i went to a supermarket yesterday. Why must every time when i enter there will be these people in front at the lobby who sells massage gadgets? They will approach my family while passing up coupons just to lure us in, to buy some shits from their department. I will tell you my history dealing with these people: One day, my dad and my mom went to a supermarket nearby Kuantan. Their mission, buy a family computer since our previous computer was too old and dusty. They ended up coming home with a fuckin foot massage. I was like what? What the hell just happened? We're waiting for a computer! Maybe the movie Transformer was true at all. Maybe they did bought a computer but the computer suddenly transformed into a stupid foot massage machine. Maybe it did happened, who knows right? How on earth did the salesman manage to persuade my parents to buy their stuff? I have to praise him for the excellent job of sacrificing my dream to play Ragnarok Online.
Have you ever being disturbed by a person from any service consultants like from the Yun Nam Haircare or from the London Weigh Management. These people, they will stand in front of their stores, urging people to come in into their shops just to try their products. Example, back in Tgb, when i was having a chit chat with my friends in the dorm, we did talked about this kind of shit. Salesman from Yun Nam hair care are really annoying. I said 'Orang yun nam kalau lalu je depan kedai mesti kacau nye..tak habis2'. Another friend of mine said, 'Aku camtu gak, padahal aku ade je rambut. Pastu diorang siap bagi aku free trial coupon plak tu..' Another friend of mine who did not have enough hair on his head heard our conversation and said, 'Jangan cakap camtu, terasa aku..' I replied, 'Why?' He answered inconveniently, 'I dapat 20 kupon'. Hahahaha..we laughed cam nak mati after he said that.
Back to the story. I went to the second floor to check out some socks. I'm going to ask you, what's the difference between free and absolutely free? Isn't the word free have already brings out the entire spectrum? I saw a pair of socks at the cloth section. The sign said, 'Buy 1 Free 1 for Rm 10'. Then when i took two pair of socks to the counter and hand over a 10 ringgit bill, the indian person at the counter said, 'Uhh....that would be 10.49'. I replied, 'Aik? Isn't the other pair is free?' He answered, 'Emmmm....(with a long pause)...haha...it's not absolutely free..' What the hell is going on!? Is this is the effect of the rising inflation in the country? No.no..no shit...i say we really should look into this seriously. Maybe this is the reason why there was racial tension in this country for so long. Maybe somewhere in the future, what if the day comes when Malay people do discriminate the indians and the indians will get angry and say, 'We thought we were freed since independence?' Then we will answer,
'Well..not absolutely free...'
