After a meeting, I held my Alvin and Chipmunk organiser in my arms while arranging the arrays of papers on the table. I was the only woman in the meeting. Two of three men went out for the next meeting. It was me and him in the room and both of us were about to go out.
I opened the door and he stepped out first. Then he left me in the room without helping me to carry the documents whatsoever. I had to hold everything in my arms while holding the door for myself.
He didn't even say thank you.
I thought, "What the hell? He is younger than me and this is Malaysia. Bukan negara mat salleh!"
I just let it be.
That was not the first time. Several occassions passed and he never opened the door for me.
There was a box of heavy stuff in my room which needed to be brought to the store. I had to use the trolley but the box was too heavy. I looked at him and he was still doing his work. I was carrying the heavy box with my female assistant and he didn't even asked or looked at us.
Then our boss asked us,
"Boleh angkat ke tu?"
I said, "Insya-Allah."
But we were actually struggling. Boss couldn't helped us. He was about to go for a meeting. Before he left, he said, "Suruh si King Kong tuh tolong korang."
I went back inside and asked him, "Tolong boleh tak? Kotak tu berat. Boss suruh kitorang mintak tolong awak..."
He looked at us briefly and continued his work.
Eventually, one fat lady and one skinny girl had to carry the heavy box. The tall and healthy young man aged 25 sat there - pretended nothing happened.
My assistant wanted to go home at 8.30pm and nobody was around. He was about to go to his motorbike. They were supposed to take the same route.
So, I asked him nicely,
"Boleh tolong jalan dengan dia sampai ke bawah? Kesian dia balik sorang."
He looked at me and frowned.
"Buat apa?" he asked dumbly.
I felt like knocking his head.
We were staying back so I went out and bought some roti canai. It was meant to be for my assistant. But since he was there, I bought for him too.
I bought three pieces of roti canai and invited him to eat.
As expected, he took 2 pieces of roti canai before leaving the last one for my assistant.He didn't invite her, he brought his own plate and he left that one last piece unattended.
When my assistant wanted to eat, that last piece was cold and too chewy.
He saved his stomach first.
This person was no longer working with me. So, this is not an office talk, okay. But I have a question to you, folks.
Am I the only person who thinks that he is rude and ungentleman?
Or is he normal?
