Miri: Sarawak Immigration Department director Datuk Robert Lian lamented yesterday that a senior immigration officer was unable to tell him where Uruguay is. "I had not even asked him yet about the capital (of Uruguay)", he said.
Fer Fook's Sake says: Fooking hell, ya. This is taking the piss la. But it also goes to show the kind of fooking Dungus who populate our civil service, even at senior levels. This is what happens when the "who you know rather than what you know" policy has been in place fer far too long.
I admit me is no genius especially with geography but that's one thing footie teaches you is some semblance of respect fer past World Cup winners. Yes, that's right, Uruguay may be home to less than 5 million people but it has won the World Cup not once but fooking twice (1930 & 1950 - the latter after beating mighty Brazil at the Maracana!!!). Respect! Hence they get to have two stars on their jerseys unlike England . . .
ps: Datuk Robert was speaking after the launching of the 5S practice (a concept associated with Japanese Kaizen work culture) which stands fer Sort, Set in Order, Shine, Standardise and Sustain. Me thinks they forgot to add another 'S' fer 'Sack' fooking senior Dungus who don't know his geography or his footie . . .
