fLat tiRe eh?

Salam and a very good day to readers.

February has already started but I just know it will be another busy month for me. Attending courses...meetings..and course again...and again. But hey, it never stop me from updating my blog ya.....even though it does take some time for me to update it...hehe.

So today, let me share something with you readers. Something about taking advantage over others.

It all started on this one very cold night.....me and my friend went to a near petrol station to fuel up the tank.

It was night and of course, sometimes the wind blows a bit harsh....making me shiver through my darkest bone. Haha...sounds like a ghost story.

Well, back to the story. After filling up the tank, a motorcyclist came by our car - a man, a women and a daughter around 4 years old I think.

"bang, minta tolong bang...tayar depan bocor. duit tak cukup nak tukar tiub bang."

At first, we were like stunned for a second. Of course, without giving any Salam or intro, the man just barging in and asking for some money...heh..so the story goes on...

"duit ada tiga ringgit jer ni bang. nak tukar tiub memang tak cukup"

"ni saya baru balik hospital bang, bawa anak sakit"

The man showing his daughter right hand. There was some fungus at the girl's hand.

So, we gave the family some money enough for them to buy the tube and something to eat.

The family thanked us and went into different direction.....

Well, that was it for the night. But you know what, it is true that Allah is the Almighty...

So the next day, me and my friend went to do some jog at the park (it's been a while since I do my exercise..hehe).

It was exhausted....I think I've exercised enough and yet, I still couldn't see the six pack anywhere...haha.

So the sun is getting lazy, hiding behind the clouds....notify everyone it was almost time to go home.

I started the engine..waiting few minutes for the engine to warming up...and press the paddle. As I drove the car near the exit junction from the park, a motorcycle came by...

I looked at the motorcyclist and was a bit shock!!

It was the family that I saw yesterday!!

The man, the woman and their daughter!!

And you know what?

The man used the same method!! His tire flat. Has a sick daughter...

He even said about him having only RM3!!

The same sentence!! The same method and the same person!!

But you know what hurts most?

The weather at that time has already started to rain and he didn't even tried to find a shelter!! I'm not pitying on the man but instead his daughter. That poor child doesn't know anything. And yet, what did she do to deserve this? Didn't his father has a brain? I can still see the fungus on the girl's hand. Huh!! Some father you are..

I then told the father that we have seen them yesterday and expecting him to be a little surprised knowing the facts but instead, he just acted like nothing happened and said...

"itu semalam bang...hari ni tayar pancit lagi.."

yeah right....same tactic...same method...think I would believe it?

Angry and disappointed...I drove away without giving any help.

Couldn't stand watching how he would use that little girl just to gain some sympathy from people.

Oh but you know what, on the way home, I've calculated the profits he would earn if he gets RM10 from each person he met for one day. Let say he manage to get 10 people. It would be RM100 per day. Times by 25days per month (excluding holidays and emergency leave)..it would be RM2500!!

Who would have thought......

*Sigh....this is life ya..

p/s: The date of this entry shows 1 feb....hehe. I've composed it back then but only now have the time to finish and publish it. Huhu...

Global economic crunch has not only affected the world but our local front as well, our own backyard. People will resort to anything to survive.
