Let's start a thread listing the selfish things (in your views) that people do. Hopefully a collection of this would start us thinking that we should not be doing the same things! I will start with one.
In the gym, 'Fitness First' in Wisma Consplant, when there are limited (even through there are 20) threadmills, it is a known fact that there is going to be high usage between 6 and 8 in the evening. Notices are put on every machine with the polite request "Please be considerate to others and restrict use to 25 minutes betwen 6 and 8 pm". All the machines are even programmed to stop after 25 minutes. There was this wonderful guy. He used 25 minutes. Stood on the machine and did his stretching for 5 minutes. Then he restarted the machine and did another 25 minutes. There were at least 10 people waiting to use it. Later on I found him using a large water container to fill it up with Sprite and he brought it home. There was also a notice to indicate that members should not fill up their bottles as the drink bar is for drinking from provided glasses in the gym.
Do you blame his children for doing same in a family where such value system exists?
I live in one of the Goodyear aprts. I have seen many a times, this particular mother or father who bring their 1 year old or so to the pool. The stupid idiots take their kid who is ONLY wearing his diapers into the pool!
Man, where do this people come from?! Whenever this happens, most of the time, the other parents including me will quickly get our kids out. And the idiots are so thick skinned that they continue with this.
We have complained to the management, guards and even thinking of the PM! But I doubt it will change anything bcoz' I think they are just plain idiots who have only recently been exposed to civilization. All these while it has been the river, where nobody gives a damn. It's also probably the habit, huhh?!
Malaysia Boleh! Mesti Boleh!
I saw on a few occasions, a full tudunged lady in full dress playing in the hotel swimming pool and when the pool attendants asked her and her kids who were similarly attired to wear proper attire, who else but the husband come shouting at the pool attendants what right they had to do that since this is a muslim country and muslim ladies cannot expose their hair in public. If they want to play with water, go to a river or sea or waste water pond. In fact the mat sallehs were complaining to the attendants who had to do something. These people really do not have any grey material anywhere.

hmmm.. i'm not sure if this is selfishness or gluttony:
sun-n-surf cafe in sunway lagoon resort hotel.. dinner buffet... well-known for fresh oysters :)
once a fresh load comes out from the kitchen, you'll see ppl piling up these fresh and juicy oysters onto their plates (sometimes filling the entire plate with oysters, leaving bits and pieces for the others....

Xweird - It is selfishness and gluttony (I would add shameless). The 'misbehaviour' - I am using a mild term here :) - at buffet table by many people have always fascinated me. When I was in Sydney for holiday a year ago, we were staying at this hotel where buffet breakfast was served daily. There was a tour group - sorry, I have to say this, from Malaysia - staying there. The tour guide made them gathered in the lobby in the morning and then led them in for breakfast. 45 or more people rushed for the long buffet table. The whole table collapsed and crashed with a deafening roar. Food was everywhere on the carpet - even on the curtains and window panes. A few people landed on the meat section and there were bacon and ham in their hair. Some were drenched in orange juice. Others in milk. What a sorry sight. The waiters and waitresses were stunned - that was an understatement. My family and I made great effort to indicate that we did not know them from Adam them and checked out of the hotel. The receptionist asked me if I were from Malaysia. I replied "Me no speako Ingrik. Me no understando, okay, okay" and fled.
That was a good one!! I work in the hotel line and i have seen my fair share of these, i wouldn't call them gluttons. These idiots take the stuff but don't finish it. I have seen one hero take a dinner plate and scooped ice cream that was like mount everest and when they left they hardly finished a quarter. Unfortunately we did not have a penalty for non finishing of food. Actually I am ashamed that i am of the same species as them. If they are animals then it is probably ok but to take food and leave it uneaten is sinful and i hope like hell that those fellas in their next life would die of starvation.
18-07-2003, 04:43 PM
hmm something else to add here about buffet:
the art of eating at a buffet should be: sample a bit of everything (if you don't know how it'll taste), then take more of what you like on your subsequent helpings... i've seen many ppl piling up their plates with all sorts of dishes on the first helping, only to leave the unwanted food uneaten...
Not to mention the people who go for free buffets during open houses by vips. I wouldn't want to expose my children to such displays of gluttony and selfishness. Probably these vips get a perverse pleasure in seeing people fight for food.

