It comes to my revelation that the older Singaporean are getting obnoxious and rude. They seemed to think that it’s their deserving right to keep rattling on and on and disrupt the relatively quiet peace in the public transport.
They would throw a dirty look if anyone sat on the reserve seats, and thinks that it’s only solely for them and them alone. And they think they are allowed to throw vulgarities at anyone and everyone who stand in their way.
I understand that they are the pioneer generation, and the ones whom paved the way of present-day Singapore. But that doesn’t allow them to be forever in the foul mood and making any destination unpleasant with their constant rattle and vulgarities.
And if they are not happy, they will scream “stomp” like it’s a police, judge, jury all at the same time.
And while yes, we must give up out seats for them, we don’t deserve the screaming and black face when we are seated at “their” seat. They weren’t there when we chose to seat on those reserved seats. And we know better that these older generation needs these seats more so than us.
We will give those seats up, don’t need to scream the minute you see us seated. We still need a second or two to react!
I think while the government decides to teach the community a thing or two about respect and courtesy, maybe it should consider teaching the forgetful older generation a but of patience and manners too.
