Hello there. I am Terry and I am a full-time undergraduate based in Singapore. I take photos, write a blog and design websites.

And no, I'm not a teddy bear.

Did I Do Anything Wrong?

Don’t know why everytime I lend a helping hand to others, in the end I’m being blamed for something else by the benifited party, or being struck down with bad luck.

For example, my father’s friend asked me to pass his son’s headset to him when I’m back in Singapore. I waited for 3 weeks and FINALLY my father’s friend’s son rang me up. With a very unpleasant manner he asked me to hand his headset to him. Politely I asked him where does he live so that I can meet him at the nearest MRT station. He told me that he lives in Ang Mo Kio.

So on one fine Sunday morning, as what we’ve agreed over the phone, I waited for him at the Ang Mo Kio MRT station by 9.45am (we’re supposed to meet at 10.00am). I waited till 10.30am and he didn’t even show up. So I left.

At 10.15am I received the call from him. I feel like banging my head against the wall, cursing myself for being so idiotic to pick up that sucker’s phone call. He roared and scolded me over then phone, complaining what I didn’t show up. I defended myself saying that I’ve been waiting since 9.45am, and left the MRT station only at 10.30am. He said he didn’t see me, and I bet that he’s late and he tried to put all the blame on me.

Hello? YOU’RE SUPPOSED TO COME OVER MY PLACE TO COLLECT YOUR STUFF, AND NOT ASK ME TO GO OVER TO YOUR PLACE TO DELIVER YOUR STUFF. And I’ve told you that I’m willing to deleiver it to you at the nearest MRT station of our house. I am further away from the meeting place and I’m early, while you asshole was so God damn late although that freaking station is just at your doorstep.

This is totally ridiculous.

And when sometimes I volunteered to do something (i.e. collecting homework for absentees), SOMEBODY thinks that I’m acting as a hero.

Sometimes I volunteered to sweep the floor (happened in 2003), and SOMEBODY wanted me to mop the floor and demanded the room to be sparkling clean (I’m your roommate).

Sometimes I do things to make life easier for others, others would make life even more difficult from me.

I will still try helping out other, but just hoping that others will take that effort for granted. Just a warm Thank You is already enough. Is it really hard for you to say the magic word?