I just came back from Giant Hypermart. As crowded as usual.
Whilst I was pushing my trolley along the frozen food section, there were 2 young kids playing ball (plastic air ball) and running around playing similar to basketball and catch. These kids were completely out of control and many a time nearly collided with other browsing customers. They practically used the whole length of the lane to play ball!. I just can't tolerate this delinquent behavior. Really uncivilized in a public place.
I nearly wanted to yell at them to stop but maybe I didn't want to create a scene. I totally blame the parents concerned who let their kids loose like that. A supermart is NOT a playground!! In fact it's a bloody dangerous place where stock items may just happen to fall on someone's head!. I sometimes wish it was like Makro, long ago where kids were banned from entering the shopping area. Shopping is a real pleasure, no unruly kids , shouting, screaming and sulking kids. I don't hate kids but food markets are not kid's playground.
Yeah!.. I know... some parents just insist on having their kids around, but for goodness sake, keep a constant eye on their whereabouts and possible juvenile behaviour. This is not the 1st time I've seen kids out of control!.
Talking about supermarkets, one thing that I find extremely annoying are those people who squeeze the fruits with their thumbs and then throw it back into the pile. They expect other people to buy it and they way they choose the fruits , one would think they are choosing their life partners!

The timing of the traffic light at the Section 16 junction is a typical act of selfishness. The lane with mush less traffic gets longer Green time than the traffic coming from City/Bangsar, forcing them to go up the bridge and thus part with their RM1. Mind you, a lot of them have nothing with being stinggy with their RM1; they turn off to Section 16, and other adjacent areas. W why shoud they go up the bridge, pay the RM1, and make a big turn to turn back to their destinations?

apparently sprint highway controls these traffic lights.

Buffet again. Went to Holiday Villa's Palm Terrace for a dinner buffet last night (27 July) with my family. There were 3 families in the adjourning table (to be exact, three tables joined together). The six children ran around all the tables, generally having a lot of fun. They fell down, get up again and ran. They climbed onto chairs. One of them pretended that the chair was a horse. One boy used his father's handphone to play loud 'Pink Panther' tune non-stop. The parents screamed to their children to come to eat. They screamed to their children when they talked to them. They did not scream to their children for creating havoc in the restaurant. One boy dashed in and out between tables and knocked into a waiter. The waiter spilled the whole content of his tray onto the carpet floor. The boy cried. The parents gave the waiter a dirty look. One little girl sat on the floor and picked her nose. Their tables were full of oyster shells - I think they must have cleaned out the restaurant - half-eaten fried chicken, half-eaten cakes and food droppings all over the floor.
Believe me, if I have a gun, I would discharge the entire ammunition on them, cocked my gun, and said "They won't be coming back" in Arnie's deep voice.

Reversing car out to the street
i stay in USJ 11, many times, when i am reversing the car out from the car porch onto the street, i wld look to my left, right & left again to make sure it’s clear to continue, but by the time i am half way thru or more, suddenly there will be a car speeding thru without giving the right of way to me ... gosh, real selfish drivers (man or woman drivers!) who think that the whole world shld stop for them.
When i drive in a residential street & see anybody reversing a car before i reach at the gate/area, i would stop & let them continue, i think they should be given the right of way.
Circus shows at roundabouts
Typical scene at a roundabout... 80% of the drivers think they hv the right of way and would inch out even though they can't move on. The result is nobody can move at all... this circus show will go on everyday without fail especially during peak hours. i am amused just to look at these 'innocent' faces, they look like babies who don't even know that they hv created a mess for themselves... I am even more amused to see some bumper stickers/stickers on the cars that say: Baby On Board, and there is only the driver in the car… that explains why…
It seems that not many know the rules of using a roundabout such as:
Drivers shld apply their vehicle signals to indicate their directions.
To avoid points of conflicts, left lane is for left turns only, for exiting the roundabout, the centre lane is for exiting the roundabout or driving on to the next exit while the right lane should only be used for driving onto the next exit.
In other words, if leaving roundabout less than halfway around it, driver shld enter from left lane or left line of traffic.
Leaving roundabout more than halfway around it, driver shld enter from right lane.
Leaving roundabout halfway around it, driver may enter from any lane.
If there is already congestion & you happen to be in the left lane yet not ready to exit yet, do try to give way to drivers exiting the roundabout, including vehicles coming from behind.
With so many ‘babies’ drivers around, perhaps the solution to counter this is to do away with the roundabout & replace them with traffic lights, at least the havoc will only return when there is a thunderstorm that wld knock the traffic lights out…Reversing car out to the street Circus shows at roundabouts

