U dun say. Add milk, less sugar, straight, less milk, diluted tea, "kick no in", "kick ball", teh with si, kopi kosong, yuan yang, hot water, coke, tiger, SOYA bean etc😉

V power memory. Next time go, he or she can remember what u ordered 2 weeks ago somemore. Scary. This type brain cannot retire, straightaway chui. Senile. 😅😅

Late tea break yada.

Safe ride

let me weave a story on coffeeshop assistants and borneo motors:)

 

my grandfather being a foochow own a few coffeeshops years ago, now jia dao zhong luo liao

 

since he never took MBA, he tot family office business means sons and grandkids must work the floor

 

so i have to train my memory to order take kopi, teh, softdrinks, ka dai, siew dai, nan nai whatever to shout to back office (hot counter assembling kopi and teh n sometimes milo no dinosaur), unlike ding tai fung got display one....

 

any mistakes i made, i have to finish the drinks:)

 

guess i must be quite incompetent cos i din end up doing sales in borneo

 

and my ah gong drove a toyota corona:)

 

if i was in borneo, his next car shd be toyota too, end up change to honda accord hondamatic:)

 

 


Surely there are lower pay people than I am but I suspect I might be at the fairly bottom of the pyramid.
On a serious note, fully agree with you. Health is important, money is never enough..one need to step back and ask oneself what is his priority in life.

 

i shd be below u at the pyramid:)

 

cos i took govt advice be healthy walk and take public transport

 

until kid came along....

But its a sin to blame everyone else because they are the cause of you not been successful.

some jobs redesign till out of jobs, or they will say do higher value stuff but wat higher value cannot measure and compensate, case in point car SEs...

 

i got one uni lecturer say something i will forever rem

 

his exams all open books, logic is this:

 

I don nid to test how powerful ur memory chip or storage is

 

when u go out to work, its ur brain CPU speed that matters..

 

 

and its a lot tougher to set open book exams questions...

 

 

 

gynae salary easy to calculate, go in clinic see how many big tummy chio bus waiting for consultation know liao, and the devliery charges in the hospital bill......multiply by number of patients and lifecycle of less than 9 mths....etc etc

Car dealers should just put these at their showroom. Can customize somemore. Want leather or fabric seats? Sports rim? Start buttom or traditional key turn? Manual or auto transmission? LED or halogen lights?

0*hiGMu0kkUXL5Z3tG.jpg

Purchasing a high value item like a car should be an engaging and indulging experience to feel and touch the car, flirt with the sales staff and eventually drive a hard bargain and feel satisfied at the end of the experiential walk down the showcase, to get your money's worth.

Car buying is an experience of the real look, touch, smell, sound, ergonomics, negotiations etc.

 

Online purchase cannot fulfill that and car showrooms and SEs have their place in car purchasing process.

Eehmm, in a way, we all are order takers. From the billionaires/millionaires to the salesman at Borneo.

The billionaire/millionaire takes orders from the open market, what ppl most want (besides his wealth), what his partners in crime, oops, i mean business partners propose. Atas order taking. Top level. Strategy like in a war.

Majority of us. We take orders from bosses, customers and sometimes colleagues. Not so atas. Middle level. Generals, platoon commanders, small cheese movers. Got chance to be promoted to top level if not dead by then.

Majority who claim to be in this lower level. Order taking from everyone who walks in, calls in, flys in, sails in, drone in, i mean, electrified fans, oops car in. Busiest level but usually not paid as much cos the pie-sharing here is amongst alot alot alot of order takers. Low level. Foot soldiers, first in line to die, i mean to be heroes. 😅

Hehe...just yada-ing.

Safe ride
Cheers

Need to gien this kind of experience meh? Well I guess different strokes for difference folks......I know some of the rich don’t bother with the showroom experience, much less any test drive and just call up their usual salesman to book a car for them. The new car is even delivered to their residence and the salesman drives the old car back as trade in, cheque in hand.

No lah. Car shopping is a fun experience. The idea of self-service or online car buying came about coz many felt the SE contributed little in the 'selling' process. It was more of we buying rather than be sold. So ADs might as well cut out the middleman n pass the savings directly to us

I hope your uni lecturer is not a law professor.

If I go court and see my lawyer faster open his text book cos the other laywer mention a legal term he doesn't know I worry.

Or a gynae ask my wife open her legs and then faster open his textbook to see check what is supposed to be what I also worry.

Or pilot pull out his textbook coz the copilot said something he doesn't know I will worry.

Or the vet doing vasectomy on my dog faster pull out his textbook I worry for my dog maybe cut off wrong bit.

medicine confirm never open book, my hall mate frm med fac confirmed one.  poor chaps gotta rem all the antibiotics, symptoms diagnosis processes...cos like u say, in A&E, no textbook to refer....

 

law got open book, not to refer legal terms, but legal precedents. that say, lots of work done before court appearance

 

pilot boh textbook lah, thats y the training certification exam is so tough.  just like when we go driving test, u cant flip highway code to check


Please go read iras website bro. your info is probably from 1999
