Boys and girls, ladies and gentlemen, hengtai cheemui sekalian,
Do you know that there are three traits that makes a person (usually men) greater than others?
1) A hooked nose.
Think Dr. M. Think Samy Vellu. (Don’t laugh ok? He is still in power wut.)
2) A short man.
Err…can’t think of anyone. But my hubby is. Samy Vellu also short hor? (I said don’t laugh.)
3) A curly hair man.
Aiyah, Samy Vellu again? (ok, laugh)
These three traits will make the man extra seh-mor (obnoxious). If a man have all three traits, i.e. a man who is short with curly hair and hooked nose, then, all hell will break loose.
Trust me. I got one ex-colleague who was in charge of Human Resources who is like that. He was most feared because of his snakey characteristics. The management hates him and the employees detest him. Yet, no one can remove him.
Once, he threatened me with ‘Every morning, before I come to work, I pray to Lord Murugan in Prai, Guan Yin in Butterworth and again, Guan Yin in Pitt Street. I carried the kavadi for 15 years. Whoever tried to defy me, they usually ended up in big trouble. Do you remember (name withheld)? He got into an accident because he disagreed with me over the (Workers) Union matters.’
Fuwah, like that man also got! I reported his threat to the M.D. (after I submitted my resignation letter) He got screwed. But now? Seven years later, he is still working in the same position. Conclusion : Stay away from people like that if you can help it.
I also have a relative who has curly hair and hooked nose. My friend who worked under this relative of mine told me ‘Wah, that one your relative ah? Die ler all of us engineers. He is very, very fussy one. Slave driver.’
But hor, if you are stuck with one (err…my hubby is short and almost hooked nose), do enjoy the company. They are great bargainers/negotiators, calculative, smart, sharp and damn quick witted.
Go look in the mirror and tell me how many traits you possessed? I have one – curly hair!
