Debate About Restaurant Business Hours Births a #SiBodohKauDengarSini on Twitter

We get it, we’re all frustrated about the re-implementation of MCO all over again, but nobody was more frustrated than Twitter user, @yarafaee_, the author behind a cultural masterpiece.

A hungry Malaysian can get pretty sketchy, but one who is working In the food industry can themselves get sketchier when more than half of the whole country are coming in with their orders.

It started when a local @farhanazahan was complaining about how there were problems with his food delivery order. He had placed his order at 5pm as other options weren’t going to make his order in time. After that, he went on inputting about how ministers had not worry like him as they had servants to prepare food for them once they’re home.

This triggered a response from @puterirajawan who entered the conversation with her saying she don’t understand how people can make an issue out of the slightest mishap. She then said that @farhanazahan should instead order earlier as certain food delivery companies stop receiving orders at 7pm.

She ended the reply with saying that if you know that you are going home late, you’re better off ordering one day ahead and to leave your meal in the refrigerator.

Now this is where @yarafaee_ comes in with the infamous #sibodohkaudengarsini.

She started with the phrase before moving on to explaining that with most business hours go from 11am to 8pm and the whole of Malaysia is placing their orders between this time. She then said that the number of orders sometimes even make the order-taking machines and equipment go haywire. 

Instead of blaming it on the people to find a way, she suggested then @puterirajaawan took her comments to the government instead on how operating hours should be extended as the current ones are more likely to make the staff and cooks more stressed.

For two whole days, #SiBodohKauDengarSini was trending on Twitter and as of Tuesday night, has been tweeted 62,000 times.

Soon after, Malaysians everywhere were taking the hashtag out of context to use in their own and various ongoing situations.