OUT OF THE CAR WINDOWS!
One occasion while driving home in USJ, the driver in front of me wound down his window and phew.. spat out of the window. Drove my car past him and noticed he was quite well dressed. Probably someone just out of the rural to the urban.
The other occasion also in USJ, the car in front of me left a trail of rambutan skins as they ate and threw out. It was a family.. guess uncivicminded ones. Overtook them and gave them a stare.
I believe all these have to be taught from our homes. Looking at the behavior of children will reflect their parents. Not all, but at least 95%.;)
29-07-2003, 01:14 PM
Considering most other uncivilized mannerisms among our fellow citizens, I would honestly rate "spitting out of a car window" and "throwing fruit skins" as described by janelim, as within the top 5 of most uncivilized, uncooth and perverse manneerism. Worse still, it's a developed habit among our fellow Malaysians.
I've witnessed the throwing of fruit skins many times along the outstation trunk roads. Yep.. buy fruits along the way, whole family have a picnic in the moving car, then the finale...all un-edible parts to the most convienient "tong sampah"....out of the window. They wouldn't care less who's driving behind!!.
Spitting out of the window... This I cannot tolerate!.. I would certainly react strongly to this and probably clobber that pervert!
29-07-2003, 01:16 PM
Was driving on highway, following white Mercedes from behind, driver in front spits out of window, the spit travels at 90kph toward my car, hits the side of my door, and ever since then, the stain had been impossible to clean out thoroughly...
29-07-2003, 08:06 PM
Yecccchhhhhhh :eek: I get my fair share of banana skins and rambutan peel. Even had a section of a durian husk hit my front fender on the way to Jasin once! Naturally, thrown from a car. Sadly, they were all teenagers.
Going back to the supermart. Giant, especially.
Hate to see parents taking bottles of cold soya bean or water or packets of food for their kids to drink and eat and then leaving them all over the place AND NOT PAYING FOR THEM!!!!
And they look so smug.

There is this gentleman who wears khaki pants and a white shirt. He looks so 'colonial'. Very polite too. He greets every body with a 'good evening' as he takes his little white doggie for a stroll - well, I think he goes for a stroll but his doggie goes for some unloading. The unloading would be on other people's little grass patches outside their houses - you know, the little circular patch where the house owner plants his tree and tends to his flowers. Never mind the house owner dipping both hands into dog **** if he is not careful. Oops... did I say that it is council land? So this little doggie does its business daily. Not once but twice on my plot of council land. Ever sit in your garden in the evening on a dry day when this natural air-freshener sends aroma into your garden. So I tell this gentleman very politely not to let his doggie **** on my plot. He is ever so polite. He smiles and apologizes. How can I get angry when a person is so polite? Then his doggie did its thing again - yesterday. And again this evening (about 2 hours ago - it is 8.53 pm now). I took a shovel, scooped up the remains of some canned food of chopped liver and intestines with low quality minced beef, and walked all the way - 11 houses down - to this gentleman's house and put it on his little plot of council land. I never felt so good in my life :D
29-07-2003, 11:54 PM
Jolly good show!!, my man. :D :D
30-07-2003, 10:22 AM
"My plot of council land"? What do you mean by that?
30-07-2003, 11:36 AM
clap! clap! clap! bravo! bravo! :D
I wish I could do the same. About a year ago, this lady came walking to my plot of council land (btw Sungkai, you should read another thread on this). She stood there a while.. and at that time I was wondering what she was doing there. Said 'hi good evening' to her, she responded by smiling back at me. What I didn't see at that time was, she actually stopped to let her puppy to poopoo there!
I was very furious when I saw what the doggie did to my flowerbeds. Waited for two days for her to finally come back. When she stopped at her puppy's favorite poopoo spot, I said "Hey- hey get way from there. Or you want me to bring my bulldog to do his thing on your land?" She was stunned, didn't say anything and walked away. I guess I juz couldn't control my anger that day.. hmmhhh.. maybe it was that time of the month..?;)
30-07-2003, 12:35 PM
Wonder if there is such a thing as a dog repellant. Something that smells a certain way that perhaps marks a dog's territory or something else which prevents the dog from wanting to do its business there?
Cool Hand Luke
30-07-2003, 02:45 PM
Gohead - Thank you.
Joecool - Perhaps not so much of a dog repellant - it is not the dog's fault - but we should get a repellant for inconsiderate dog's owner. I am sure the poor little doggie does not wait - trying controlling when you are about to let go - by crossing its hind legs and hops around and wait until its owner takes it out on a lease and leads it to somebody's council plot of land to do its business.
xweird, I would like to respond to your post/experience!
After the spit hit your door, you should chase after the Mercedes, go in front of him, and do the same thing, spit out from the window, try to make the spit go more than 110kph, then I am sure the spit will hit the Merdedes so HARD....till it sticks on the car forever! !!!! Then....u can be the Greatest Spitter of the Year! hehehhehe.....
Sorry, I was just playing...! These people are just a bunch of idiots!
30-07-2003, 10:52 PM
Two cats, defnitely belongs to someone because of the straps on the cat's neck, enjoy sleeping under my car now and then, leave some **** on the ground the next morning when I drove my car away. Of all the houses, why my car, why my house? If only I find out whose cats are those...
31-07-2003, 12:59 AM
Sorry to hear your predicament over a cats natural behavior.
I really don't think your problem would not qualifiy to the main topic. The owners could not possibly be at fault in this case. Earlier in this thread, CHL has well described a classic and blatant act of inconsideration, thoughlessness and selfishess by the dog owner.
Even if you get hold of the owners and tick them off, what can the owners really do but to do away with their loved pets or lock them up for good,....maybe better still the owners move to another neighborhood to solve your problem......is that what you want to expect of them?
Cats are very unlike dogs. It's known that cats do not learn anything by scolding, beating or scaring them. Cats live by their natural instincts and behavior which mystifies man todate.
So do dogs, barking and howling in the night especially on heat.. it's all natural behavior. The owner cannot bind the mouth to shut it up. He'd probably shout at the dog and tell it to shut up. Even then, no guarantees...You encourage or tell him to get rid of the dog, lock it up inside the home, he'd probably take serious offence from you.
It's just unfortunate we co-exist with animals and pet lovers in any neighborhood and we just have to tolerate to a certain extent. I safely assume when people reside in terrace houses we have to exercise and expect much compromise and tolerance here.
Your problem is nothing in comparison to hearing horror stories of home renovation works that severely affect the immediate neighbors and result in broken friendships.
Cool it!!.. it's not a "big" problem.

