I don't know why some of us never think twice telling others what they should or shouldn't do, despite not knowing each other well and quick to ask the "Why Don't You" questions when someone doesn't do things like you do.
Don't get offended if your "Why Don't You"s to me gets you a cold shoulder or a stinging answer. I don't suffer fools gladly.
Why Don't You Get A Better Car?
Why? You plan to pay for it? What's wrong with our 7-year old car anyway? What's the need for better/flashier car? To show off when we go "balik kampung"?
Can I ask you "Why don't you buy a car fitting to your financial status" instead? Especially when you whine about not being able to make ends meet and bitching about the company because the company pays you a "measly" salary?
Why Don't You Buy A Landed House? Apartments aren't comfortable
You go on live in your terraced house (barricaded, if I might add) and I go on living in my cheap apartment. Deal?
Why Don't You Have Another Child
Why don't you? Oh? You are too old? Well, don't you think I have my reasons too? Oh, you are offended? Have you ever stop to think that you might offend me too? No. Oh.
Have another one lah... at least got spare
Children are like spare parts, is it? One gone and you can easily replace with another?
Why Don't You Cook? Learn To Cook lah!
Just because I never invite you to come to my house to eat, doesn't mean I can't cook. And just because my husband doesn't want me to go all tired and "kelam-kabut" cooking and eating late dinners on weekdays and eat out instead, doesn't mean I cannot cook!
You can cook? What do you know to cook?
Why do you want to know? I am not interested to be your daughter-in-law.
Why Don't You Go To Gym. Don't be lazy. See, I lost a lost of weight recently, going to gym
Ooooooo I'm lazy ah? I guess clocking 40-50KM of mileage weekly does constitute as being lazy as I'm not doing the hip thing as going to the gym for my workout.
You continue with your elliptical machine workouts and I continue with my run. OK? Anyways, good for you to learn the word cardio recently. Do you know what it means?
Why Don't You Chill?
I love to chill but I can't stand you telling me what I should or shouldn't do especially when it doesn't affect you!
This, folks, is today's rant. An accumulation of "Why Don't You"s to me, and this rant was triggered by this:
You still jog? Why Don't You Cycle Instead Of Jog? I think it's better.
Why should I?
Should I ask you "Why Don't You Do Something About Your Beer Belly" instead?
But I won't because it's none of my business.
But thank you for caring.
