Subtitle: Possibly the most confusing blog-post ever.
Friend: Wait, so…what's happening?
We're in a car park.
It's Saturday night and there are some complicated dinner plans.
6 adults, 2 kids, 4 cars.
It would make sense to car-pool.
But one friend, and I shall begin numbering people at this point, wants to go straight home afterwards.
But he doesn't know the way to the restaurant.
Friend 2: How?
Friend 3: You guys just follow our car.
This was greeted with a confused silence.
Because Friend 3 already has a full car.
So how to follow?
Suggestion silently ignored.
Friend: [to me] So…should we follow your car?
Friend 4 is taking you home.
Go with Friend 4.
Friend 4: [to me] So you'll follow us?
Then we all have to come back here later to get my car.
Friend 4: Err…but I don't know the way to the restaurant either…
Why is this confusing?!
[the uphill struggle...]
As we all stood there like idiots, Friend 3 took decisive action and drove away.
Me: Ok it's like this. We all drive separately and seeing as I'm the only person left who knows the way…you all follow my car.
Friend 2: o.O?
Friend 4: o.O?
Then it suddenly clicked.
Me: English-follow!! You English-follow my car with your car!! Not Malaysian-follow, get in my car.
All: Ooooohhhhhhh!!!! Ok.
