Is A MAD MAD world...

Scenario 1:
Time: around 1.45pm
Date: 28 June 2007
Venue: At a shop nearby Bukit Bintang

A Chinese auntie is cleaning the walkway in front of her shop, she even tie a string around to avoid the public from stepping on it. Suddenly, an Indian lady accidentally steps on the pavement. The Chinese auntie yells at her: "Oi, talak otak ka? Mau kasi orang marah ah? Bodoh betul!"

Morale of this scenario: Be careful when you are walking, especially when you are walking on people's five foot way. If not you will be ended up being yelled like hell...

Question: Why the Indian lady is being labelled as 'bodoh' and 'talak otak'? Isn't 'Buta' or 'talak mata' sound more proper in this case?



Scenario 2:
Time: xxx
Date: xxx
Venue: In a bicycle shop in a small town called Tapah

A Malay boy is checking out the bicycle stickers which are hang infront of the shop. Then he asks A Chinese lady who seems to start staring at him since he enters the shop: "Auntie, ini sticker berapa?" The Chinese lady answers: "Dua ringgit, mahu ka?". The Malay boy answers: "Tak mahu lah auntie, lain kali aje lah...". Fire starts burning in the Chinese auntie's eyes...and finally she shouts : "Lu makan manyak kenyang kah? Tak mau bili lagi mau tanya tanya!"

Morale of this scenario: Never ever fool around with the shop keepers. Else...You will be ended up being scolded like hell...

Question: Is the saying 'Customers are always right' still can be used nowadays?

For 1st scenario : I awalys careless and seldom watch around when I'm walking...thats y hit somthing such as tiang, rubbish lah..like these 2 days, I was kena the tiang..

For 2nd scenario: "Customer awalys right" will not apply all the places, even go to China also will be scolded if you didnt buy after negotiated the price.. Or should I say is depend the person, either is customer more garang or shop owner more garang..
