I remember something that a wise, old snake taught me. He told me that the fastest way some people make ‘friends’ is by having a common enemy. We see this all the time. In school, workplace, social groups, community, political arena, families and yeah, in the market place too.
E.g. a bunch of Ah Sohs and Ah Peks who probably never talk to each other, suddenly share recipes because a new butcher they don’t like appear in the market.
When I was in school, I was the head prefect (girl) and sure enough, there were lots of groups that become close-knitted because of me. How nice! I create(d) friendships for others. So noble, ain’t it? I help save the world, now and forever. ROTFLMAO!!!
When I was working, things got too hot (due to office politics) and I lamented to this wise, old snake. He told me to take it easy. People who are lukewarm, not on good terms can suddenly turned chummy, buddy, hou heng tai chee mui until their hairs are all bonded together whenever they find a ‘common enemy’.
Ahh…don’t you agree with me? It is fun to watch the sheeps, blind ones going around in packs like blood-brothers just because they find a ‘common enemy’? They would share a bowl of cereals together, tend to each other wounds, pick the fleas, lick the asses, etc.
Got any ‘common enemy’ triad stories or examples to share? It will be nice to start Monday bitching about the workplace, marketplace, farms, wateva, isn’t it?
