Kids should learn to have abit more common sense.
I was just going up the lift back from buying lunch when these two kids entered the lift with me. I pressed 14, the younger of the two pressed 9, then 8. This did not escape the older's eye, who immediately exclaimed, 'Why d'you press that for?!'
'I want to climb stairs.'
'You do that for what? Haiyah you waste uncle's time.'
My years in ELDDS have paid off. I was rather affronted but my face betrayed almost no sign of it, apart from having raised my brows earlier when the younger pressed 8.
And to make things worse than it already was, the older repeated lamentingly, 'You waste uncle's time.' And he turned to me and said, 'Sorry ah.'
When the doors had closed on the 8th floor the boy repeated his apology. At least he had the brains to do that. Both times I gave the most cheesy smile on Earth in acknowledgement.
Uncle... uncle! Can't you even tell between an adolescent and a full-grown man? Or do you go by height? Anyone over the second metal strip will be called uncle... Anyone below the first will be called oi.
