做莫用人家的东西? Why use other people's stuff?


一切从买了间二手屋开始。啊不,是间屋主留下很多家具的二手屋。

包括电器,沙发,杯子,汤匙,橱柜和一张条件依然非常好的超大号的双人床垫(没有下陷,没有污迹,没有脏印,没有异味-当然我没有像小狗那样去嗅那床垫,不过近距离时,我没有感觉不妥)

当很多人知道我打算接收前屋主的杯子,汤匙,和床褥时,有趣的事情发生了。

60-70年代生,没有含着金钥匙出世,稍微"挨过"打拼过,但现在都有一番成就或日子算安稳的朋友的反应如下:

本尊:我省很多叻,那床垫最少千多块以上的。
60-70年代生友人:你确定用那床褥啊?嘿嘿,没异味??
本尊:没有喔,而且我买了床垫保护层,加上去就好咯。
60-70年代生友人:哎呀,那很好啊,你"拾到"啦。。。
80年代生的同事,刚巧都稍微有点家底,或不必扛家,享受生活的他们的反应如下:

80年代生同事aiyerrr, 做么要用人家的东西??!!买过啦!(一副厌恶不肖的样子)
本尊:那么新,丢不下手叻,而且我买了床垫保护层,加上去就好咯。
80年代生同事tsk, 你不觉得很脏的咩?不噁心? 给人家啦!捐出去然后买过啦!不要用人家用过的啦aiyerrr...

被第一轮袭击时我还顶着那么一点耐性企图让他们明白因由,不过在不同的时间经过几个回合的交手后,我终于明白根本是浪费气力,忍不住还击:

1)噁心?肮脏?那你们旅行睡酒店时又是什么?几百个人睡过,"搞过",不是更噁心?你们都带自己的床垫去旅行的?

2)那你们在外面餐厅用餐时不噁心?你又怎么知道人家有把餐具都洗干净?分分种几百个人用过,不是更肮脏?

3)自己觉得噁心的东西就"捐"出去做慈善?拜托,人家是不幸,但不是乞丐,难怪先进国都把些落后的东西丢到发展中国家,就是你们这种种心态啊(ok这句还没说出口)

不过依然是同一个反应:不同嘛,yiyerr

Yiiyerrrr....yii 什么屁?!!)

同样的事情在两个(错,是三个)不同年代的人的反应竟然是那么的南辕北撤。一方让我看到尊重和体谅,一方让我看到时下年轻人的意气风发,就是觉得自己是对的,别人的意愿根本不是什么。

这应该就是所谓的代沟吧?还是,纯粹是贫与富的环境洗礼下所产生的态度?

无论如何,八字辈的好命人,如果你不小心看到这篇文章而觉得不忿的,请速撤离,也莫留言,因为本小姐没兴趣听。

对,我超级霸道,因为,这里是我部落格,我的地头,你不能接受但你也无权过问,明白了吗?

Everything starts from a second hand house. Oh correction, a fully furnish second hand house.

Including electrical items, sofa, cups, bowl, wardrobe and a very good condition king size mattress (no subsidence, no dirt, no saliva or other spooky marks and neither it is smelly, well of course I didn't smell it like a doggy but at least I don't smell anything in close distance)

And so, when people get to know that I'm going to "inherited" the cups, spoons, and mattress of the previous owner, something interesting happened.

60-70 era born friends, those who were not born in a rich family, who for once work hard to fight for a better living and are now having a better/more settle lifestyle, reacted as below:

Myself: eh I jimat a lot leh, the mattress at least need thousand over leh.
60-70 era born friends: eh you sure you wanna use the mattress ah? Hehe, no strange smell?
Myself: no woh, somemore I bought a mattress protector, thick one, put on top then settle lo.
60-70 era born friends: like that ok la good, save a lot...

