The radiation dose
Im in a red hat thinking style now. Emotional thinking.
This early morning, second compound for this semester. The first one is regarding this matter.
First: Offence number 33, failure to register at Mahallah. I was informed that we doesn't need to register for the new semester as they already registered us, the participants for I-Quest + taaruf induction course, which were done before the new academic session starts.
The mahallah office already had our names, and I kept wondering why they missed us, siap issued compound lagi. And I still remember, when I have my key for practical session, the staff did promise me to automatically register us for new semester. Thus, siapa yang bersalah untuk kes ini sebenarnya..??
I was quite bengang, kind of ignore and my friends yang did the appeal letter for me. Heh, thanks friends. Yet still we have to pay, a quite large amount for something which is not our fault at all.
Second: Offence number 34, absent from mahallah after 12 midnite. For the whole one year staying in IIUM, this is not my first time sending friends to the bus terminal after midnight. For at least we will spend 35 minutes outside. 20 minutes pergi balik, 15 minutes waiting for the bus (takkan nak biar kawan perempuan tunggu bus sorang2 tengah malam). For at least.
But this time, when we reached the main entrance, the compound notice already been issued, means already written. Hence, it cannot be cancelled.
"Kalau antar kawan pergi terminal, 15 minit je boleh keluar." Said the 'Kakak' at the security post when we went back to collect our matric cards at the security post.
"Mintak maaf akak, kami tak pernah tahu wujud rule tu. Kalau kami tahu, mesti kami dah balik cepat." I replied.
"Lagipun guard sebelum kitorang keluar tak cakap apa-apa pun." My friend added up. The problem is, we never had this kind of problem before.
"Owh die baru, tatau sangat." Said the 'kakak'. I thought I already see that 'abang' since the previous academic session, maybe I'm wrong.
I explained something, and rose scarlet did the same. The 'kakak' said it was on my friend's own risk for having the journey late at night. And also our fault for not knowing the so called '15 minutes rule'. Well, Im not that cruel.
But maybe she was kind of regret for issuing the compound before knowing our reasons. I guess so.
Again, given a compound for an offence which is not our fault.
It was at least, their mistake jugak:
1) Did not centralize all security guards regarding the rule which is NOT stated in the list of offences.
2) Did not remind the students everytime before they go out sending friend to the bus terminal as the rule is NOT stated in the list of offences.
3) Assuming all students did know the rule which is NOT stated in the list of offences.
"Mintak maaf akak, salah saya sebab tak tahu..."After setahun lebih baru tahu, great~!
And my mistake sebab:
1) too worried about my friend who is alone, and did wait until she is safe in the bus.
"Takpe, boleh buat rayuan bagi kurang, tapi dalam 14 hari lah." Said the 'akak' with guilty face.
"Takpelah akak, kami bayar jelah." I replied.
I don't care about the amount of money, but I am really sad on how they deal and on how they consider+judge something.
I did remember what my Deputy Dean had said to all of us. "You disobey the rule, they can always issued compund to you. Yes you can pay, but that indicates your intellect only worth RM50."
Owh, my intellect actually only worth RM50.
Anyone of you did know about the so-called 15 minutes rule...???
*picture above is my fellow classmate dealing with one of the conventional x-ray machines during our practical session. To be emo tonite, I wanted to expose a high radiation dose to people who did have no consideration~~!
