toilets and tuition

I survived my first day of tuition!

The mother asked no questions and the child followed everything i said.

Granted that the child just scrapped through his CA1, i believe that he wants to study and will work hard!

And to think that i was so nervous that when i got to the block 20 minutes earlier than the stipulated timing, i didn't dare go up. Instead, i sat at the void deck, intending to wait at least 10 more minutes.

It was then that i felt my stomach cramping and i knew i had to find a toilet stat!

I didn't want to use the student's toilet because i felt that it would be weird, so i half-ran to the nearby petrol station, and luckily for me there was a toilet there.

I had a sense of foreboding when i saw the toilet paper vending machine thing outside the toilet, but ducked into the toilet after making sure no one was watching.

It's very paiseh you know, being spotted going into the toilet of a petrol station.

You know what's more paiseh than that?

Being spotted going into the toilet of a petrol station with the intention to shit.

And that's what happened.

My sense of foreboding came true. There wasn't any toilet paper on the roll!

I thought i could dart out of the toilet to dong in a 10-cent coin, and duck back in real quick without being spotted but noooo, a couple of malay dudes decided to walk right across my path.

At first they didn't see me, and i thought, "ok, maybe i can quietly take the toilet paper and go back in so they won't see me," but oh, the machine made a sound so loud that it made the hairs on the back of my neck stand.

I turned around and the malay dudes were already looking over and laughing at me!

I felt humiliation to the extreme ok!

Can you imagine me trying to look inconspicuous while waiting for the machine to spit out a meagre length of toilet paper?

I don't want you to think of me as an eavesdropper so I'll just say that I'm listening to music instead of my neighbour's maid flirting with my other neighbour's driver.


I like it when people think of me as an intellectual so I will list a bunch of intellectual-sounding books here, even those I don't plan to read.


Since I can't list my porn collection here, I'll just leave it this way until I can force myself to watch non-pornographic stuff, which may or may not happen.
