Cerita Pizza 12:

Bali. Gaji

Jika saat pagi setiap hari saya bersua mamah-mamah muda, di akhir pekan malam, teman saya di warung pizza sebagian besar anak-anak SMA. Tampaknya, hanya saya yang matang dan ranum di antara gerombolan SMA ini. (wes, ora usah protes). Ini terkadang membuat saya harus update dengan isu-isu anak SMA di sini. Termasuk menghadapi polah mereka yang kadang naif.

Misalnya, sebut saja Bunga, yang baru lulus SMA, yang juga pemain footy. Tinggi dengan kaki sudah babak belur tak karuan akibat footy. Terakhir, tulang betisnya hampir keluar. Itulah kenapa dia cuti panjang dan minggu lalu berlibur ke Bali. Ini liburan pertamanya ke Bali. Maka kemarin malam, saya disuguhi banyak cerita dan pertanyaan soal Bali.

“Satrya, do you drink Balinese water?”
“Balinese water? What do you mean?”
“Did you drink water in Bali?”
“Yes of course. What kind of question is that?”
“I did not. I drink from water bottle”
“Oh, do you mean tap water? Yes, still.i just need to boil it first”
“I did not. I brush my teeth using water bottle as well”
“Wow, you want to participate in the Survivor series and you are afraid drinking tap water…”

Dia ketawa. Sadar kalau saya lagi nyindir dia. Lalu soal gaji.

“Satrya, do you believe it, my travel driver’s salary is only 4 million a month. Its only 400 dollars..”
“Yeah…that is very common..”
“But, how can you live with only 400 dollars a month?”

Nduk…gajiku dadi dosen loh gak sampe sak mono. Jek urip sampe saiki.
