If there is anyone asked me this question… I will definitely say YES!
I hate them when they do not care of some one else around them! Yeah I know.. it is the basic right of everyone to do what they want to, but at the same time you can not blind your eyes that around you also exist someone else who probably do not the same with you! In values… in way of life… in everything!!!
I have read an article title “the crisis of liberalism” and I show the symptoms in Taiwan as liberal country! Aha… maybe I can find it anywhere… not only in this small country. But yeah… I do really dislike them, who only thinking about themselves no matter they are Taiwanese or not.
A simple case… it is a habit of Taiwanese to do everything in “brak-brak-brak” way. Well… I do not how to translate it to English. Hahaha… let me give you an example, in Indonesia manner, every parents will teach their children to do everything in proper ways and as much as possible do not create any noise in order to do not disturb your surrounding. But in Taiwan? THEY WON’T CARE OF IT. They will make any noise as much as possible.
I remember, when a friend visit me from Indonesia. The first time he saw the manner of this Taiwanese his question is “mereka lagi marah mbak?”. He3… and I answered, “Bukan itu emang style mereka. Banting sana-banting sini!”.
If you were in the canteen during the break time, you can enjoy this noise and unfriendly sound to your ears. BUT HOW IF THIS SITUATION HAPPEN IN YOUR ROOM? ALWAYS AND ALWAYS..
Well… this is actually the common situation in my room, since I have a Taiwanese roomate. When she did that “brak-brak” activity, usually I just trying to understand that habit and take my earphone and then listen to my favourite musics. And now I realize, it is not the way to solve it. Because they will never understand!
Different reaction was happen today, she entered the room and the first “braak…” happened when she took her bag on the table. Then the second “braak…” she put her slipper to the floor. Then the third “braak…” she opened and closed the wardrobe. And then the forth “braak…” it is me! Opened the desk drawer and took my earphone.
I do not know why I am so in-bad-mood today!
But I DO REALLY DISLIKE THAT MANNER!! T-T
