On Manners

Last Saturday I attended a friends wedding at Taman Tasik Titiwangsa, KL with my husband. Being the forgetful person that I am, I left the invitation card with directions at home. But we managed to reach the place eventually.

On our way, we stopped by a KTM station to ask for directions. I stayed in the car while Mr. hubs went out and approached these 3 men (probably in their late 40's or early 50's) who were sitting beside the road. I don't know wether they were taxi drivers or the vendors selling fruits because we stopped at the taxi stand.

Anyways, my husband asked politely for directions from these men while I observed from in the car. My husband seemed calm and it looked like they were being helpful. Fiq(my husband) showed no sign of dismay or anger until he got back into the car and told me what happened.

The conversation went something like this :

Fiq : Assalamualaikum pakcik, tumpang tanya, macam mane nak ke arah Taman Tasik Titiwangsa ye?
Pakcik : (takes a glimpse of me in the car) Ha elok la tu, bawak perempuan pegi sana nak beromen?!

(WHAT THE **************!!!) <---is my reaction when husband told me about it in the car)
.

The conversation continued and my husband calmly told them that we were husband and wife and embarraslingly enough, they gave us directions.

I was so shocked at the lack of manners from these so called Malay Muslims. Not to mention, being that age should make them a bit more mature then to say things like that. Its just really sad. Yes, we probably look really young and people wouldn't have guessed we're married, but that does not give anyone the right to say exremely rude things like that. I hope that this pakcik learned his lesson and to have more manners next time.


*sigh*
