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."
