A bad father and a good son

I patronized a supermarket yesterday for my weekly ration restock, I parked the trolley behind me when I squatted down to check facial lotions on the rack. There were no other patrons on the row when I parked the trolley

A young Malay man aged 20 year over with a daughter and a son walking to my direction. I believe the trolley is slightly blocking his way, he has intentionally pushed the trolley to the main aisle which is obstructing others.

I do not want to make noise for such a trivial matter, I just kept quiet and observed them.

His 4-5 year daughter trailing behind him also mimicked her father, pushed the trolley further away from me. Then his 7-8 year son walking behind the little girl, pushed the trolley back to my direction at his own initiative.

The philosophy is that an adult man is showing a bad example to his children. The small boy is more civil conscious and qualified than the father as a parental role model. The father should be ashamed for his behavior.

The small boy proves this Malay proverb, “bapa borek, anak rintik” is not always true.

Father smokes, son will follow.
Father watches porn DVD, son will follow.

Father have extra-marital affair in hotel, son will surely follow, especailly the mother has endorsed it.
