He did it again

He did it again. After officiating the signing of the new collective agreement between NUBE and the bank owners the man said and I quote

He also advised employees to save in difficult times as well as in good times. “Make sure you do not waste,” he added.

Make sure you do not waste? Save in difficult times as well as good? I say man Pak lah, right now I would like to fax you my pay-slip and copies of my bank books, Tabung Haji account and ASB account. Then maybe I'll also furnish you with infos on the price of essential items in my place. For your information,in this country, they differ from place to place. I'll give you the TESCO price, because they are considered to be cheap.

I'll also let you know the distance from my house to my school and also to TESCO besides all the nearest shops, so that you could calculate how much I need to spend on fuel for my motorcycle because I don't drive anymore eversince you dropped that bomb on us sometime back.

With all these infos, could you kindly please give me a reccomendation as to how to spend my money and what food to eat and still save RM10 a month. Please, I would appreciate it very much. If you could give me a logical reccomendation, I promise, I would vote for you the next time around.

By logical I mean, please don't ask me to eat once in two days and eat only 2 spoonful of rice husks each time. By logical please don't tell me to take a bus because it is cheaper and more reliable to travel by motorbike than by bus. By logical please don't tell me to ask my neighbour to do the shopping for me thus saving on fuel because my neighbour could always turn around and ask me to do the shopping for him. I don't like the idea of my neighbour knowing what I eat for the day as much as I know he does not like me to know what he eats because I am sure he is also scrounging for a living. Scroungers are proud people you know?

The fact that you could only afford to give that cliched advise despite the many advisors that you have, some from top unversities like Oxford, shows that you yourself are bankrupt of ideas. I hate to think that it was stupidity that prompted you to give that suggestion because what do I say to my foreign friends? Do I say I have a fool for a PM?

Thinds are bad enough as it is so please don't rub it in. Save? Let me see you people up there doing it.

He surely like to make some jokes...

Salam Cikgu,

He also announced that Civil Servants can now go into small businesses to alleviate their financial problems.

Now, on one hand he ask the rakyat to save - don't eat outside, only at home, for e.g. - on the other, the announcement above. Say, if everyone eats at home, who then would buy from the business Civil Servants? And if none or very few does, can the business CS recover their small investment, not to mention making a profit? And if they can't, I'm sure it would lead to more Ahlong cases. Hmm...very contradictory. But, that's a typical Sarkas act.

Dear cikgu
Be patient.. These will all be temporary.. temporary.. yeah temporary.. but in our dreams only!!! He wants us to be dreamers too...

Dont disturb him for tonite pls!! He needs his Monday Blues for tomorrow..

The moment someone takes high office, he becomes an armchair manager. It should not be this way but the fact remains that there are few exceptions. He no longer understands our pains.

What is the use of advising us to save when there is no money to save? I wonder if Pak Lah and KJ could ever understand what desperation means.

Civil servants allowed to do business now? Allowed to take a second job now? How long ago was it when the authorities frequently raided tuition centres only to tell them it's "Semuanya ok." now? Flip-flop, flip-flop...

One day thing will just flop and no longer flip again. And I don't think the day is that far off.

Dear Pak Lah:

I agree totally with your advice.
However,we the rakyat would like to see you and your cabinet members do it first: DONT WASTE.

For a start why not:You and you ministers and their deputies and all those political secretaries:-

1-pay for your own fuel
2-pay for your own foods
3-pay for your own holidays
4-pay for your own vehicles.
5-pay for your own clothes.

At the moment we the rakyat are paying everything for you.And most of you are wasting our money.

Otherwise please keep those stupid advices to yourself.

Kerp (Ph.D) said...

Salam Chegu,
He doesnt need to save anymore because what he has saved can last him for generations to come.
Will blog advertizing as solicite by Jules of provide us enough income to pay off our internet bill? If so then we can make blogging as a part time paying job hehehehehe.

Well said, Tokasid!!

Kata Tak Nak said...

Yes, but wrong timing.

Kata Tak Nak said...

Come to think of it, you've got a valid point. On one hand he asks us to satrt a business which means forking out money and on the other he is asking others not to buy from us. Hey this is sabotage.

Kata Tak Nak said...

lets lullaby him to sleep for a very-very long time. He only gets up when Mahathir kisses him.

Kata Tak Nak said...

He thinks he is flip-flopping but we see him flopping only. The only thing I could save is my pay-slip.

Kata Tak Nak said...

You need to ask them to also pay for the air that they breathe.

Kata Tak Nak said...

He is not kidding. He thought he was being clever when he asked us to do it.

Kata Tak Nak said...

Anyone wants to advertise belacans, budu or cincalok? I have space. Its pay per click.

Kata Tak Nak said...

Doc, surely nailed it.

jaflam said...

Salam Cikgu,
It looks like everything that comes out of his mouth fumbles. There will be more today when they tabled the fuel hike remedy at the Parliament.

Tak pandai ok, tapi kalau berlagak pandai ni susahlah sangat.

Kata Tak Nak said...

Agree. To rub it in by asking us to save is just taking his stupidity a little to far.
