    hahaha... reminds me.

    This cabbie who refused to accept VISA even though my fare was $18. He said, "Machine spoil." in the end, its more like, "I don't know how to operate the VISA machine." and I have to show HIM how to do it.

    To top it all off, his driving was horrible, nearly got into a couple of rear end banging, e-brakes, clutch throwing and speeding.

    With cabbies like this, we need legislation enforced to ensure that cheating cabbies get their licensed axed and not a clampdown on so-called 'cheating passengers'.

    People pay to have good service in other countries. In our country, we pay and must bow to the person and he must feel good before we can get service of any kind.

    but seriously, it quite ridiculous if u think carefully about it...

    1. a person cheats a PRIVATE company, and he gets thrown into a PUBLIC PRISON? wasting tax payers money? so is there some special tie up between the private company and our prisons? in my opinion, he shd just be fined and the fine go to the private companies. afterall, we are a FINE city wat

    2. are we one of the very few privilleged countries where PRIVATE companies can request the local garment to impose LAWS to help safe guard their own interests?

    3. if there is a hardware or software malfunction, and our cards dont get sensed and as a result are not detected, then will it be a case of the private company cheating us and then sue us for cheating and then we get jailed?

    4. think that we are in one of those countries where the garment is the sole winner. i mean, even the bookies are going out of job liao, so i guess as they always say in the army, LPPL, lan lan suck thumb....

    maybe after this, i may just be thrown in under isa....
    Someone needs to tell these firms that they can't get away with swinging their fat arms around like a miserly bozo with an IQ of a drunk squirrel.Public transport in Singapore is no longer a public department, there is something terribly flawed with this profit-oriented system of transport.

    And pray tell how does a so-called private transport company manage to get the act of being cheated into the Penal Code all of a sudden?Private?I think not.Profit driven?Yes.

    Willing to jail cheats just to maximise profit?Now that's killing a robber with a Primus isn't it..boy we are the kings of intelligent hyperbole on this Earth eh..

    He!he! Exactly the same thing happened to me when I was young (and that was long ago!!) in Holland. I went out for a swim at a swimmingpool, about 10 KM away from where I lived.......

    On the way home we went into a bus, but we were short of money (after spending some of the money for food after swimming, and we calculated wrongly the amount as we were unsure how much the trip would cost; we were brought there by car).......the driver didn't allow us into the bus, not even for the money amount we had.......

    After calling home to pick us up, the person who was to pick us up couldn't find us (and this was in a time when there were no handphones, no pagers).......

    It was getting dark, and we decided to just walk the 10 KM back home.........:-)

    The driver or the ppl in-charge would prolly be thinking, "Hey, she already got a lift up to the point where her $1 would take her. What more she want?"

    And what's that we hear the last time say about promoting a 'gracious society'?
    Can also say that about the other people inside the bus, those who at least knew what was happening, couldn't they just help the girl with some small coins to pay for the remaining trip????

I say friend and the answer is 'call the parent, if not i can't do anything'

    Before midnight taxi drivers disappears and suddenly appears afterwards. The solution? Staggered charge (commuter pay the price)... Peak hours and taxi nowhere to be found, but when you call they suddenly appear due to booking fee (commuter pay the price)...

    I think there may be a good reason for a family member to be there, not only the money matter.........am not a doctor, so don't know the reason....

    Or maybe the doctor was a 'convicted' paedofile, and can not be left alone with young innocent, and wounded patients?

    Today's Straits Times just posted an article on the buggy EZ-Link system.... days after the above news on getting jailed for cheating bus/cab fares. Apparently 25% of refunds was due to this.....

    Hmmm... makes me wonder will they pull off another TT.Durai on this... hahahah!
