starbucks

absent for a few days, was running a regional workshop and so also had to do PR stuff, host dinners and all...of cos me made sure i sent out the invites with all the info like place, date, time, dresscode and even add the url of the restaurant, (but do people really read them...NOOOOO)

so on the nite of the dinner...it was a super nice jap restaurant in starhill (if you are a malaysian or a pj or klite, i thot should be no problem leh) i only worry for my overseas delegates...turns out i was wrong...got a call from one very lost malaysian from peejay...

lost: hey what kind of restaurant you choose huh?? cannot even find, what place is this starhill?? (blah blah blah...mega complaining)

me: (man he doesn't even know starhill, is he from this planet??) can you tell me where you are, i will try to walk to where you are and get you here (trying to be helpful la..host ma)

lost: i am in starbucks

me: ok where is this starbusks please

lost: starbucksss, staaaaarbuuuuucks (like i am a moron to not know???)

me: yes in which building?

lost: starbuuuuucks!!!

(he is like telling me he is on "jalan sehala" and expect me to go rescue him!!)

me: (chiisiin) ok, ok, what else do you see?

lost: metrojaya

me: oh! i think you are in berjaya times square, it's too far for me to walk there, you need to drive over here, it's next to marriot or westin, you know marriot??

lost: yes yes, i know overseas (real cina ah pek) next time dun choose such a difficult restaurant.....(blah blah blah) how much to park in starhill??

me: not sure should be around $5, park in starhill la, most convenient

lost: wah so expensive...

me: (crazy stingy bugger...my free meal already worth it la) *speechless*

Hi M2A--isn't it amazing when people treat others like they are stupid? Sounds like you tried to be helpful.
