Rude cities: KL ranks third
21 Jun 2006
KUALA LUMPUR: It wouldn’t surprise anyone who drives, parks, shops or uses public transport here, but Malaysia’s capital city has emerged the third-worst in the world for sheer rudeness.
Only Bucharest and Mumbai are worse when it comes to common courtesy, a Reader’s Digest survey of 35 of the world’s capitals has found.
Asian cities generally fared poorly in these rankings, eight of nine of them in the bottom 11, raising the notion that what is considered courtesy in the West — holding doors, helping strangers, service with a smile — is culturally alien in Asia.
But what they dont know is KL is also the only city with the highest number of Millionaires per square meter! Everyone seems to own a piece of road themself, because its their road and they own it, they can drive anyway they wanted. It doesnt matter they are on the wrong side of the road nor does it matter if they are endangering the life of other road users ... its their road and they can drive anyway they like! If you dont like that, then goan buy your own road ok?!
Today I was on my way to Carrefour Sri Endah when suddenly this millionaire in his Marsilee (whois on the wrong side of the traffic) charged towards me knowing I would let him pass .... he knew I would step on my brakes and let him have his way bcoz I m pretty dem sure he is the millionaire who bought this road (judging from the way he drives)
So, the next time someone ask you why Malaysian so rude, you tell them because most of the rude peeple were Millionaires!
