I haven't felt as guilty as i did today since really long ago.
Got on a cab today cox i was in a rush and mainly cox i was carrying bulky and heavy stuff lah. I was heading for Josh's studio which is located in a industrial building and can drive through all the way to the 7th floor kind.
I hop on and told the taxi uncle the exact address of the building and then i told him that i wanna enter from the entrance, which is at another road name. He said okay.
But when we were reaching, he was heading for another side of the building. It's very complicated lah, the building is of this HUGE round design. SO if he drop me off at the wrong place, i can take the lift up the 7th floor yes, but i have to walk quite far to the lift, number one. Number two is when i get to the 7th floor, i still have to walk quite far to the unit.
Also not say it's unachievable but i hop onto a cab precisely cox i am carrying bulky heavy stuff and i wanna be dropped off right outside the unit lah!!! Since cars can drive-through anyway, right.
But yeah, as i was saying. He wanted to drop me off by the road side (this part of the building, the cars can't even drive to the lift) and ask me to walk into the building and take lift.
So i was like "Sorry uncle, this is not the entrance i told you. I told you to enter by XXXXX (roadname) right? Cox this side you heading for we can't drive in and up to the 7th floor"
He was like "7th floor?! You didn't say 7th floor what. Taxi cannot drive up one. You take lift from here lah" he sounded quite angry already lah and keep saying taxi cannot drive up the building. I had taxi drivers sending me up soooo many times already =/ So i am of course angry he thinks i am a fool like this?
So i explained to him i am carrying stuff and i will not alight at the wrong entrance. While he keep insisting that taxi cannot drive in and that i didn't tell him from the start that i want him to drive up to 7th floor.
And then we ping-pong the same argument over and over again. And he got so angry he kept shouting. I gave up and i say "OKAY FINE. You can drop me here but i will definitely write a letter to your company" I say that with so much evil thoughts like i wanna ruin his livelihood and get him into serious trouble and hopefully make him lose his job =X I am not proud of myself for this.
And then he kept going on and on and finally say "OKAY YOU WANT TO GO UP I DRIVE YOU! BUT......." Then he repeated like 4 times (in a much calmer tone) about how i should have been honest with him from the start, and he would have drove me up without the heated argument.
When he was explaining i already felt a bit guilty lah but STILL!! I am a bit wrong but he drop me at a different point from where i told him to, also wrong lah i feel. So we're quits.
And then when i reached my destination, he said sorry for being so worked up just now and i was passing him the money and so i FINALLY looked at him.
He was so old.
Grey wispy hair and super wrinkled face.
Thick lens spectacles. A little bit like Carl in UP the movie =(((
Omg just typing and remembering his face gives me goosebumps again. I feel soooo freaking bad about myself. Today whenever i think about his face, i feel like a monster.
When i am grabbing my stuff to get out he say "这样可以吗?" (like this can or not) I think he meant that since he already drove me up, and apologised, he hope i won't write a letter to his company =((
I said no problem and i say thank you and i got out of the cab feeling like the most horrible person on earth. I mean seriously, what was i thinking when i wanna do harm to someone's career, like i can.
Like who the fuck do i think i am, really.
I am sorry. I will try my hardest not to lose my temper on people so easily and never ever throw a threat to "write letters" to people over small issues. I am sorry, uncle.
And also, yesterday i ordered Mcdees for 4 person and i asked for 10 packs of chili, 10 ketchup.
Two BBQ sauce and TWO curry sauce.
Just cox we each have a meal and then we also have 20pc nuggets to share.
When we started eating, we realise the 10 ketchup were missing. So i was telling Josh "How the hell they can give me 8 chilli when i ask for 10, and then not give me the 10 ketchup?! How can they miss it out?! My god i cannot understand stupid people"
I mean it's not even like the operator tell me it's not possible to give me the amount i want. She said it was okay and she even confirmed it at the end of the order. So it must have been a very blur packer who packed my food, right?
So after much annoyance i was like "Ah nevermind lah"
And then when we wanna eat the nuggets, i realise there's no curry sauce.
I WAS LIKE "OMG OMG OMG. I CANNOT. I CANNOT TAKE THIS SHIT"
So i picked up the phone, call Mcdee again and i was all in a bitch-fit.
Just imagine. Really. I was going on and on and on about how they gave me only 8 chili instead of 10, and never gave me my 10 ketchup and 2 curry sauce and that i cannot believe it.
Seriously, the yesterday me, need to get so worked up or not!!!
So anyway. They send another rider to pass me my sauce.
I was already done with the meal. What does it say?
It says i can actually do without the sauce.
But i chose to be difficult to people.
And this is horrible. I will try my hardest not to do it again. Unless that person is on my hitlist. Lol.
