This is just a short post of my anger towards society.
Oh how I wish I didn’t have to be nice to people… Oh how I wish I could be stone-hearted sometimes. When a friend invited me for a wedding I won’t attend, the least thing I could do is saying congratulations and wishing all the best.
And then there is always this reply of “Thank you. When is yours?”
And then there is always my polite reply of “No plan so far, dear. But very excited for you!”
And then there is always this…
“Oh, gue doakan cepetan ya…” (with a very sad tone if it’s a meet up)
In English, it’ll be like “Oh, I’ll pray for you. Hope you’ll get there soon…”
WHAT IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE? I have to pray to be married? GEE! If I wanted to get married, I just need to go to ROM (Registry of Marriage), bring two friends as witnesses and pay freaking $28!
I reaaalllyy hate those people who perceive marriage as an achievement. IT’S NOT! Marriage is a choice! And you didn’t make that choice just because you turned some age or because your rich parents asked you to and pay for your wedding. GEE! You make that choice because you love each other and committed for the rest of your life! And guess what, some people need years of considering for that kind of commitment!
Since when marriage is achievement?! Marriage is a phase of life!!! It’s the same like getting into college, being a freelancer, or getting surgery for wisdom tooth. It’s a phase, people! NOT EVERYONE MUST TAKE THAT PHASE! Sometimes we just want to skip or postpone it.
Finding a cure for cancer is an achievement! Win a noble prize is achievement! Making a best-seller book is achievement!!!
SO WHY DON’T YOU PRAY FOR ME TO MAKE A BEST SELLER BOOK OR EVEN FIND A CANCER CURE?! I don’t need you to pray for me to get married!
Arrghh I hate it when people ask me, “what’s wrong?” as if not planning to get married is a sin!!! BECAUSE I’M JUST NOT YET, YOU IDIOTS! Nothing is wrong with that!
I DON’T WANT TO GET MARRIED FAST, I WANT TO GET MARRIED RIGHT!!!
So, in Singlish, let me give you this: “JUST GO DIE AR YOU!”
P.S Nope, this post is not about being asked “kapan kawin.” I get used with that. This is about the latest annoyance of “gue doakan biar cepet kawin.”
