Our car has been bombed with lots of shit lately. Real caustic stuff that stuck to the windscreen and leaves rough spots on the paintworks too.
So caustic that we can’t wash it off from our windscreen with normal water. Atm sprayed some WD40 to dissolve it. Only thing is he did not tell the wifey and she wipe the windscreen the next round she drove which left a blurred windscreen.
Later in the night, she grumbled about the blurred windscreen and why the shit caused the whole windscreen to be like that. Then, only atm remembered.
“Oh ya, shit I forget! I sprayed WD40 on the spot of shit in the morning before I went to work. BTW, Mr. Teoh told me those are bat shits. These bats come during the night and that’s why our car get those purple shits.”
Dumb blonde, “Really ah, bats? I thought bats live in caves?”
Wise man, “They are even making nests at Block 11 apartments.”
DB, “You better get rid of them.”
WM, “Yeah, Ah Teoh told me they are going to chop of the tree this Saturday”
DB, “Better la, now with all the bird’s flu and stuff.”
WM, “Oi, bats are mamalia. Mamalia adalah binatang yang menyusukan anak dan beranak, bukan bertelur. Bird’s flu are burung mya flu. Tak sama lah.” Gave ‘bodohnya…’ kind smirk.
(Bats are mammals. Mammals are animals which breasfed their youngs and give birth to babies, not eggs. Bird’s flu belongs to bird. They are not related.”)
DB – Red face. Brain works hard to cover dumb factor.
DB, “Wait a minute! That SARS was spread by fruit bats mah. So, it is the same lah.”
Ish, I just realised that atm who is four years older than me studied his science subjects in English whilst I did mine in Bahasa Malaysia. Physics, Biology and Chemistry all in Bahasa Malaysia. Now, my eldest son, born in 1990 is back to study the science subjects in English. I wonder if that has anything to do with my lack of errmmm….intelligence? After all, I have to translated English to Bahasa Malaysia in my brain all the time when I watch Discovery and National Geographic.
