If you were a bookish person like I do, you would definitely know the famous-amous book of The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen R. Covey.
|Note the word "know", not "read". Because I know the book, but I never read it.|
And just for your information, it has nothing to do with this post. Ha!
But I want to talk about CHIP. I had the privilege of meeting/knowing these people who work in a mysterious and highly interesting ways that I cannot fathom. Cue in...
|...The Mysterious Persons...|
CHIP #1: The couple in the cinema.
Q.L. and I were watching a movie. Not just any movie, but The movie.
|I bet you thought it was the Transformers, didn't you?|
And what can be CHIP about this? Well, a couple sat at my far left (note the word "far"). And throughout the time, there was this annoying bumping/jerking actions from them. After the n-th time they did it, I was pretty damned annoyed. Cue in...
|...my annoyed face.|
See, I was watching a comedy and I had to keep an eye on my bag for fear of safety (which was put near them, no one was sitting on my left). I didn't think anything was amiss at that time, so I continue to watch my movie (coz I paid, see. I've paid.)
After the movie, I told Q.L. about it and highlighted my annoyance. What surprised me was that she said she saw the girlfriend's legs were crossed on top of the boyfriend's lap.
Issue #1: Let's leave it to the imagination about what they were doing. But honestly, people, it's a freaking children-rated movie. Not some lovey-dovey romantic chick flicks. And justsoyouknow,thepeoplebehindyousawexactlywhatyouweredoing.
CHIP #2: The skinny-like-a-woodboard girl at the food court.
Yes, I could see that you were so thin and skinny and all. And I admit, I am not thin and skinny and all. However, skinny lady, there is a reason why there was a signboard asking you to "PLEASE QUEUE". There is really no need to...
|...sneak around us (to cut the Q, so to speak).|
Issue #2: The two characteristics are well-known through two. I did not believe for one second that you are the number one type, which is...
So, that leaves us with the number two option.
|If you were this, I must be an absolute idiot for not taking a picture of you.|
One word for this particular lady:
|With that attitude, no one would dream of becoming your cupid.|
CHIP #3: The kids at the bookstore.
Though I labelled them as kids, they were in fact teenage boys. Which kind of explained their CHIP behaviour, really.
|...a highly well-known bookstore...|
and some "kids" who went there obviously not for reading/buying any kind of books...
|Kids, you are equivalent to this Annoying Orange. See how annoying that is?|
Issue #3: Well, for one, I was there to read books. And I knew that I wasn't in your way, except if you count ignoring your childish "Hi~~", then I do apologize. Therefore, it stands to reason that your comment about my body would not have any effect on me.
|And if you think your nasty little remark is going to leave me crying for days, it goes to show you are kids, lil' boys.|
So, there you have it. My own compilation of CHIPs. Do you have some?
