My GST Blues
Everyone has been whining and screaming at the implementation of GST. I thought that I could keep my cool until I saw several ridiculous charges. Many unscrupulous business establishments are jumping wagon to take advantage to milk and slaughter the customers.
There is a nightly steamboat truck near my home. I frequent there for quickie light supper of snacks with my wife for the last 3 years. The fatso seller charged RM1.00 for simple skewers of food. He told us he would have to comply with the GST ruling and will charge RM1.20 a stick! That's 20% increase and he never paid income tax as bragged.
This morning, I sent my car to patch a puncture on the back wheel of my car. They always charged me RM5.00 for each patch work. Today he smiled sheepishly and charged me RM6.00 per asshole! Gah!!!
On a happier note, I heard that the gaming 4-D outlets absorbed the 6%. Zalora gave 6% discounts while many others absorbed them too. In other words, they rather earn less 6% without hurting the plight of customers otherwise they would suffer if we boycott them!!
Where else should I boycott? Just tell me!
