Bas-bis-bus

Another short twitalk I made several days ago.

a T-shirt with label “Good. How about you?” on it will be sold well! People can just point to the label every time someone asks “Whats up?”

1. Siapa blg cmn org indo yg jago basa-basi. Bule2 juga jago bas-bis-bus. Banyak case studynya. After 8 months I sort of find the pattern.

2. Bule seattle sndiri sbnrnya terkenal cold, ga suka bas-bis-bus. Istilahnya “Seattle freezing”. Org blg krn efek cuaca.

3. Tap emang bule dari sononya suka basa-basi juga. Basa-basi plg normal adalah nanya kabar. how is it going on? Whats up? How r u? Etc

4. Nah kalau org nanya gt. i should just simply answer “good” or “it is okay” and dilanjut dengan nanya balik.

5. Hal yg plg tabu adalah menjawab lbh panjang dari itu. “not really okay. I have 5 assignments this week” si bulenya bakal ngacir

6. Krn emank nanya “apa kabarnya” sbnrnya cmn salam “hi, gw tau ada lu disitu”. Titik. Gw ga mau tau kabar/prasaan lu.

6. Even ketemu tukangn kebun yg ga kenal jg harus nglakuin ritual bas-bis-bus how are you itu. Sembari senyum lebar.

8. Dari bas-bis-bus itu biasanya bisa tau seberapa penting/sbrp dalam hub kita ama org lain. Level plg jelek kalau bas-bis-bus sambil jalan.

9. Sambil papasan, sambil ritual whats up-good-how bout you. Haha. Level kedua, kalau orgnya berhenti. Setelah ritual ngobrol dikit.

10. Nah kalau di level kedua in, org mulai naik level bas-bis-busnha. Mulai “sok” ajak makan/ngopi/jalan, dll.

11, “we should have a beer sometimes! How about this weekend?”tp ttp cmn bas-bis-bus. Jgn pernah kosongkan hari buat janji2 ky gn.

12. Nah level terakhir, kalau udah beneran temen. Ritual bas-bis-bus tetep berjalan. Tp mulai detail.”what are going to do today?”

13. And kalau ajak jalan mulai SPEFISIK. “lets go to the third place pub this friday at 6pm. Will u be available?”

14. Kalau nanya gt, baru gw pkr serius ajakannya. So skrg gw ikutin permainan mereka. Kalau ga gt kenal pake mantera bas-bis-bus level1

15. Kalau agak keal pake bas-bis-bus lvel2 “we should have dim sum together sometime!” *sometime: sampai gw kenal lu

16. And kalau udah kenal deket baru diajak “lets go to indo!” haha. So….how is it going everyone? *bas-bis-bus* end
