Road Hazard Update

My department had our CNY dinner today and the conversation shifted to Kid Meal’s driving test tomorrow.  Bouncy told Kid’s Meal to make sure that she "adjusts" all the mirrors when she gets into the car with the tester.

Kid’s Meal said, "Why must u do that?  All the mirrors will be adjusted already what ‘cos I’ll be having my driving lesson before the test."

Bouncy explained that it’s just a step that testers expect u to perform as part of the checks u’re supposed to do before u start driving (in other words, must wayang a bit).

Bigmac then added that besides checking all your mirrors, u also need to make it very obvious when u are checking your blind spots during the test… to which Kid’s Meal replied, "Oh but I don’t check my blind spots".

Appalled, I interjected, "Eh, checking blind spots is not just to pass the test leh.  It’s a safety thing that u check your blind spots before u change lanes!".

Kid’s Meal looked at me and repeated herself, "I know.  But I don’t check blind spots."

So I repeated myself, "Yah.  But u should always check your blind spots!  What if there’s a motorcycle there or something??"

Like a broken recorder, Kid’s Meal said again, "Yah. But I don’t check blind spots."

*Rolls eyes*.  I repeated myself again but Kid’s Meal said yet again, "I just don’t check blind spots."

Bigmac then chipped in, "Wow. If u pass your driving, let me know.  I’ll stop riding my bike."

Stupid is as Stupid Does

Conversation overheard between Bigmac (BM) and Kid’s Meal (KM).

BM: KM, why are u writing the minutes all in first person?  U know, as in, why do you write, "ABC says: ‘I will do this’", and "DEF says: ‘I will check on this…’", etc.  Shouldn’t the minutes be in third person?

KM: Oh… I did that because it is easier to write.

BM: What do you mean easier to write?  You just need to take down the important points right?

KM: Yah… but the meeting was in dialogue, so easier to write this way.

DUH!??!?  If a meeting isn’t in "dialogue", then what would it be in?  Sign language??

If u thought that was bad… wait till u hear what Smarties did…

After completing the renewal of 1 policy, Smarties’ boss told him that the Insured will send the documentation, etc, to their bank themselves, and there was no need to send the original policy document to the bank.

However, Smarties still sends a soft copy of the policy doc to the bank!  Exasperated, Smarties’ boss questioned, "Didn’t I tell u not to send the originals to the bank??".

Smarties replied, "Yah.  U said don’t send the original mah.  So I sent via email lor".

At this, Smarties’ boss said, "Smarties!  I want to strangle u!!!".

And Smarties (in my opinion, rather rude) reply was, "Oh shit!  Oh shit!  Oh shit!".

I mean… is that something u would say to your boss after u make a stupid booboo?
