Pet Peeve #045: The Wedding Planner

You guys know that movie? Starring Jennifer Lopez & Matthew McConaughey. It is one of my favourite chick flick to watch when I’m bored or feeling down or whatever. I love re-watching feel-good movies. Because duh, it makes me feel good and I know the ending so it’s a pretty safe bet.

So anyway, this movie. It is great. But it is not real life. Or it is what real life shouldn’t be. If you feel like you can relate to this movie then..um..maybe not read the rest? A summary (it is not spoiler because this movie is like 16 years ago):

Boy saved girl’s life (i mean c’mon!). Girl attracted to boy. Boy attracted to girl. Boy is engaged. Girl is sad. Boy & girl still flirts anyway. Boy break off engagement to be with girl. And they lived happily ever after.

That is pure cheating. Sure, they did not have sex or kiss even. But uh hello, it is still cheating. It is not that hard to understand. But somehow, in today’s society this is quite a norm. That you can fall for another person while still being together with someone else. I know that these kind of things sometimes just happen. You can’t control your feelings but if you start to feel a certain something towards someone, then you shouldn’t be with your current partner. Because that is unfair. You’re just too pussy to break up because what if the relationship with the new one did not work out? What if the new one isn’t all that you dream her/him to be?

Having a backup in relationship is disgusting. If you like someone new, then go ahead and break up and explore that. Don’t go exploring while still in a relationship. Eurgh. Be a nice human. Nice humans don’t go around cheating (emotional/physical, it doesn’t matter).

 

Another thing that pisses me off about this movie (as much as I really like it) is that she was about to get married to this other guy. And that guy is perfect. He is nice, he is kind, he is simple, and he obviously loves her without being complicated. But noooo, she have to go for the guy who is supposedly “more interesting or appealing”. I hate that. Why would you do that? And when he cheats on you with someone else, which he prolly will since his feelings changes so fast, you be “Boo-hoo, he wronged me! Boo-hoo, I did not see that coming!” YOU DID SEE IT COMING. HE WAS CHEATING ON HIS FIANCEE WITH YOU. WTF???

Sigh. Girls are so weird. We want the fairytale love stories. But we never ever pick the nice, kind guy because “ew, boring”.

Always go for nice, kind person. Because those are the kind of people you would want to be with for the rest of your life. Common sense guys.

It is not okay to do what Matthew McConaughey or Jennifer Lopez did in the movie. But if you just take this movie at a surface level then oo yeah, great movie! Love it!

Pet Peeve #044: Boundaries?

Look, I am pretty traditional. I don’t see anything wrong with that. Why should I conform to “modern” society. Modern society don’t even know what the fuck they are all about. Please.

So anyway, my peeve is that, why do some people not acknowledge that there are still certain boundaries between a girl and a boy. Yeah, yeah, you’re all modern & shit – a girl and a boy can be friends blah blah yada yada. But, it really got me weirded out. I don’t think it is right or even a good idea to ask a boy or a girl who is attached/engaged/married out. Alone. Together. When you guys are not even that close. You don’t even know her/his favourite colour! What, to catch up? On what? Can’t you just text? Don’t even think about calling, please.

You get me?

Like why would you even do that?

Are you trying to gauge how faithful they are? Or you feel “safe” that they already have a partner so you asking them out is like a “just friends thing” – “He’s attached! We’re just hanging! No biggie!”? Do you even think about how your actions would affect their partner? How would you feel if your partner got asked out? Okay fine, maybe you be okay with that since you are asking all these people out. But some people are different okay? They can interpret this whole thing so wrong.  And you should know that. Don’t just think that everyone thinks like you. Gosh, people can be so unaware.

And c’mon, don’t ask her/him out and say “Hey, is your girlfriend/boyfriend/fiance/wife/husband okay with you hanging out with just me and my vagina/dick?” What are you trying to do? Trying to prove that it is an “innocent meet-up/catch-up?” That you care about how their partner feels? Please. Ew. You make me sick with how fake you are. Don’t try to make them feel like they are not modern/cool enough, or that their partner is so traditional and backwards. Don’t even try that trick man! That is really mean!

YOU SHOULD FUCKING KNOW TO STAY AWAY FROM THEM. GO FIND YOUR OTHER FRIENDS MAN WTF. JUST FUCKING TEXT. DONT CREATE A FUCKING DRAMA. WHATS THE POINT OF BEING MODERN IF YOU DONT USE YOUR FUCKING PHONE. PHONE IS A MODERN TECHNOLOGY YOU FUCK FACE. THERE IS NO NEED FOR A FUCKING MEET UP. STAY THE FUCK AWAY.

Get your manners right, man.

There are rules. Don’t be an asshole.

Follow the fucking rules.

(Of course, I know that sometimes it really is an innocent catch-up. That it really is friends hanging out. There are a million of other possibilities/reasons. I know. I’m not dumb. Just go along with this particular scenarios. Don’t ask so many questions. God.)

Pet Peeve #043: Why aren’t grass chickpeas??

I don’t know man.

I don’t think I’m meant to be an accountant all my life.

But how do I get out of it? Yeah sure, I’m taking my degree in a non-accounting subject but honestly, you know what I really want to do? I want to paint t-shirts. And sell it. And swoon when people wear my t-shirts. I really just want to sit on the floor and paint t-shirts all day. I think that would make me very happy.

But the grass is always greener on the other side, am I right? And, that greener grass might not even pay the bills too. It’s like a really pretty green grass but I can’t actually feed on it. Because I don’t like grass that much. Unless that grass is chickpeas. I would feed on chickpeas. Okay a little off topic, but you know what I mean?

Ah life, you cost so much!

I guess I have to wait for that dream. Soon, Sullen. Soon.

Pet Peeve #041 – Dear SMRT

Dear SMRT,

I am very grateful for your service to this country. You’ve progressed our train service so much. Really, I am grateful. But even then, I can’t help but wonder, what is with the recent frequent train breakdowns, the delayed service, the poor ventilation –  I wonder if the reason why these “problems” are so apparent and obvious now is because I am growing older & dissatisfied or, it is just really SMRT’s lack of efficiency? Are you guys stuck in a rut? Do you need help? A ladder? A rope?

I admit that Singaporeans are generally pissy people. We like things a certain way, and if it’s not done, we will get REALLY whiny. Man, we are professional complain-ers. I’m trying my best to not fit in the “typical Singaporean” stereotypes. But, c’mon, help me out here. Show us some transparency, tell us honestly what is the problem, how you are going to tackle it, what is the plan, what is the alternative, just tell us frankly why everything seems to be so wrong with SMRT nowadays. Please understand, I am not mad at SMRT workers/employees/staffs, I know you guys are probably as frustrated as us commuters.

I promise you, a large portion of Singaporeans are understanding and patient. We will listen if you cut all those PR crap and tell us straight up. After all, you are our only train service provider, you got us pretty much wrapped up around your finger. We have got no choice but to be patient. At least give us some sort of an idea of what’s going on, maybe?

Sigh, it’s a little frustrating.

Pet Peeve #040 – Stupid Reviews

When we want to buy a product, we will Google it right?

For reviews, opinions, ratings, pros, cons, etc., etc.

But some people should be banned from ever writing out a review.

A review is suppose to be helpful to the buyer. Not make them angry.

Here’s a perfect example:
