Interesting conversation

This morning, I took my place again in the swarm of people commuting with the LRT. As with other days, I got into the train, got a spot, scanned for other passengers that my need my seat more than me (Aren't we courteous?). Finding none, I took my book out and began reading. A few stops later, I noticed from the corner of my eye, a well dressed man with a small backpack stood in front of me. In fact, I wouldn't have noticed him if not for his "hip-hop" ringtone (some rap song.... mobiles these days... )

What amused me was his conversation....

The Conversation

Man

:Hello?
(pause)

Man

:Oh, you may be too early. Perhaps you could try the other entrance?

(pause)
*I noted that he spoke well pronounced english*

Man

:It's via the exit beside the boutique.

(short pause)

Man

:The boutique beside the cinema.

(another short pause)

Man

:Boutique. Boutique next to the cinema.

(shorter pause)

Man

:Just after the boutique, is an exit to the staircase. There is a back entrance there.

(pause)

Man

:Boutique.

(short pause)
*I begin to sense the hint of iritation*

Man

:Boutique. Boutique!

(pause)
*with a near inaudible grunt*

Man

:Aiyah! The shop that sells clothes one lar... next to the cinema... Sell clothes one! Boo - tik ar!

(pause)
*in perfect chinaman tone -- snigger -- *

Man

:OK! So I'll see you there in a short while. Bye


The guy then slipped his mobile back into his pocket, then looked around inconspicuously (I think to see if anyone noticed his conversation).

Hehehe.... Short entertainment for an otherwise uneventful ride.

ROTFLOL!!!

Hilarious stuff, it kinda reminds me of some Malaysians who, when they're conversing with gweiloh, automatically lapse into a Westernised accent as if to make themselves better understood!

Malays and Chinese are the main culprits here; Indians not so much although, their hand/head actions are all still there lah...
