Mutual Respect

Yesterday, I went to SMKA Naim Lil-Banat for an activity and I made new friends. I was so surprised like wow I made friends with Malay, Chinese and even Indian only for a few hours, and they are older than me. They are studying at USM Kelantan, taking diploma course in.. I can't recall what it is but undoubtedly it's science course *facepalm*. And there's a Chinese girl named Mei, like oh my god, she paid full attention to my nonsense babbling. She looked me in the eyes and nodded when I was talking and I was like hey babe we have mutual respect ahaks. Hahaha! I don't know why I like Mei but she's kinda friendly but shy in the meantime and I can get along with her very well. She asked me a lot of questions, and I tell her everything that I know but I think she knew what I was going to talk about but she didn't interrupt me and I call it respect, I repeat respect. I really appreciate the existence of this kind of people like it's so hard to find these days. This might be because I have met 'dia yang paling tahu' people and they annoyed me. Everytime. Have you ever encountered this situation? For instance:

Ali/ Abu conversation

"Eh kau tahu tak, Cikgu Zam ajar aku math ni macam ni macam ni la. Tapi kan lepas tu Ahmad ajar aku cara yang lagi senang dowh, bagus ar dia kan. Cara dia ajar pun mudah faham."

"Aku dah tahulah cara yang Ahmad ajar tu.."

Like what?! "Aku dah tahulah..." punya ayat is not a respect at all. For me, it is impolite. You can't say to your friends like "Aku dah tahulah..." kind of ayat because it hurts. It might hurts people who talk to you with their full enthusiasm. At least, you have to let them finish their words first and then say "Ha'a dia ajar senang kan". Just agreed! Unless your friends tu jenis yang cakap benda yang sama beratus-ratus kali, I'll just say "Sebenarnya kau dah cakap semalam"

Maybe it's just me that over-think a simple matter but for me, I think I'm trying my best to do not hurt people's feelings with words. Let's change for goods! Last but not least, before I end this entry I would like to share one of my favourites Grumpy Cat's tweet.

"It's so rude to talk when I'm interrupt!"
