Ahmad Abdul Abdullah is a very forgetful and absent-minded man. He always forgets where he puts things and also never remembers to bring essential items like his IC with him.
Being quite an elderly man, his situation is quite understandable. He is out of date with today’s society and a little bit behind because of his dislike of reading.
One day, Ahmad woke up and decided to go to the bank. He used to be a government employee and he wanted to withdraw a little bit of his pension money.
As soon as he reached the bank he quickly filled up the withdrawal form and proceeded to the counter. When his number was called, he went up and approached the teller.
“Assalamualaikum pakcik. Can I have your IC please? We need to verify your identity” asked the teller.
Ahmad reached for his back pocket. He was expecting to find his wallet. Instead, all he found was his empty back pocket. He must have left it at home.
“I’m sorry. I seem to have forgotten my IC. But it’s okay. I assure you I am who I say I am,” smiled Ahmad.
“I’m sorry pakcik. Unfortunately, it doesn’t work that way. I have to insist on your IC to approve the withdrawal. Maybe you can come back tomorrow.”
Ahmad sighed and nodded. The teller looked at him with an apologetic look. There was nothing he could do and so he left the bank dejectedly.
A week later, after he had finally managed to withdraw some of his pension money, Ahmad decided to go on a short holiday to the north.
He thought it would be exciting if he took an overnight sleeper berth train. So he went to the train station with his bag and proceeded to the ticket counter. [Click to read the full article at The Malaysian Insider]
