Yesterday, we just got back from Singapore, attending my bro in law's wedding. As we boarded the plane, I saw this man in early 30s (who seemed like an empty snob) got up from his seat after being told he sat at somebody else's seat. So with a blank face on, he walked past three rows of seat and approached an uncle with a somewhat irritated face and 'ah-beng-ish' style:
MAN: Uncle, u sit on wrong plane!
As I already knew there was gonna be a small scene going on, I observed all along from the start, hehe...very bad of me......hehehehe...I knew he should be saying "uncle, u sit on the wrong seat" instead of PLANE! LOL!
With a very shocked expression on his face, that uncle looked up at him without saying a word, then that man finally and QUICKLY gestured "oh, my seat is same row as yours, but it's window seat, not YOUR aisle seat" facial expression......all that without a word, not even a word of sorry!
He was very lucky that uncle has no temper, or probably didn't understand english too, I can imagine if somebody as blank as he is simply comes telling me I boarded the wrong plane, I think I would be pissed off! Coz obviously he was the one all confused there! I chuckled in my heart.....and moved on.....
That's why I always thought that we should be careful of the words we use in daily communications, coz even ONE wrong word can trigger an awfully different meaning altogether! hehe.....
