Busy bodies without their owns lives just..

..continually poke into other people’s business where they aren’t welcome.

They really need to mind their own fucking business.

Not that they have any business obviously, as they are sticking their nose into other people’s, annoying their friends and generally being a good for nothing busybody.

It’s good when they get better jobs and are busy, so they can mind their own business as they finally have some!

What is it with some people, they just can’t stop sticking their noses in where it doesn’t belong?

There are some people in the world that really feel the need to pry, they don’t know where the line is.

I have a colleague who is like this, on the first meeting he will ask you those overly personal questions that are reserved for friends or closer aquaintances, not people you met merely 15 seconds ago..

He also likes ot lay his hands on people, that is just plain wrong for me, do not invade someones personal space, their zone, if you don’t know them very well you definately SHOULD NOT be laying your hands on them.

Not sure if he’s a pervert or just misguided, I’m pretty sure it’s the former rather than the latter.

People that touch me bug me, seriously, doesn’t it annoy you when someone you barely know touches you? I don’t mean they grab my ballsack and give it a squeeze..but still laying a hand on my leg or shoulder is something not appreciated.

Anyway back to the original topic, busybodies, bat poh…bah kong, why don’t they get a grip, get a life, get some interests.

You know the age old adage?

“Great minds talk about ideas and concepts, Mediocre minds talk about events and happenings, Small minds talk about people”

I think it’s true, honestly I do.

Get out of the gutter, think bigger, at least discuss something other than the rain or sunshine and the price of kangkong..

Some people pry too far, they become obtrusive in their thirst for knowledge of other people’s business, they should get the hint it’s not for them to know, they are not welcome nor entitled to the knowledge, so they should butt out..

They don’t get the message.

Some people just want to know everything about other people, you know the kinds, the office gossips, they don’t know the football score or what’s going on between Pak Lah and Dr. M but they sure know who’s bonking who and who took the last teabag…

I for one know which is more important…to me at least.

Some people have completely skewed perspectives..

Ah another day, another idiot!

    Well said. That’s how I felt actually in the office. This particular “Pak Poh” is our Office Manager but she crosses everyone’s path by being “SPECIALLY PAK”. We suffers If we do not respond to her “PAKNESS”. She makes our lives really difficult. I would leave my job but can’t find anything decent in the market these days…so I have to suck up to her “Pakness” in order to continue my stay in my job.

    ST, you hit it on the nail with the ‘invasion of personal space’.

    I don’t get why some people feel the need to touch your arm.. or shoulder when they are talking to you. Mucho-uncomfortable.

    Now.. if it was a hawttt woman. Please. go ahead. haha.

    “Small minds talk about people”

    Heh, kind of ironic isn’t it?

    “Great minds talk about ideas and concepts, Mediocre minds talk about events and happenings, Small minds talk about people”

    I hv 3 minds for differnt timing. First for work, second for almost everybody, depending on where I am. Hmm third one, I don’t always do that but occasionally I will but it’s reserved to the person who was involved in the matter only and not gossiping.

    By the way, did you ask him to get his hands off? Or I am more keen to know your answer to Suanie’s Q. hehehe j/k :p

    Dear Tiger,

    Malaysians are generally very friendly. If you’re sexually inviting, of course they are more than willing to test the invitations. In this case, you must make it clear that you’re not inviting. It’s just a natural you. Make him/her understand this. Problem solved. 🙂

    BTW, great men (generically put, not as in ‘gender’) talk about people, events and happenings, concepts and ideas. And yes, in that order.

    So many people get obsessed of having ‘great minds’ that they forget how to be great human-beings.

    It’s not about WHAT. It’s about HOW. I would rather listen to someone talking about ‘what is inside one’s skirt’, than someone preaching on rubbish ideas. IMHO, an honest stupidity is more valubale than an intellectual dishonesty.

    That’s why ‘gossip’ (no matter how ridiculous it appears!) has become an industry. It has been one of world’s most commercial and biggest selling comodities. Just ask the British tabloids and gossip consumers! 🙂

    Cos… you look gay. His gaydar is picking up the
    electronic chaff of your pseudo-gayness. You caress
    your Nikon D70 in an almost phallic manner.

    but you did let faggot sleep on ur lap before, no? 😛

    Haha funny you all assume he was touching me, he’s wiser than that, I just find it annoying even when he does it to other people, especially girls, I find it very inappropriate.

    Sharon: Market is quite ok what, keep looking..I really can’t tolerate such people.

    wombok: Dude a hot chick pawing me is a different matter entirely!

    Joel What: Not really if you get the concept, I’m not talking about a person or an individual particularly, I’m talking about people in general, and these type of people. Some particular people might have prompted my feelings but this can’t be classified as gossip.

    Rem: I don’t have any problems, I’m scary I look like an axe-murdered people don’t under any circumstances touch me. I would rather listen to neither and bugger off tbh, I prefer to talk about ideas and events than people tho, people bore me, they are on the whole stupid and predictable, especially after understanding the field of transactional analysis 😀

    thething: Yah…shit, wanna stroke my lens?

    KY: You too aswell I think 😛

    Busy bodies aren’t so bad but some of them start telling you what to wear, how to speak, what to eat, what to think, then it gets a bit troublesome.

  16. Kal July 15, 2006 at 1:21 pm #

    Yup, with all the opportunities available out there to develop yourself and enrich your life, some people still prefer to sit around and talk out of their arse, pry into the lives of others, and waste away their own. Extremely pitiful but true.

    Just “bumped” into your weblog. you make a valid point about the sheer nosiness. I got it on my first job here in Malaysia. Bit of a shock compared to UK. I work for the satellite TV company and so many people wanted to know stuff about me particurly what car I drive, the money I earn. I sensed a culture of one upmanship, gossip and any chance to put down the matsalleh/gwilo (excuse my spelling).I learnt generally to either keep my mouth shut or feed them information which upon scrutiny is ridiculous. anyone i don’t like trys to touch me, i give them the english bulldog look,
    nice blog BTW
