A new teacher has reported herself a few weeks ago in my school. Me, being myself, as friendly as always greeted her and we introduced each other. She, a local girl who before had work at KL and then took KPLI.. and aged 32 years old.. slightly older than me.. well I am 29 this year.. and she is still single..
Realising she is older than I am, and its sort of my habit to address the elder with an appropriate name, I call her Kak Siti (bukan nama sebenar) but she refused to have been called kakak.. she said ," panggil nama aje takpe".. ok.. fine with me and I respect her request.. So I call her just by her name.. and today.. She came to me and said," Kak Liza... bla bla bla.. "
She does not allow me to address her like that and yet she called me "kak"? hmmmm...
There was a death in front of my school. Here in Terengganu it was sort of a culture to pay a visit to the deceased family even though they are not related or even the family friends. So most of my school staffs including the teachers took turn to pay for the final tribute.
I was asked by a senior on when to go because she would like to tag along. I replied that I am not sure. She said to inform her if I want to go. I said," insyaallah.. nanti saya bagitau".. So she went back to her class while I continued reading the newspaper when my boss asked me to go with her to the funeral.. without any hesitation I agreed because suddenly I remembered that I have to go home early because I need to go to the PPD.. I did not inform that senior that I was going to the funeral that very moment because I thought she could go with the others later. Suddenly on my way back to the school after the visit I received an sms saying that," nape pergi tak cakap akak.. sekarang akak takde kawan nak gi".. so I called and told her that there were others who would go during the afternoon and she could go along then..
I thought it was settled but during lunch ( there was a jamuan), I noticed that her face was all red and it was so obvious that she has been crying. I ignored her until one of my colleague who went along with me to the funeral told me that that senior was so terasa that I did not ask her to go together.. What was she thinking? Gi jalan2 cari makan ke? If it is I would be so happy to have her along...
conclusion : What's with this people.. grow up!!!