Costly but what the heck. Mr & Mrs Cool Hand Luke decided to go to see a movie. She knew that I like Angelina Jolie not because of her acting skills but nevertheless, we still went. We paid RM11 each (special seats, no less). Sat in Row B of the THX theatre. Great ambience. Great sound system. Very comfortable chairs. Nothing could ever go wrong..... Now that there are no more cheap VCDs to watch - RM4 for the whole family but now it is RM44 (excluding popcorns, cokes and parking) but still I didn't mind. After all, we must not support the pirates (by the way, a movie called 'Pirates of the Carribean' is coming up... but that's another story).
A young couple sat next to me. Were they as entralled with Jolie's antics as I was? No way. There were more interested in each other's antics. The guy has his arm around the girl - all the way round until his hand was on her breast - and the girl was snuggling up to him (did I tell you that the arm of the seat can be raised?) so tightly you could not slip a one-cent coin through between their bodies. And they were talking non stop.
I have always been quite patient. Thirty-eight minutes into the movie, when Jolie's was beating the **** out of Simon Yam, they were still talking. Now, in all fairness, how was it possible to talk non-stop and watch the movie at the same time? I finally came to the conclusion; being dim-witted as I am, that they were finding the cheapest place to grope each other. I mean, the cheapest hotel room cost considerably more than RM22. For a moment, I was horrified that they were going to do it right there. I kid you not.
My wife and I left the theatre when Jolie was sitting astride a neon dragon signboard with both guns blazing. I didn't know what happened after that. Anybody here got a VCD to lend to me so that I can finish the movie? Oops.... I forgot. The original would not be here for quite some months yet. Sorry.
31-07-2003, 08:01 PM
How come I never see something like this before? Just kidding though...
It's really irritated when things like this happen in the cinema, and despite the nokia ads reminding us to switch off our hp, there are still idiots decline to do so. I guess they really want to "action", hey, this is my new ring tone!
31-07-2003, 10:58 PM
hei, xt900, sorry for not with u last sunday for tomb raider....:)
and yes, why i never saw those "shows" u mentioned chl?? maybe if u add another hand in between them, if they found out, they might not do it again! kidding:D
anyway, for those who dunno how to switch off their handphone in the cinema, take this: DON'T HAVE ONE!!!!! it's really annoying when u r listening to the dialogues, and then "las ketchup" sounds, or "huang hun" rings!!!
hey, if you wanna show off ur phone, advertise it!!! someone might have a much more expensive phone than yours, show-off a**hole! (sorry for this!)
so, ppl, pls be considerate! and be a human, not animals!!
Cool Hand Luke, why didn't you confront them and tell them to shut up! Or even better, throw them few ringgits to get a motel or something!
If I were u...i would do that!
01-08-2003, 01:45 AM
Cool Hand Luke, you should have just asked them to stop doing what they were doing instead of leaving the cinema. Get the cinema attendant to speak to them or something. I just feel that it's unfair that you and your wife had to leave and waste your RM22 just because of their immorality.
By the way, I thought the government said that cinema ticket prices would be lower to curb piracy? It was once lowered for a short moment before the cinemas introduced the "after 6pm" and "weekend" rates, which require movie-goers to pay more!
I have to amen to cslyl !!!
I think sometimes we should put our voices into actions, instead of keeping all those frustrations to ourselves and get upset. For Cool Hand Luke' case, he had to waste the money, time, and endure the frustrations!!! And yet, that idiot couple get to enjoy the movie, the making outs......without even knowing their are such idiots! NOT FAIR to Mr and Mrs Cool Hand Luke!
Next time just politely bring the issue to their faces. Of course, do it like an adult and professionally. U dont want to make urself become one of them!
01-08-2003, 10:45 AM
Problem is there are people in Malaysia who think it is their birthright to be a nuisance to others. You tell them to shut up and they will give you the evil stare. And sometimes talk even louder just to spite you. Just today I had a car who was driving very slowly in front of me. I signalled to overtake and he drove faster and then slowed down in front of me. This is one of those jokers with a modified Wira. What to do? I revved up the engine and overtook him from the left even though it is dangerous to do so. He got angry and gave chase and overtook me and then slowed down. What's up with this person? Maybe jealous because I have a nicer car or a seemingly speedier car? So what the heck, revved the engine until the VTEC kicked in and left him behind in a cloud of dust along the KESAS highway while expecting to be caught in a speed trap. He gave chase but could not match my speed I guess. So what's in people's mind these days?
joecool.....u sure sounded very pissed! cool down my man/woman...:)
Remember this might help cheer urself a bit: No one in the world is obligated to treat others good! So, if u met someone who is nice and good, cherish and appreciate he/her! And if u met those suckers or idiots (like what u described in ur case), then u will have to forgive them, bcos that's their parents/ fault, and u ought to be thankful u r not like them!
Of course, all of us are learning to be better each day.....we made mistakes, we sometimes acted like some idiots too, but we learn, we correct...God gives us enough time to get better! .....but pls do not be ignorant, don't take that as an excuse to do things that negatively affected others!

