sadly, my malaysians
i resigned as retail assistant in video ezy last sunday..due to the registration on 22nd, i have to resign early..tak sempat kumpul duit lagi :P hehe... that's why i'm free and writing this blog now :P anyways, the experience working there? valuable!~ my working friends are fine, sporting and supervisors were really fun :) i like working there, except the fact that i have leg pains for the whole one month..exercise lah..
anyways, i wanna tell u guys bout the customers that i encounter during my one month standing :P there were of course, foreigners and they are very nice, especially the British. whenever i ask, 'hi, may i help you?' they will enthusiastically reply, 'hi, how are you, just browsing' or 'hi there, do you have this movie ......'.they are so damned polite and they appreciate our smiles and our offer to help :D i felt motivated to work if i get customers like that. Arab customers are different, they are very loud and their voices sounds 'garang' but they are exactly not..it's just their voice :) but they're fun to offer help too..then the African Americans, tell u the truth i'm a bit scared with this golongan, but they are friendly, and i have no complains.
the only customers that i would like to complain are, sadly, my Malaysians..our Malaysians.. (not all but majority) whenever i asked 'hi may i help you?' they will just pass by and angkat hidung lebih tinggi..not even a smile..frown yg lebih..i am disappointed and at the same time kecik hati because my people, how could them? i thought they would show more respect to me, and other staff there. but, this is what we get :( oh Malaysians, how could you? and this is the proof of reader's digest research and it's true ; MALAYSIA - 3rd RUDEST COUNTRY IN THE WORLD. no denying in that. some are so rude that i dun wanna layan them. some even said back, 'we just wanna have a look around lah!'..
i wrote this article not because i prefer the Englishmen and the western ppl and hated my people but i write this becuz it's true! very true and i dun wan this to continue to happen. whoever read this article, pls remember, that when u go to any shop and if anyone greets you, pls at least smile back, just have the guts pls. because i noe what it feels like to be a promoter and being rude at. at least a smile can bring some happiness in a person's life!
i hope my malaysian will see the examples brought by the Englishmen, only the goods one of course.
although i'm a muslim, and i love my religion, but my muslim-mates do not follow the true meaning of a muslim. kita bersaudara. apa salahnya kita mengasihi saudara kita. cukuplah sekadar senyuman. saya kecewa, dan malu dgn sikap saudara sesama muslim :(((
well, whenever malaysian customers come in replying my greets and with smiles, i felt relieved. at least, there are some who have sensitivity, but truthfully, very few of 'em..i'm not just talking bout malays. but indians, chinese..sama ja sume :( what malaysian are they?? :( not my malaysian..
therefore, as a teacher to be, i'll remind myself to teach my children and students that promoters have pride too, and no matter who that human being is, respect is always the key to happiness..
amik iktibar lah dari pengalaman ni
i did. and i pray to Allah that i will continue to learn from my experiences and everything that i learnt would be ilmu and ibadah, for the use of my future. amin
bye ppl :)
