Every time people ask me about things I don’t like, there are many things that popped out in my mind. I consider myself as a slightly cynical kind of person. I surely don’t want to be what I am or how my brain works, but how can I stop it? I just want to be genuine about myself, no hypocrisy for every single life aspects. I complain to almost many things. Down below are few things that I don’t like:
People who feel sorry to the wrong person
A couple of weeks ago, my flat mates and I went to a shopping mall to buy groceries. We use online transportation to get there. A friend offered us to use a discount code she got from her friend. The fixed fare was Rp 26.000,- for one way trip, after she enters the code the fare automatically turned into Rp 2.000,-. So, technically and logically we pay the driver only for Rp 2.000,- cash. Then she asks me how much we pay for the driver, I answered her straight that we will pay him for Rp 2.000,-. But the funny thing is, she got slightly shocked at the moment and says that it’s too cheap to pay the driver with only 2k because she felt sorry about the driver.
Well, for me it doesn’t make sense. How is it possible for her to say that it was too cheap? Then what was the discount code she got from her friend for? Isn’t the company aim to make the customers more convenience in order to improve their services by gaining customers’ satisfaction? Didn’t she think that it’s part of marketing strategy to attracts more customers? Then I tell her, if you feel sorry about the driver, think about the poor people out there who has no money to survive, the people who has no food to eat, the people who has no place to stay, and so on. I was silent along the way back home after I told her that. Didn’t she realise that the driver has a job? This is what I have always complained about people who claimed they are well educated. Well, I don’t claimed that I am well educated but I’m just using my brain.
People who littering around
Everyday, I use public transportation, it’s called Busway. I usually choose to sit in front line seat of the bus so I can enjoy the view of the street, the people, the vehicles that passing by, the trees, the buildings, or to check the drivers what they do when we stuck in traffic. One day, there was a young driver, maybe he is middle 20. He adjust the music’s volume from his smartphone loudly which made my ears get sore, and the songs he played was annoying but surprisingly I didn’t complain about it because I think people enjoyed it. He ate boiled peanuts at the moment while driving and guess what bothered me? He threw away the nut’s shell out of the window which made me furious. I was staring at him for minutes to make an eye contact which I aimed to admonish him, but he didn’t notice me. I couldn’t hold it and asked him straight to stop it.
Maybe for him it’s not a big deal to littering the garbage around because he might thought that the street janitor will sweep out all the garbage. Okay, he might be right, but how if thousands of people do the same thing? Meanwhile, they keep complaining about the flood that might caused by the garbage itself. I wish I have Doraemon, he may have a tool like a flashlight, a tool to make people’s brain working, so by the time I turn on the flashlight then I point it out the light straight to the people’s head then the light goes inside to their brain and voila!
Girls who complain about gaining weight
Every time I heard or read their status on social media complaining about this, I laughed my arse off. It’s totally funny yet kinda make me sick. Seriously, guys, why they are so lazy to apply healthy life for the sake of thir own body? Everytime I meet my friends, they’d say, “It looks like you lose weight a bit? Are you on diet?”/”How is it possible, you eat a lot but you don’t get fat?”/”Wow, you look fresh!”. Anyway, I thanked them for all the compliments and I’m not on any kind of diet. It’s just about dedication that I have to avoid unhealthy food.
Please take my simple advice. First, pay attention about what you consume for daily basis. Choose boiled food instead of fried food. Second, drink water at least 8 glasses a day; 2 glasses once you get up in the morning (Japanese people take 4 glasses in the morning to keep their skin glowing), 1 glass at brunch, 1 glass at lunch, 1 glass at 3 pm, 1 glass at 5 pm, 1 glass at dinner and 1 glass at night (one hour before sleep to reduce heart attack risk). Third, avoid all kind of processed sugar food & beverage like; snacks and soft drink, take juice without sugar/milk instead. Take less food that contains carbohydrate; eat rice one plate at lunch and a half at dinner (5-7 pm and stop eating after this hour), don’t eat more rice if you are still hungry, take fruits or just drink more water. Fourth, don’t be lazy to move your ass! Pardon my language. I mean, exercise is very important, at least take a walk for 15-30 minutes a day. There are many simple exercise videos on the internet to burn the calories. Once again, it’s about dedication. Despite of these steps will make your body stay in shape, you will get your skin glowing, trust me. Do it for every single day and thank me later.
I would never ever agree to all form of racism. Why people judge others through their skin colours, races or even religions nowadays? I’m so sick of this!
People who ignores the rules
One day, when I took a busway to go back home, I met two girls–call them millennials–who brought food inside the bus and ate it while during the trip. The smell was covering all over the bus. Then automatically I made a few cynical gazes (like usual) at them, deliberately. Didn’t they read about the rules stick to the bus’ window explains that the passenger are not allowed to eat/drink/smoke on the bus? Beside it’ll produce weird scent of the bus and disturbing all passengers’ comfort, it will fouled the bus scope. I was mad. But then they finally stop it.
People who have memory issue
I don’t blame people with this issue, it happens to me sometimes because we have many things running inside our head. But tell me how to deal with this? I literally wanna cry everytime I remind them about what they have been told me or they have promised or what they have done to me but they didn’t remember it at all. It’s disappointed. Should I write it down on the note complete with the date, hour and their initials, so they will remember again once I show them the note? *sigh*
People who spit around!
Seriously, people? It’s disgusting! Do it in fckin toilet!
People who has body odour
I’m sorry, I seriously can’t stand with this. There is a new intern guy at office who has this issue, I couldn’t help myself when he approach and talk to me. Ugh! Didn’t he have time to take a shower in the morning before started the day? At least applying deodorant.
People talk something bad behind people they don’t know = gossiping (?)
I sometimes do gossiping too, but I don’t like talk about people whom I know based on their social media unless how weird they react to something, then I’ll tell to my best friend and laugh about it. It seems most people nowadays value others based on what they see on the surface. They talk about people they don’t know without knowing them deeply or their personality.
One day, I met a friend, we haven’t mingled for years. Out of nowhere she asks me about my friend’s sister who I found her style cool and bold. She mentioned that my friend’s sister–let say Melati because I have friend whose real name is Mawar, looking perfect only on the picture she saw on Instagram. She used to be a cool friend until she mentioned it which makes me down. Even if you are The Duchess of Cambridge, you can’t say that, my friend.
So, that’s a few things I don’t like but mostly about human behaviour which sometimes happen to me but I keep trying to change to be a better person for every single day as possible.
