Frustrating...

It was a long weekend...

On Sunday after church, hubby & I together with our lil baby went paying a visit to our dear friends (married couple) who were manning the stall at Mont Kiara bazaar. Infact I always envy the wife who has a lovely husband that will help her out every single Sunday without fail to operate the stall, as he's actually a Business Unit Manager in an American pharma company who earns big bucks! Ok that's besides the point...let me tell you what happened next...

After lunch with the couple at Mc Donalds which is right next to the stall allocated, the 2 hubbies were catching up & busy talking. While the wife left us & went talking to some potential customers, I thought of bringing baby in his stroller for a walk around the bazaar. I was walking slowly passing those stalls while trying to shop for some cool & cheap jewery, I came to a narrow junction where I couldnt get through with the stroller....so I wanted to reverse & take another route...

Right at this point, there was this lady in her 40-ies holding a young girl around 4-5 years old, right behind me, frustrating and angrily saying :"Make up your mind man!" WOW! I WAS SOOO ANGRY! I turned to her immediately saying :"Not that I cant make up my mind, but my stroller cant get through this path!!!"

I think if not because my baby was with me, I would have shouted at her...Sometimes I dont understand why would someone who obviously have had babies before (since she was holding this young girl) to say such non-understanding statement. I was upset because she sounded like me & my baby has caused her to delay her precious 5 seconds, what nonsense!

Anyway, it was a Sunday and we just came out from church, so I decided to let it go...no point dwelling into small matter like this...

no wonder we have more & more ill-mannered youngsters out there nowadays... all 'well taught' only by their folks.

You are right. No point to yell with people like this and ended up like them...

I'm sorry you had to deal with that stupid person. It's irritating when people like that come along and put you in a bad mood with their arrogance. Rude obnoxious people like that are very common in my town. They're always pushing and insulting complete strangers! Like this one time I was at the pharmacy, and this stupid girl thought I had cut in front of her in line when she was way behind me. It was only because I got there before her. Then she started to bother me, even while I was talking to the pharmacist! She was one of the most rude and stupidest people I've ever had to deal with! I would say these kind of people were raised in a barn, but most cows and pigs have better manners than they do! You just have to ignore them, then they'll hopefully go away and leave you alone.

i used to take LRT to work. klcc station is always overcrowded...and on that particular day, i wanted to drop off at Dang Wangi but was pushed all the way in my this stupid uncle.

When the train was leaving Kg Baru, approaching Dang Wangi...i politely asked people to give way so i can squeeze thru the crowd.

Then this uncle who pushed me in said "such an idiot, wanna drop off so early then don go in so far la. stupid".

=_=

and i cabut. :P

Looks like the ppl in KL is just as bad as those in singapore. You meet this kind of ppl all the time in the MRT.
But if you look at it from the lady's point of view... maybe she rushing somewhere or maybe she had a bad start of the day :)
Trying to keep your temper is a must in front of kids... u dun want to teach them the wrong things... will keep that in mind when I have my kid around me.

dio brando - i still think, no matter what the reason/excuse is, one shouldnt be so rude to a mother with a baby, simple as that...
