Think about it. Like lemmings, every mother’s son and daughter dutifully queued up for a minimum of an hour and a half to fill up a full tank of petrol before midnight when the price increase took effect. This caused massive traffic jams all over the city.
I know because I was on my way home after a meeting at Alexis in Bangsar. A drive that should have taken 20 minutes took an hour. I stopped to take photographs, shaking my head and marveling at Malaysians’ kiasu factor.
How much did you save by filling up a full tank? RM10? RM20? Was it worth the time, maneuvering, cursing and aggravation? You tell me.
Continuing this type of thinking, the price of rice recently increased too. Did these same people gorge themselves on rice too before the increase? Did they eat double helpings at every meal? Triple to save even more money? Sheesh!
Petroleum is an ingredient in Vaseline, KY Jelly and condoms too. Therefore the price of these products will increase too. With these people’s convoluted circular logic thinking process, they should buy more of these products before the price goes up. And electricity rates are increasing by 18% too, so switch off those lights.
There’s gonna be a whole lotta bonking going on tonight…..
