Dungus in High Places

Spotted this article in yesterday's papers:

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 . . .

My friend, if you think that's bad, just ask around general knowledge Qs man ... no need to talk about gomen servants - we all know they bought their degrees via the NEP and quota system.

You'd have had to ACTUALLY study at some point in your life to know anything. You know what I mean?

*grin* please do visit me if I end up in Kamunting at some stage of my life :)) but bloody hell what the fook is wrong with these people do they have brains or too much cow finally got to them??

homer simpson actually made fun of this country when he first came across Uruguay on a desk globe. U...Are...Gay.

Incompetent indeed, a word synonymous with a good majority of government departments. Has anyone been to a department and been told to come back another day as the one and only truly important staff member was on leave and no one else could fill in? What happens then if this individual died? Work with be back logged until the can groom a replacement? Have they not taken into consideration that as some point, they may have to fill in for one another? Perhaps it's just pure laziness.

nickm: Well fooking said lar . . .

azer: You have a very pertinent point there.

anita: welcome to Fer Fook's Sake & hope to see you around here more often. It would appear that the main criteria fer the civil service these days is stupidity & greed . . . mirroring the BN's wonderful attitude all these years.

kerp: Yup, saw that Homer pix. Widely circul;ated after Oz beat em in the play offs in the last world cup . . .

becky: That's just the tip of the fooking iceberg innit?

Agree wholeheartedly. Its come to a point where the complacency and laziness evident in 'gomen' and 'newly privatised' sectors have been so consistent, its the expected norm.

Every time I walk into ANY government dept, everything from the generic FM shit being played over the PA, to the poor lighting, the stale stench of fried food thats been left out too long and the glazed-over look on the faces of its employees whose enthusiasm and speed rivals that of livestock being faced with impending slow death - is really the closest thing to voluntary lobotomy.

"Take your number to Counter D4 please and fill up the form first; The Grim Reaper is having his post breakfast snack."

Actually the only gomen dept that has been so efficient in carrying out its duties would be the Income Tax and Revenue Dept. Then again, no surprise there innit?

'Soft spoken intellect and logic are pointless in an arena of table-thumping bullies interested only in more power and greed'

Just for taking the mickey out of this, the capital of Uruguay is Montevideo, no?

Korek...korek....korek!

Here's an answer? Ulan Bator. Anyone want to guess what the question is other than the capital city of Mongolia? tsk...tsk...tsk

anfield devotee said...

premo: Ramones 'Teenage Lobotomy' crossed with Blue Oyster Cult's '(Don't Fear) the Reaper = govt servant?

albertus: He he . . . very naughty are you. Ulan Bator is where a certain model hailed from . . .

akuani said...

Actually FFS *grin* I've been here a lot just reading and keeping my comments to myself

But sometimes this all *whoosh* above my head - there's always avenue for a spin off dontcha think? :))

As for the lines of comm open purely on the basis of another pot of pandi curry coming my way - not really :)

old is gold they say, not one for cliche's but me thinks there's a huge void between the ears of the generation after us - too much of the KBSR/M non-education is what I'm blaming eheh *better NOT let my kid sis see this*

Anba said...

Montevideo...hahaha
See this Government Servant knows the Capital of Uruguay...
Atleast im a living proof that not all Gomen Servants are cross between Teenage Lobotomy + Don't Fear The Reaper
I think im more of
Slayer's " Angel of Death" + Metallica's " The Thing that shouln't be a Gomen Servant"....
Hidup Pak Lah!!!....Sure kena Screw one fer this...

senorita.. said...

KBSR/KBSM/KBKK are all bullcraps...

and yes,gov. departments have one of the lousiest front desk service.. my take is,if u're not to at least offer a smile,pls look for jobs where u're not gonna show ur face to the public.

and this post reminds me,i once asked a fren's fren who is from Norway, "So how is the US?" i thot Norway's in US... i knw,it's fuckin embarassing... =/

anfield devotee said...

anita: who you calling old!?!! Pls don't lump me together with you geriatirics!!! He he

anba: Not to worry, we know you are only joking . . . or are you?

senorita: A career in civil service beckons . . .

It's no surprise how slow these people are.

Anyway, another true story…I got summoned for having an expired Driving license not too long ago. They give you 2 months to pay before they charge you more for late payment. Being a good citizen, I went to JPJ about a month after the offence...guess what… it’s not in the records. I went back there again 2 weeks later, and guess what… it’s still not in their records. WTF. I am now just 2 weeks away before the deadline expires and I asked the counter lady when will it be in coz I don’t want to be fined extra for their incompetence… and they told me not to worry… These things take about 2 months before they show up on their system. True enough.. on the last date to pay I visit JPJ again… and its finally in. What a bunch of wankers. Wonder who the 2 month deadline is really for.

Hi there. AD, b4 u ask me who I m, I m yr puchong drinking buddy. After much prompting fm you, decided to create another ac so that i can join your interesting chats!

To the rest, HELLO! Liverpool fan here too!

On the topic of govt servants, I whole-heartedly agree w all comments mentioned. But i m one to give credit where it is due. The EPF along the fed highway is one. They have excellent staff there who are courteous, knowledgeable, friendly and efficient. I went in there for to withdraw savings for my first house purchase. It was done in 15mins! They promised money would be in my bank account in 15 days but it was in my ac in 4 days! Certainly a very rare occurence! Also had very good service at the T2 Subang immigration office.

Azer,
Just know where Colombia and Venezuela is. The women are gorgeous! For hot women, Brazil!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Kerp,

Homer the man!!!

theALBERTUS said...

Oi! All these talk about South American women is very racist! What about Mongolian women? Ok what? If our u know who got good taste surely us Malaysians know what good taste Mongolian women are.

Korek!.....korek!.....korek!

I heard somewhere that Brazilian women outnumber the men 7:1. Wow! Anyone knows the Brazilian embassy. Oh ya speaking about South Americans, I met this Malaysian chinese due with colombian wife.

Man....the colombian wife was hot! The young daughter is cute. Imagine, Malaysian Chinese and Colombian Caucasion mix. Ini mulatto ker creole ker...or teh tarik mix kau kau! She's going to be a looker someday. Marion Caunter...eat ur heart out!
