There Was This Prat

Saturday, 2 September 2006

A couple of hours ago, Han and I went to Nasi Kandar Pelita at SS2 for supper. The place is well-ventilated and better yet, we managed to find a table away from the main body of the crowd. Seated at a few tables next to us was this bunch of young adults wearing WWF vests. I suspect they were done collecting money (not data) for the day, as there was one fella there who was wax lyrical about sales being the heart of yadda yadda yadda. We weren't too impressed with this guy--he was smoking like a chimney, for starters, but at least he was on the other side of the floor (and he represents an organization that's supposed to be about environmental conservation?).

Anyway, after we had finished our food and were nursing our cups of teh tarik, the said fella (let's call him Ah Beng) plonked himself at the table right next to us and lights up yet another cigarette. I really didn't want to breathe in so much smoke, so I asked him if he would mind not smoking for a while.

Me: Excuse me, could I ask you not to smoke for a while? That lady behind you is pregnant, and so am I.
(Ah Beng looks at me with a raised eyebrow, turns round to see if what I was saying was true, then turns to his friend in front of him)
Ah Beng: What to say...? (shrugs and bends down to snuff out the cigarette on the floor)
Me: Thank you very much.
Ah Beng (looking up from the floor): But loud noise can lah?
Me: Excuse me?
Ah Beng: Loud noise okay lah?
Me: Well, yes I'm alright with noise.
Ah Beng: AHAHAHAHAHAHAAAH!! Loud noise caan!! (laughs gleefully)

Don't know whether to be mad at people like that, or feel sorry for them. I'd sure think 3 times before donating to WWF through these people though.

Feel sorry for him. He’s probably brain damage by ciggie smoke when his mom was pregnant.
