Stupid ~ 笨蛋

Once upon a time, someone, L, was planning a business trip overseas in a few days’ time. As L was making preparations, I reminded him that he had to get some batteries for his camera to take photographs for the company’s archiving. Being a family-owned business, the family house was just next door. L immediately went, “Ok, I run next door to ask my mom to go get it!”

The next day, I had to check with L if he had actually gotten his batteries for the camera since it is my job to baby-sit him.

Without batting an eyelid, this big baby went,”Oh, tell me about it! I told my mom to go buy some batteries. My stupid mom didn’t even bother to check which kind of batteries my camera needs and bought the wrong kind. She is going to buy them later. Remind me again later this afternoon to check if she has finally managed to get it done!”

Now, the stupid mom in question is almost ignorant about technological gadgets and didn’t know how to check what kind of funny batteries the camera needs. Hence, I was totally pissed off by this big baby who had not just ordered his mom to do something he could have done so easily for himself but also shown such insolence and disrespect for his mom.

Stupid mom? Yeah, stupid indeed. She is stupid to have nurtured you protectively in her womb, suffering the uncomfortable effects of pregnancy. She is stupid to have nurse and took care of you when all you could do is to screech and howl for your milk. She is stupid to have tolerated your nonsense from back then till now, when one should have known better for a (then)twenty-plus year old.

When you are successful, it is because you are so talented, so brilliant, so fantastic, so capable.

When something failed, it is because “my stupid mom” didn’t perform up to task.

No wonder they said some traits run in the family, yeah?

从前,某人(在此简称L),正在计划几天后出国公干。我提醒他得要去买一些电池,以便拍照供公司备档案用途。由于是一家家族经营的生意,那家庭的住处就在办公室隔壁。L马上说:“好,我过去叫我妈妈去买!”

隔天,由于我再向L确定他是否买了电池,也不知道什么时候,照顾这位大娃娃也是我工作范围内的事情。

这位大娃娃居然眼也不眨一下地说:“你别提了!我要我妈妈去买电池。我的笨蛋妈妈连检查都没检查我的相机需要那一种电池就乱买!结果买错了。她稍后会再去买。下午再提醒我去看看她是否终于把事情办妥了!”

这位笨蛋妈妈对科技的东西一窍不通,也不知道如何检查相机是要怎么检查所需要买的电池。因此,这让我对这位大娃娃的没内涵也没品的行为很不是滋味。他自己能很容易办到的事情,居然还要找妈妈!

笨蛋妈妈?对,是好笨。她笨得为您保守十月怀胎之苦,好好用自己的身子来保护你。她笨得在你只能又哭又闹的时候,对你无微不至地照料。她笨得一直容忍你那不可一世的自我,一个二十几岁的人了,还不懂基本礼貌与尊重。

当你成功时,那是因为你是那么得才华、精明、了不起、能干。

当你失败时,那是因为“我的笨蛋妈妈”没把事情办妥。

难怪人家说一家人总是会有一些特征的,对吧?
