Here’s an interesting analogy or story (depending on whether you get it or not) as we read about the latest court ruling that once again placed Malaysia above all else as the world’s laughing stock again. No idea what I’m talking about? You can read more about them here and here.
A man came home from work and his children ran to him and called out ‘Father! Father!’.
His neighbor got very upset and said to him, “Can you please tell your children not to call you ‘Father’?”
The man asked, “Why?”
The neighbor retorted, “Because my children call me ‘Father’ too. They might get confused and mistake you to be their father.”
Then the man told his neighbor, “Are you not ashamed to say that your children do not know who is their ‘Father’? So you are saying by using the word ‘Father’ , your children will call me ayah too without knowing who their father is?”
The neighbor said “Yes, only my children can use the word ‘Father’.”
The man was speechless.
So what do you think? Ashamed? Confused? Speechless?
