Are Malaysians Really Rude?

Horrors!! I read the front page of The Star newspaper and had a big shock that Reader's Digest rated our country at the lowest level AGAIN! 6 years ago we ranked 33 out of 35 major cities in the world for being 'Ugly Behaved'. NOW we are worst off and dropped to 34 out of 36. Something is seriously wrong and I cannot deny this that I do see ill mannered and weird people everywhere. Some are locals and many are FOREIGN IMMIGRANTS too! Could the Reader's Digest simply conduct the survey by pin pointing the nasty people and assume that they are all Malaysians? I doubt about its accuracy somewhere.




I do know that Mat Rempits are new horrible road menace that endanger other lives on the road!! There are plenty in our capital city and the police have been arresting them to no end. They breed and grow by the numbers so fast.


I get stucked in traffic jams everyday and I do see reckless drivers who cut in & out of the lanes. My colleagues do that all the time and laughed at me. They joked with my wife that I love traffic jams and could obediently follow the traffic jam for an hour while playing word puzzles on my mobile phone. They would drive past me and honked at me like morons. They also smoke everywhere inside the factory except for my department. Even my bosses smoke inside meeting rooms! Their crystal ashtray is huge with hundreds of stubbed cigarettes on it. The also bosses love to swear and use vulgar words - NiaaMaaaaHaiiii all the time! This is real.

Later in the evening, I went to IKEA to check out some prices. I had a wonderful surprise to see an idiot Ah Beng sleeping on the display sofa with his filthy legs up. His wife was yakking on her mobile on another sofa beside! This is so Malaysian!


 

 20 minutes later, I came back and Mr.Idiot was still sleeping ZZZzzzzz!


The future generations is our last hope to get better ratings.

      Luckily they told me that Malaysians are warm, friendly and helpful. Maybe we are rudely warm, rudely friendly and rudely helpful. No?

  2. Tell you something, when we traveled to Korea. On the second day only, my handsome tour guide gave us a briefing in very serious manner. The briefing was to tell those parents having babies in our coach one to throw the baby used diapers in the trash bin in front of the coach. He said they left the used diaper on the seat and the coach smelt terribly bad on the next day. I couldn't believe the parents would leave used diapers on the seat.

    1. that is really so bad!! how could they have left the used diapers on the coach??!!

    2. Looks like the diapers were left by foreigners since it was a tour bus! I always believe that Koreans are very neat, polite and clean judging from my Korean housemates and their friends.

    2. car parks are good example.. those drivers can just stop anywhere for a parking space.. hello!! if you want to wait then please wait aside, don't block the road okay??!!

      Delete
    3. and even worse is that, the driver dropped the passengers to hunt for parking space, and there will be people standing at empty parking bays waiting for the car to come, as if this space is reserved for them!!

      Delete
    4. and they refused to go even other cars wanted to take the space.. hello, this is a public car park, the bays are on first come first serve basis.. what are these morons doing there hoarding the bay?? this is so ridiculous!! uncivilized!!

    2. But I once told a lady off because her friend had her stuff scanned already at the cashier's counter. And it was my turn. This lady came and wanted to jump queue because she said the things are her friend's also. But come on lah... she got a whole trolley full of stuff.... I had a few. Takkan I cannot go first?

      Then she muttered "Malaysians". Yes, I am a Malaysian. But you are as rude as I am! What, think one person can go queue and the other can still go shopping then can just waltz right to the front of the queue? I think NOT!

      Delete
    3. Many people love to jump queue at the Marts! The useless guards don't even bother, they only wanna catch people who enter wrongly by walking tru the cashier lanes! Idiots!

  11. All started with the dying out of the extended family - no grandparents or elders around to teach and guide the kids...parents too busy making money or not bothered to do so, and they spoil the kids rotten. Don't think it is going to get any better. Just pray it does not get worse.

    You find people a lot nicer in the little towns and villages where everybody still stays together...

  28. Hi There, I'm sure there are nice people everywhere and rude people everywhere. In our country, we southerners are 'known' to be friendlier and nicer than the northerners... BUT--I know some northerners who are VERY nice.... SO---who knows?

    I will say though that I've heard this all of my adult life and found it to be true last summer when we were touring the Grand Canyon... The Japanese people flock to our country on big tour buses. And they can be EXTREMELY rude when they push their way around crowded areas. In all of my life, I've never been around such rude people as there were at the Grand Canyon.... That's one reason we will never tour popular places again in the summer....

    Have a great day.
