Talk about being unreasonable

I really love MSN. Why? because it records everything you and your chat mate say. So there can be no denial or stuff like " NO, I didn`t say that". And it gives you a chance to look back what you said, (somethings you say things the way you don`t mean to say, or sometimes you just don`t know what you say).

Being someone who always have to organize things whenever there is an outing or a yum cha or a game, I thought I have learn to be patient. Apparently, I was so wrong... I had my last straw today and I just don`t become myself anymore. All this comes from a effort to organize a badminton session, with the wrong people.

It just so hard to call people to play badminton here. Unlike my friends back at kajang, where all I need is just few phone calls, or sms, here everyone seems to have their own stuff, and wouldn`t compromise a little bit. In simple term, they just don`t care. I can swear that I have ask the question 'when are you free to play badminton' and things along those line, no less than 100 times. (to different ppl of cuz). Everytime there seems to be a possibility everyone could play together, something went wrong somewhere. And for all the stupid-est reason in the world. I feel lame la. Tired la. Mom want to go shopping la. Or simply I can`t today.

So, after so many delays, I finally decided to play badminton this week. Because it`s been really long since I met 2 of my (so call)friends to play a game together. And also because they have been asking me a couple of time when to play also. Then later, one goes like, but I got extra class on this saturday. Fine, till saturday, he say his class were canceled. But its a little late too play today already... so he suggested tomorrow. To prove this, I provide his own words.

A : play tomorrow la
Me : tomorrow? ok then.. who else`s playing

.... discuss who else will be playing

Me : I`ll see how, I call ppl first. If got enough ppl and court, I`ll inform you.

So tomorrow comes. I called the ppl, asking them to make it for the game, then after make sur got at least 4 playing, then I go book the court, and I book 4-6. So after sms everyone, I got reply from mr.A ,

"you booked already? B. and I are having lunch now. Later got stomach upset. HOw about 6pm"

That`s 1.30 pm. I mean it`s still 1 and a half hour to go.. rest properly and digest ler. Then they call me online and 'talk to me'. Its really fine that if they can`t go and all if they worry their stomach upset ,but then.. this came up.

"This is poor planning and informing on your part"

Still, fine, I`m not really upset, yet.. but when one of them started the

"I organized movie trips" ( I knew the I`ve done this b4 thing going to come up somewhere)

Reasons why badminton trips are different from movie trips.

Fundamental reasons : There only a few badminton players and you`ll need at least 4 to play. And all these ppl always have conditions. Some don`t want to play at night, some don`t want to sunday, some want to go back hometown, some got work, some got class.. and the most reasonly added, I can`t play because I need 4 hours to digest my food.... You don`t get this for movie trips i.e " I don`t want to go to this movie cuz the pop corn sux".

Fine, if you thigns to go your way, by all means... go organized the next badminton session... I had enough already... I just told you yesterday that I`m going to call ppl. And being with us so long, you know we`ll NEVER be able to play at 6pm because Malacans (adelene and sujj and even siew, but he`s not here), will have to go home for dinner. So you go eat late, then inisist must rest 4 hours before playing, that`s your problem.. but don`t say;

"this is poor planning and informing on your part"

Looking back at those messages, things doesn`t start off that tense. It was quite ok with me saying saying sorry and all because I didn`t notice they waited for me to online.and talk talk... and B even say halfway (after all the labeling and insults.)

" I`m still your friend"

Only to come back later with loads of capital letters and F words and A shouted " go drool over you misery". Though I have little friends, (or none at all), but having so call friends that will cause this kind of misery ( yea, I lost my mood the whole day), sometimes I wonder is it worth having it at all.

Or maybe, I should have talk the way I suppose to. Be really calm and pretend I`m fine and just take in all the blame. Yea yea.. that should work.. Then everyone will love me I have loads and loads of friend.. wee :) Alex.. your are such and idiot.

* you know, I buy your reasons even though some ppl told be it`s just an excuse. I`m just frustrated that all you guys choose to eat late in the afternoon and blaming me for it after telling me to organize the badminton session just a day before.*

Alex,

It's always like that. Sometimes it's better not to let it bother you, simply because it's not worth bothering about. Nowadays I'll usually try to look at things in a diff brighter way, mainly to keep my temper. It helps in a way.

hey, having this blog is good. we can blurt everything out. bet u felt much better after writing this? :D

Try posting that whole conversation here Alex. Just try it. You ARE trying to be reasonable after all.

"Talk about being unreasonable." It's a seriously suitable topic you picked but who exactly does it apply to here. My extreme hostility towards the end is only a reflection of how EXASPERATING talking to someone who's completely unreasonable can become. And you're completely of the way I speak and the common expletives. You also forget to mention that there is a second party who also thinks that you're being completely anal.

There's always two sides of a story.

Just as a side note :

Since you don't understand digestion, or don't believe me, here's some medical text on digestion :

you know, posting this so late where everthing is already been resolve, I really don`t want to start it all over again.

I don`t really don`t want to argue. Just to clariy one thing..

I SAID I BELIEVE YOU LA. Never once I doubted your reasons.

So leave it there k? adrian`s handling now, I don`t think there will be future problems.

This space is my simple escape from the harsh reality. Expect lots of random rants and whining apart from the daily reporting of things going I`m going through.

Take nothing seriously, leave comments, or just a simple hi. The world is getting smaller by the day, why not know each other now. Have fun ya all.

Regards,
Alex
