I got hit on the other day. I’d just bought breakfast from the bakery downstairs. Heading back to the office, I decided to call Ina. I noticed a man was sort of following me, but paid no attention since he also looked sort of lost. He was playing with his mobile and looking at the names and numbers of the building. I was standing at the lifts heading to my office, swinging my breakfast and chatting with Ina. Then it happened.
Guy: Excuse me.
I tell Ina to hold thinking he was going to ask for directions and lower the phone by an inch so she can still hear everything.
G: You look familiar.
A (laughing in my head): Have we met before?
G: I don’t think so. Do you work here?
A: Yes (pointing upwards).
G: Oh k…where are you from?
G: Which part?
A: (I tell him).
G: Oh k…I’m from Bangsar.
G: Umm…can I have your number so we can keep in contact?
A (still laughing in my head): I’m already engaged.
G: Oh k…sorry. Thanks (and walks off)
I immediately go back to my phone and laugh, saying, “I kena ngorat!” Ina is already laughing when I excitedly re-enact the whole exchange.
Not only did that incident make my day, but the jealousy on Eddie’s face when I told him later that day made my night too :)
