- “Can somebody please let my girl use the toilet first?” pleaded a mother. Everyone turned to stare. I was waaayyy behind so letting her have my spot will do no good. “Please? She really cannot tahan already!” A kind soul let the little girl use the loo. It was a queue of movie goers who have crossed their legs for 2 hours – I can understand they were reluctant to give in!
- Suvarnabhumi Airport – “Mister, Miss, this way please” and she ushers us to the immigration lane designated for handicapped, elderly, pregnant and families with children.
- Changi Airport – I traveled alone with my boy. The queue was long at the immigration. It took the officer at the empty lane 10 minutes before she walked up to me and ushered me to the counter to process my passport.
- Kuala Lumpur International Airport – there is no designated lane unless you are a person of status. Ptui! An Arabian man walks up to an empty counter that processes Malaysian passports. The immigration officer tells him that he has to queue at the foreign passport lane, which looked like it would clear in a day or so. He explains to the officer that he has 5 small children. The officer said ‘if I let you through, then other people will get angry with me!’. There was no reasoning with this dimwit. The man and his family stood back in the foreign passport queue.
