My friend’s boyfriend got really bombarded by her mom.
He had sent her a SMS near midnight in Malay:
“anakmu ketinggalan dalam kereta kawan’
which translated into English means “your child has been left in a friend’s car’
He had missed out the word ‘hand phone’ in his sleepiness.
Now none of the parties involved normally speak Malay. Somehow the boyfriend just decided to be cute that night by texting in bad Malay.
The mom didn’t think much of it at first being tired. She called and texted her daughter, but obviously could not get through as the phone was left in her friend’s car. The mom went to sleep not thinking much of it.
When she woke up early in the morning and saw that her daughter had not replied or called back, she started becoming concerned. She tried calling the boyfriend’s handphone, but the boyfriend thought it was his phone’s alarm (it was set to silent and to vibrate only) and didn’t bother to get it.
So the mom really freaked out as she thought her daughter had been kidnapped by some Malay speaking person.The mom proceeded to call the cops and all her daughter’s KL friends…
She finally got through to the boyfriend’s handphone after her 4th attempt…
What a SCOLDING he got 😀
