    Here have a lot of crazy idea of 'chopping'.

    I was at Alexandra road yesterday evening to buy dinner. A car parked 2 lots and i went up asked : kindly park your car properly so i can park in. He told me as you know it is very hard to get a lot here. The 2 lots one of it he reserved for a friend who is on the way.

    I suck thumb lor. So he chope lots with his car. What can i do.

    park your car infront of his, so he cant drive away, than call police? record whole thing and post in storm and CS.

    actually, honest to god, i wanted to say that, but here will be people saying it is too far fatch, like some of my friends. cant blame them, these things, you have to have a personal encounter to believe. than again, there will be those who believe lightning dont strike same place twice.

    Personally, I see nothing wrong with that.

    I'd wave it around and ask if it belongs to anyone. A naked $50 unclaimed on the table is fair game. Otherwise, why don't people try using that to chope seats? So are you going to call the cops on me if I took a piece of tissue from your packet and blew my nose with it?

    It's not an acceptable practice because if it were, it wouldn't be such a hot topic in the first place. It only seems that way because the ones who are annoyed prefer to let things slide, and this is taken advantage of the selfish few to make it an "acceptable practice". And of course, after a while, "if you can't beat them, join them" - everyone seems to do it.

    - But that still doesn't make that "acceptable" practice.

    It shouldn't be.

    It's shameful.

    when push comes to shove, some peps will do wadever it takes to get their way. sometimes it betta not to escalate an issue, not when its uncertain how long the men in blue will arrive on scene.

    men in blue very short of manpower, if not lucky encounter hooligan. u bet on passersby coming to ur aid when things get ugly...

    i came across this twist,

    1) 1st time they gave me a "jolly good time", but i let police handle, nothing happen (went for hospital check up + sub-court).

    2) than 2nd time similar thing happened, so i had a "jolly good time party" with that groups since police dont do nothing.

    edit : so my question to you is, are you up for the game? is it worth your while to stand up for whats right? also, if you ever en-counter 1 such case personally, will you still do the right thing (minority's view in this case) in the future? will you be man enough to do it with your love ones with you? can you protect them? yes, you can make police report, yes, police may be able to arrest the people, but harm to you and your love ones already happen, does that makes you feel better?

    edit : they are different groups.
    Really sorry to hear of your unfortunate encounters. Maybe you were simply at the wrong place and at the wrong time. and I do understand your concerns arising from these bad incidents.

    However, that also seems like a threat of some sorts to cower to the unreasonable? Of course we have to protect ourselves, so thinking a bit would be important. Most of the time, the tissue packet owner uses the packet to chope four seats (as in a fast food restaurant). I'd still take the seat, and when the person comes back, there are still three seats for him to choose.

    The location also plays an important part. Of course I wouldn't do so in Geylang at 11pm. Otherwise, seriously, I am not worried.

    By and large, the fear of most people is probably not from getting beaten up. It's more of being embarrassed in public by the office girl who gives you the stare, the auntie who would scream at you, and all the kaypohs videoing the incident and posting it to STOMP!
