Tajuk plagiat Cik Presiden.
Hari ini sangat stressed. Telefon Mahadi untuk berkongsi a.k.a memaksa dia mendengar ketidakpuasan hati. Dia busy.
Ah, perlu menjerit. Call Kam untuk tujuan tersebut.
‘Nak menjerit ni!’ I started. She didn’t get it.
‘I’m so stressed out,’ I said. Now she get it.
‘I feel like crying’, ala-ala drama ayat aku.
‘Go on and cry’, Kam said.
‘Weh, I’m at the bus station at the mo lah’.
Lega sedikit lepas ‘menjerit’. Then I’ve realise I am darn hungry. No wonder the stress is lingering. Kena pergi makan.
But suddenly I remember me and ma friends talking about guys in stress and sorrow. We compared the difference in between typical guys’ and girls’ action.
It’s a simple one for girls. If they are in stress or sorrow, just lend them your ear. Agree with them. Then they feel better. Then they think of you as a good listener. Then they think you are nice and attracted to you for being a good listener. Oh, abaikan ayat last. (Kak Khalidah and Zeah, it’s the unwritten rule of environmental friendly eh).
Guys are more complicated when they are feeling vunerable as in feeling stress out or in sorrow. For typical kind of guy, first rule is to respect their ego. Offering help and kata-kata semangat is … perceived as weakness and against our ego. Boleh tak cakap camtu?
Okay, if that’s like making generalisation, let’s just refer it to myself then. But nice things like ‘are you alright’, ‘you are gonna be fine’, ‘okey ke?’, ‘ceritalah apa masalah’ are a bit annoying to be said when you see me in my moody/sorrow/stressed condition.
I don’t think it’s just me though. I got some guy friends who are acting this way as well. They just want to be left alone, or just shut up or don’t talk about them in that moment.
Once they are opened up, then it’s alright.
Or just belanja diorang makan. As makan adalah terapi stress.
P.S: Secret Recipe and KFC should work just fine for me, for future reference:P
