Paid RM50/hr to stand in the queue...

It's Saturday again... This is a different Saturday as i got paid RM50/hr to stand in the queue.. You might be wondered why i got paid to stand in the queue... hehe

I got the news since last Thursday that there would be a 50% discount on all the traffic violation except the Ops Sikap, traffic lights, any accident violation. So, I contacted Kimmie to go to settle the summons on Saturday. We met in The Curve @ about 8:45am this morning, since the counter was not opened, we happily went for breakfast @ O'briens.



By the time, we came back from breakfast, the line has already formed. And more and more people came in... the line suddenly jammed up the escalator area. We were only moved just two to three steps within 1/2 hrs... There were one uncle whom standing ahead us was so pissed off with the system, he was the first to file a complaint to the police standing near the counter. Quite a number of people were taking advantage of just squeezing himself and herself into the line. This is what we called CUT QUEUE... but thanks to most of the Malaysian, they just pretended nothing happen and did not even raise the concern. The line getting pack and pack in front... no movement within 2 hrs... I was a little bit impatient and started the conversation with the two person standing behind me and in front of me. 





The line just moved an inch for about 1/2 - 1 hr... so you could imagine how slow the line was moving... why? Reason being was those moron were cutting queue... how they cut the queue? They were asking people whom were going to pay their summons to pay for them... I was so pissed because this were not fair to all of us in the line. So the uncle whom standing ahead of Kimmie and I went in front to stop this happening... The moron got stopped on paying immediately by the higher authority... but we were standing there for about 1 hours... just wasted... :-(

The best part was the whole morning, the traffic police team only open one counter for payment and two counters for checking... no information counter for people whom got lost and needed to seek for help... the lower rank staff was not trained and initiated to understand in order to solve the problem. NO ONE BOTHER... this was how the tax payer money spent. Are you sad about this? I'm very upset after this experience... 

Anyway, Kimmie and I finally managed to pay the summons at around 3:30pm as we started to line up on 9:30am... imagine how much time I spent to save RM$300... in short when i calculated the amount of saving on paying the summons today, i actually also paid RM50/hr to stand in the queue :->

My leg is so sore now thanks to the bad planning of the traffic police team, those moron that cut queue and those people who has so many summons... there were one paid about RM1000+ imagine how many this person have... :-p

I will ensure to a bid to what the limit in any highways... I don't want to go back to line up again :->

God! How much was your traffic summons anyway? An RM50 is really not worth the 6hrs+ wait, you know?

Zu: I have two traffic summons cost RM600. With the 6 hrs i have save RM300... but it you calculate hourly rate... the traffic counter team has paid me RM50/hr for standing in the queue for 6hrs... LoL It was an experience and learning that i have captured... a good experience for me to see how our inefficient our police force.

Jior~ Now I wonder if you're one of the people I curse on the road.

TZ said...

Khengsiong: This is a special case as there is a open ceremony on the traffic counter @ the curve... so they gave 50% off.

Zu: I got two speeding summons... you always curse people whom are speed in the highway? muhahaha... :-p
