Gee, I hate out-laws.
It often goes like this. Out-law (OL) got something to ask. But refused to ask me if I am the one who picked up the phone. They don’t phone the hand-phone because it is more expensive by 10 sen. So, they use the house phone. Must insist to talk their baby brother (atmlah). Damn, if the questions are like how the USD and RM affects the char koay teow price or some income tax questions, then fair enough la. But there are questions which my atm has to refer to me. Like what to do to a colicky baby or why the baby cannot pangsai or shitty things like that. Menial stuffs that you wouldn’t want to interupt a Pengurus Besar.
Damn, write only one para, already puh huew (naik api). I am possibly the friendliest sister-in-law they can find on planet earth. Don’t believe can ask all my breastfeeding group moms. I am never too busy to listen to their phone calls.
But these two (out of four) super annoying OLs always, always got bad timing.
Just like yesterday noon. I had just dozed off for about five minutes, in the air-cond room with my toddler.
5xmom : KNN, people sleeping, phone what CB.* Grudgingly dragged self to pick up the phone.*
OL : Where is atm?
5xmom : Went out already. Anything?
OL : Went out where? Play ball (badminton)?
5xmom : No, just went out. (PKM, if you want to know so much, next time go phone his handphone la.)
OL : No play ball? Where he go?
5xmom : *Lagi naik api* Just out.
OL : Never mind. *click*
PKM, I no so free to tell you that your brother went out to drop the kids at church, then he went to cut his hair, then he went to hardware shop, then, he went and guard (or gut?) his badminton racket at his friend’s sport shop and then, he went back to church and then, only he come home.
Fcuk for waking me up from my nap. And not wanting to pass a message to me. Tiuss….. and OL never bother to call back my atm and that atm also don’t bother to return call.
It is already 24 hours and I am still mad. Because if there is nothing important, don’t ever phone my house tengah-tengahari to disturb my nap.
Remember girls – next time, find a Mr. Right who is an orphan and the only child. Never marry anyone with sisters. Especially one with four sisters. Otherwise silap-silap, you end up with 4 mother-in-laws.
*I know….. today is Sunday, I am supposed to write something inspirational like how God touches me. But I have been spending 9+am to 1pm in church so that’s enough inspiration for today.*
