I Was So Mad Today

It was a fine day for me. However my mood changed once I reached the train station this evening. It was crowded as usual but the crowd got extremely large when the train didn’t arrive on time. Ever since my office shifted to the present location 1.5 years ago, my mode of transport to the office everyday is the KTM commuter. The train was delayed and when it finally came, all commuters rushed frantically to the door obstructing those who are getting out from the train. It was madness I tell you!! I don’t even need to walk by myself as I was being pushed into the train by those people behind and next to me who CAN’T WAIT to get into the train :( I was sandwiched (just like sardine) and could hardly breathe when I was inside there. I can smell all kinds of odour too…eeeyucks. The train was already filled to the brim and yet people are still squeezing their way in. Haizz, I really don’t understand…..take the next train lah please! I know everyone is in a hurry to go home but they just have to patiently wait for the next train to come, as the train was already chock-a-block FULL!! Some of my colleagues who take the Putra LRT never have such problem before.

Then I got mad again at home. This time was because of Sharlene.

When I was about to reach home I saw Sharlene and her nanny from far. She’s riding her tricycle outside the house. After I’d parked my car I accompanied her outside so that her nanny could go in and take her bath. I was happily playing with her but seconds later this girl of mine made me fuming mad by refusing to take in her tricycle after riding it. Usually she will keep it but I don’t know what’s wrong with her just now. She just left it next to the gate and gave me all kinds of excuses when I told her to put it back. She just refused to obey my instructions and began to squat down on the floor with both her hands on the ground as though she’s tired. I insisted that she takes in her tricycle or else she will not be allowed to get into the house. She did pull back her tricycle minutes later, but very reluctantly. Then we went into the house together and I told her to wash her hands and feet. She said NO again this time. So angry I was at that instant, I lugged her to the washroom and washed her up. As a result, she slipped in the washroom. She cried profusely and said that I’d pushed her down. She wanted my attention and over acted a bit there. I left her crying there although I was feeling really bad about it.

After I came down from my room ½ hour later she was all smiling again but she didn’t forget about the earlier incident at all. She told everyone including her daddy who came back much later that I’d pushed her down just now. I wonder since when she has become a ‘complain queen’....hehe. Anyway, I did apologized to her over the incident when both of us were in the room and at the same time told her to be responsible for her actions and the things she owns.

Hopefully, today she will not abandon her tricycle like the way she did yesterday. I will give her a warning first before she plays with it. If she repeats her irresponsible behaviour again, then she will not get to play with her tricycle for at least a few days.

I know how that 'sardine' feels like. I took KTM to MV on a w/end some time back n it was really packed till everyone was sticking to one another. Ewwww...
Sharlene can be rebellious sometimes too huh? My girl's like that too. But I don't take her nonsense, if she doesn't keep her things, she's not gonna play with them anymore.

Pity you squashed like that on the Komuter. That's why I never take the train or bus anymore. Gwen always say "NO" nowadays. Sometimes I smack her if she goes overboard. Really beh tahan.

Actually Putra LRT also has the same problem of delayed in arriving time, but not that frequent.
I totally understand your fruss when being squeeze like a sardine inside the train.

My boy likes to behave like that too. Squat down and pretend that he is REALLY tired when I ask him to do something that he doesn't want to do.

Feeling better now after writing it out? Blogging is some kind of a stress relief, isn't it?

Hey, I recently receive an email related to this issue, actually it's about the 10/90 rule, or something like that. It's rather good. Email me if you want me to forward to you.

I've been in a "sardine" situation as well in the LRT. I nearly puked cos the guy next to me put up his hand to hold the railing and my nose was pretty close to his armpit.... bleahhh!!!
