But the officers told her NO. Why?
"Because we're having Raya Holidays tomorrow"
I'm like WTF when I heard this. They are having their holidays TOMORROW, so why you can't do your passport TODAY?!!
What's the friggin' point of opening the office if you're not going to do your friggin' job?!!
So she called home and told us the whole incident.
My mom asked her to continue staying there and beg them to do her passport for her.
And so she did.
Finally, the assholes finally relented and agreed to do her passport for her. Because at 1pm the Head of Department walked out, and he is a Chinese.
My mom is all like "In Malaysia, we have to be patient and preserve if we wanna get what we want."
I am dumbfounded. You know, this is what is wrong with the Malaysian mindset.
It's like the dim-witted ministers saying, "You should be happy to have a place to stay in Malaysia, cos' you know, you're all pendatang asing (immigrants)."
Quoting one of my FB friends (is it you, Shuwen?): "It's like having someone rob you, and you're asked to be grateful for what the robber did not take away."
Well, last I studied, Malays descended from Parameswara who came from Indonesia. So technically we're all immigrants. But let's not go into the race case. I've some of the best Malay friends in the world. We're talking about something un-race-related today.
My point is, WE DO NOT HAVE TO BEG IN ORDER TO HAVE OUR PASSPORTS DONE. IT IS OUR RIGHT!
1. We pay taxes! (Well at this point, our parents do.)
2. Taxes go into the national fund.
3. Government utilizes national fund to pay government servants.
4. People working at UTC Sentul are government servants.
5. SO WE ARE PAYING THEIR WAGES! Technically and literally.
Why are begging for something that we technically and literally paid for? It is our RIGHT! Malaysia needs some serious re-education on their basic rights.
