Yesterday my father came back from work and told us, the family, the stuff that he heard on the radio on his way to work during morning.
I was on my way to work and I tune to KLFM (if i’m not mistaken ) The DJ was asking the listeners, “how’s your day today?” and then there comes a call, a woman,
Women = Hi DJ. today is not a great day because I’m busy and everyday I always have a cup of Starbucks Coffee in Ampang Point. So I’m not having it today because I’m busy and I’m not feeling great today.
( My note = I didn’t recall if there’s a Starbucks in Ampang Point, but what I’m clear is there’s San Francisco Coffee. If outside the building, there’s Coffee Bean. Maybe this women mean either San Francisco or Coffee bean, but if she had her coffee everyday, I wonder where is Starbucks Ampang Point. )
And then the second caller comes in, a male taxi driver.
DJ = how’s your day today?
Taxi Driver= I’m not feeling great because the caller previously clearly having a cup of expensive coffee everyday. I really wanted to try it but I can’t simply afford it. Too expensive for me. I’ve had never a single cup of it. So I’m not feeling great …
Then my father told me how the taxi driver voice-alike. Sounds so pity, and evenmore it goes on the air. Before I slept last night, I was re-thinking about this issue. Although that taxi driver is anonymous to me, this issue kinda depressing for me.
Of course, from one side of people will say : I deserve it. It’s my hardwork, blood and sweat and tears.
and another one will say : I’m working all night long, and working hard, but I still can’t afford it.
Even though my father always told me to treat myself, he also ( i think ) never have a single expensive cup of coffee. The expensive he ever had I think maybe from Oldtown or Kluang Station. And he just cameback from village and bought a grind coffee at village that people nearby was rushing to have it, a kopi-timbang. But my father told me the point that woman having it everyday…. is may the point that making the male taxi driver become sad/not great.
My father once asked me – was that coffee really tasty/good/great? I still didn’t think I’m able to answer that question because it was HOT! but judging from the energy that I’ll got/ caffeinated / it may be good because a single cup/americano/or blended will render me lively for almost.. 6 hours without any munchies. But since I decide it was just luxury item, I’ll try to avoid it. Previously I needed it because I need the mobile office, a place of free WiFi spots. Now with Jusco AU2 Setiawangsa provide a better place at cheaper cost, I’m not drinking any luxury item above. Now I really save a lot of money because I’ll drink a coffee at home before mobilizing my office.
Till this line, I’m still clueless on how to conclude this post, so I hope you, visitors and even silent readers, to tell me what you think.
