Just follow the 'law' ...

Sometimes I wonder are too we blindly follow the 'laws' until everything also have to follow unnecessarily. Well, I was sending my first ever P*slaju parcel after donkey years last Saturday morning. The P*st office was empty, thus I walked straight to the counter. However, the officer asked me to get a queue no. first. I was puzzled, there were no patrons around, thus why do I need a queue no. I thought queue no. are supposed to help us managed queues so that everything is in an orderly manner when there more than 1 patron. Feeling slightly irritating, I continued to stand at the counter (while the officer look down and did her work), and I asked my kid to get a no. Once he clicked,  I just pass the stuffs over to the officer before my kid passed me the ticket. The officer also didn't bother to verify the ticket and we just put it aside. Sigh ... I remember whenever I was at  TMTouch shops, the friendly officers just called me to the counter whenever it's empty.

OK, that's all about my rantings last Saturday morning, meanwhile it was a great Sunday after-all as Liverpool lost (opps.. no football talk here... hehehe) and we had a good time with our lunch. We were back at Lavender Bistro after a while. I simply miss my sandwiches and my little princess has also forgot about her strawberry shortcake which she alway ordered back then.

Mushroom soup for my kids

My kids also ordered a carbonara pasta, seems very wet.

A mushroom fried rice for my wifey

And, I had my favourite cheddar and ham ciabatta. 

And, not forgetting my Americano. :)

After lunch, we walked nearby to Baskin Robbins for some ice-cream. My little princess, who ordered a wrong ice-cream, took my sherbet orange instead while I gotta finished her 'cough medicine' like strawberry ice-cream. *shake head*

Enjoying 'my' sherbet orange.
Have a good week!

  2. Some places, they need to have a record of the number of customers served...and that is done via the print out from the number machine, maybe. Our poslaju office here, no number system...not that many customers, I guess.

    I like your missus' choice. The soup looks rich and thick but the pasta - not eaten, just look already jelak kind, so over-creamy.

    2. STP - Maybe la.. that's what I thought initially but I feel it's very inconvenient and sort of foolish. They can count the KPI based on the transactions too.

      hahaha.. Thanks for the compliment.

  4. well, as for me, even if the place is empty, I will also go and get a queue number, unless the staff there told me tak payah and ask me to go to the counter straight away..

    1. SK - Maybe it's a habit for you. I went to TmTouch and there's no such thing when it's empty. They just greeted me and asked me to go to the counter.

  7. I think poslaju asked to take nyumber coz of the QMS. end of the day they need to tally the number of customer etc and the time they use to process. if too slow then will kna report to HQ.So whn empty, you press the ticket they straight press the num then their end day QMS will improve timing lor.

    1. Kucing - If want to track KPI, can always track via transactions. What if the queue machine is down? So troublesome for customers.

  8. These people don't use their brain and got no common sense lah. Or maybe because since they have a queue number machine, so must tekan just to follow procedure. The Baskin Robbins strawberry ice-cream taste like medicine? That reminds me of my strawberry jelly :D Your girl is very pretty.

  11. I also experienced before.. no one inside but still took the number as requested.. maybe they want to know how many patrons per day gua...

  12. Haha. Strawberry ice cream that tasted like medicine? I never enjoy strawberry ice cream but I dont remember it tasted like medicine.

    I understand your irritation in poslaju. I experienced it before. Oh well. I guess they just have to be square and follow the rules. Cannot bend a bit.

  13. Yeah, it's puzzling sometimes.

    When they call for someone and no one comes to the counter, I'll go ahead and they don't ask for my (invalid) ticket stub either.

  14. I suppose they need it to count the customers numbers?

    Sometimes, just follow and save ourselves the sakit hati lor... People got SOP to follow also.
