    Default Using MRT seats for your Bag

    Today I was on board the MRT I notice this man who place his camera bag on a seat in a crowded train. When somebody told he should not do that he got very angry. He said if he place the bag on the floor people may kick it and damage his gear. He went as far as saying people on the train may trip on his bag and get hurt if he place it on the floor.

    I found it a rather lame excuse. He should have just sorry and place his bag on the floor.

    Agreed. Quite bad behaviour Why didn't you tell him you are a photographer yourself and ask him to put the bad under the seats where no one will hit it and damage his precious gear? Or he could just put it on his lap if he is so concerned

    perhaps his gear has a life of it's own and thus needs a butt rest.

    He should place the bag on his laps.

    Or is it possessed.

    I would have done so but so many other people were already scolding him. But I found it strange is he didn't seem faze by their scolding and ignored them. I figured it would be pointless to scold him.

    You should join in to slam him .... tell him to place the bag on his lap and dont worry about his gear getting damage from the train braking or ppl tripping on him coz his balls can cushion his gears in whatever conditions.
    Such selfish person!

    Giving a bad name to all photographers.

    I take the public transport too and I will usually place my camera bag on my lap. If a little kick on the bag will damage his gears I wonder what cam & bag is he using?

    One can always place the bad under his seat instead of infront or between his legs. He was just being a pain in the a$$. If you really have a bag for photographer, I don't see how kicking it in the normal sense could have damage his damn gear.

    Some people are like that...they don't seem tounderstand that the price of your ride is for you to get from one point to another ..white you sit or stand. Some people treat the train like their music room, reading room, bedroom and their personal belonging is more important then the needs of other people who should be given fair use of the seat or space on the train. Everyday if I don't see at least 6 persons exhibiting this behavour per trip..I am surprise. It is ramphant without sounding like I am exaggerating.

    talking about cammy bags on mrt, i saw schoolkids (about 10 years old) put schoolbag on seat next to them..on mrt / bus and ignore the rest...and the bus is full too.

    well, i know i am evil, ..but they deserve to be "niao" by the people around them.
