That Classmate...

I got damn irritated during classes for the last module. Why can't people just learn? Or is that fella deaf?

1st 2 days of lecture, not around, never mind.
3rd day, came in, never learn. Break time, never learn. Come back from break also never learn. Go home, still never learn.
4th day, ditto above...
5th day, ditto above...
6th - 9th day, ditto above...
Ok, I cut that fella some slack. I think I can count with one hand how many times he "learned".

What happened was that by break time on the 1st day, we were all "taught" about the problem with the blardi door. If left to close on its own without someone holding it, it would SLAM! And I really mean BAM, SLAM damn loudly! Thus, we are all nice people and started "guiding" the door to close quietly. 1st 2 days passed peacefully since that fella not around.

On the 3rd day, that fella walked in, SLAM! Walked out, SLAM!
The next time he walked in, the following conversation took place...
Lecturer told that fella in a very nice tone to shut the door gently.
That fella: I never slam the door.
Lecturer: Yes I know. But would you mind? (or something in that context)
That fella acknowledge.

On the 4th day, SLAM SLAM still happened. So, from then on, whenever that fella walk in or out of the classroom, I would cover my ears.

Although that fella would not leave the class when the lecturer is talking, sometimes that fella does leaves during class times when the lecturer is switching between teaching aids. Imagine SLAM SLAM happening at least 4-6 times within 3.5 hours... It's a bit un-tahan-able.

well, maybe need to report to the facilities people for a long term solution. :)

Anyway I remembered when I was in the army the door to the company office also has this problem. One day I walked out and the door went BLAM! My CSM shouted at me.. "CHOW RECRUIT!! YOU SLAM THE DOOR?"

Me: "NO, ENCIK, I NEVER SLAM THE DOOR!!"
CSM: "CHOW RECRUIT.. YOU SAYING I LIE IS IT?"
Me: "NO, ENCIK!"
CSM" FxxKING CHOW RECRUIT, DROP 20!!"

20 push-ups later, I am 20 push-ups wiser. The next time I come out of the Company Office, I guide the door.

XZ: I agree need to talk to the people in charge, never thought of it... Haha... Goondu me...

Hmm, do punishments really work? Apparently I think that fella wasn't around for the 1st 2 days cos of reservist...

Oh. Punishment doesn't really work. But for me I simply hates straining exercises and PUSH UPs is one of them.

And since I don't want to do more push ups, I learn not to allow the door to slam.

Lol!

But the door is really slam loud loud. Very noisy... Hehe...

Here's my suggestion...

It's not that he doesn't know, and it's not that he doesn't learn. Allow me to be blunt that he simply can't be bothered. ;)

Seen heaps of such people around. They know they are not supposed to do this and that, but they just can't be bothered.

Ed, maybe you are rite... The "bo chap" attitude I guess... If-it-doesn't-concerns-"me"-why-I-be-bothered kinda attidue rite?

Maybe I should label this as "Ungracious Society" as well? Hehe...

ed said...

Which is how Singapore earn the title of "A Gracious Society" although there are a small handful of people who really tries their best to be graceful.

That's so inconsiderate. Paced, i think u should bring this matter up to the management or the facility people so that they can retify the door problem. If not the continuous "slamming" of the door can really hurt our ear drums.

Here's the thing girl. When Jonathan Lai aka Himbo wants to slam the door as and when he wants, ignore him rather than do a reaction. That's exactly what he wants from people. A reaction. Attention. Just don't bother about such outcasted people. That's why they are called that way anyway.

Firefly, guess what, I don't even know his surname... lol
