Honesty is a trait that I really admire.
In fact I have been told by many it is something that is quite synonymous with me, by that I am the sort of person who finds little qualm in expressing his honest opinions.
But as I have learned along the way,
though Honesty is an admirable trait it may not be the best policy in certain situations.
Sometimes we have to tell white lies to give people some sort of encouragement and morale boosting,
I get that, I really do.
It's just that sometimes I get caught in those tricky situation, it's as if I was answering a tricky multiple choice question and pick the wrong answer and the end I feel really guilty about it.
I have learned my lesson, mostly the hard way, so today I am going to share it with you folks so that you may not repeat the same mistakes as I did.
#Lesson 1 -
When a girl is telling you something, usually a rant or an explanation of a certain situation, please don't get the illusion that she wan't to hear what you think about it.Though she may term it as "someone to talk to" or "Seeking advice" but she doesn't really want any form of advice or you talking back. Rather what she really want is for you to nod, sympathise and repeat what she says in a lower sombre voice.
#Lesson 2 -
If you're Malay and someone invited you to an event that you don't really want to attend, just say "Insyaallah".
#Lesson 3 -
When a girl ask a question like "If I were an animal what do you think I would be?" It's wise to pick something something that is either cute, majestic and proportional in size.
Good Answer - Cat, Rabbit, Tiger, Eagle, Dolphin, Lion, Horse etc..
Bad Answer - Elephant, Giraffe, Salamander, Gecko, Python etc..
When someone asks, what are you attracted to and by which they mean "the opposite sex" it's wise to pick something that is based on personality and always include in the word "chemistry".
When someone asks "So what did you do this morning?" It's wise not to tell everything.
When a someone asks "So what do you think of me?" What she really want it for you to tell good things about her.
"Am I such a (insert negative trait) person"
Good answer - "Of course not! Yes, sometimes you may be perceived as such but I think deep down inside you're really a...... "
Bad Answer "Yes"
You know the comment section underneath that "status update" isn't really about commenting. Why do you think there's only a "like" button?
So far that's all I could think of tonight.
Feel free to add some of yours.
Was in the car a few months back with a fellow Pemuda UMNO man,
somewhere in his mid thirties an easygoing, funny, friendly man who has this penchant for well, err, slightly mature ladies.
You know the one that likes Janda and Datins sort.
I mean who am I to judge, whatever tickles his fancy.
Known to be quite the player (amongst these err ladies...) I had the chance to witness his game this one fine night,
we were in my car, I was driving he was texting.
"Siapa la ko sms bro?"
"Takdelah aku sms ni haa sorang ni, dia nak jumpa aku kat KL ni tapi aku macam malas la del, sibuk sikit la aku pun nanti takut rasa bersalah, ko maklumlah kalau dia nak jumpa mesti dia nak punya... Sekarang dia dah merajuk la"
"Tak paham aku dengan kau ni"
Teet teet! Teet Teet!
The he reads it out loud in a Kelantanese English slang
"Dia reply del"
"Eh hello, whose number is this? I don't know you"
"Aii Takkan you dah sampai delete number I?"
"Sorry, I dah takmau tahu siapa you! I nak lupakan you, tak sanggup lagi ditipu. You dengan I dah takda apa apa hubungan."
"But I still love you dear"
"Ko biar betul bro nak hantar tu?"
"Haha ko memang sial, dia tengah-tengah nak tidur confirm dah tak boleh tidur lepas ni."
"No I takmau maafkan you, I dah tak sanggup lagi dipermainkan."
"apa la ko buat kat dia bro?"
"Takde apa pun bro!"
"Takpe apa apa?"
"Langsung tidak mengapa apakan dia, tu yang dia marah tu"
To which our friend replied
"Dear maafkanlah I"
"Ah you tak boleh dipercaya, ni yang I benci dengan orang Politik ni, cakap berdegar-degar tapi masuk angin keluar asap, semuanya janji langit bumi tapi takde apa-apa, berpolitik memang pandai."
"Haa ko tengok ko bro! Kita dah hilang satu undi dah, confirm dia dah tak undi kita lagi dah lepas ni semua ko punya pasal"
"Itu yang aku tengah berusaha untuk mendapatkan balik undi dia ni Del."
These days folks,
every votes count, even from your disgruntled scandalous mature girlfriend.
