26.03.2013 | 不知所謂

[Volume 8 Issue 3, #1694]
城中某大廈內有呢個戶外空間, 其租客咖啡屋喺度擺開幾張檯俾吸煙顧客使用.. 不過呢啲座位都係俾等接送嘅人佔領多, 好多時候你會睇到等接送嘅人貪方便就咁喺度齋坐.. 算, 因為我都係其中一個, 反正咖啡屋都唔理.. 但係今朝就見到一個女人, 一個屁股坐低就叫侍應拎走個煙灰盅, 佢做出個好臭嘅動作示意.. 唔係喎, 佢係齋坐一滴水都冇同人買, 就拎出大疊文件攤住個檯面, 跟住就開始做嘢..
  • 如果佢唔吸煙又討厭煙臭味, 冇人強迫佢過嚟坐㗎噃!!
  • 啲煙灰盅係咖啡屋提供俾吸煙顧客嘅, 佢又冇買嘢飲, 就唔係顧客啦, 咁有咩資格投訴呢??
其實好多時候, 我哋週圍都出現好多呢啲不知所謂嘅人, 明明受惠於人但係又覺得自己好應得咁樣, 懶係應為自己受過教育但係就做出啲毫無理由嘅行為, 其實令到其他人更加鄙視佢哋.. 大家對於呢幾點又點睇呢??
there is this outdoor space in a building in town, where its tenant cafe places a few tables for smoking customers.. but these seats are more casually utilized by people waiting for pick-ups, you can all the time see people taking the convenience to sit there without ordering anything from the cafe.. fine, i am one of them and the cafe doesn't actually bother.. but this morning i witnessed a lady sitting down, ordered the waiter to move away the ashtray claiming that they smell horrible.. and nope, she didn't order anything from the cafe, but just took out her policies and documents, occupied the seat and started working there..
  • if she doesn't smoke and hates the smell of smoke, nobody forces her to stay in that smoking area!!
  • the ashtrays are setup for the cafe's smoking customers, but she didn't even buy anything, meaning she isn't a customer, so what rights has she to complain??
many times we see vain people around, enjoying advantage yet taking things for granted, thought they are so educated but what they did never seem to be reasonable at all, which may make others despise them even more.. let me hear what you think about this..

    1. That's what I'd do also.

      Just move it away.

      Then, wash hand la.

      No need to order people around.

      Or maybe can ask staff help, but with a smile.

    4. ya lor....just move the ash tray la....she thinks she is big taukeh meh...one ash tray also cannot move

      Delete
    5. yeah, what's so difficult to move that ashtray aside?? i think moving it by myself is far more simple and convenient than i have to ask the waiter to do so.. it's like, don't push what you do not want to do to others, agree??

    1. Cannot marah also because these people will be the first one who will make a lot of fuss and complain if kena tegur. :(

    2. why cannot marah...if me will ask her what she wanna eat...else pi berambus

      Delete
    3. yeah, very true!! nowadays those who are making complaints are those who did the wrong thing first and those who started the mess first.. how pathetic!!

  4. Good morning SK, Fing Fing and semua sekali gus!

  5. This lady should have sat inside but perhaps she was afraid of the cold air con. These days I also saw many cafe outlets becoming a meeting venue for business talks. Starbucks near my home has got special sections for meeting areas upstairs!!

    1. typical kiasu la...wanna save money and yet wanna eksyen like that

      Delete
    2. nope, if she were to sit inside then the waiters will notice her for not ordering anything, that's too obvious.. sitting outside on the other hand, she thought i will be safer to occupy the seats without the need to make any order.. yalah, wanna eksyen but then so stingy..

  6. I actually met my client who is a CEO of a listed company conducting his meeting with consultants there and it opened my eyes. On checking further, I realised that was a proper meeting area for people who preferred casual and relaxed atmosphere! Time has changed la Ah boy.. We should have bloggers AGM there too! Ask Mr Chairman Buruk SP to fix a date.

    1. My hubby had his interview (when he was headhunted to join a Danish bank) at Starbucks. kekeke

      Just chit-chat style. Less formal. ;)

    2. Wait for SP ah....cham lor....sun may rise from the west leh....

      Delete
    3. yeah, i think there are more interviews and meetings being conducted in less formal atmosphere, and i think this is not bad at all.. people do not have to be so tensed up, and when the people get more relaxed, that's actually the true himself or herself, that's what i think..

      SP only eat grass and workout on his new toy now.. no time for us~~ :D

  7. Last weekend in Singapore, I waited for a friend at Starbucks outside Swissotel. The whole big place was packed with students doing their homework and revision there. Overhere I often saw our students using McD outlets instead. So where does Ah Boy do his reports and revision??

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Aiyoh TM,

      In Japan also you see students doing revision at McD.

      But if they are not inconveniencing anyone, let them be la...

      McD at Bandar Tun Hussein Onn is filled with students too. But then, most at least eat a burger there.

      We'd occupy a table at the Mamak for hours also, just drinking a cup of teh tarik sometimes. kekeke

      Delete
    2. Ya lor and McD have free wifi leh...for starbuck is more for working people la

      Delete
    3. of course McD is more affordable lah, there are still students who hangout at high class cafes (to me high class, but to them just normal kopitiam lah).. haiyoh, Ah Boy is poor student lah, cannot afford to stay in Starbucks, the most he goes to McD only.. and i will never occupy the seats without ordering anything wokay?? :p

  8. Used to it..


    I ever see people sitting in certain eatery place chit chatting away without ordering anything, not even a drink...

