Terima Kasih, Thank You, Shea' Shea', Rumba NandriWhy is it so difficult for some people to say “thank you”? Does it really take that much effort, or is it laziness or pure rudeness?
Just this morning, after putting up with someone who finds it hard to say thanks, I finally exploded!
This morning’s KTM Komuter was delayed (again!) for 40 minutes. After boarding it, it was totally packed to the brim. I clutched onto the ceiling bar… When the train moved, I turned and saw a woman getting out of balance and almost fell, just because there just wasn’t any more room on the handrail.
Pitying her, I offered her my rail handle, since I was taller and could reach the actual rail without the handle. When I offered it to her, I smiled and asked if she would like to use it… Guess what was her reaction?
She just reached out for it, with an arrogant expression, without a thank you nor a smile! Such disgusting reaction!
It really got me very pissed!!!
Just after that, I said to her: “Excuse me, may I have that thing back?”
She gave me a confused glance, and let go of the handle… and I grabbed it, and with an equally arrogant tone, said “thank you” to her.
Thereon, I saw her swaying in every direction, as dictated by the train’s movements. Thankfully, she just kept bumping into people around her, and not landing on the floor…
Serves her right! In future, don’t scrooge on your thank you or courtesy smile!
I can be a very nice person… yet, I can also be a very super-duper cruel man if you start it with me!
