    As complexity rises, precise statements lose meaning and meaningful statements lose precision.

One day, just one day, I'm going to simply stand smack in the middle of the door and refuse to move. When they start complaining, I going to sweetly say, "All of you block the doorway until like that, how am I going to get off?"
    hehe
    sorry

I left the box on the meeting table and he still did not get the hint. Finally our lady VP got so irritated she told him to wipe his nose in front of everyone.
    I can imagine Roy and other colleagues must be laughing discreetly while this guy wiped up his nose.

    whoa, that sure is gross and Roy must have witnessed the whole procedure, probably taped it up, replayed it twice, to have such detail description.

    mmm, i dont think singaporeans are all that bad. there are people who are very courteous & helpful. but of course as humans, we only notice the bad points of people rather than the good.

    okay my take.
    yes the usual mrt rush. its quite crazy.

    mmm, and i dont know if you guys have experienced this. but i consider myself a fairly fast walker especially when i'm late. & i get very pissed when there's a big group of people walking in front of you. they walk so slow, i could have sworn i saw a snail zoom pass them. i said excuse me but they ignored me the 1st time round. so okay nevermind, it's alright, im just hopping from side to side with urgency.
    i said excuse me the 2nd time & they still choose to ignore me.
    i was really late for work, i picked up my hp; pretended to talk to someone albeit in a very loud tone. "sorry but i will be late, there's just this bunch of people who just decided to smell the muddy grass this morning and walking so slowly i could see a snail zoom past them with its slime and all"
    haha, they just quietly parted like how Moses parted the Red Sea to let me cross.

    the only other thing is i hate it when they are smoking & they blow the smoke to your direction. only apparent in coffeeshops but the last time i checked, i think smoking is banned in coffeeshops!

    I think most of the forummers had already covered all those pet peeves of mine here. The one I find missing is here is one of my most hated one. Guys who thinks they have such huge melon size scrotum between their legs and have to sit with their thighs open forcing people to legs aside or prevent others from sitting. And worst are those who goes further by actually keeping shaking their legs too while it is touching yours.

    I am not shy to give you a piece of my mind if you caught me on the wrong day and I will shoved back physically.

    There's no rule saying how long you can use an ATM. why wld anyone purposely stay at an ATM for a long time? It has to be they have many transcations/not sure what to press etc.

    I have a colleague who has a very very bad habit, He PICK his nose very often, and I mean very often, he is so use to it that he even pick his nose while talking to people. Its like so natural for him. But the rest of our colleague are hinting him to make him conscious of such bad habit.

    Many of those things that are mentioned have happen to many of us, sometimes when we try to "counter" such behaviours we are making ourselves behaving like those people we complained about. Insted of being at the receiving end, we may become those who commit such acts.

    Its quite a thin line, but as along as we are conscious of our behaviour, we know how to draw the line.

    The most important factor is Respect, Self-respect and respect to others.

    But such behaviour will Never go away. There will always be here to stay, we can only say so much on the forum, complain to our friends, some will not listen, most doesn't read newspaper forum or are involved in a forum that we have here.

    The public transport syndrome, for me I'll will also "fight" for my space, my right and for people who know the "rule" of respect will get the same amount of "respect" or graciousness from me.

    Its the same even on private cars. How may of you drivers here have met reckless, inconsiderate, rude, slow, racing, blur drivers.

    There are always 'Ugly' people, there are also 'beautiful' people, we must also make more effort to make those people we know be beautiful people. Then the society on the whole will be more beautiful.

And she shouted, take yourself lah! Never give $ still want me to service you.

    panadol cannot be taken with milo? must be habitual like when you were growing up that your caregivers always give you plain water with panadol. he he.
