scowl - To wrinkle or contract the brow as an expression of anger or disapproval.

There's this man i see in the next building where i used to work. Sometimes i see him in the carpark.. zooming very fast up or down (with a ugly scowl on his face)... sometimes i see him in the lift (still with a scowl)... i don't even dare to smile at him.

He sells Broadband services. Few years ago, he came by to our office to offer us his services. We already had one running, so we said no. A few more years down the road... his scowl got worse. He was never with a smile. Man against the World. He is not that old, but he has a head full of greys. Maybe he have a lot of problems. But always with a scowl.

Once my friend met him in the same lift. My friend pressed the wrong number and she pressed another number to another floor. This got the man barking at her... DON'T PLAY AND SIMPLY PRESS... hahhahahaha.... my friend turned into a mouse and quietly backtracked into the corner.

That was a bad experience for her. Each time she sees him in the lift.. she won't even dare go in. Me? If he shouted at me, i would just probably play dumb too. No need to waste time messing with angry people.

Why do people become meanies? Why do they bully lesser beings? Why do they wear an ugly scowl in the mornings when they wake up? Why don't they wear a smile and make the day better.

Why do people have to be so negative. And complain about everything the world has to offer. It is a blessing to be able to wake up again in the morning. It is a blessing to be able to live one more day. Give praise when praise is due. Give a pat on the back of a worker if he/she has done good. Give a smile to a stranger, a smile is very contagious, they just pass on to the next.. and next person.

It could be pressures of life. Some hard knocks.. more knocks than normal. Bad patches. But that does not give them the licence to be mean.

Ahh... i am going back to the office next week. Hopefully i meet the Angry Broadband Man (we named him that after seeing him with that scowl all the time). I would probably smile at him this time. Maybe he'll smile back. I wouldn't know.

When you wake up in the morning, we always do have a choice. Either we wear a smile or a scowl. Why choose a scowl if you have a smile.

Don't be the Angry Broadband Man. Be happy... our time on earth is not that long.

All I can say it probably the "Angry Broadband Man" born with such face? You will never know, probably deep down inside him is another different person that does not reflect on his face.

I agree with you about choosing to be happy. Be it happy or sad the days still go by. Why not choose to be happy and live our life :D

Try and smile or talk to the "Angry Broadband Man", bark back if only he barks LOL!

Anny said...

mebbe.. hehehe.. but i think not la.. he has a nice face if he smiles.. mebbe he is probably just troubled all the time.. hence the scowl.

am sure he is a very different person inside.

err.. if i bark back.. his bite might be mightier than my bark! hehe

Ken said...

LOL then bring your dog along...when he wants to bite, ask your dogs to bite him :D

Anny said...

Haha, "Angry Broadband Man" such a vicious name. lol :D

I met this type of broadband man b4, they been to my house plenty of time due to the bad connection and are always with that face expression. Kinda mood-less when telling him what went wrong. Makes me felt like as if it's my fault..lol

Well, I find it hillarious actually cause they tend to look like goblins. lol :D Haha, I pour him an Ice water to cool him off later.. :) and yea, he did smile a little..so i agree they somehow are good in the inside. :D

BTW, where have you been after the encounter with the angry broadband man? Nv heard from you since then. Please don't tell me u got kidnap by the angry broadband man?

yoon see said...

No complaint?! May be he has too much problem and don’t know how to voice out. Or he could be weary…..due to daily stress & workload…..
One needs a good channel to release his/ her stress. Communication is the bridge for friendship.
God gives us not just love but eternal life.

I do love your blog too Anny.
I try to drop by all blogs to comment, doing my best but sometimes can’t just please everyone. Hope you understand.

Anny said...
