The Girlfriend biggest achievement
Before i start, i am amused by how generous the Girlfriend was in allowing me to post this story up. Thanks to dear, who most probably tear my site down after re-reading what happened last week.
The Girlfriend was faced with a mammoth task last week, getting to and back from a full week seminar in KLCC Convention Centre. Sounds easy? Not if you stay in Klang. The notorious traffic jam to travel that daily 80km send currents down her spine and it was only courteous that the Boyfriend decides to do something to alleviate that headache.
So the Girlfriend stayed over at my place. Expected to be chaffeur driven to the doorstep, I posed the challenge to her on the way back home after moving half her wardrobe in my boot, could you take the LRT from KL Sentral? I mean after all, it is nearby my office and i dont have to suffer traffic and be late for work.
"Err,err, I DONT KNOW HOW TO TAKE LRT!" was the Girlfriend reply.
Apparently they are two kinds of people in this situation. One that will all out accept the fact that they cant do it, and the other one that will insists all things can be done eventhough he/she doesnt have a clue. Apparently, we both fell in the two distinct categories.
Heard of the saying "The blind leads the blind?"
Thus the night before the big day, the blind lead the blinder into the LRT Putra station. As confident as Donald Trump before revealing the Chosen One, the blind said "this path shall be the one" as they headed to the platform.
"Are you sure this is not going to the other side of the line?"
"Good question (think to himself). No, we are on track. Secretly hoping his head/tails answer better be right if not we would need to U-Turn"
As the train approached, we jumped in and prayed for the best. Four stops later, we miraculously arrived outside KLCC. Confidence full to the bream, we made our way back to my car, 4 stops away at KL Sentral.
On Monday morning, like an eager schoolgirl, the Girlfriend confidently walked towards the entrance and beeped her Touch n Go Card, jolly and gay, proud to have learnt one thing.
To take the LRT to work.
Just as she disappeared up the stairs to the platform, the Boyfriend finally breathed properly.
Phew, my ego is still intact.