However, those colleagues who born in the 80's, who coincidently from a good condition family background (which generally we can't quote them "the poor"), not the bread winner of home, and already have the capability & freedom to start enjoy life response as below:


The 80's colleague: Aiyerrr, why use other people's stuff? Buy a new one la! (showing disgust face)
Myself: so new, can't persuade myself to throw it leh (here refers to the mattress). Somemore I bought a new mattress protector, put on top settle la.
The 80's colleague: tsk, aiyerrr, don't you feel that it's very dirty meh?? Not Disgusting meh? Give to other people, or donate out and buy a new one la! Don't use other people's stuff la, aiyerrr

During the first round attack I still patiently explain & try them make them understand why, but unfortunately after few rounds of attacks from diff batch of 80's in different timeline, I come to understand that it’s just waste of time, and thus I shoot back:

1) Disgusting? Dirty? Then what happen to you guys when u all go travel? Hundreds of people slept on the bed & even "hanky lanky" there, isn't it evn more disgusting? So you all bring your own mattress to travel?

2) And what happen when you guys having meal at the restaurant?? How many people put the same spoon that you use in your mouth before?? How sure are you that they washed it thoroughly & wash it clean? Isn't it felt more dirtier??

3) things that you felt disgusting you give to others or 'donate' out? Hello, people are just less fortunate, they are not a worthless beggar ok? No wonder the developed country likes to throw the old technology stuff to the developing country, this is the mentality huh?? (ok this one I haven't say it out)

Still, same reaction: it's diff mah, yiyerr

Yiyerr (Yii my ass meh?!)

Same situation but the reaction from the 2 (correction, 3) generation are poles apart. One demonstrate respect and understanding, another shows such an high-spirit that see no others but own feeling & thinking, what's in your mind doesn't really matter to them.

Is this what people called generation gap? Or solely the attitude that cultivated from the poor & the rich family background?

ANYWAY, to those fortunate 80's, if you so happens to see this post by chance and feel no good, I would advise you to leave immediately & don't leave a comment ok? Coz I'm not interested to see neither debate.

Yeap, this is me, overbearing and 'lan si', as here is my blog, my place, even if you don't like it, somehow you've no right to question it, understand?

写到太好了,要给你一个赞,咋们是同道中人 !

Casendra said...

Shino,所以你才会‘帮趁’我的blog 嘛。。。哈哈哈哈。。。

Shino Lim said...

是啊是啊! 能用的就用罗~ 
自己不要用的也不好意思送给人。
好像我有些不能穿的衣服,都是新的或不合穿的才给人。 那些真的很旧的就拿去丢好了。

酒店不同嘛, 酒店只是短暫的.. 自己的家自己的房間, 怎麼都好, 我是希望有一張嶄新的床囉~~ sorry, 我是70後的..

Casendra said...

Haha, SK, 如果那张床和新的一样,还是坚持买新的?

其实也没什么,反正是自己的意愿,还好你没在这里yii yeerrr 咯。。。哈哈哈哈。。。

We live and move on with life with what we can afford. I suppose we should not care about what others feel or say because end of the day, its our money and our right to spend on what we prefer.

RealGunners said...

I would prefer my own bed for my home, I would not want a bed that is left behind by the previous tenant. But... I won't go and yiyerrrr lah... different people different preference mah...

You are right lah, the 80's generation got alot of a$$holes that do not understand what is democracy, only want people to accept what they say...

Casendra said...

Nava, no worry I actually dont really care but just need to release some tension here. hahaha

RealGunners, seems you have some 'unfornate' events with the 80's as well. hahahahahaha

我也是很節儉的,球鞋底掀開,能黏就黏。哈

覺得會這樣子是因為我以前環境不好,父母親生7個小孩沒有太多物質生活,吃飽就偷笑了

Casendra said...

Fionn, later your hubby jealous. hahahaha

子平,你并不孤单,因为我也是会黏鞋底的人!哈哈哈。。。是咯,可能以前家困,所以现在都很珍惜每一样东西,有时挥霍一下都会内疚。哈哈哈。。。算啦,我们现在都很好,不是吗?:)

睡得自在开心,活得自足满足。何必去在意世俗的眼光。加油,Casendra

看來“本尊”當時氣還真難下,如果你來問我,我會這樣答你,不要打我~~

那張床是誰睡過的?建議先搬到烈日下曬幾個鐘,費事睡到身痕,然後噴些那種噴沙發床褥專用的水,也香一點。。。心理作用少一點,哈哈。

Casendra said...

Yee, 你想到的我当然也想到啊!哈哈哈。。。我还不至于省到那个地步啦 :P 前屋主留下的,干净没异味,不过还是会清理一下,而且我有加 mattress protector 在上面啦。哈哈。。。
