    Default selfish people

    On the bus and got a seat. Both looks empty. Then when I sat down, two plastic bags found at the inside seat.

    I ask the foreigners from the back whether are hers and she still can say yes and don't bother to remove.

    When a lady with items stand beside me, I ask them to remove the things. One of them still have the cheek to ask me, you ask her want to sit or not. I answer her back, it's not right to put things there at first.

    I tap the lady with bags n she just sit on it. Nowadays no need scare of selfish foreigner liao. Enough of their behaviour.
    Only Sony device mostly, haha!

    Oh?

    A number of times in the morning when I take the train to work I cannot get on when there is clearly space. I recall the last incident where the MRT officer asked people to move in to let waiting passengers get on and they did not. I tried to board as there was really sufficient space available, and someone (sounded local) swore vulgarities at me and kicked me. I chose not to respond because there did not seem to be any plus point to doing so. It's sad that he would rather resist letting people on (and thus they might end up being late for work, and this effect flows on to the next train and the next and the next) because of his desire to have space to watch his movie on his Samsung S3. I believe no local transportation company (public or private) will promise enough space for everyone to watch movies on their smartphones.

    There are black sheep everywhere. Be the change you want to see.

    This is where camera comes in. MRT officers be equipped with cameras to snap photos then display at the station to shame these people. See how.

    i would respond if there's really space behind that fella. For those ppl who keep blocking my way after a few "excuse mes", i would push them out of the way. These ppl are bullies in a way. If we do not respond, this behaviour will continue. Same for those irritating idiots who read newspapers with arms wide open even though the train is packed.

    I didn't target foreigner and indeed they are. I ever fedup with local before. As long they are in the wrong, I hack care who they are. On top of that, foreigners are almost half of local soon, how to avoid them when they think that they always right?

    Never seen you complain about locals before.

    Everyone thinks they have never sinned in a particular way... But sin is sin. No matter what it is.

    If you've done it before to others, don't complain about others who've done it to you

    Aren't my neighbour local? I did complain about them making noise. As long that person did wrong, I sure complain. I even complain about cyclists, which consists of local and foreigners.

    There are locals AND foreigners who always think they are right.

    I think ed9119's point is no different from mine - there are black sheep everywhere. Your last sentence, whether you realise it or not, has an implicit assumption that "foreigners think they always right", which is not true - either because not all foreigners are like that, or because there are also locals who do that.

    I think it's ok to highlight your experience and share your thoughts but it's also good to know what you are saying too.

    Local might do that but not to the extent that uses the seat in front for it and have the cheek to question you back. The lady who is standing obviously don't hand to hold on to and stands steady. They got eyes to see, but still, they ignore.

    Got a posting on some one puts the items on the chairs at wet canteen but I support it cause those floor are dirty and it's quite a lot of it.

    If we don't stand up as Singaporean, we will be the next sabah soon.

    I give up, you obviously don't get the point. When we all lose objectiveness, that is when it is a sad day. Cheers.
