I have this bad tendency of laughing at people’s poor English. Well, my English is not exactly great but sometimes it’s so bad that you can’t help yourself.
Malaysian has this mentality to look up at people who could speak good English. As for those who cant, they will be looked down upon. Obviously, it’s not a very good attitude. Just because someone has good oratory skill doesn’t mean he’s smart.
Well, the point is want to make here is that, even though someone couldn’t speak proper English they shouldn’t be looked down as they might have something better than us ie fluent in other languages. So anyway, the purpose of writing this crap is to serve as disclaimer for my post below. I don’t want anyone to brand me an arrogant bastard who think his English is better than anybody else.
So here’s the story.
Couple of years ago, my friends and I had coffee in Coffee Bean (Starbucks equivalent). So this friend of mine brought her cousin, who didn’t speak a word throughout the entire session. Then couple of days later, she messaged this friend of mine in IRC.
Girl: ARE YOU REMEMBER ME?? ARE YOU REMEMBER ME? LAST TIME WE DRINK KOPI IN KOPI BEAN..
My friend laughed so hard till he smashed his keyboard with his hands.
