Lemming!! Malaysia is full of Lemming
There I was being buzzzed by my HP indicating an SMS had arrived, my gud fren had sms me "Lemmings!! Malaysia is full of lemmings.... and so the msg went.
Initially I did not realise the impact of the implication of the message. Only after a rebuttle sms that went like "Your point would be?" was a voiced reply.... I laughed at the reasoning but it also dawned upon me how true the sms was.
Aside from the idiot driving on the emergency lane.. of course
.It is the "lemming syndrome".... one morning everyone will wake up and start running down to the ocean and start swimming out..... it will never occur to anyone to turn back and they will all drown..... they just do it... well it aint a Nike advert
So what does Lemming mean..
A "lemming" became slang for someone who would blindly follow someone else no matter what, even if it was an incredibly stupid thing to do, against all common sense, against self preservation.
Aint some of us in our lives are like that!!! So are you a lemming?
