On Saturday, me and my cha-bo-lang went to Funan Centre to walk walk see see. we encountered the following incident whereby me find it very amusing.
As we were eating some French Roti and drinking some soup, we heard someone calling out:-
Me stopped drinking the nice soup and looked at the direction of the sound and saw a fat Chinese man probably around the age of early 20s talking to me.
"Excuse me, can you give me $2?"
I looked at him : he had long curly hair, wore a round-neck T-shirt and a 3/4 long pants carrying a nice haversack.
Judging at what I saw, he was not in any form of handicap and he can actually speak English.
Although many a times, me do not mind helping the elderly or handicaps by giving them some money, I did not think that man deserve any money from me at all.
I looked at him and shook my head and continued to drink my soup.
I looked at him one more time and he said the same thing again probably thinking that me did not hear what he asked for, "Can you you give me $2?"
I looked at him and once again shook my head.
"I am very hungry..." The man looked at me and pleaded.
I looked at him and shook my head for the thrid time.
The man looked at me and said:"Please...."
I shook my head for the last time and ignored him and continued to drink my soup.
The man seeing that there was no way I was going to give him the $2 he pleaded for, said something and walked away.
That word that came out from his mouth was "Idiot."
We were very shock to hear him sprouting such word and after saying that insulting word, the fat man walked away and approached an Indian couple. Though me could not hear their conversation but the Indian man after hearing what the fat man had to say, pull out his wallet and gave him $2.
After collecting $2 from the Indian man, the fat man approached another 3 men but no money was given to him.
I was thinking to myself : That fat man was really lucky cos if he were to sprout such insulting word to me 10 years ago, me would have insulted him back with the following words "You filthy lazy fatso moron beggar asking for money and insulting people who didn't give in to your begging., @$%#&@....."
If he were to meet me and gave me such insulting word 20 years ago, me will defintely "sayang" his face with my punches. Yeah me bad.
What has become to our current world? Healthy man going around asking for money? There's never free lunch in this society and the most incredible part is throwing insulting words at people refusing to give him money, piangz!
