today i went to eat roti canai at the usual joint,
the mamak was a little 'marah-marah' today,
blame it to the new boy who kept on taking orders,
without cleaning the pinggan mangkuk.
and i sat there on one empty seat observing the other
customer, there was one indian guy who finished his
sarapan talking to the TV
'alaaa cakapsenang laaa!! cuba buat tengok!!'
there's another two who came just to chit-chat.
(Their teh tarik was half full)
there was also another table with one father with nice
looking misai trimmed by pro's i guess, sitting more
obviously as their skin color is fairer then all of 'us'
with his son who's hair was a bit like that guy hujan.
Helmet cut kot...
they were talking like they were enjoying their moment,
waiting for their sarapan to come.
'Roti canai please'
'having here or take away?'
'humm one having here, 3 to go'
'original or spicy?'
'ehh!!? silap kedai ker?'
No.. the last 2 line was just my imagination.
just after 2 minutes, my roti canai came.
eh? why is it that the father and son's order havent came yet?
ohh..now i have the feeling of being frown upon...
i can see that the son is asking his father something
and the father looked towards me. I guess he's asking....
'daddy, why is it that that guy got his roti canai first?'
now what do u think his answer will be?
ohh.. tak nak bayangkan...
How awkward the feeling is...
We are living in a world where favoritisme is practiced
everywhere, in restaurant, roads, the que to buy your icecream,
work place and even under the bridge where homeless working
hard to find a place to lay their kotak for the night.
I wonder if they too felt the same way when they're
being choose upon just because their race is the same
as their boss's.
The same way as I felt when my roti canai came first before
theirs.... The same way as that guy who got promotion
before everyone elses just because he is a....... 'RaceName'
What about u pocketeers?
Will u feel awkward if u are chosen just because your name
got 'binti' in it... Because your boss is also a lady, so she
promote another lady rather then the opposite sex.
will u feel awkward?
