Now you know where the bad habits stem from. Look, it bloody doesn't make a difference whether you stand in the center or not. Either way you still have to wait for everyone to alight before you board. Oh yes, it does make some sort of difference - you become a major annoyance to every alighting passenger.
Easiest thing to do is such circumstances is take a photo of the tourists snapping away like crazy, and lodge a very diplomatic but questioning letter to the ST forums/STOMP etc. Might as well send a copy to the PMO's as well.
Caleb, you have just illustrated the point I made much earlier - when I see a problem child ...
There's a clear reasoning behind observations made here, and IIRC it was identified a loooong time ago by our MM: Unfortunately, ours is a society that understands only two things; punishment and reward.
OK, I won't go into sociological and psychological issues, which would eventually lead to political ones, but the 'obvious' is fairly clear for the more observant to see.
You're so cynical!
It's true. You can only do your part to make Singapore a better place. There are, and will always be, people out there who can't be the least bothered.
All I can say is do your part. What other people do, you have no control over - sure you can teach them, but they will only change as much as they are willing to learn. This willingness comes with humility - another attribute that is sorely missing in society today.
Wonder if there's a cam that's off the colour of human skin...
I think we place too much value on human lives. I have always said and it seem to be getting more truer then I giving it credit for... Human Being are nothing more then a "virus with shoes". Travel out into outer space and look down and you can see clearly what we are doing to this piece rock we call planet earth. It looks no better then what a science student staring into a microscope would see...that is a virus attacking a living tissue.
The good news in my view is that if global warming does happen and we are the one that caused it...we will all be worm food and mother earth will heal itself and restart life again. Let's see then what the primodial soup will evolve next...I hope it would be something better then us. hehe.
Anyone listen to standup comedy? There is this standup comedian call Bill Engvall in the USA. He is famous of a trademark humour in which about stupid people. He would quote something really stupid someone would remark to him and then he would come out with a cheeky rebuttal and then he makes this imaginary gesture of pass to you a signboard which say "stupid person" something for you to wear around your neck so that people will know to avoid you or not bother to ask you to so more "difficult" task. heheh. That is just how I feel each day I see someone stupid but then again..another part of me makes me feel better. For each stupid person I come across I am thankful I am not them and I will survive better then them even if I am older. I feel that there is less competition for anything I want. heheh.
Caleb, are you sure you're just a student?
Sometime, you makes statements with the weight of wisdom that comes with living ... a long time. Or a lot of reading and discernment.
it aint easy pushing past someone who weighs about 90kg, and has determination not to be pushed back..
Some of the most commonly hated people.
C'mon, they are just doing their jobs..
