On Being Offended

Here I am, blogging live from Tony's place. Angry and offended I was, I could be pretty sarcastic when I wanted to. Just that I guess I always have been super nice to people that I never actually bite them back verbally.

You know I've been coughing quite badly for the past one week. And I was too stubborn to take any medications, hoping and relying on what my body's immune system could do in fighting off the cough. Somehow, the cough has yet to resolve, but instead it's getting worse. I cough very badly at night. And I cough when I feel cold.

So while we were in the air-conditioned club-house the friend brought me to, I coughed and coughed and coughed. And I cursed. "Shit this stupid cough."

A while later, a lady came by.

"Yeah caffein right?"

"Pardon?"

"You're cough-ing right?"

I smiled and raised the eyebrow. Say lah popperly. Ini macam how I know what you're talking about. Asian lady and dying the hair blonde speaking like an American, there's no other reasons why you're a blonde working here.

"You know you shouldn't come? Because you will be spreading the germs to everyone?"

Fuck bitch. What did you just said? I was stunned, yet I thought she was actually just trying to be nice about my cough. But I just smiled.

I felt offended. BIG time. I regretted I didn't reply her comments with sarcasm.

"Why? You're retrovirus-infected and you're scared of being infected with the slightest cough?"

See, I don't see any relevance in her comments as to asking me not to come to the club. It's not like she owns the club. She's just a WORKER there. A blardy worker and she has got the NERVE to talk to a customer like that? Blardy hell. I can so file a complain against her and let's see who's the one who should not go to the club.

"Oh really? If anyone else is infected, that means your club has got pretty bad air ventilation system. Maybe you might want to look into that instead of blamming your customer who is sick? Emphasis, CUSTOMER."

I can tolerate if you're being sarcastic with me when I did something that offended you. But I was not poking your ass or electrocute your vah-jay-jay or even gropping you non-existent boobs. And I wasn't even doing anything TO DO with you. Blardy fool of a took! Mind your own business. And I'm not in the picture.

"Oh well, that means everyone will be coughing already, including my friend here who I've been out with since last week. I wonder if he's got super strong immunity or you guys here are weak enough to be infected by just a few coughs."

For the whole day I was feeling offended with her comment. I was not satisfied. I'm not happy at all. It's suppose to be a care-free day and hence the travel so far to the club house with the friend. And with that comment, it totally ruined the reputation of the entire name of the club house. What rubbish. What stupidity!

"Well, I would've known if my cough is infectious isn't it? After all, I am a doctor-to-be myself."

Alas, I think I won't hate her all that much. It's not like I give a damn if she's sick or anything. But I'm sure my mere coughs couldn't transmit enough saliva even. After all it's not even productive, no sputums whatsoever.

Friend said it's due to chilled-lung, literally translated from the traditional medicine. Mum told me about that before too, that I have quite weak lungs and I coughs like crazy if I'm exposed to cold. And I guess it was pretty true.

This cough. It shall continue to cough until I was able to cough out enough secretions inside the throat and turn it into a productive cough. By then, I would be able to get well after the cough is gone. After all, coryza is kicking in now. It's just time before I stop coughing.

Otherwise, other than the irritating urge to cough, I have no problem being in this condition. My voice gets sexy and sexier everyday.

I was quite shocked that the bitch said that. I would have coughed and spit green phlegm on her face. This is normal in Japan and US where ppl got offended to see coughing patients with widespread germs. In Japan they would wear masks and walked everywhere like zombies.

Haha!! That's one of the most funniest thing I've ever read! LOL!

Get well soon! : )

Twilight zone, i would've worn a mask lor. but a mask in a club-house is just so odd lor.

foongpc, thanks. i hope i got well soon too. :P

TZ said...

Chill dude... chill... don't be so angry...

Get well soon eh!

ichimaru akira said...

Elo, I'm suffering from the same cough. I had drank 19 types of cough syrup and being a biomed student,i trusted western meds till my dad gave me pearl powder and honey and the coughs disappeared in 48 hrs.

Ah, the wonders of chinese meds.

Sam said...

I would have said: "Call your FARKING manager now. How dare you talk to me like that - me, your CUSTOMER."

But you were coughing the whole time at the movie as well, poor thing. :( Get well soon ya!

*Anton* said...

Sam wuz trying to tell you that you disturbed his concentration in the cinema :P

Get well soon. ^_^

When you mentioned "Asian lady and dying the hair blonde speaking like an American", I'm suddenly reminded of Chris Tucker's line in Rush Hour, where he and Jackie interrogated a Chinese man who speaks French:
"You're Asian. Stop humiliating yourself."

To hell with her lah. If she's so paranoid about getting infected she shouldn't leave her home then.

Tanglebloom said...

Don't you just hate it when that happens. When the "help" actually forget their positions and acting self righteous with their high-and-mighty attitude towards customers.

I got told off for dozing off in the chart room at my local country club and then I flashed my membership card while giving them the once-over glance. I've never seen a more apologetic than the one shown by that bitch of an employee.

Medie007 said...

tz, chill la ni. *coughs coughs*

ichira, whoa, 19 types? o.O

sam, sorry i disturbed ur concentration lor...

anton, shhh... no need to announce like that kua...:P

Ban said...

Aiyo. Really got poor customer service skills. Should tell her of nicely (by NAME), then if she dun wan to listen, call the manager.

Medie007 said...

tanglebloom, so totally agree with that. :) but in my case it won't work. i suppose the lady is born that way. how sad.

Little Dove said...

Write a complaint letter?

Medie007 said...

perky, wah... ganasnyer...

ban, forget abt it lah. i'll just avoid her for all cost. the next time she does that, then she'll get it from me.

Medie007 said...

little dove, so troublesome lar...

~LeuMaS~ said...

alma said...

compare to bite them back;hits them back*joke*hehehe

Sam said...

Actually I think I affected his concentration more than he did me - I kept poking him with weird comments about the movie! :D

Calvin said...

OMG!!! That bitch! First, I would ask her to call the manager and demand an apology right that instant. Second, I am going to write in a complaint letter to the director of the company and also the management of the mall that rents that place to them.

JL said...

Rude girl, but don't let it affect you next time. Try to turn your mood good. Bad specimens don't deserve to ruin your day.

PS: Hi, 1st-time here. Pleased to meet you and hope to see more from you hehe! :D

jase said...

lolz!! You should have just screwed her then and there! Then you purposely start coughing into her face! Now that would be funny!! :p

[SK] said...

Medie007 said...

leumas, i know lor... but why torture myself to vomit on her face when i can spit on her right? hahaha

alma, hit her back? tat'd stoop me so low isnt it?

sam, haha, i would've enjoyed the random comments if i wasn't coughing. can't even speak a word or i'd be coughing. lol

Medie007 said...
