Angry Thoughts (14/3/18) / by Muhammad Amir Ayub

Warning: foul language ahead.

1) It effing takes me 45 minutes to drive to HKL from Bandar Baru Sentul. The same distance that only takes me 25 minutes of walking. I can’t stand it!  It’s so frustrating when your plans are spoiled because of traffic. This is one reason why after more than 1 year of transfer here, I’ve only properly driven the car and parked it less than 10 times. I don't know how you commuters get through the daily grind but I just can't, as I'm just chronically fatigued as it is. Don’t tell me to just not drive in that case; I had no choice but to drive for the past few days.

2) I don't get us stupid Malaysians. We need a sign to tell people to not pee at the ablution areas of prayer rooms. We throw away diapers full of shit right next to benches near prayer rooms. We shit on the floor and walls of public toilets. We die if we don’t leave our piss on toilet rims. We have no right to demand anything out of our politicians if we ourselves are not accountable at all towards others.

 People will pee here

People will pee here

3) Have slinkies gone extinct from the face of the earth? Yesterday we tried to search for one and couldn’t find any. This is the most pressing issue of all: an angry child is a biopsychosocial-spiritual hazard (I’m currently in the chronic pain rotation).

 Since we no longer know how slinkies look like..

4) Stephen Hawking just died. The intellectual community just lost someone important. He may have been crippled but his will was stronger than most. He will be missed.

5) I find it ridiculous that any shop in a relatively low volume mall with only 25% of its seats occupied could have something as bland as bread (let alone spring rolls) run out. Where’s the inventory management?
