Things that annoy me #214

People who asked me to wait for them but take their own sweet time!!

This morning, i got into the lift and was about to press door-close when this lady from my co shouted.. "WAIT WAIT! WAAAAIT!"

So i pressed door-open and see who's that...& it's some lady from my co.... who needs a diet and a "face lift".

I waited.. for about like 10sec ore more..cos she wasn't running.. she was taking her own sweet time and saying thank you as she approached the lift... Hey lady, you think you're on the stage waving at everyone and saying thank you as if you are the beauty queen is it??

If you cannot run and will take such a long time to get into the lift, then wait for the next one!!

Anyway, i gave her a fake smile.. cos not so nice to be rude to someone from the co. Must flex...

Dick lately not in office? How come never talk about him nowadays? Hehe..

Anyway, a good solution to this problem to let out a silent killer fart. But then thing is, you'll end up killing innocent people including yourself! Hehe..

Dick didn't come and bother me the past few days. He has been a good boy! hahahaha

Fart? no lah.. very pai seh leh.. it's just me and her in the lift..she will know it's me.. haha

Jayaxe said...

No! Silently fart, then be the first to wave your hand very obviously in front of your nose ala Mr. Bean. She'll then panic, saying, "Not me! Not me! Not you meh??!" Hahaha.

Hmm.. I think if I was in the same situation, I'll just close the door. Hahaha.. So evil.

This is what we call 'give them one inch, they take a yard'.

Also hate giving fake smiles! Then imagine when she enters the lift, you either:
1. sense an awarkard moment of silence, OR
2. Find some common topic of conversation to survive til you reach ur floor.

I hate it! No wonder I'm so unpopular...

I always have headphones on. So I would have pretended not to hear her. :)

My office building has "intelligent lifts". In the lobby, you press the floor where you are going to and it will indicate the lift that you should take, like Lift A or Lift D. There are no floor buttons inside the lift.

I derive a perverse joy in seeing people who rush into lifts and then their puzzled looks when they realise, "Hah, cannot press floor one ah ?" And they have to sheepishly get off as soon as possible.

Next time, pretend you’re pressing the ‘open’ button, when you’re actually furiously stabbing the ‘close’ instead. Complete it with the innocent ‘I-don’t-know-why-the-lift-is-closing’ kind of look :)

FF said...

I like your suggestion Bubblemunche.

Fat Fingers said...

hahaha Jayaxe and Bubbles, good suggestions. I shall try it when i need to haha but i hope not!

Popcorn & FF : yeah i feel awkward sometimes when i'm in the lift with ppl from my co. I will pretend to read streats..

Zen|th : i wanted to press door close too.. but i couldn't..she was too loud. Even the deaf can hear her i think.

Wah Cheh zhai meen, your office lift is so cool! I wish we have that.. but my office only have one lift!

I think i'll take the stairs from tomorrow onwards..

Bubblemunche said...

Aiyah, you work on which level? Haha, but stairs sounds good... shapely legs!! But I'm a lazy bum :P....

FF: Haha, to be honest, I always pull that one on my COWorkers, as Fingers so nicely put it....
