If we saw an obese, we'd think: ATE TOO MUCH! WAY WAY WAY TOO MUCH!
If we saw a friend online on a beautiful Saturday morning, we'd think: LOSER! NO LIFE! (Ya, I am the one online on a beautiful Saturday morning :P)
Sometimes when I am having an important conversation, my mind doesn't quite follow the flow, and I'd go "Have I just been assumed/presumed/misunderstood?"
Take for example..
Yesterday I visited Gooly's school, met the principal and asked the necessary questions. For those uninitiated, Gooly was born in January, thus eligible to start his primary education a year earlier (should we go back to Malaysia.) So I asked the principal if he could go to K2, instead of K1.
Immediately I was presumed/assumed to be KIASU!
In her words, she said, "Your child will VOMIT if you pushed him too hard!" (and she made a retching sound)
No, no, no, no.. you don't know me. I am anything BUT kiasu.
I'm asking because I wanted to know.
No, no, no.. I don't want my child to VOMIT *retching sound*
Yes yes yes.. If pushed too hard, they will VOMIT! *retching sound*
Geeez.................... I was only asking! Don't assume/presume I am expecting him to gain a degree by next year!
It's kindergarten...... Vomit mud kwai?
