Lazy days flow by

Kudos to the Mat Rempits!!!

Posted on: January 8, 2008

The other day when I was mmat in actioninding my own business driving on a straight stretch of highway, sudden from out of no-where, two Evel Knievel wannabes zoomed pass me with one wheel in the air, the classic pose and signature antics of the Mat Rempits. I was shaken but thanks to my 30 yrs experience in driving, I recovered my composure and blare my horn in a reflex action.  Now in good ol’ Malaysia, a horn is something you dont use on another road user, its for scaring the dogs and cats off the driveway, and calling your wife to hurry up because you’re late. On another road user, its just like telling him to piss off. Which was why the pillion riding daredevil gave me the middle finger as they zipped off. They were probably late for the glue smelling session with their cronies, which explained why they didnt stop me to give me a closer look at his offending finger.

I thought the Mat Rempit phenomenon was a passing fad and soon everything should cool down. How wrong I was that afternoon. I believe some of you may have the misfortune of encountering these highway hoodlums and even killed one or two running over them in an accident. But the sad state of affair of this issue is that Mat Rempits are here to stay, whether you like it or not. Unless the government come ban motor bikes outright, which is impossible as trying to ban Malaysian eating nasi lemak because is bad for your health. So we are left with no choice but to be unwilling spectators of these unlicenced stuntmen.

But couldnt we do something? Couldnt the govt do something? Like getting them to do their act in a no-hold-barred race in the Sepang Circuit, so that they can maim themselves (and live to regret for the rest of their miserable lives), or get some Hollywood Stuntmen Guild to organise a recruitment drive here and exile them off to sunny California. This will also increase the Gross National Produce of Malaysia. Which is much better than enrolling them as UMNO members, for what do these hell rider know about back-stabbing, blatant lying and two-timing their spouses (at least not yet).
