  • Oh my god.

  • My name is May.

  • I am going to be late for work for the fifth time in a month due to not being able to wake up on time.

  • It sucks that I have to be punctual for a very important meeting this morning.

  • So if I cannot go back on time, I am going to be in a deep trouble.

  • Aiya...

  • It hurts so much.

  • Aiya

  • It hurts so much.

  • Why is everyone just watching but not coming over to help me?

  • Ei.

  • Er.

  • Wei.

  • Lady, are you alright?

  • Do you need me to take you to a hospital?

  • Hai? Why?

  • Why doesn't anybody care when I fell?

  • In contrast, why does she deserve everyone's attention?

  • She is only slightly prettier than me, a bit more dress up than me and

  • a little bit slimmer than me.

  • Isn't that the reason why people have treated me as invisible?

  • Lady, may I help you?

  • Do you know why this happened?

  • This phenomenon can actually be explained by a psychological theory.

  • When an accident happens in a crowded street, a lot of people would initially offer help for someone in need and it seems to be the most common behaviors as we might think.

  • But the reality is that, as everyone think in this way, no one would take action to help May.

  • This phenomenon is called Diffusion of Responsibility.

  • Then I would like to ask you,

  • In what reasons there are a few men who help the other lady out of their eagerness?

  • Is there anything you want to talk?

  • If no, I have to leave.

  • Sigh, this is me.

  • I blame it on myself for not being expressive.

  • No wonder others consider me as a boring person.

  • But I am actually not a boring type. I also dream of a boyfriend like any other girls do.

  • I just don’t know how.

  • Maybe he can help...

Oh my god.
