The young lady was asking the staff something.
Suddenly she raised her voice and said, "I know. I'm asking why the registered document was not delivered to my office. The postman did not come."
The man then chipped in, "What is your name?"
The staff showed her name tag to him while telling him.
The couple repeated the same problem about not receiving the document which was sent by registered mail.
The staff advised them to call 1625 and leave a message so that an investigation could be carried out.
The man at the next counter raised his voice suddenly, "Are you all the post office employees? Or is this a franchise?"
The staff answered, "No more franchise. Now are all under the company."
The man then said, "If I were you, I would take up the case and feedback to the management that this particular postman is not doing his job instead of asking customer to call and leave a message."
"You don't need me to teach you how to do your job," he continued.
"I did not come here for nothing," he said.
He then pointed his finger at the document which was supposed to be delivered to him and asked the staff, "Do you know what is this? My company makes money out of this document."
The staff just stood there is listen without replying.
While the man has every right to be angry over the lapse of service, why did he not arrange for courier service if the document is so valuable instead of having the sender paid $3 to send by registered mail?

The man then stood at the corner of the door just next to the reserved seat with his back leaning against the glass partition.
When he was reaching his destination, he turned around and told the lady, "Someone has given up her seat to my daughter. But it's ok. I am alighting now."
The lady was taken aback and did not know how to react.
She looked around to see if anyone is staring at her.

He then said rudely in English, "Buy already quickly go off. Still stand here talking."
The two elderlies rebutted him in Hokkien, "We buy already you think we will still stand here. You don't know how to see the uncle hasn't weigh and clean the fishes for us. We are not wood."

A room has three lightbulbs.
Outside the room are three switches that are all in the off position.
You cannot see the lightbulbs from the witches.
The lightbulbs are in a room with no windows behind a solid door that leaks no light around it.
How can you determine which switch turns on which lightbulb?
You can only open the door once, and once you open the door, you cannot change the position of any of the switches.
They are ordinary lightbulbs and you are completely by yourself.
How can you do it?

Without damaging either the top of the truck or the overpass in any way, how can he get his truck unstuck all by himself so he can drive away?
