The old folks in my house are super hilarious and annoying at the same time. Now, both my parents are well into their 60s. 67 years old to be exact. My aunt too is already 69, and my uncle is probably 68. They misplace things and kick up a fuss whenever they couldn’t find it, and it’s always entirely their fault actually.
Just yesterday, the house went upside down searching for the bloody cordless phone. Someone must have used the phone and left it somewhere else and not the receiver. We have told them a million times to make it a point to put it back on the receiver after use. I guess we just need to get an old fashion phone attached with a cord. This should solve our misery.
Sometimes , my uncle would help to pick up Sasha from the tuition centre behind our house. That is when one super hilarious incident happened.
Uncle went to the tuition centre, rang the door bell and asked for Sasha.
Uncle: Chen Sha Sha (In Mandarin)
Tuition teacher: Stay back. (In English)
Uncle: …… Nurul Farisha…. (he doesn’t understand a single word of English)
Tuition teacher: She’s staying back.
Uncle: …….. Nurul Farisha Atika Tan.
Tuition teacher: ………
She went to get Sasha.
Sasha: Aiyoh! I have to stay back for class lah! Please go home now! Sigh! Sia sui! (In Mandarin).
When Sasha told us of this incident, we almost peed in our pants, laughing at the incident. Well, at least, he remembers Sasha’s full name even at such old age, and he learned two new words in English – “Stay back”.