01-08-2003, 03:58 PM
Joecool - I can understand your flash of anger. But please do be careful. Road thugs like those you have mentioned would not hesitate to resort to violence. You do not want to antagonise these scum of society; not especially if your loved ones are in the car with you. These people would take an iron rod to your windscreen and then use it on you without hesitation. There are people who have gone past the point of no return and they are not concerned about the law or whether they end up in jail or not. You - as a law abiding person and with good sense in you - would never be able to stoop down to their level of violence.
I normally 'walk away' from such a situation. Not because I am a coward but because I am wise. Unless I think that I can match their level of violence and thirst for revenge, then I would be a fool to subscribe to such probable violence. If I feel 'righteously' furious and provoke a confrontation. What do I have to lose? Probably injury to my body. Probably living in fear for the next few months in case they come back for my family. What do they have to lose? Nothing. They are not even worried about going to jail (that is, if they are caught in the first place). And when a person is not worried about anything, he will do utmost harm.
01-08-2003, 04:59 PM
Well, I drove away from the situation. If the situation warrants it, I will turn to violence. I am not going to take a beating without fighting back and God knows I can inflict injury if I want to. I guess those self defence classes does come in handy after all.

Well, you can see the real attitude of a person when he drives a car. I do swear sometimes while I was driving, because of some joker who I don't know how he passed his undang-undang.
one passed undang-undang by paying "duit kopi"!!! Is a built-in culture within the world of driver licensing in Msia. 9 out of 10 paid to just to make sure they pass their driving tests, else...be prepared to fail! And I was the 10th person who didn't pay! :D
I had a friend who failed 7 times in his motocycle road test, and he only got it on the 8th test! WHY? Bcos he refused to pay "duit kopi"!!!
(hmmm..off topic again!:p )
I used to think that if I have right of way why should these idiots intrude on my rights but after some deeper soul searching, it may not be worthwhile to start any fights with these people as they are just worms. We don't have to trample them, someone else will, maybe their boss or whoever and they would get squished. We are several rungs up the food chain so why bother with them? Now I have kids and I value the time that i can spend with them.

