The following Singapore ghost story has a bit of local 'Singlish' lingo. For the sake of non-Singaporean readers, I will try to do some translation as best as I can...I myself also 'blur' (stupid).
Read the story whether you like or don't like ghost story.....it will sure makes you
glued to your chair till the last sentence!
Prior to joining a new company, this guy A was working at boat quay area.
In those tall building offices like UOB (United Overseas Bank Building) and such. His office was quite high up the level at least 30 and above.
Normally he will have to stay back for OT (overtime) and in the evenings, all the lifts will be stopped and grounded due to security reasons. Whenever he wanted to leave, he will need to call the old security uncle (we respect an elderly persons by calling them Uncles and Unties.....but most of us don't like to be called uncles or unties cos then we appeared Old) to activate the lift from ground floor to his level. Then the uncle will send the lift up.
After sometime, he left the company and joined another place where his office also very high up in the building. Hence if he does OT, he also need to call uncle to send lift up. Then it came the day that he's working OT for the first time at the new place. He stayed back till 12 plus am.
When he's about to leave, he called the security uncle to send the lift up. After packing up he went to the lobby to wait for the lift.
He waited and waited. 10 mins passed, Lift not up. He waited for another 10 mins and call the security uncle. 'S' denotes security here.
A: Hello Uncle 'ah' (expression), have you send the lift up?
S: Yeah sent 'liao' (already).
A: No' leh' (expression) I been waiting for 20 mins liao leh
S: No 'meh' (expression)? okie okie (okay, okay) I send again.
Another 5 minutes went by. No lift came up. The guy got worried. He's
the last person to leave and there's no one around. He called the uncle on his handphone again.
A: Er... Uncle ah, you sure you sent the lift up?
S: Yeah I sent it up twice 'liao leh'.
A: But I saw the lifts all on the first floor 'leh'!
S: Aiyoh (Alas). Nevermind. I take the lift up and look for you.
Again, A waited. 5 minutes passed but none of the lift are moving.
Then suddenly, his hp ring. The uncle voice was on the other side of the line sounding very weird.
S: Where are you? I am here. But I cannot find you.
All this while A was staring at the display of the lifts. All at
level 1.... and the uncle is here.... shit something is not right.
A straight away 'chiong' (sprint) to the stairs and dashed down the building...
When he reached ground level, he ' chiong' to the security counter and he found out that....
He had actually called the old security uncle in the building of his ex-company and not the security uncle of his new office -_- He work till 'seow liao' (crazy already) and was 'damn blur' (damn scatterbrain).
Feeling very 'pai seh' (ashamed), he also never call back to explain to the security uncle from the building of his ex company.
'Blur cock' (something like Stupid Fellow) and poor uncle. He must be the one who actually freaked out going all the way up and saw no one there.... hahaha
Moral of the story - don't work till becoming like sotong (sotong is squid in malay and it give out some kind of black ink to make the water blurry to escape its predator. Hence calling a person 'Sotong' or 'Blur Like Sotong' means he is supid, scatterbrain, silly, crazy etc etc).... Destress by DANCING............ :-)
