Low Tires...

Indonesian people are pretty chill, but they really lose there shit over somethings. For instance a group of four 8 year old boys can ride past on a motor bike with no helmets, but if your push bike has low tires every nanek in the city will flag you down to tell you and they will insist you air them immediately!

Another instance is asking for directions. Indonesians have a strange concept of distance, so when asking for directions if the place you are going is more than 100 meters away it is JAUH! They go crazy telling you how far away it is and that you just need to keep heading straight then turn left, and the directions are usually always preceded with a "Kalau ingat salah..." which is good because more often than not directions are wrong. If they say it twice, you know they have no clue where you need to go. But, the upside to this is that you can ask absolutely everyone for directions and on about the 3rd time they will be right, which means you never have to worry about getting lost.
