Stat your Monday with ... rudeness & 'nice' people!
One of my top grouses is people who cut queues. Those damn farkers who cut a mile long of cars waiting patiently and selit in at the last minute. at the junction and contributes MORE towards the long wait. For Jack's daily commute this is especially annoying at the Jalan Kinabalu - Jalan Sultan Ismail turnoff.
Today, a very nicely maintained Honda cut in front of Jack right at the junction. This being my pet grouse + it's a bloody Monday and I don't wanna go to work so damn early but I have to cos traffic is a killer + traffic is already a killer with Jack having been on the road for close to an hour + a weekend of being heckled about wedding wedding wedding (xxxx - a lot of unsaid words here that I cannot put up for political reasons), I did the KL road-conduct manners thing - flashed the stupid bugger (sb) and waved a cute little finger.
At which the sb took offence (oh, he was so doing the correct thing all this while) and started staring cock at me through his rearview mirror. He slowed down and started crawling, which is extremely intelligent of him considering he cut queue to save his precious time and now he's spending it wisely by trying to annoy me. Hahaha.
Kereta cantik tapi tak pandai bawa. Kesian. Maybe not sb's fault also, maybe his mak bapak forgot to teach him manners.
Anyway he put up his staring game till I took of my sunglasses and stared back at him, at which sb dropped both his gaze and frown. Maybe he's a God-fearing Melayu man, cannot make eye contact with females. So pious. He unfortunately took the same route as I did (maybe he thought I was tailing him into the inner roads) but went further that me as I turned off to park. Which gives him the advantage of knowing where Jack is lepaking right now.
Let's hope Jack has all his wheels and has not acquired a brilliant new scratch by the time I go back today. Couldn't care less, though. I hope his balls get infested with maggots and his eyebrows catch fire in a hilarious freak accident. Happy Monday!
I've been told countless times that a Spectra is an oil-guzzler.
I never paid much attention before as .. err.. well it was not much of a concern. But now that I'm sitting bored in Jack daily as I commute to work I've been noticing things more. Like, the odometer is quite interesting to watch. And it's quite fun to reset at every full tank to see how far Petronas Primax fuel can go (okay, so I've not made this a habit before. So?)
Jack clocks in barely 380km town-driving for a ful tank of ~RM75. Wow. Time to re-do my finances.
Jack visits Universiti Pertanian Malaysia (UPM) to get little bro registered last Sunday. The resgistration process was quick and very well coordinated. I was impressed with the internal traffic management.
Step 1: Park car at designated 'Tempat Letak Kereta Ibu-Bapa'
Step 2: Take bus to Kolej Kelima. There are dedicated buses for the respective colleges, frequent enough not to be crowded even with the mountains of bags and pails and teddy bear (?).
I woke up late this morning and Jack got stuck in traffic for 1 hour 10 mins. With amazing luck I managed to replicate Jack's action - by getting stuck in the office lift with two just-as-lucky colleagues.
