Respect, No Matter Who They Are

Assalamualaikum!
Well, Hi guys.
Sorry for not posting as frequently as I did before, (if there are any regular readers, which I doubt there are any but who knows).
But it's not like I post that frequent before this. Hihiks.

I admit that I have been lazy...
All the free times I had, I spent it in sleeping.

Nothing much is going on in my life. Actually, there's a whole lot of bunch, but that will be in another post.
In this post, I wanna talk about Respect.

17 May 2016

There was a play held in Panggung Percubaan for FESTIK 2016. And that night, it's my college's play, K17.
MTM (Majlis Tertinggi Mahasiswa or College Student Council) posted in college's Facebook group, stating that there will be buses to Panggung Percubaan at 7.30, 8.00 and 8.30 p.m.

In the usual bus schedule, there is no 8.30 bus.
The usual schedule is 8.00 p.m., 9.00 p.m, 10.00 p.m., and so on.
But since the MTM posted that, I guess there is a bus at 8.30.
And yes there is. But there's no driver although the bus is already full with students.

All the seats were already taken, so I just stand near the back door. At the back rows, there were a group of boys. The noisy kind.
But, oh well, I don't really mind.

And so we waited for the driver.
We wait and wait and wait some more.

The boys at the back starting to get all cranky.

"Aduh Pakcik ni. Pukul berapa nak gerak ni."

And then suddenly, the bus driver said that the bus will move at 9.00 p.m.
Which is like the usual schedule.
I was like, okay. Maybe there's a miscommunication between the bus driver and MTM.
It's okay though.

But the boys at the back started saying things that are.... rude.

"Pakcik ni, memang mencabar kesabaran aku betul lah."

"Pakcik ni dulu bukan habis pun PMR."

"Hashtag Driver Babi."

I was like Wow. Just Wow.
Such words thrown to a bus driver who might just probably be innocent and did nothing wrong.
Even if he is at fault, there's no need for such foul sentence.
This is just disappointing.

I look at the reflection of the mirror, to see their faces, indirectly, of course.
Ah, First years.
This is very upsetting.

The bus driver might just be not informed about the 8.30 bus, 'cause originally there is no 8.30 bus.
If they are not informed, it's just natural for them to stick to the original schedule.
And I do understand that the boys were getting impatient, so am I, and maybe all the passengers in that bus,
But still, there's no need for such words.

There are bus drivers who have a diploma, even a degree.
Just because their job isn't as glamorous as medical doctor, you don't have to mock them like that.
Seriously.

This is disappointing.

I hope you guys learned something from this post.


Be someone who respects others, no matter who they are, no matter what kind of jobs they have.
For that, you will be respected.
