A Nosy Parker I Am Not...

What would you do if you caught your neighbor's 13 year old son smoking in front of your house while lurking and hiding away from his parents?

Would you tell your neighbor, his parents?

Or would you just keep quiet and let it slide, hoping that your neighbor would eventually find out on their own?

If it were me, I'd want to know if Zareef was smoking behind my back (Nauzubillah, minta dijauhkan...). I would want to know if he was up to no good. I don't have eyes at the back of my head and I can't monitor him 24-7. So, if a neighbor were to come up and tell me that they saw Zareef doing certain vices, I would be relief. At least, I know my neighbors are a concerned lot and they care enough about my child to let me know anything that he's been up to, be it good or bad.

Well, that's just me. What about you?

err.. err.. tough situation.. tapi kalo saya, mungkin la saya akan cakap. tapi tgk jugakla. kalau saya a good relationship dengan neighbour saya tu dan kenal dia macam mana, then of course saya bagitau. kalau tak, maybe saya akan tegur anak dia aja.


i've decided to let it be BUT if i ever catch that ungrateful kid going at it again, akan ku heret dia by the ear to his parents.
