The morning that was

Sorry folks, I didn’t manage to reply your comments in the previous post. Apparently, Streamyx is having some menopausal syndrome and acting up again. I had no internet access since last night. This morning, I thought if I bring my laptop to McD Greenlane, I will be able to get free coffee (refill), free aircond, free music and free cuci mata (ok, not the cuci mata cos they only have old retirees who aren’t very attractive anymore or young college guys who are younger than my sons).
So, after I dropped my kid in kindie (with a spring in my step, a leapt of joy in my heart and a big shout of hip, hip, hurray I can non-guiltily stuff my son for his teacher’s care for three hours at RM165 per month), I went to McDonald’s. Ordered a big breakfast with free coffee refill (not that I can drink more than a cup but it is a nice thought nevertheless) and searched for a power point because I intend to sit for three hours at McD.
There was this couple (not sure if legal or not though, cos your mind tend to suspect things when you see two person, whom are probably not married to each other talking in that one-kind way, *smacks self* for gossipping) who were sitting at one corner where three power points are. So, I was wondering if I should break up their (maybe illegal) rendezvous and ‘excuse me, but I need the power point, so if you don’t mind, can I squeeze in to the corner and plug it in?
But you see, before I can take out my laptop cable, which is rather long and messy, I need to clear some of the stuffs from my laptop bag. So, I took out my video camera lah, my handphone lah…my notebook and pen lah….
Can you imagine….two of you sitting there chatting so animatedly, looking into each other eyes, giggling and lost in your own world and suddenly, this auntie came by with a big backpack and started taking out video camera, cables and stuffs like that, standing next to your table….
So, yeah, I unintentionally broke up a couple chatting (maybe illicitly *hoi, stop making assumptions, it is sinful*) and they left. But only after, I noticed there is another corner with a power point and I sat there instead.
In the end, McD’s wifi also not working but I managed to edit two videos, finished my big breakfast, read a book, send some sms and spent almost 3 hours at McD.
Moral of the story : Streamyx sucks. Auntie with video camera who broke up your early morning rendezvous with (maybe) someone’s else wife sucks too.
