1. Ask the right questions
2. Be more consultative, including thoughts on whether they sound logical
3. Come up with creative, non-standard replies everytime
4. Have the motivation to always do better
5. Do something for everyone and make them happy
6. Work towards the resurrection of Steve Jobs so that the world can be a better place
7. Are careful about definitions, e.g. "reverent"
I do know one talent who fits the bill of all the above.. Unfortunately he is too busy chit-chatting and has not stepped up to the task to make Singapore a better place for you and for me and the entire human race..
Heard got one guy complained he was jammed for 2 hours in MCE…
Give me idea.
Just decided to open a few stalls around the exit area and inside MCE….. i will be selling drinks, crackers and even pop corns to the victims who where caught in the jams.
During peak periods, i will be charging extra $1 so that the flow will be smoother for my stalls, if it doesn't help. i will charge higher.
I will be a billionaire soon.
Eat breath LIVERPOOL!!!
It's only the first few days. There will be many curious people trying out the expressway. Of course it will be more congested that usual. There are also motorists who do not really know the direction yet and will slow down. Once they slow down, the traffic behind will slow down too, hence causing a jam. Just give it a few days, I'm sure it will not be that jialat anymore.
The (distance covered) in taxi receipt may be wrong.
But the bill and timing tallies. He paid $44.55 for meter fare (excluding other nonsensical add-ons). Say, he traveled short distance before being caught in jam. e.g. $4.55 worth.
Say he paid $40 to sit in jam. Taxi meter is calibrated to skip 20 cents every 25 seconds when taxi is stationary in a traffic jam.
4000/20 = 200 taxi fare skip segments
200 x 25 seconds = 5000 seconds = 83.33 minutes
That is about 1 hour 23 minutes or 83 minutes waiting in jam. Which is within overall trip time of 101 minutes.
AFAIK, the meter is calibrated so the distance is right. Else, he would be paying way more if the distance was shorter.
