10.03.2011 | 大呼小叫

由輕鐵站行返屋企途中, 我多次見到某個後生仔, 對住同一間屋叫門, 仲係大大聲由地下嗌到二樓嗰隻[聲明: 唔係下面相中人].. 本來都唔關我事, 之不過今時今日每人都有一部手機啦係嘛?? 嗌得咁辛苦, 做咩唔打電話呢?? 我唔明囉..

畀著係我, 肯定唔叫門啦, 我就一定先打個電話:「喂, 我到喇, 你落嚟啦!!」.. 我覺得大聲叫門搞到隔離鄰舍(尤其係當朋友個名係周街人皆有嘅情況), 有啲尷尬囉, 唔知大家又點睇呢?? :p
many times when i walk home from the LRT station, i saw a young guy shouting for his friend from outside the house, and yes, from ground floor loudly to first floor [disclaimer: not the one in the photo above].. none of my business actually but i just wonder since almost everybody is carrying a handphone nowadays, isn't it more efficient to give a call rather than just shouting??

given that's me, i will definitely not shout but always make a call, "hey, i'm down here, get out!!".. i personally think it's a bit awkward and embarrassing when you shout for your friend and caught the neighbours' attention (especially when your friend's name is very common like tom dick harry).. do you think the same like i do?? :p

  8. You had your neighbor banging or jangling at the door grill at night because they want someone to open the door?

    I wonder why they cannot call and decide to make a ruckus instead. :(

    ReplyDelete
  9. And yeah, if people shout, shout in front of your house, nanti people think you got Ah Long chasing you! LOL

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  13. oh by the way good thing you manage to take a photo of him without being caught.... or else he will make another more scandalous act LOL

    ReplyDelete
  14. Environmental friendly guy....ha ha ha!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Whoa! You even took a picture of the guy. Planned ahead? LOL!

    He probably has his reasons for doing so. We'll never know, will we?

    Whatever... some good has come out of it. He gives you an inspiration for a blogpost.

    Btw, SK, noticed the sun is still shining when you get off work. So lucky!

  16. Let me guess: his friend's hp is on silent mood or off. Door bell not working so have to shout..haha.

    ReplyDelete
  17. He should have used a brick and throw at the door if there is no response..no lah a small stone would do the trick ~;).

    ReplyDelete
  18. Perhaps he is trying to save money, battery etc? :p

    ReplyDelete
  19. Besides this way of calling friend sounds better and let you feel the good old day again. :D

    ReplyDelete
  20. everyday u pass by he'll be shouting there? wow... get a hp la wei... :P

    ReplyDelete
  21. cannot blame him also. Maybe his friend was zzz and put the phone in silent mode. My friend's bro lagi teruk. will only on his handphone when he wants to make calls.

    ReplyDelete
  22. You have a point, but thinking back the old days when there was no handphone, calling out to a friend didn't sound embarrassing :P But ya, I get your point! I don't think I would wanna scream out and attract unnecessary attention :P

    ReplyDelete
  23. Hello... i will do what you do too.

    Maybe, he dont have a phone? hehehe Do you believe?

    ReplyDelete
  24. Maybe, he still a student - no phone allowed at college.

    Maybe, he thought his voice is so sweet?

    ReplyDelete
  25. I m sure he has a reason to shout.. :) or maybe he wants the neighbours to hear him shout..

    ReplyDelete
  26. Shouting or honking loudly outside someone's home can sometime be irritating.

    Should use the doorbell or give the homeowner a buzz on the phone.

    ReplyDelete
  27. student should keep their money mah, so shout is free of charge.. wakaka

    ReplyDelete
  28. 21世纪了应该有电话吧!这样很累咯~~~

    ReplyDelete
  29. To save phone calls (for him) I guess... but some people really get used to shout loud at others' name in public ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  30. hahaha.. i have the same feeling!

    ReplyDelete
  31. 可能佢嚟追數,招數之一呢。

    ReplyDelete
  32. 哈哈!还以为你要暴露你家的照片呢!
    我家对面的邻居安娣更可怕,
    每次没带锁匙出门,
    回到家就在大喊大叫,又拍铁闸,
    叫家人开门。
    噪音让附近的邻居都难受。>_<'
    好像时常那样,好像她没有锁匙的。
    真让人讨厌! @$%&E%#....
    好心她去做一串锁匙啦!!

    ReplyDelete
  33. 我也是觉得打电话比较妥当!

    ReplyDelete
  34. 那家里主人的名字,全都被路过的人给知道了,免费为自己的名字给打广告了呢!
    按铃,播电全都比在门口大喊大叫来的妥当吧!

    ReplyDelete
  35. You bet the phone probably just doesnt work! Hahaha...

    I experienced this, there was this uncle knock knock my neighbours door, calling from outside. I walk to the door and asked "uncle, why dont u call leh?"

    He said, I called many time already but no answer! Kesian him, and he said he had try another side's fifth floor also, just couldnt find the person he was looking for...

    So probably this guy also have the same problem eh? :P

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  38. 可能没有电话咧?

    ReplyDelete

  41. @ 追梦者:
    哈哈, 不要說到"文化"那麼嚴重喇, 其實也是小事一宗, 看個人喜好喇..

