Everytime I feel happy with Singapore and Singaporeans some 50 years old or something chinese singaporean Auntie just has to be herself around me and I loose all hope.
I was in the que at the NTUC supermarket waiting at the check-out and this Auntie starts up:-
"Excuse me" Said in a very nasty and particulary stuck up manner.
"Sorry, whats wrong?" I say as I had no clue what she was woriied about.
"Your intruding on my space" She says then goes into a ten minute siew (Mad) +general cussing and disapproval rant at me with the check out auntie who nods and agrees politely with her until she finally goes away.
Firstly she did not appear in anyway to have a mental disability.
Secondly the disputed space was my hand resting on the end of the conveyor belt - She had about 6 items in her little carry all which after her initial out burst spread across the whole conveyor belt. Why ten minutes you ask - Because she was so busy ragging on me that it was the check out Auntie could do to agree with her and keep her happy so she would eventualy piss-off.
If it has been a man I would have leveled him on the spot but her being female and of an age made me be respectful and put up with her crap. Which I now see made it worse as she took it as an admission of guilt and continued - Maybe she was just enjoying her vent.
This is not isolated - I have seen Chinese Auntied hook into anyone non-chinese in public bigtime, special cases include indonesians, malaysians and Indians. They especially love sneering at Indians on buses when a poor sould wanders to close to a vacant spot on their seat out wants to stand holding rail above them - Indians smell don't you know
I swear these aunties need to lighten up - Is it any wonder there husbands are out chasing PRC, Thai, Malay, Indonesian, etc skirts when you have such a sour puss at home. Talk to any "devoted' chinese husband in a bar in Singaproe as he eyes donw some young thing and they will tell you the same.
SARS and terrorism won't kill Singapore - Because the Aunties will have driven everyone worthwhile away long before then.
The most racist people in Singapore are Chinese Aunties - They hate indonesians, because they themselves are so lazy they need them to look after there homes, they hate malays and indians becasue they got to Singapore around the same time and they can't get rid of them and they hate Ang Mo's because they are to stupid to think for themselves.
Thanks be to God the Uncles and the younger generation do not suffer from such stupidity...
I apologise for my ranbt already lah but she made me Malu Malu Besar - such a loss of face in public lah.
