Poyo Guys Aren't Glorious
Dipos oleh avid

So, let's just say you're working on a project with a couple of friends. As per usual, the project's workload is divided into smaller parts. Everybody have their own part to do. And yahtzee! Finally the project is done. Everybody's happy. But, there are some of 'em who fucked you up by saying:


"Meh, your job is a piece of cake. My obese grandma could've done that."

I was born as the eldest son in my family. That means I was trained to put up with my younger siblings bitchiness and take it like a real gentleman. That means no hollering, no fighting and no biting your younger siblings. I always got told by my mom that 'abang sulung kena mengalah dengan adik-adik'.

And when I grow up, I became a much more diplomatic and pretty peaceful. There's this one time I apologized to my senior after he threatened me for reporting a case of which he stole my walkman and my 'Take Off Your Pants and Jacket' cassette. I live to this day to curse myself for that.

I blew up an offer to join the university's debate team (no judgement here, please) from one of the members because I think I can't even win arguments with any of my friends, let alone to win a frickin' debate with established jerk-off debaters out there.

When I was on a takraw team, some shallow dudes would always undermine the role of 'feeder' which happens to be my position. When I was on kompang team, some of the 'abang-abang' who play the fancy beat labelled me and my mates who plays the 'belalu' beat as 'not important'.

And as for now, I'm being undermined by a lot of obnoxious guitarists for my niche instrument - bass. Yeah, I always get that 'you have only 4 strings to handle', 'you can't be heard', 'you play bass just because you can't play guitar a.k.a guitard' stereotypes. 



Take a look at 1:10-1:27 to see how fucked up this song was without the bass guitar


And as expected, yeah, I put up with all of that craps.


Well my point is, as tempting as it is to be at center of attention, sucking up the glory of your team, getting girls crazy over your guitar solos, maybe you should show a little appreciation to 'the other guys' who play their 'not important' part in the name of the team. Give credits where it's due.

Merasakan diri sndiri tidk penting dlm pasukan..adalah mencalar maruah diri sendiri. Merasakn org lain tak penting dlm pasukan..adalah mencalar kebijaksanaan diri sndiri

Yeah.
I used to get the fucking reaction a lot from my mates when I was in internship.
We had to do some projects and my part was 'not so important' part so, that was where my mates started talking and said, 'Hey, why don't we switch part coz I don't think you work as hard as everybody else do'.
And I was like wtf!!
Hahahaha.

cuak dengan ayat

'eleh kerje kau senang je..adik aku pon leh buat.tgok part aku punyer..susah babe'

hell that..spesis2 yang suke memandang orang/perkara 'not important tu' sekadar picisan je..selalu sgt berlaku dekat saya or even in assignment ke..project ke..

ntah..tapi kdang2 i hate those kind of poyo punyer orang..
even me pon..xsuke org merendah2kn or pandang sipi2 je apa yg saya buat even bnde tu senang giler..coz saya pon xsuke merendah2 kn org lain..
we are equal in natural..
so sape2 pon..same je..xde yang kecik2..xkan ade yang besar2..so same je aite..

point is..xkesah lah orang nk pnadang kite cam kacang ke..ape ke..yg penting..kita tahu kita hebat..org xnampak xpe..asalkan kita tahu yang kite buat dan mereka semua ADALAH SAMA mcm kita..!poyo2 langsung xcool kn..?

aku kena tunggu youtube loading dulu ni baru boleh bagi pandangan.


OK.

Bunyi macam kosong.takda jiwa.

Berbalik kepada cerita kau tadi. Jenis yang merendahkan 'not important' ni mestilah orang sama yang selalu tinggal soalan 2markah dalam periksa. Lepas tu bising kenapa tak dapat A. Ha, lu paham ke idak ni?
