This is a little rant.Â I find it annoying when people treat their smiles like it is gold or something.Â Their faces look like they have some bad stroke and both sides of their cheeks can’t move, their eyes can’t light up, their lips can’t open enough to show their teeth and their body tense.
There was this place I went to last Saturday and there were these people that I met.Â I know that they are a lot nicer, holier, helpful-ler, kinder (addÂ more niceties and superlatives here) but that doesn’t give them the superiority over me, ok?Â Just because you are doing something, you spend more of your time doing it and I am not, it doesn’t make you better than me, ok?
So, I went to two of them and told them that I need their favour for something.Â Hey, the most you can do is to give me a smile, tell me where to go, wish me something nice in return for my smiles and my earnest request for their help.Â But nooooo….they give me this sour face, look like I am imposing on them and muttered something that I couldn’t quite get it.Â Tiu lor, as if I am asking the prison wardens to see someone in prison like that.
The reasons I approached them is because I respect their positions and hence, think it is appropriate I ask them instead of barging around on my own.Â But do they appreciate it?Â Do they know that parents like me look up to them and highly praise them for their dedications?Â No…they always have this sour face.Â And reluctance to be nice.Â Chey….if I ready found you so unfriendly and unapproachable,Â how do you think I want to be part of your group?
My rant is – For God’s sake, smile more!Â Loosen up a bit.Â Laugh louder.Â Act a bitÂ sillier.Â And the world is a better place.