    @ Caroline Ng May Ling:
    haha, yalor, i will feel very embarrassing if i shout.. even if i have to, the most i'll try twice, if still cannot then i definitely will make a phone call.. eih, it's very awkward when you call your friend's name, and a few other people just come to respond to you right?? :D

    ReplyDelete
  42. @ lina:
    hmmm, you are right, somehow can be quite annoying if that happens at night right?? well, i guess nowadays it's quite rare for people to shout, i think most people will just use the phone.. haha, but i suppose Ah Long's ways is more aggressive right?? :D

    @ bluedreamer27:
    haha, that is actually not the guy, i just grab the photo from interenet.. yeah, to me definitely won't shout if i don't have to, just use your phone to call.. if there's no response means your friend is not available yeah??

    ReplyDelete
  43. @ Pete:
    errr, but shouting there also creating noise polution woh.. hahahaha!! :D

    @ HappySurfer:

    ReplyDelete
  44. @ Bananazஇ:
    errr, i saw him a few times actually, so cannot be that his friend's hp is off and door bell not working.. i guess he's just used to his very own basic "talent", haha.. haha, small stone, that is very 60s, hahaha!! :D

    @ Tekkaus:
    haha, i have no idea why he's not calling his friend directly.. anyway, really just a small matter and as long as the neighbours are not feeling irritated that's absolutely fine to do that.. :)

    ReplyDelete
  45. @ Medie007:

    @ Small Kucing:
    errr, i saw him quite a few times already so cannot be everytime his friend was sleeping mah.. OMG, only on the phone when want to make call, then why have the handphone?? just use landline lor, haha..

    ReplyDelete
  46. @ iamthewitch:
    yeah that's a different story in the old days that we just have to shout.. but time has changed and we all now have handphone right?? so won't it make more sense to just give a call?? yalor, imagine when you call your friend's name, and many other strangers come to respond, hahaha :D

    @ CH Voon:
    errr, no idea lah.. or maybe he just don't want to waste his talk time lor, haha.. errr, sweet voice?? a guy shouting woh, can be sweet meh?? :D

    ReplyDelete
  47. @ reanaclaire:
    really no idea why he just have to shout.. i guess most probably don't want to waste his mobile phone's talk time lor..

    @ Mei Teng:
    yes, that's exactly what i wanted to say.. it could be irritating to the neighbours, should give a call personally to the person you want to look for..

    ReplyDelete
  48. @ Wois:
    yeah, i think so lah.. but i think for student, can just set a time and meet up, so don't even have to shout and call also..

    @ Chris Chia:
    就是嘛, 這樣來叫喊, 一來很累, 二來可能給鄰居帶來干擾呀..

    ReplyDelete
  49. @ Dora:
    yeah, i guess so.. because he's a college student and most probably want to save up phone calls.. :)

    @ kyh:
    yeah, it feels so embarrassing shouting out loud right?? and might irritate the neighbours too..

  50. @ 海市蜃樓:
    點睇佢個樣都係純情學生哥一位囉, 絕對唔係收數佬囉~~

    @ Ashley:
    哈哈, 這照片當然是隨便從google哪裡借來的.. 嘩, 那個auntie也很恐怖吧, 我就是覺得這樣會干擾到鄰居呀, 為什麼不直接打個電話呢?? 電話有沒有人接, 就知道家裡有沒有人嘛.. 呵呵, 你看來真的很討厭她哦, 居然在這裡罵粗話, 呵呵~~ :D

    ReplyDelete
  51. @ 发白日梦^^:
    對囉, 打個電話就肯定知道你要找的人在不在家嘛..

    @ bluecloud:
    哈哈, 是囉, 變成每個鄰居都知道你叫什麼名.. 還有最怕就是一叫, 很多同名的陌生人一起回應你, 哈哈!! :D

    ReplyDelete
  52. @ Casendra:
    cannot be everytime also cannot work, because i've seen him a few times doing the same thing already leh.. hahaha, that uncle really kesian lor, called so many times and no response, then most probably the person he is looking for is not at home..

    @ thomas:
    hahaha, actually no right and no wrong to shout.. it's just a personal preference for communications mah.. :p

    ReplyDelete
  53. @ Ayie:
    haha, but then just have to be sure that all your shouting will not irritate your friend's neighbours.. :)

    @ cindy:
    可能是可能啦.. 不過你要說現在的學生沒有電話, 可能性是非常低囉, 隨時他們的電話比我們還要先進的..

    ReplyDelete
  54. @ edward:
    以前就梗係啦, 以前唔係個個都有電話架嘛.. 家陣就唔同啦, 攞起個電話一call, 仲方便過你係咁大聲嗌通街囉..

    @ suituapui:
    errr, i think no doorbell lah.. and yes, maybe student always want to save money lor.. :)

    ReplyDelete

  61. 唔好意思,無意間創入你嘅部落格,發覺你的文字好有趣,其實對於你呢一篇文章我係有D意見啦,竟然已經喺門前仲打電話,係未有D奇怪叻?!或者呢D叫做文明病,係未我哋太依賴身邊嘅通訊器材,如果當一日我哋忘記帶手提出街就等於失去左身上嘅其一器官呢?哈哈。。。純屬個人意見^^如有冒犯请多多见谅^^
