    I can find another wife but I cannot find another mom. There is no substitute. In my life my mum comes first, no matter what. My father comes after that followed by my wife.

    nowadays we see so many cases of doctors, lawyers, bankers and other such professional landing on the wrong side of the law..... they think they're invincible behind their precious paper qualifications? poetic justice, perhaps?

    Doctors are a funny breed indeed. Some are not even very intelligent people.
    Only a pharmacuetical salesperson would understand how cruel and sadistic they can be. Man, the many stories I've heard about them. Sometimes I wonder how they can be in the profession.

    Well, in this sort of case, there's always "his" story, "her" story and the "true" story. So far, we've only heard "her" side, and in domestic disputes, there is usually a whole plethora of reasons why something like that may happen.

    Drug representatives try to sell products to doctors. Their bonuses depend on making a certain level of sales per month (ie: sales target). They have a tough job, meeting targets, promoting their products in a competitive environment (there are lots of drug companies selling similar products).

    Sometimes drug representatives push too hard, and sometimes doctors squeeze the reps too hard. These are the dynamics of this trade. Invariably cases crop up where either one or both parties can cross the line. I can tell you some pretty bad drug representative stories if you care to listen.

    The point I'm trying to make is this: "Funny" and "Not very intelligent" people exist in all industries, be it in Accountancy, Law, Business, IT, Politics, etc...... That's life, isn't it?

    i've met quite a few of the younger doctors these days. most of them seem to be lacking in some social aspects. like they got some big chip on their shoulder.

    You list your occupation as healthcare. Are you a doctor yourself?

    I think that happens across the board. There's always these type of people in all walks of life.

    I'm certain that there are other such cases around, it's just that this case gets published due to the sensationalism it has the potential to cause. Not surprising, since it's a rag like "The New Paper".

    In fact this is not an isolated case. Lots of such things are going on everyday. There is no other alternative unless all sit down and talk. As the saying goes, every family has their problems, but after all, it's one family, and disputes should be solved through understanding.
    There's nothing wrong with old people working. It keeps them healthy, like what my Dad says: Am I gonna let my bones get rusty?

    Actually of all people the son should know the benefits of keeping active.
    I contantly see old people literally wither away and die after being put into a home for the elderly (normally they last only about 2-5yrs). Studies have shown that old people who are not kept active or occupied are more succeptible to suffering dementia and depression.

    I used to help out in an old folks home and I see the suffering that these poor people go through. Sure, they may have been cretins in their younger days but shutting them up in a home or abandoning them is very cruel indeed. A lot of them are just waiting to die.

    WRT the article in question - I think the son wanted her to stop working because it was an embarrasment to him to have his mother working as a cleaner.

    true.. but from personal experience i've had to deal with high-fliers and professionals before and very often i'm thankful that at the end of the day i have my humanity intact.

    of course it's a tabloid. and yes, i agree we should not accept 100% of what tabloids tell us. but the principles of the story remain the same

    1) the son called the mom "old woman" and admitted during the interview that he chased his mom out
    2) the son earns $200,000 a year compared to $1,300 a month for 2 jobs for his mom
    3) the wife is a senior HR manager
    4) the son chased his mom out the very day that ownership was transferred to him
    5) the son said his wife was embarassed when she saw her mother in law cleaning tables in food courts during her lunchtime
    6) the son placed his mom's belongings outside her house.

    wipe away all the sensationalism that the TNP adds and you are left with these findings of fact. as much as journalists want to sensationalise news, they're not given free rein in singapore unlike that in the states or UK. facts have to remain as facts.

    A lot of them let it go to their heads and develop engorged egos. They are legends in their own lunchtimes.

    he is greater embarassment to the human race than having a mom who works an honest living as a cleaner.

    this is what you read from the article...its not the in depth analysis of the true facts with all the parties...

    I agree. There isn't much the other side can argue about. Perhaps if he gave her back the ownership of the home first then they can say something.
