Really, some people!
Anyways, woke up bright and early with the full intention to do a speedwork run + stair exercises before cooking for sahur but horror upon horror… dry tap this morning! I have no intention of being all sweaty and stinky when there is no water so no run for today.
*already in grumpy mode because of that*
As I don’t want to see stacks of dirty dishes when there is a dry tap, sahur was at the Mamak today. Raimie had 2 roti canai at 4.30am! He sure has good appetite this early in the morning.
Saw two big “tongs” of water parked right in front my apartment building so I guess dry taps for this weekend too. Saw similar black “tong” at the roadside at the semi-d and terrace houses area too. No water for the whole area! Alamak!
And today’s main rant is:
Went to Cold Storage to buy something and there’s a promo of buying two items at RM6.59 compared to one item at RM4.29. Took two and head to cashier. Fat grumpy cashier (she is FAT, ok) who only smiled at Mat Sallehs was the lone cashier there.
She scanned the items, quickly cleared the screen (so the total amount only flashed briefly for me to see, but I saw the total of RM6.60) and curtly told me to pay RM8.00! Hello… I can do my math. Even if the system didn’t register the promo price, RM4.29 x 2 does not equal to RM8.00!
Good thing I puasa. Cannot flare up easily. Lose pahala. Simple matter, I just asked her to give me the receipt. Oh yes, she didn’t even print out the receipt! She didn’t even put a paid sticker on my purchased items or ask me whether I want a plastic bag.
Folks, remember - always look at the register to note the correct price and/or double check your receipts later. You know lah, nowadays the register can be quite confusing showing the prices… before promo, after promo price… deduct immediately, deduct only at the end of transaction… really have to do mental arithmetic while items are scanned…but I digress.
Back to the rant:
She sulked. Yelled at her supervisor (that woman really likes to yell at fellow workers right in front of customers) to manually open the cash register, took out my correct balance and shove it into my hand without even an apologetic smile. Say sorry for the error? Seriously? I was giving her trouble for buying stuff, right?
Oh yeah, Cold Storage Gardens Mall is sooooo busy and packed with shoppers everyday. So busy that cashiers there are all sooooo tired even at 9.30am! *sarcasm*
For the price I’m paying at Cold Storage, I better head to Village Grocer in Bangsar Village instead. At least the staffs there are not biased to be friendly ONLY to foreigners.

On a lighter note, just look at these: The medals for Sunday’s run.
