My heart could not stop thumping for the one whole minute. I could not believe my eyes and ears of this colleague of mine trying to win out of a negotiation of me paying her 25 cents which she thinks she has the full right to demand me to pay her back that miniscule amount. No offense but luckily I won the negotiation because it was simply lame duck.

The history started like this: She helped me to buy a book cost RM 24 and then later I bought her KFC chicken and a bun which totaled RM 6.25. So the rightful amount I owed is RM 17.75. Correct or not? Knowing I'm a lame person in mathemathics I used the calculator to calculate more than dozen times. No? I showed her the receipt of her chicken and bun and that was the total. Hello... it's printed on the receipt. No cheat. And I don't know why she mumbled "So you return me RM 18 la." I remembered double checking the receipt to see if I really owed her RM 18. NO. I don't. I just nod ...

I first thought of forgoing the 25 cents and pay her RM 18 but my guts is telling me NO WAY. The more I think about it I was very unhappy with her telling me to pay RM 18. Hey let's be honest here. The amount was NOT RM 18 to begin with.

I banked in the money to her account stating the RM 17.75 in her account. And she was, here via sms, trying to correct my mathematical calculation and telling me that her chicken and bun cost RM 6. I was not mad but find it pretty annoying and irritating. If you owe RM 0.25 cents, just admit it. And I don't give a damn about charity to a colleague who has 100 times better sales than me and came back from a company's trip for people who qualified in sales.

I did the calculation for my colleague via sms as to how I owed her RM 17.75 and she replied "OKlah." What's with the OK?

Unfortunately, she got the wrong opponent. Point is I'm a hyper calculative person. It's nothing to be proud of but hello ... what is the point of being calculative with me?! You don't scare me!

She probably rounded the 17.75 to RM 18. It's still a stupid thing to get so riled up about. You were in the right because you were just defending yourself (and your dignity). Why does she care so much about a stupid chicken bun and 25 cents?

Oh...and this is kind of a random/stupid question...but why do people say "la" after some words? I noticed it in video games too haha...is it a cultural thing?

I call myself undecided because I couldn't decide on a proper name xD

I'd probably do the same thing unless that person were a close friend or family member.

yeaa that'd be annoying if she never acknowledged it, especially if they aren't close to you
