Stupid girl


So you know how when you're waiting to cross the road, and a truck goes by and then someone yells out something, and you instinctively turn to look in the direction of the noise, and you see an ah pek sitting in the back of the truck grinning at you, and you realise that he called out only 'cos he wanted to see what you looked like?

Yeah, I hate that when it happens.


I took a taxi home after buying dinner and with the many packages I was carrying, somehow ended up with my wallet in my lap. I had this clever idea that I would pay the taxi fare with small change which I keep in my purse. So when the time came to pay, I 'd of course completely forgotten about my wallet. I only realised my wallet was missing when I stepped out of the taxi and after the taxi had zoomed away without me being able to check the license plate number.

So I immediately rushed into the house and called the cab company immediately to say that I'd left my wallet in the taxi. After about 45 min of waiting, calling the credit card company to deactivate the card, enduring scoldings from both father and mother, I got a call back from the cab company. "The taxi driver can't find the wallet, and he and the passenger he picked up after you searched everywhere. Do you think it dropped outside the taxi?" Whereupon I rush out of the house, and true enough, see my wallet sitting in front of the gate.

I feel like a fool now. Eheheh.

#1 is extremely irritating. Such men need to get over themselves. They'll whistle or honk at anything with breasts walking by. It's gotten to a point where unless I'm in the middle of road or something, otherwise I don't pay attention to anyone who isn't actually calling my name. Pah!

You are SO lucky to have found your wallet. The same thing happened to me last January in a taxi in NYC and I was devastated. Never found the wallet and neither did NY Taxi & Limo Service. Sigh.