Illegal dumping - Bulky waste thrown at the roadside
Sunday afternoon 3Aug - USJ 11/3...
A couple were seen taking down a few pails/buckets (the type used for painting) & other rubbish from their vehicle, a new green renault 4 wheel drive (cost more than RM100K)... and left them besides the trees at the roadside. They drive nice/expensive car, yet they did not want to pay to MPSJ to collect their bulky waste, RM25/RM50… And they do not stay at the house or on the street adjacent to this road, they drove to other streets, far away from their house to throw things they do not want, on other people's street..., if the tree can bark, i am sure it will.
Same goes to all others who had thrown their bulky waste/rubbish like furniture on the roadside, … they can afford to refurbish their nice homes with new furniture yet they hv no budget to discard their old furniture.
A quick guide on waste collection (obtained info fr Alam Flora on 4Aug):
(a) Free service - Domestic waste is collected every alternate days – no charges (part of assessment fee of course…)
(b) Paid service – garden/bulky waste
For SJ/USJ, half (or less) lorry load – RM25, more than half/full load – RM50. Applicable for:
- Garden waste (grass, branches, twigs) – if more than 5 plastic bags (…if you want to avoid paying, simply divide this waste accordingly as the collection is twice per month)
- Bulky waste (furniture – table, chairs, etc.
(note: for PJ/Shah Alam, flat fee of RM20 per load (half or full), charges are decided by local council, why the big difference in price, that’s another story…)
(c) Paid service – renovation waste
Reno plan need to be submitted for approval to MPSJ, if applicable, a ‘RORO’ bin (roll-on roll-off) will be provided for the waste, charges range fr RM500 to RM1000, actual to be decided by MPSJ according to the reno plan.

Thank you to the organisers of the 10km Run on Sunday. I am not sure if this has been done (it may have been) but when I was driving along Jalan Murni (on the stretch franking USJ5) yesterday at 6.00 pm, there were literally hundreds of pastic bottles and cups of 100Plus on the grass. Perhaps this post should not appeared under 'selfish things people do' but rather whoever is responsible, it would be appreciated if the rubbish could be cleared.

Well, if I have to fight I will but I believe always in the 36th Strategem of Sun Tze. Running away is the best strategy.

Yesterday, I saw the scattered 100 plus bottles & cans along Jln Murni too. But fortunately when I passed the road again today, they were all cleared. Thank you to those in charge of clearing the ugly sight!

Yes. It is definitely cleared. I passed that road daily and it is nice to see it clean again. Hope it will be the same for the 10 km run they intend to hold for Shah Alam's 3rd anniversary as a city.

I was in the gents dressing room. There were 4 cushioned benches (I don't know how many were there in the ladies changing room as I have never been there!). There was this man who - you won't believe it - on his back, stretched out full length occupying the whole bench. He was sending and receiving SMS from - obviously somebody he liked very much - for he was giggling away. A number of us gave him real dirty looks. By 4.00 pm after the steam room and long shower, he was still there, on his back with a fixed grin on his face. He was still sending SMS and he must have received quite a few because the buzzing tone drove us crazy. I have no objection to him being there. In fact I am very pleased that he has found such great happiness in the dressing room. But when there are four benches and some thirty people in the room, it did smack of selfishness. It was not very easy to put on your trousers standing up while balancing on one leg. In fact, one more 'elderly' man almost fell over.
Trivial? Perhaps. But if we are all going to go through life without a care for others, this world is going to be less pleasant to live in.

Darn it. These people are increasing in numbers! Perhaps you should have "accidentally dropped" a dirty pair of socks on him. Would probably clear the bench in a hurry!

Joecool - I was thinking more of getting the reception counter to let me use the PA system so that everybody (including the ladies in their dressing room) can hear: "Will the lovesick puppy who is laying down on his back on the bench in the gents dressing room please stop his SMS, which he has been doing for the past half an hour?" and finished with "By the way, he wears a blue t-shirt and khaki pants - all of you would know what he looks like when he comes out of the dressing room, thank you".

And get a harrassment or defamation suit on your hand? Nah. Maybe you should but I would not.
