet. They just have to pee and they can't wait. Usually ask, "Cik tolong, saya tak tahan nie, karang terkencing kat sini"
2) In cases of emergency, some people cut in line to use a telephone booth to call the police. You shouldn't be angry at this people. Their justification usually goes, "saya kena pakai tepon, emergency nie"
3) A pregnant with water just broke...."ketepi, beri laluan, nak terberanak".
I'm sure there are a few exceptions not listed here.

In any other cases, I have never tolerated queue cutters and always confronted them. However, in the past, I always thought that I didn't handle the matter smooth enough. I tend to get angry or end up in an argument. I guess, the best way to handle this issue is to remain calm. Some websites suggested the following method:

1) Get a witness. Ask the person behind you or in front of you if they saw the person cut in line. Doing so will help you get people to agree with you.
2) Nicely and quickly approach the person cutting the queue by politely asking a straight forward question. Like, "excuse me, I believe there is line here that starts over there and it looks like you just cut in line."
3) If an argument starts, I suppose its just not worth fighting over it. But the main idea is remain calm.

So be calm is the main idea here. Before blurting out ##$@$# .."get in line you idiot". Instead breath in, breath out.....find your zen  and rethink and follow the suggested steps above. good luck and save the world from a social nuclear explosion.

A shit load of Diarrhea

This blog seems to be updated once every year or so. Such anomaly almost occurs as sparse as the sun eclipse. Its starting to look like a ghost blog. Nobody comes here and nobody leaves a comment. Well, this is entirely my fault. I never put aside a little time to give this blog a little TLC. Anyhow, I feel like I was out of stories to tell. Or some are just too personal to be told online. Believe it or not, writing  in a blog is like standing out in a park and shouting out your mind. If you don't filter what you say, eventually, someone will throw rocks at you, just to get you to shut the hell up. Just as an observation, a lot of people think personal blogs are personal. In truth, nothing is personal on the Internet. If you want it to be personal--just for your eyes only--well, keep the traditional diary. Or an alternative digital diary that is not so traditional but is well encrypted for your eyes only. If you are more of the, I want to tell my friends only gossip group,...well, there is such a thing called facebook, where you can filter what your friends see and who you add in your circle. If you don't like facebook for some reason. There is also google+ and a lot of other social network app. Of course there are pros and cons of being in the wave of social networking in this modern age. However, the rule of thumb is, it works just like the traditional social fabric that you and I are used to even before the Internet exist. It's as fundamental as a 2 year old child learns how to make friends. Its the simple formula of being friendly and don't poop on others. So the idea is if you don't shit on other people, people won't shit on you. And like the famous saying, what goes around comes around. Translated for the ignorant, if you don't like others to shit on you, don't shit on others. Cause shit goes around....really it does.....and people will eventually find out, and when they do, they will vomit a shitload of crap on your face like diarrhea. So whats the moral of this story? Safe your face, don't shit on others.

I have no intention of spoiling your appetite for your next meal,
I wanted to update my blog, and nothing comes to mind,
All I can think of is shit that looks like oat meal.
And so I bid you farewell and advice you to be kind,
All this talk about shit, makes me feel like i need to go shit for real,
Its time for me to go cause can't hold my behind.
