My plan was to go to library after class, search for whatever materials I will need for the assignment and get it done with. I happily drove to the library thinking that my job will be done, at least until Thursday where the real work comes in.
I pushed open the door, walked in, ignoring the guard sitting by the entrance like I always do. Then I heard him calling me.
Guard: Hello, hello.
Wait, why is he calling me? I’m not wearing a mini skirt.
Guard: Sudah tutup la. (The library is closed lah) He said with a don’t-you-know-that face. The 'lah' here justifies it.
Me: Har? Hari ni tutup pukul berapa? (What time does it close today?)
I looked at my watch and it was already 4:30. Curse you!!! So, now you celebrate Christmas? I didn’t know that. What, you have to go home early to exchange gifts? Have Christmas dinner?
God dammit everytime I go there it closes!!! Ok so maybe it was 5 out of 10 times. But who ever experiences the library closing on them half of the time!?
Now I only have Wednesday to settle it since Thursday morning is the meeting. Fark. And a Merry Christmas to you.