    1. i think it's fine if it's not packed.. when there is no empty tables and other customers are waiting, then it's a problem..

  10. Then again I believe if we wanna sit and wait in someone's restaurant or cafe we must at least order a drink.

    1. exactly!! it's something unspoken right?? that's a courtesy to the place as well as the customers, be fair..

  11. But of course.

    We live in a time where people feels entitled to get things done for them.

    We are living in a selfish society now.

    Some more, where got class to do things on our own.

    That's what maid are for, at home.

    And service staff for, outside of home.

    Trample and look down on them.

    Sigh...

    1. well, i never have a maid before at all.. and i always serve myself more than the servers serve me outside.. unless it's necessary and i don't have the access, i think doing it myself is more convenient than having to ask other people and wait for them to do that for me..

  13. I do it sometimes. Lepaking without ordering anything because I just want to have a short break or kill time.

    But it's got to be a place that's not crowded la... like Starbucks at Bangsar Village II. Sit there quietly, and enjoy free wi-fi also. ;P

    1. yalah, i always feel uneasy if i don't order anything but just occupy the place, even when there is no one around.. but this one, haha, sometimes too tired standing and since everyone is doing that, i just follow lah~~ :D

      Delete
    2. lepaking without order i think nearky everyone also have done before la but not to the extend of asking staffs to move the astray like that la...it crossed the line already. Not only that she didnt give business to the outlet but make more work for the staffs

      Delete
    3. exactly!! if she ordered something at least reasonable to ask for service lah.. but now she is just sitting there taking FREE advantage, i really think that's such a maggot lah~~

      Delete
  14. I want to believe that people who occupy a table will eventually make an order. Maybe she was meeting a client or business partner there and delaying making the order for when he/she arrives?

    There are lots of possibilities beyond what the eye can see. Also, the world is a-changing with new paradigms. Shall I say, 'live with it' or 'embrace it'? Life. So challenging..

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. nope she didn't order anything at all.. and it's actually not abnormal to not make an order at that place, most of the people will just sit there waiting for pick-ups, for which they won't occupy for long.. but in that case of her, she just laid all her documents on the table and started working.. well, if the changes are getting worse, i don't see why we should live with it or embrace it at all right??

  15. Nowadays, many people like to use those outlets free seating, free WIFI, free air-con and free cleaners for their own used without ordering anything.

    No comment on such people, but I never do this myself. If I want to kill my time, I will go window shopping. If I want to take a sit, I will find a bench. If I want free WIFI, I will go McD or Starbuck to order something.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. true, I have no comments on such people too. For one thing, I don't take the advantage of this kind of place.

      Delete
    2. i will never do that also.. if i need anything from there, at least i will order a cup of drinks.. i feel uneasy to just occupy the space and use the facilities in the venue without any order made..

      Delete
    3. I finally witnessed some people used those outlets for free as their chit-chatting and gathering place, and when they left, the make in the table in mess. They threw tissue papers and rubbish on the table too. So bad.

  17. That is indeed very annoying. If she's not a customer, I guess she has no right to demand for anything from the restaurant...

    ReplyDelete

    1. yes!! you have the same thought as me.. she really doesn't have that right to complain and demand for service is she isn't making any order..

  18. As for me, I dare not one.. very timid... unless I order something .. just a drink also never mind, hor.. then I will have the right to ask them to wipe nice nice for me.. hahaha..

    1. hahaha, me also like that lah.. not to say timid, but i really feel uneasy if i just sit there occupying the place without making any order, feel like everyone is watching me with weird thoughts~~ :D

    1. Is the lady going to order later and continue with her work? Or she just sat there for some time and left?

  20. I hardly have extra time to 'kill' at the cafe. My schedule is packed with activities, especially with 2 growing kids.

    Maybe I'll utilize those opened air cafe when the kids leave the nest and I'm all alone with my old hubby.

  21. Anyway, I've seen quite a number of times people go buy nasi lemak and eat it at McD in Bangsar.

    I guess no harm if the place is not crowded, but at least after eating, clear the mess lah.

    Eat nasi lemak and then leave the wrapper there for McD staff to clear pulak. tsk tsk

    1. yalah, no harm if the place is not crowded.. but still, if i were to do that, i will at least order a drink no matter the place is crowded or not.. i just feel uneasy and weird to sit there having nothing to drink and munch.. it's just like taking advantage lah.. if tapao nasi lemak, then at least also order a cup of coffee, and then don't leave the mess behind lah.. don't be a rude person~~

      aiyoh, why Bangsar?? i thought Bangsar are all high class people?? but still doing low class thing.. tsk tsk tsk~~

    She is already getting a free resting place she doesn't need to demand at all.

    1. indeed, she was sitting there for free and since she isn't making any order, she is not a customer and what rights she has to demand the ashtray to be removed?? furthermore, that's a smoking area~~

    i was still working on a fast food chain here there's these three

    1. well i think as an employee of that fast food chain, you have no power to do anything.. because the three ladies can always retaliate back and immediately ordered something.. BTW, are the water chargeable actually?? if yes, then they are customers, haha!!
