Rotten luck

Right now, I am an extremely angry woman. I've got nothing but complaints and curses in my mind.

My streak of not-so-good luck began yesterday when I was on my way down to KL central on the ktm. I've been taking the ktm for maybe a hundred over times and yet it was the very first time I had befallen such horrendous luck.

Now, being alone on the train is a sad thing, but with the company of a book it's still bearable. And that was exactly what I did; I read a motivational book by Stephen Covey. As I was quietly reading, a bunch of college students got in at the Subang Jaya station. I presume that they are from Taylors college bcoz they were making loads of ruckus.

Being a good mannered girl*ahem* I seldom eavesdrop ppls' conversation. BUT, when the conversation is interesting, I can't help but to listen. The bunch of students are actually 3 girls n 1 guy, whose name is Max. *yea..I know his name without even opening my mouth*

Max is this guy who jz can't close his mouth, when his friends phone rang to the tune of Kelly Clarkson's Breakaway, he started singing the song -_-''

As if that isn't enough to distract me, his other friend said this,
'Hey Max, why u so 'ham sap'? Dont touch ....'s ass! You should never touch a girls' ass.'

Well, enough said. I think both u and I get the picture.

Anyways, at the very next station after Max boarded the train, the train stopped moving. It was stationary for alomst 10-15 mins without any air-condition. The only source of air we can get is the occasional hissing of the train's engine. And every single time the hissing comes, the girls would tease Max by saying,
'Max, I knew u farted! No wonder it stinks in here!'

Err...even Stephen Covey's advice on patience is useless to me. I was literally a sweating girl as I kept the book in my bag as everyone in the cabin moved all the way to the front of the train to free ourselves from the friggin' train.

When I reached the front I asked the driver, 'Rosak ke?'

'ya'

Well, that explains all. Our msian ktm is obsolete! I mean like, shouldnt the train have a back-up generator to at least open the side doors when the train breaksdown?

There isnt even an announcement inside the train! We were all sitting like idiots inside a metal box under the hot sun!

The announcement that came next was from the station itself, and it asked everyone heading to KL to move on to the opposite platform to catch the next train! Imagine, everyone inside the train filling up the entire platform! There the amount of ppl in a single train waiting...it was packed!

AS if that isnt bad enough, the next train which came was already 75% occupied!

Yet, the instinct to board the very next train kicked in, and everyone was soon squeezing n pushing. Inside the train, ppl were stacked up next to each other like tinned sardines -_-''

In KL central, I met another problem regarding the Msian public transportation again! This time its the Putra LRT. Since the queue are usually long, I prepared the exact amount of rm1.60 and used the manual ticketing machine. Guess what?

Out of the 6 high-tech looking machines available, only ONE was functioning! The one I used kept vomitting out the coins I slotted in! Pissed off, I had to queue up to get a ticket and the pace was ridiculously slow! There were two ppl inside the counter but only the girl was giving out tickets while the guy was 'busy' counting money!

I was baffled at his stupidity! Can't he see the queue? Cant he see that his colleague is tired? Didn't he even notice that the machines weren't functioning?

Oh well, I guess not. After all he is SO busy counting money and is too friggin' blind to notice anything!

THAT was yesterday, and todays' problem is regarding the telco services!

Being a loyal customer of Hotlink, I expect the services to be better. Today, all my expectations were dashed. (Yup, I am loyal. Everyone's changing to Digi yet i'm still with Hotlink and I always top up my credit on time and lately I've been using mroe than rm60 a month! Which has never happened to me in the past)

Every 15mins before I reach the ktm station nearest to my house, I would call my brothers or parents to pick me up. Yet today, the network was down!

Imagine my horror! I tried calling over n over again! I even took out the sim card to check! BUT nothing worked.

So, I had to walk to the nearest telephone booth to make the call. It was only a few metres away, but I ended up walking more than 400metres, under the blazing hot noon sun, to finally get a phone that is functioning!

I passed mayb 3-4 booths yet ALL of them were dilapitated! Blame it on vandelism, but I think the government should be doing better! Shouldn't they at least come around n replace the spoilt ones every month?

Anyways, after I called my brother from the public phone, I asked him to pick me up from the stall which I decided to have my lunch while waiting for them to come and also for me to cool down after the burning hot long walk.

I called him at 12.15pm and guess what time he arrived?

Wait! He didnt even arrive!!

After around 40 mins of waiting(and also finishing my lunch) I called him again around 1pm and he said he'll come soon. So I went back to the same stall after paying for my meal and had another drink. After waiting for another 30mins or so, he still isnt around!

I was extremely pissed off! The restaurant is less than 15mns from my house yet I had to wait for him for more than an hour!

So, I decided to walk back home, under the hot sun again!

After walking around 200metres or so, he somehow spotted me and picked me up at 1.40pm. Amazing...I was this close to killing him with my bare hands! And when I asked him why did he take so long, he casually said he went back sleeping after my receiving my 1st call!

What the f***! I'm suffering alone while he sleeps like a pig!!

Yup, I am a naturally angry woman; When the conditions around me turn sour, I won't turn sour...I would have already rotted instead!! My patience thins, and my angry grows especially when I'm hungry and when the sun shines TOO bright.

haha...anyone would feel the same way as you did, given the circumstances. a hot weather and a hot temper definitely DO NOT go well together =)

Gah, poor thang! But at least you're 10 times wiser about public transportation in Malaysia and the degree of hotness the Sun is capable of offering these days. =)
